Q: What is the difference between an engineered floor and a solid hardwood product?
A: Engineered products, available in Planks, Strips or Longstrip, are manufactured of hardwood using a three-
or five-ply cross-directional laminated construction, with a top layer of premium hardwood. This construction
counteracts the natural tendency of wood to expand and contract with seasonal changes in temperature and
humidity, making engineered products inherently dimensionally stable. Solid products, available in Planks,
Strips or Parquet, are manufactured from a solid piece of wood.
