The Hard(wood) Truth about Engineered Flooring

Unlike the ever changing styles and colors and textures of carpet, wood flooring is classic and timeless. That is, until the wood becomes scratched from daily traffic, discolored from spills and mistreatment, creaky from age, and warped from the Bryan-College Station humidity. WIth proper care and treatment, it is not atypical for traditional, homogenous wood flooring to gracefully age. But with new technologies and synthetic materials, the flooring options available by Magruder Homes offer the traditional look and feel of wood flooring, but with a little more peace of mind. Let’s break down the truth, plank by plank, about the Engineered Wood flooring  options that Magruder Homes proudly installs in our Bryan-College Station new homes and custom remodels.

  1. Same Look, Same Feel, Different Durability. Because Engineered Wood is composed of multiple layers of cross sectioned hardwood and soft plywood, Magruder Homes flooring is resistant to warping and damage due to the high humidity of Bryan-College Station.
  2. It’s Green. Okay, the color isn’t necessarily green. But, Engineered Hardwood Flooring is environmentally friendly and economically friendly. Because Engineered Hardwood Flooring is created using less expensive woods, you’re not only saving cash but you’re also preserving pricier types of wood.
  3. The Take-Away. Engineered Hardwood Flooring is real wood, don’t be confused or led astray in that fact. With a veneer top coat and compacted plywood base, Engineered Hardwood Flooring is the quality you’d expect in Magruder new home construction.

At Magruder Homes in Bryan-College Station, our new homes and renovations receive the highest quality, most durable outfitting. A choice for longevity and beauty, Engineered Hardwood flooring has the look and feel of traditional hardwood flooring, but with the added advantage of technology that is resistant to age and wear.
