Engineered Hardwood

Engineered hardwood flooring suits today’s fashion trend for wider width flooring. More dimensionally stable than solid hardwood, this flooring is constructed with wood layers. The top layer (the “wood veneer”) is 100% natural hardwood, available in a variety of species. BreezeWood Hardwood Floorings’ engineered flooring boasts an above average thickness wear layer of 5mm of solid Ontario hardwood veneer and is certified by the National Wood Flooring Association’s (NWFA) Engineered Wood Flooring Refinishable Program. This means that our engineered hardwood flooring can be refinished twice in its lifetime, making it a smart and sustainable investment for your home.

The bottom layer (“the pinecore”) is a blockboard core system, constructed of North American Pine. The engineered construction creates a floor that is less likely to expand and contract when exposed to shifts in moisture, humidity and temperature. This makes engineered hardwood floors a great option in rooms that are subject to moisture (like basements) or over concrete.

In comparison, solid hardwood flooring is made from 100% hardwood with each board being a single solid piece of wood. Solid hardwood flooring is a timeless classic valued for its beauty, authenticity and durability and is a great option when used in the correct application.

Prefinished Hardwood Flooring

There are many flooring options to choose from today. Why does choosing hardwood flooring make such great sense?  Hardwood flooring is prized for its natural beauty and durability.  A stylish home improvement you can enjoy today, prefinished hardwood flooring improves with age and is a good option for the environment as well as your family’s health and comfort.

Why Choose BreezeWood Prefinished Flooring?

BreezeWood Floors offers both solid hardwood flooring and engineered hardwood flooring. Solid hardwood is valued for its timeless beauty, while engineered hardwood provides improved stability for wider planks and is better suited for installations below grade (basements). Both of these affordable and high quality prefinished hardwood flooring options are available in a wide selection of grades, stains, widths and finishes.

I have small children and pets. Are hardwood floors right for me?

Yes they could be!  How hardwood floors will fair with energetic, young children and pets can be of concern to hardwood floor shoppers. Consider that some hardwood floors options are more suitable for homes with pets and young children. Whether prefinished solid wood flooring or engineered hardwood, choose a species with a high Janka hardness rating, a measure which ranks the relative hardness of each wood species. The higher the ranking, the harder the wood species. No hardwood floor is bullet proof though! Over time, any flooring subjected to heavy or sharp objects, etc.­­ will eventually scratch and indent the surface. Your flooring colour and finish factor into how much surface wear you notice when damage occurs. Surface wear may be less evident on woods with open or pronounced grains (like ash and oak) and on low sheen finishes (matte and ultra-matte). Surface wear, dust and dirt may be more accentuated on closed grain woods (hard maple), high sheen finishes (semi-gloss) and very dark hardwood finishes.
Yes, you can have hardwood floors when you have pets! Consider this further advice:

  • Keep your pet’s nails trim and blunt or use nail caps
  • Use area rugs and mats in areas of concern
  • Avoid allowing water to sit around pets bowls. Clean water off prefinished flooring immediately or use pet trays
