Reasonably Priced Engineered Hardwood Flooring in Brampton
Engineered hardwood flooring is made of several layers of different grades of the same wood or different species which are stacked and glued to each other under pressure and heat. This type of flooring is far less likely to be affected by sudden changes in humidity and can easily be installed below or above ground level.
Engineered hardwood flooring is available in a variety of wood species. Most of the planks can be stapled, nailed, glued or even left floating over a variety of subfloors. They can also be installed over certain types of previously installed floors such as vinyl flooring.

Frequently Asked Questions about Engineered Hardwood Flooring
- Is it possible to refinish engineered hardwood floors?
A product belonging to a better quality usually comes with a 1/8” thick finish layer. This means that the floor can be sanded and refinished once or twice, at the most. It’s best to hire a professional to sand and refinish as they have experience with such work. If you have heat vents installed, you can remove the cover and get a side view of the floor. This can allow you to see the thickness of the finish layer. Also, remember to contact the manufacturer and see if sanding and refinishing is recommended at all for your product or not.
- What’s the difference between solid wood and engineered hardwood flooring?
Both types have their own specific uses and the answer to this question greatly depends on your specific needs and your choice of lifestyle. Remember that solid hardwood should only be installed in a completely moisture-controlled environment. The planks or strips are generally nailed down where it may require a timber subfloor, however, narrower planks can be glued down. On the other hand, engineered hardwood consists of a multi-plied and cross stacked backing which can have a top layer of any wood species you desire. It can be installed in any area that solid hardwood flooring is not compatible with.
- Will the colour of the flooring change over time?
Most wooden floor materials change in colour over time, but the extent of the fading largely depends on the species of wood being used and its location. Certain species may lighten with continuous exposure to sunlight whereas others may darken.
