WHAT'S ENGINEERED ALL ABOUT

  • Engineered hardwood floor is an alternative to solid hardwood floor. It's core is made up of multiple layers of wood stacked in a cross-grain configuration which minimizes expanding and shrinking. 

  • Engineered hardwood floor holds up to the challenges of climate fluctuation and sub-floor moisture, so it can be installed above, on, or below grade, providing an advantage over solid hardwood because of the ability to install in multiple areas of the home.

 

ENGINEERED v.s. SOLID

  • Here at Whole Floors, engineered hardwood floors will appear, topically, identical to our solid wood floors because we use the same quality material for both. This is not a common practice.
