Engineered Hardwood Flooring | Engineered Wood Floors
Engineered flooring is a flooring format that benefits from enhanced dimensional stability and installation location versatility. With a "wear layer" of a premium wood specie, such as Brazilian Cherry, on top of multiple perpendicularly placed plies, the rate of expansion and contraction of the hardwood flooring is greatly reduced. This means less headache, because the possibility of your floor bowing, cupping, or gapping due to these expansions and contractions is greatly reduced.
