One of the floorings Burlington provides is engineered flooring . This type of flooring comprises three main layers – bottom layer, middle and top layer. Middle core is usually made from softwood, plywood or HDF layers and hardwood is the top layer. Thickness ranges between 0.7 mm to 6 mm, because the top layer of this flooring type is similar to solid wood floors.
Engineered floors Burlington are manufactured in two ways. Engineered wood floors can also be rotary cut, which the veneer hardwood wear layer is peeled off the log using big lathes. Dramatic wilder graining can be showed during this peeling method.
Many people think that solid flooring is much better than engineered, which is not always true. Remember that the renewable wear layer on a 3/4 inch solid wood floor is approximately 5/16 before you start exposing all the nails that were used to install it. The average lifespan of this flooring is near 100 years. You can refinish and sand 3/4 inch thick flooring about 6 to 7 times.
We have a large number of different species of wood. You can pick the ones that fits your home or office the best.
Of course engineered flooring is a little bit more expensive than laminate, yet it provides better value in the long-run because you can sand it from time to time to erase scratches and revive the wood grain. You better make sure you find out the quality of plies the brand uses, if you’re considering installing engineered hardwood flooring in your home. After all, paying for flooring with shoddy plies makes no sense. Engineered flooring Burlington will bring warmth and beauty to your home.
