Engineered floors are versatile, allowing them to be installed in any part of the home whether it be the basement or directly on a slab. These floors can be stapled, glued, nailed, or even floated over existing subfloors.
Our engineered tongue and groove flooring comes from 100% reclaimed barnwood and racehorse fence planks. Each engineered plank is a total of 3/4″ thick including a 1/4″ wear layer (real reclaimed wood “top layer” with plywood underneath).
Engineered floors are composed of multiple sheets (called “plies”) of wood pieced together to create a single plank. The 5mm top layer, knows as the wear layer, is real hardwood. The bottom section is comprised of the “plies.”
The layers which make up engineered floors are arranged in opposing directions. This is often known as “cross-ply” construction. This method effectively guards the flooring against moisture-related problems. The planks’ arrangement causes the expansions and contractions to counter one another, limiting or reducing the amount of cupping and crowning a floor can exhibit when exposed to differing levels of humidity.
