Engineered Hardwood Flooring



When choosing an engineered hardwood floor it is important to understand   the wear layer and the ply of the product you are buying. Engineered wood floors are made of multiple layers of wood or multiple plys.


The more plys, the more stable the flooring.


The wear layer is the top section of the engineered floor. The thicker the wear layer then the more sandings you can get out of the flooring. The thinner wear layers you may get no sandings or a few. The number of times an engineered floor can be sanded depends on different factors such as wear and tear, scratches or dents and such.


Some common brands of engineered hard wood floors are: Mercier, Ashawa Bay, Bruce and Kahrs.
