Q: Mirage or *****- Engineered hardwood flooring? I’ve been looking at both brands and can’t decide which is better and why? Will engineered hardwood cup? We do not run our air conditioner that much in the summer and our RH level was reading around 70 plus on an extremely humid day – most of the time it is 62+. For this reason we are looking at engineered, but reluctant to make the leap! Thanks for your help!
A: Any wood will cup and twist if enough moisture is present. Are you expecting a flood? My experience with ***** products has not been good. Mirage engineered wood flooring has an excellent engineered floor with a thick wear layer. I’d go with them if I was installing that type of floor, but I’m a fan of solid wood.
