Hardwood Flooring, With Style & Quality at a Great Price.
Engineered hardwood flooring is a great alternative to solid hardwood that doesn’t detract from the familiar historic sensibility that wood floors bring to a space. Engineered hardwood flooring has a number of advantages over solid hardwood that make it a great option for a wide variety of rooms and purposes.
Deerfoot Carpet and Flooring is able to offer our engineered hardwood flooring products at competitively affordable prices because we conduct our business with a healthy measure of independence. Our private warehouse allows us to significantly reduce shipping costs and wait times, and the logistics and complications that so often face companies who use third party installers are virtually non-existent for our customers.
Engineered for durability.
Unlike the solid hardwoods that are cut as whole planks from a single tree, an engineered hardwood plank is manufactured from many layers of carefully selected plywood that are bonded with heat, pressure and adhesives so that the result is an engineered hardwood plank that not only has extreme strength and toughness but also has a significantly reduced tendency to shrink, grow or warp. Engineered hardwood has a much greater resistance to humidity and can be installed in places where solid hardwood would quickly become damaged and infested with mold. Overall, engineered hardwood makes for a very long lasting and low maintenance flooring material.
Nearly endless possibilities.
Engineered hardwood comes in a huge range of wood species and textures and can be topped with any finish you prefer. The surface of these floors can be extremely versatile and adaptable, and with such impressive durability in the material, engineered hardwood is a very dependable long-term investment. Although solid hardwood lends itself to more extensive sanding, engineered hardwood can be sanded to a reasonable extent as well, and once it is sanded, it can be refinished and restyled to match a new décor.
Installation from trained & certified professionals.
Installation comes easier to engineered hardwood than it does to the classic solid material. The boards can be laid quickly and easily with a good amount of precision, and some brands can even be designed with a click system for more efficient installation.
Deerfoot Carpet and Flooring has an excellent privately-operated team of installers on standby who are ready to serve our customers’ needs. Our installers are certified, insured and bondable, and unlike many companies today they do not work as a third party to Deerfoot. This way our customers can be confident that they are getting installation service from appropriately trained professionals who have been using our products for several years, some with more than 30 years of experience in the field.
