Engineered wood flooring has become a popular choice for homeowners in New Zealand due to its durability, versatility and natural beauty. But how long does an engineered wooden floor last in New Zealand? The answer depends on a number of factors, including the quality of the flooring, the level of foot traffic in your home and the level of care and maintenance you provide.
Choose the highest quality hardwood flooring with Kährs Life range, combining the authentic look of a wooden floor with unparalleled performance. The quality of the flooring you choose will have a significant impact on how long it lasts. The thickness of the top layer of hardwood will vary depending on the manufacturer and the specific product, but generally, the thicker the top layer, the longer the flooring will last. Cheaper engineered wood flooring may have a thinner top layer, which means it will wear down faster and need to be replaced sooner.
The level of foot traffic in your home will also play a role in how long your engineered wood flooring lasts. Homes with high foot traffic, such as those with children and pets, will naturally experience more wear and tear on their flooring. If you have a lot of foot traffic in your home, premium engineered flooring is the way to go and Kährs is an industry leader, renowned for its durability and longevity as they are better able to withstand wear and tear.
The amount of care and maintenance you provide for your engineered wood flooring will also impact its lifespan, although engineered wood is very easy to maintain. Regular cleaning and maintenance, including sweeping or vacuuming the floor and wiping up spills immediately, will help keep your flooring looking its best and prevent damage. Additionally, you may need to refinish your flooring every few years to maintain its appearance and protect it from damage.
So, how long can you expect your engineered wood flooring to last in New Zealand? On average, high-quality engineered wood flooring can last anywhere from 20 to 30 years or more, depending on the factors mentioned above. However, Kährs Life was created to last through real life.
