Engineered Hardwood in Commercial Spaces? Absolutely.

Commercial spaces require flooring that can withstand constant wear and tear from heavy foot traffic and demanding conditions. Unlike residential floors, commercial engineered hardwood flooring must endure the scuffs, scratches, dents, and stains caused by thousands of people walking, moving merchandise, and dining daily.

Despite these challenges, engineered hardwood flooring remains a popular choice for commercial establishments like hotels, cafes, pubs, and bars due to its durability, stability, convenience, and aesthetic appeal.

Engineered Hardwood Durability

Engineered hardwood floors, featuring a solid plywood core layer topped with a hardwood veneer, offer enhanced stability and resistance to warping or swelling compared to solid hardwood planks. They are also more resistant to moisture, making them suitable for environments where solid wood cannot be installed. Additionally, engineered wood floors can be sanded and refinished multiple times, ensuring longevity in high-traffic commercial buildings.

Construction Compatibility

Engineered wood flooring is well-suited for commercial projects, which often involve steel-sided construction and concrete slabs. Unlike most solid wood floors, engineered wood can be successfully installed over concrete slabs, provided the correct steps are taken to properly prepare the subfloor ahead of time.

Engineered Hardwood Care & Maintenance

Routine maintenance for engineered hardwood floors involves simple tasks like sweeping or dust mopping. Vacuuming is also effective. While engineered hardwood floors can't be sanded down as many times as solid wood, they require less frequent refinishing due to their top layer finish, which tends to last longer. Most engineered hardwood floors only require refinishing about twice over their lifetime, and the top veneer is more than substantial enough to withstand this. Simply put, caring for hardwood floors is not overly complicated, however, understanding and implementing the proper maintenance steps will ensure longevity and appearance. 

Return on Investment 

Engineered hardwood flooring offers a timeless appeal that withstands changing design trends, making it a valuable asset with enduring value. When evaluating flooring options, wood flooring stands out for its cost-effectiveness and potential to increase property value. Prospective buyers or tenants often perceive wood flooring as a premium feature. As a result, engineered hardwood flooring installations can provide a significant return on investment when selling or renting out the property in the future.

Engineered hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for commercial spaces due to its durability, construction compatibility, easy maintenance, and potential return on investment. With the ability to withstand heavy foot traffic and enhance the aesthetic appeal of any space, engineered hardwood flooring offers lasting value for commercial property owners.
