Engineered wood flooring products are, by far, the best choice as there is far less expansion and contraction due to changing moisture levels between heating and non heating seasons.
6′ multidirectional plywood cores substantially reduce normal movement of wood products. This eliminates gapping of floor boards.
All of the products we carry have a dry sawn surface, as rotary peeled or sliced wood faces will tend to split, check or blister top coats of finish.
Engineered floors are also versatile as they can be installed in basements or over in-floor heat and can be nailed, floated or glued. We feature real wood layers from 2-6 ml. Thicker wear layers can be refinished over time. We carry dozens of colours and styles.
