Let Floor Coverings International be your one-stop shop for engineered hardwood flooring in the greater Ottawa area. Engineered hardwood is manufactured with a core of 3-5 layers of hardwood that is then covered on the surface with a hardwood veneer. This cross-grain, multi-layered structure allows engineered hardwood to be resistant to heat and moisture.
Our team of flooring experts will assist you from start to finish during the design, purchase, and installation of your new floors. We have a wide range of experience under our belt when it comes to hardwood flooring design and installation, so you can trust us with your home or office.
Advantages & Disadvantages
Our customers love engineered hardwood because it won’t warp or get weather damage, no matter where it is installed. Engineered hardwood won’t shrink, expand, or dry up if you install it in a damp basement or in an area with radiant heating.
On the other hand, engineered hardwood flooring is at a disadvantage when it comes to scratches and scuffs. Engineered hardwood can’t be re-sanded and refinished multiple times without wearing too thin or losing its quality, so if you think your hardwood floors will receive a lot of scratches then you might be better off with solid hardwood flooring, instead.
We carry all of the major brands, species, and types of hardwood flooring, including some more exotic options like Brazilian and African species. Give us a call today to explore our engineered hardwood products.
