There are two basic types of hardwood flooring construction: solid wood floors and engineered wood floors. Traditional solid wood flooring is comprised of wood planks that are cut from the tree trunk as a single, solid piece of wood. In cooler, less humid climes, solid hardwood flooring can be refinished and recoated many times over its lifetime, making it one of the most durable and long-lasting flooring types. However, this type of flooring is very sensitive to moisture. When solid hardwood flooring is used in New York residential, commercial, or boating applications, the hot, humid climate causes the wood to expand, resulting in unsightly buckling, cupping, and warping.
Fortunately, sophisticated manufacturing techniques have evolved, resulting in the creation of engineered hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwood flooring is the best choice for Wood Floor NYC flooring installation, as it can tolerate high humidity conditions without becoming damaged. Engineered hardwood flooring is available in a variety of wood types, ranging from familiar domestic woods, such as oak, ash, and birch, to more exotic woods including Brazilian walnut, teak, and tigerwood, for owners that want a distinctive, eye-catching look and decor.
Engineered wood floors are constructed of three to nine thin sheets of wood that are laminated together to form a single plank, with the sheets laid in opposite directions during the manufacturing process. The top layer is beautifully finished, high-quality wood, with the under layers consisting of a combination of hardwood, plywood, and recycled wood, mixed with stone dust for strength. This manner of construction creates a hardwood floor that is stable and unaffected by the changes in moisture and temperature that can ruin traditional solid wood floors.
