About Engineered Hardwood Flooring

    Engineered hardwood flooring, developed to be more moisture stable so hardwood can be installed in a home built on a concrete slab foundation, has significantly advanced in technology within the past twenty years. Engineered hardwood flooring behaves quite differently than solid hardwood planks. They are also generally less expensive and have more options available to install with. Engineered hardwood flooring is more stable, and resistant to moisture compared to many other flooring options. This is because of how it is constructed, with several layers of wood with a finished top veneer. These layers prevent the flooring from expanding and contracting like most solid floors do. High-quality engineered hardwood flooring is a durable, sustainable, flooring that tends to cost less than most solid hardwood floors.

    The best engineered hardwood floors are constructed with multiple ply layers that are cross layered, glued, and pressed together. On top of the floors is a hardwood veneer wear layer. Because of this design, the flooring is more resistant towards changes in moisture levels and are convenient in regions of the country with higher or lower humidity levels. This results in the flooring being more structurally sound and resistant to seasonal changes.

    From an environmental responsibility standpoint, engineered hardwood flooring uses a lesser amount of trees when compared to the production of solid flooring. The trees are quick-growing, easily renewable wood species that make up the inner plies; the oldest growth trees are reserved for finish layer only. Engineered hardwood flooring lets you enjoy the natural beauty of wood without the guilt.

    Our company prides ourselves in having engineered hardwood flooring that is easy to install, eco-friendly, and visually appealing — all while being simply affordable.
