Solid and Engineered
Develop at a later date to solve some limitations of traditional solid wood flooring; engineered wood is made of two or more layers of wood to FERMA single plank. The top layer is the wood that is visible and provides its appearance, and it adheres to the core made of several layers of wood which provides stability. When solid wood is not suitable for use, engineered wood can provide an authentic wood flooring appearance with the needed stability.
Solid wood floors are the traditional type of wood floors. They have a variety of dimension and are milled from a single piece of timber. Although solid wood flooring should not be used in certain environments, and has certain limitations; however when conditions permit, it is generally the best choice of wood flooring for any home.
Making the Choice
Choosing Between Solid and Engineered Wood Flooring
Exotic wood flooring is growing rapidly in popularity because of the beauty of these wood species. FERMA specially selects exotic hardwood species that represent regions from the four corners of the earth to bring a world of wood within your reach. In fashionable home exotic hardwood flooring makes a statement of style and taste and can be matched to complement virtually any d?cor from contemporary to traditional to the ultra-luxurious. Exotic hardwood flooring is inherently not as uniform in appearance as domestic hardwoods; rather it reflects the variations found in nature in stunning detail whether in the palest or deepest shades of color. Since there are significant variations in hardness it is important to match exotic hardwoods to a family’s lifestyle and refer to the Janka hardness ratings and knowledgeable retailers for guidance.
