The Benefits of Engineered Hardwood Flooring for High-Traffic Areas


Enhancing Durability and Style: Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Flooring is one of the most essential elements of any space—be it your home or a commercial setting. The kind of flooring you choose can greatly influence not just the aesthetics of the area, but also its durability and ease of maintenance. One type that is increasingly becoming the go-to choice for high-traffic areas is engineered hardwood flooring. At Cochran’s Lumber, we offer an extensive selection of engineered wood options that combine beauty with functionality. Let’s delve into why engineered hardwood could be the best choice for your high-traffic areas.

Durability: Built to Last

Engineered hardwood consists of a top layer of genuine hardwood bonded to several layers of high-quality plywood. This multi-layer construction enhances the floor’s strength, making it more resilient to heavy footfall, be it in your home’s entryway or a busy office corridor. In fact, we’ve put so much thought into our engineered wood floors that you’ll find them lasting years, possibly decades, with minimal signs of wear and tear.

Moisture Resistance: Worry Less, Live More

Unlike traditional hardwood, engineered hardwood performs well under varying humidity levels. Its layered structure reduces the wood’s natural tendency to expand or contract, providing excellent moisture resistance. So, whether you’re planning to install flooring in your kitchen or a commercial restroom, Cochran’s engineered hardwood flooring has you covered.

Ease of Installation: Quick and Painless

One of the standout features of engineered hardwood flooring is its ease of installation. The boards often come with a click-lock system, making the installation process much quicker than traditional hardwood flooring. This means less disruption to your day-to-day activities, and for our professional customers like builders and installers, it equates to quicker project turnaround times.

Versatility: Endless Choices
