Tampa Engineered Flooring Company
The diversity of Engineered Flooring is one of its finest features. It is available in a wide range of widths, lengths, and depths, offering flexibility in placement for rooms of all sizes and shapes.
This type of wood flooring is available in most wood species, including exotic and domestic woods, providing many attractive options.
How Is Engineered Flooring Products Manufactured?Engineered wood flooring is crafted from a combination of 3 to 12 multiple ply layers, depending on the style that is being constructed. The inner layers are made from a soft plywood or hardwood and topped with a thicker layer of hardwood that is firmly secured with flooring glue to the top surface of the inner core layers. This top layer is sometimes referred to as the “wear” layer.
Benefits of Engineered FlooringUnlike solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring can be glued directly onto concrete slabs as well as permanently secured to a wooden subfloor. It is more highly resistant to moisture than solid wood flooring, making it an ideal choice for homes that are prone to dampness, particularly in the basement, kitchen, and bathroom.
Standard styles of engineered wood flooring generally last at least twenty years if not longer. Thicker styles can last as long as forty to eighty years due to their ability to be refinished. The longevity of engineered wood flooring is determined by the style, the amount of wear and tear it sustains, and the level of upkeep it gets over the years. Some styles can easily be sanded and refinished to provide a “like-new” appearance.
