Frequently Asked Question

Engineered wood flooring with an overall thickness of 3/4 inch to 5/8 inch is ideal. To break it down, the wear layer should be 3/16 inch thick, and the core should be 9 or 11 plies thick.

Engineered plank flooring resists moisture better than solid hardwood, making it a superior alternative for kitchens, baths, and basements. However, both flooring alternatives provide a wide selection of stylistic possibilities for whole-house instals.

Engineered plank flooring is not as long-lasting as solid wood, but it may endure up to 40 years. When exposed to moisture, it does not bend or alter dimensions, and it is resistant to temperature fluctuations. Engineered wood that is click-lock or glue-down is easy to work with and can be put on a variety of subfloors.

When installing an engineered wood floor over underfloor heating, a maximum thickness of 15mm is usually advised. The reason for this is because boards with this thickness enable heat to travel into the room more efficiently than boards with a thicker thickness.
