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.
