Prefinished Engineered Flooring

Real wood flooring designed for applications over concrete flooring. This is structured with a real wood solid top layer and applied over a plywood or HDF core. This allows the product to be glued down or installed as a floating floor (wood floor planks attached to each other not the subfloor). Because of the construction and engineering of this product it is much more stable in environments with fluctuating humidity.

Thickness of engineered flooring can range from 5/16″ to 5/8″ and widths can range between 2-1/4″ to 6″ wide.

Wear layer thickness can vary and should be taken into account when purchasing. Engineered flooring will have a shorter average length due to the way it is manufactured.

Usually engineered flooring is pre-finished with a four-sided bevel but there are some unfinished engineered products.

Engineered flooring is the total package – the look and feel of solid, at a reduced cost, installed almost anywhere.
