Slater Floors Explains Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Kitchen 6What Is Engineered Hardwood Flooring? And Why Should You Care?

Engineered hardwood flooring is real wood flooring where the floors are produced by laminating several hardwood plies together to form the planks. Being more stable than solid wood while beings less susceptible to shrinking and expanding with changes in temperatures and humidity, Engineered Hardwood is very durable.

Get The Look You Desire

The look can be distressed wood, hand scraped wood, specialty wood or traditional wood and in several types of wood, Birch, Cherry, Exotic, Hickory, Maple, Oak, Pecan or Walnut. The gloss can be high, medium or low and the size – strip, plank, wide plant or mixed width with several different size thickness.

Why Engineered Flooring Is A Good Choice

The instability of solid hardwood is usually moisture or heat related. Under adverse conditions, solid hardwood floors can warp, cup, swell or split apart. Engineered hardwood flooring overcomes these problems by constructing a multiple-ply plank which counteracts twisting and remains flat and intact. This makes engineered hardwood flooring a better choice for installation over radiant heat sources, over concrete whether it’s below grade or above.Bath 4

Your Natural Hardwood Look

The product thus has the natural characteristics of the selected wood species as opposed to a photographic layer. The “engineered” product has been designed to provide greater stability, particularly where moisture or heat pose problems for solid hardwood floors.
