Beauty And Stability
 Engineered hardwood floors were first introduced in the 60's and have continually grown in popularity due to their structural superiority to solid hardwood, along with the versatility they offer for installation methods. Engineered floors can be glued together, glued down, nailed down and even clicked together. They can also be installed above, below or on grade.   


plank composition
Engineered wood flooring is composed of two or more layers of wood in the form of a plank. The top layer (veneer) is the wood that is visible when the flooring is installed and is adhered to the core. The increased stability of engineered wood is achieved by running each layer of the core at a 90° angle to the layer above. 
Wood ply construction uses multiple thin plies of wood adhered together. Stability is attained by using thin layers of wood that have a limited reaction to climatic change. The wood is further stabilized due to equal pressure being exerted lengthwise and width-wise by running the plies perpendicular to each other.


Most engineered floors have a plywood core with 6-12 layers of plywood and a real wood veneer mounted on top which can range in thickness from 1-5 mm. There are three main types of veneers which consist of rotary peel, sliced peel or sawn face veneer. 

Solid wood is more frequently site-finished, is always in a plank format and is usually thicker than engineered wood. Engineered wood is more frequently pre-finished, has bevelled edges, is very rarely site-finished.
