Engineered hardwood


Engineered hardwood flooring facts

Engineered wood flooring is a type of hardwood taking over a significant share of the wood flooring industry because it appeals to people who want both beauty and practicality. On the surface, it has a similar appearance to solid, adds value to a property, and can be refinished. The only difference is construction, resulting in wood floors that are more stable and better able to handle water.

Only the construction is different

At the top is a slab of species, whether oak, maple, hickory, etc. Underneath are three or more layers of wood, combined with resin and placed in a crosswise position. As a result, no acclimation is necessary before installation, and you can install these floors in some higher-than-normal moisture areas.

They come in a wide variety of styles

Engineered hardwood fits into any decor, from the most traditional to urban modern. With a wide variety of species, widths, and colors, you can get anything from natural wood to dark shades. Planks come in 3-¼ to seven-inch widths.

Engineered hardwood is durable

Generally, when something's made up of multiple layers, that, in itself, tends to make it dimensionally more stable, but there are two more indicators of this product's strength. One is the warranty, a manufacturer's promise about the longevity of a product. Many are so confident of this material's strength that it's not unusual to find 30-plus year guarantees. Further, most engineered floors are factory-finished. Factory-finished floors tend to be stronger because an ultra-tough commercial-grade substance, which can only be used under strict workshop controls, is used. Therefore, you can go longer without needing refinishing.

Engineered wood is still re-finishable

This is an important consideration, whether you're choosing engineered or solid wood because it determines how many times a floor can be sanded and refinished. Engineered has a density range of ⅜-inch to ½-inch. The more robust, the better, and, depending on that number, you can refinish these floors up to five times.

Installation is flexible

You can install engineered floors over most subfloors, including concrete, and it is also compatible with radiant flooring. This hardwood offers the option of the floating floor technique.

Fast and uncomplicated, the pieces click together, mat, and then hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue.
