engineered hardwood

2 Replies

Hello. I have a fixer upper. It is a duplex. I plan on renting it out. I want to make it updated but minimize my cost.

I plan on using a engineered hardwood in the whole house. It is nice quality trafficmaster that I have used in higher end houses.

My question is it okay to use in a bathroom instead of tile? Any one have knowledge or experience in this area? Thanks.

Hey Scot, we will put this product in bathrooms in our flips sometimes, it looks great. However, we haven't put it in the bathrooms of our rentals. For us, we'd rather put tile in the rentals.  This just mitigates the risk that a renter will expose the material to too much moisture because they aren't going to be as conscious about it as a homeowner may be.
