Engineered flooring is a multi-layered product with species chosen as the top layer (veneer). Top veneers vary in thickness among manufacturers.
Installation methods vary depending on the structure of the material and the manufacturers’ recommended installation guidelines. They may be glued down, floated, or stapled.
This flooring can be conveniently installed directly on concrete and on wood sub-floors. Underlayment may be needed when installing on wood sub-floors if glued or stapled. When the floor is floated, foam underlayment is required.
Engineered flooring is more stable than solid flooring in any circumstance.
The manufacturers are always releasing attractive, updated engineered flooring in various widths and finishes in numerous colors and species. Whether you prefer smooth or hand-scraped, stop by Fred Callaghan Flooring to see the latest styles and trends.
