Features And Benefits

 

  • Engineered wood flooring can be installed by do-it-yourselfers. It can be nailed down over a plywood subfloor, glued down over a plywood or concrete subfloor or floated over a plywood or concrete subfloor. When nailing down, the plywood subfloor should be ¾ of an inch thick and a roofing felt or similar material should be placed beneath. When gluing down, a 100 percent urethane-based adhesive with an integrated vapor barrier should be used. For floating installation, use an underlayment with a vapor barrier. Keep in mind the seams will probably need to be glued together with regular wood glue, unless it’s a click-lock flooring product.

  • Many options are available when homeowners choose engineered wood flooring. Engineered hardwood can be made of any type of wood to provide homeowners with an opportunity to create the perfect custom look. If you would like to use planks wider than six or eight inches, engineered wood can be a good choice. The thickest layer of engineered wood provides a stability that prevents it from buckling, shrinking or shifting.

  • Engineered wood flooring can generally be used in any level of the home. Engineered hardwood’s construction fortifies it with greater structural stability so that it can be used at any level of the home – at, above, or below ground level. Depending on the moisture level, it might be necessary to use a moisture barrier. Engineered hardwood should not, however, be installed in a bathroom.

BAMBOO

Bamboo flooring has gotten a lot of attention since it was first introduced a couple of decades ago. Although it’s typically referred to as a hardwood flooring, bamboo is actually a grass that’s highly processed to produce flooring and other home improvement products.

All bamboo flooring is engineered, meaning the strands of grass are sliced and shredded, then pressed back together with heat and glues to form the flooring boards.

  • Vertical bamboo has a uniform, striped look.

  • Horizontal bamboo shows the “knuckles” in the grain pattern that’s commonly associated with bamboo flooring.

  • Strand woven bamboo mixes the grass fibers together so that they’re interlocked — it’s the hardest and most expensive type of bamboo flooring.
