Close Construction
Solid Hardwood Flooring
Solid flooring is milled from a single slab of wood, including all character marks and defects grown into the tree. Solid wood is dependent on the natural grain structure to remain flat and straight. It is typically 3/4" thick and must be nailed to a wood sub-floor for proper installation.
Solid Composite Hardwood Flooring
Solid composite is a blending of both solid and engineered technologies to create a more stable product in wider widths. Utilizing strips of solid 3/4" wood 1-2 inches in width, these strips are glued together into a single wide plank. The separation of grain direction into these narrow strips reduces the strength of any one strip, allowing the entire plank to be resistant to cupping, crowning or bowing. This product can be made from the leftover material when standard width boards are cut to size. Most of this left over material is usually ground up into sawdust. This post-industrial recycling of this material is a better use of the natural resources.
Veneer Core Engineered Hardwood Flooring
Engineered hardwood flooring is created by gluing 3 to 9 thin layers or plys of wood together using a premium appearance hardwood for the top layer. Each layer is stacked in a cross-grain configuration and bonded together under heat and pressure. As a result, engineered wood flooring is less likely be affected by changes in humidity and can be installed at all levels of the home.
Epic Engineered Hardwood Flooring
Epic engineered hardwood flooring is created by combining Shaw's EnviroCore high-density fiberboard core with a premium hardwood veneer top layer and a balancing back layer of hardwood. Epic's EnviroCore makes it harder, denser, and greener than comparable solid hardwood flooring and engineered hardwood flooring with softer plywood cores.
