Is your home on a concrete slab? If so, you can still enjoy the luxury and feel of solid hardwoods with an engineered floor. Engineered floors consist of 3 to 12 layers of plywood that are cross layered forming a remarkably sturdy structure. The layers of compressed wood are glued together with a thin veneer of the chosen species on top. Having multiple layers is critical in that it prevents moisture condensation on your subfloor from damaging your floor. Installation is convenient, your new hardwoods are simply floated or glued directly to your concrete slab.
