Engineered Flooring

Engineered hardwood flooring is a product made up of a core of plywood or high density fibreboard (HDF) and a top layer of a hardwood veneer that is glued to the top surface of the core. The product is normally pre-finished with several coats of a polyurethane type finish that provides varying degrees of wear protection and sheen level. Some products are sold unfinished and then finished on site after installation.

The top veneer can range in thickness between 0.5 mm – 5mm (and more) and can be made from a wide variety of wood species. The most common domestically grown types of wood veneer used include Birch, Hickory, Maple and Oak. The finished products are available in a wide variety of widths, lengths and colours.

Engineered floors are much more structurally stable than solid hardwood floors because the core of the product is made up of pressed wood layers that are stacked in alternating directions to create a dimensionally stable core. This allows for more flexible installation options and can be installed on grade, above grade and even below grade.

Types of installation methods include nail down, glued together, glued down and some products can also be clicked together. These different installation options are created by milling the planks to create either a tongue and groove (T & G) system or a click together locking system similar to what is used in laminate flooring.
