Ultraviolent rays of the sun exposed to hardwood surfaces for long durations, fade and dry-out, crack and cut wood flooring material at accelerated rates. Direct rays of the sun often produce extreme temperature build-up on hardwood flooring material surfaces not blocked by modern advanced engineered glass of today's windows. Closing of drapes to protect wood material contradicts the original intent of installing such flooring material, to reflect light in an otherwise dull and dark room. Adequate application of an approved wax, protects the top and under-lying surfaces, blocking all harmful expose to sunlight, maintaining and protecting the flooring surface with an coating of the top layer continuing the warmth and relaxing nature that hardwood floors provide to any interior room.
Installation Advantages – One other advantage of engineered hardwood floors is that a floating install can be applied directly over vinyl or a concrete slab or any other existing material that is hard and level without the expense and necessity of a subfloor. Manufacturers recommend that a 4-6 mil vapor barrier be installed over the under-surface if moisture is likely to be a problem. Durable Coatings – Traditional finishing products are used on engineered hardwood floors, but other finishes are available that are much more durable than the products available for site application. Quality manufacturers apply 7-10 coats of aluminum oxide crystals or diamond dust to make the engineered hardwood finish harder than anything that could be applied on site or even purchased in a Home Depot. Engineered hardwood floors come with as much as a 25-year warranty.
