Engineered Hardwood Flooring Means Superior Stability

Engineered Hardwood Flooring is built up of layers of wood. It consists of three to ten layers -- called plies -- that are glued together. This multi-ply structure gives engineered wood superior stability, greater than solid wood, which reduces concerns associated with shrinking and expanding when temperature and humidity change.

Our engineered flooring can be installed below ground level making it a great choice for finished basements.

How To Shop for ENGINEERED Hardwood Flooring

Unlike SOLID hardwood flooring which is 100% hardwood, ENGINEERED is layered and can range from 3-ply to 9-ply and beyond. With engineered hardwood floors, the more layers the better.

To check for quality, check the thickness of the "wear" layer and the number of finish coats. Good engineered floors have 1-2 mm wear layer and 5 finish coats... these will come with a 10-15 year warranty.

A better ENGINEERED flooring style would be 5-ply and 2-3 mm wear layer -- these will typically have 15-25 year warranties.

The best ENGINEERED flooring options are 7-9 ply layers and 3+ mm wear layer -- these will warranty for 25 plus years.

Can ENGINEERED Hardwood Flooring Be Refinished?

Yes it can, but only once or twice depending on how thick your wear layer is. A 3 mm thick wear layer can handle 2 re-finishings. You can sand down the top later to erase scratches and dents.
