    Engineered Hardwood Flooring Toronto

    When it comes to hard surface flooring, there are so many options to pick from. Engineered hardwood flooring is, however, one of the most promising options on the market today. Engineered hardwood flooring is similar to solid hardwood with the difference being in its construction. This wood is manufactured with a relatively thin layer of hardwood that is bonded over a premium quality plywood layer which gives the flooring great stability. A good-quality engineered wood floor lasts for up to 40 years and is less expensive and easier to install than solid wood flooring.

    At Hardwood Planet we have a wide selection of extra-long engineered hardwood flooring collections. As a team of passionate contractors, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality engineered hardwood flooring in Toronto. We always take extra care to guarantee that we deliver products that are safe, clean, and eco-friendly. Get in touch with us today to find out more about our engineered hardwood flooring.

    Why Install Engineered Hardwood Flooring?

    While solid hardwood stands out in the fact that it can last up to 100 years when cared for properly, engineered hardwood flooring in Toronto is an amazing alternative. It is engineered to look and perform the same way as solid hardwood flooring but with a few additional benefits.

    • Looks like solid wood flooring

    Going for engineered hardwood flooring will not compromise quality. It is very hard to distinguish between solid wood and engineered hardwood. This is thanks to the fact that engineered wood has a top layer of real hardwood.

    • It is cheaper

    One of the key reasons why most homeowners choose engineered hardwood is because it is cheaper than solid hardwood. With engineered hardwood, you can expect to spend almost half of what you would otherwise spend on solid hardwood. Engineered hardwood enables you to save money without sacrificing quality.

    • Better resistance

    Engineered wood flooring has been constructed to offer better stability as well as resistance to moisture and temperature variations. The top layer of hardwood runs over a plywood base which creates additional strength and stability of the flooring. The flooring can thus be used with underfloor heating in areas with significant temperature changes such as utility rooms and conservatories.

    • Easy to install

    When compared to hardwood floors, the installation of engineered hardwood flooring is both quick and clean. The flooring is set in place using durable glue products, which adheres to the surface of your home. Alternatively, thanks to the flooring being dimensionally stable, it can be nailed, screwed down, or floated over an underlay.

    Other notable benefits of engineered hardwood flooring include:

    • A scratch-resistant topcoat can be added
    • It is compatible with underfloor heating
    • Found with click fitting system which makes it easy and quick to install
    • The top layer can be sanded and re-finished when necessary
    • Available in many wood species, colors, styles, finishes and plank widths

    More often than not, people mistake engineered hardwood flooring for laminate flooring. While both are manufactured, the main difference is that engineered hardwood flooring in Toronto has a top layer of real wood whereas the top layer of laminated flooring is simply a picture of wood. Laminate flooring is thinner.

    How to Choose an Engineered Wood Floor

    While engineered wood flooring has been a vital innovation that has opened up possibilities for affordable real wood surfaces, choosing the right option to use is hard. There are so many considerations that have to be made in order to pick the solution that suits your needs best.

    Types of Wood

    Engineered hardwood floors come in a wide selection of real wood species. To find the wood species that is perfect for you, you have to think about the material durability, the tone you want for your floors as well as the existing home décor style. Here are the main wood species.

    • Oak

    This is a popular species for hardwood flooring. Oak has a medium ranking hardness and is slightly reddish in tone. Oak is an ideal choice if you expect your floors to experience average wear and tear.

    • Maple

    Maple is known for its attractive natural color as well as durability. It is one of the hardest wood species. It is an ideal choice for kitchens, mudrooms, and areas that get lots of foot traffic.

    • Hickory

    The best qualities of hickory are that it is hard and resistant to moisture. It is perfect for kitchens and areas with significant temperature fluctuations. It will also hold up well in areas with high foot traffic.

    • American Walnut

    This is softer than hickory but has a distinctively attractive flowing grain pattern. It has rich opulent color variations. It goes well with a wide range of home decors.

    Layer Thickness

    Engineered hardwood floors come in varying thicknesses. Some may have more than seven layers. Lower-quality engineered wood flooring can be as thin as 3/8 of an inch. Higher-quality flooring will have several layers and be about ¾ of an inch deep. While each of the layers serves a purpose, the top layer is the most important. The thicker the top layer (wear layer) is the better.

    Core Layer

    The durability of engineered hardwood flooring is determined by the core layer. This is what offers support for the top layer and keeps the whole structure from breaking. Your main options include:

    • Plywood: This provides great support and offers remarkable durability
    • HDF: When used with alternating layers of plywood, this is the most durable and stable core option you can find
    • Fiberglass: While not as common, fiberglass (also known as fiberboard) is less supportive and can easily compromise the durability of your flooring

    Types of Finishes

    The fourth most important consideration you need to make is the finishes. Finishes are used to seal the wood and increase the lifespan of the floors. There are three main finishes:

    • High gloss: This is the shiniest type of finish. It is perfect if you are designing to impress. High gloss is ideal for the family room, bedroom, and living room.
    • Matte: While not glossy, it is perfect for hiding scratches. It is perfect for households with kids or dogs.

    Semi-gloss: This has enough shine to look amazing but not too much so the floor will not need regular refinishing.
