ENGINEERED HARDWOOD FLOORS CAN HAVE THE SAME APPEARANCE AS A SOLID HARDWOOD FLOOR.
On an engineered hardwood flooring plank the top layer (wear layer) is usually solid hardwood but much thinner than a solid plank of hardwood flooring. The installation of engineered wood floors is much faster than a solid hardwood floor but it can not be refinished as often, if at all. Most engineered products are pre–finished, which saves time on site as well.
- Time. It takes half the time to arrive at a finished product in comparison to a solid unfinished installation.
- Thickness. Engineered wood floors can be as thin as 3/8” and can go up to ¾”. This allows for flush transitions to another flooring in the home when remodeling.
- Price. Engineered wood floors can be more affordable than a solid wood floor.
- Color and finish selections are limited by the manufacturer
- Colors are often discontinued due to trend changes, making engineered wood floor repairs and replacements difficult.
- A majority of the time, the floor cannot be refinished. Once worn down to bare wood, the engineered floor must be replaced.
- Edges are beveled on most pre-finished hardwood floors due to a very slight unevenness.Specific attention is required when installing engineered hardwood floors in a dry climate. The potential for failure of the floor is greater than with a solid wood floor.

Our engineered construction uses 7 plies of marine grade Baltic Birch, glued with marine grade adhesive, topped with a 1/10″ thick acrylic infused wood wear layer.
