Engineered Wood Flooring is produced by laminating several hardwood layers together to form the wood planks. Most engineered floors can be glued down, stapled, or floated over a variety of sub-floors including wood, dry concrete slabs, and some types of existing flooring. Engineered hardwood floors have cross-ply construction which reduces the expansion and contraction of wood planks caused by variations in humidity and allows these floors to be installed on any level in your home. Engineered floors are available in plank and long-strip formats.

 

SOLID WOOD FLOORS

Solid wood floors are one solid piece of wood and are generally 3/4″ thick. Solid Hardware floors are produced from the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods including red and white oak, American cherry, hickory, maple and Brazilian cherry, and are available in several widths. Because solid hardwood floors are more susceptible to humidity and temperature changes than engineered wood floors they should only be installed above grade or over approved sub floors and should be nailed or stapled down. Solid wood floors can be generally sanded and refinished several times.
