Engineered Hardwood

Through a unique combination of engineering, construction and design disciplines and expertise.

The Perfect Blend of Luxury and Cost Efficiency

With the introduction in the past ten to fifteen years of durable finishes that are easy to repair, hardwood floors can last for decades. Throughout the centuries, hardwood floors have been a durable, design friendly and long lasting flooring of choice for the consumers, especially with the added benefit of being able to be sanded and refinished to update and repair ageing hardwood.

Engineered Wood Floor is Pre-Finished

The top finish layer is pre-finished, which means that it’s already sanded and sealed. As soon as the floor has been laid, you can walk on it. By contrast, unfinished solid hardwood must be sealed, and this requires waiting time before use. Note: solid hardwood is available pre-finished, as well.

Engineered Wood Flooring Can Be Sanded

The advantage of engineered wood flooring versus laminate is that engineered wood can be sanded after scratches and dings develop. Two catches, though:

Limited Sanding– Engineered flooring cannot be sanded more than 1-3 times (depending on the thickness of the finish layer).

Professional Sanding Recommended– Because of the low tolerance for failure with sanding engineered wood, I seriously recommend that you have a professional do the sanding. It is very easy to gouge your engineered wood floor, revealing the plywood underneath.
