About Engineered Flooring
Nor-Cal Floor Design engineered wood flooring has many advantages and benefits compared to solid wood flooring. Intelligent use of quality materials enhances the natural beauty of fine woods while improving performance. Our floors are an outstanding example of human ingenuity at its finest.
The layered construction techniques used in our wide plank flooring create an efficient, long-lasting and superior product using the highest quality craftsmanship and sustainable construction practices for a floor that’s as beautiful as it is smart.
Floors that Stay Flat
Our engineered wood flooring is far more stable than solid wood floors, with less warping and cupping. Simply put, our floors stay flat. Our engineered wood planks are available in three or four layer construction. The wear layer, or top surface, is 4-5mm thick, which means our engineered flooring is able to be refinished while many engineered products cannot. The middle layer is laid transversely, reducing swelling and shrinkage by roughly 80%, even in the most challenging of climates.
The unique construction techniques of our flooring allow us to have planks up to 16″ wide, with lengths up to 16′, even over in-floor radiant heat. Standard flooring guidelines do not recommend solid wood to be used at these dimensions over radiant heat.
Low Maintenance Flooring
Because engineered wood floors resist warping, costly and time-consuming sanding and refinishing is in many cases eliminated. With occasional recoating in high traffic areas, sanding is often not necessary at all. This process is dustless and inexpensive, eliminating the expense and disruption of the refinishing process.
Environmentally Sound Flooring
We are proud to offer one of the most environmentally sound flooring products. Not only are our European Wide Plank floors beautiful and enduring, they’re sustainably smart. Our flooring products are 100% natural, finished with a ZERO VOC plant based natural oil finish product. Additionally, our Mocca product line is finished using a cutting edge, thermo-treated process to achieve warm rich colors without use of any chemicals or dyes.
We invite you to see for yourself why engineered wood flooring from Nor-Cal Floor Design makes sense for your home, business, pocketbook and the environment.
