Engineered Wide Plank Floors
Engineered Hardwood Floors are more resistant to humidity and moisture which makes them perfect for an area with swings in temperature and humidity (such as the Adirondacks) that might cause a solid hard wood floor to dry out, shrink, cup or buckle.
Engineered hardwood Floors are more resistant to expansion and contraction with moisture because the optimal 4.5mm wear layer is attached to either an 11 ply (3/4″ thickness) or a 9 Ply ( 5/8′ thickness) *CARB Certified plywood.
Some of the most beautiful wood floors in the world are the old Victorian wood floors you see in older homes from the turn of the century.
The key to our Floor is the 4.5 mm wear layer
Our 4.5 mm wear layer creates this classic look, and allows 4 sandings creating the optimal wear thickness while creating a structural sound and stable floor!
If the wear layer was any thicker it would overcome the plywood and create the possibility of cupping and bowing.
If the wear layer was any thinner the floor would have less life and would need to be replaced before multiple refinishes!
*CARB (California Air Resource Board) compliant plywood.
