Engineered Hardwood Flooring is real hardwood—the word “engineered” just refers to the way these beautiful floors are made. Engineered hardwood flooring is everything people love about traditional hardwood, without the disadvantages – the added strength of its factory-installed finish making it around 300% harder than traditional hardwoods, and its multi-directional core make it more stable. The result is a floor that wears better in high traffic areas and can stand up to installation in places like kitchens. Engineered Hardwood also comes in a variety of wood species and finishes, offering our clients nearly limitless design options.

How It's Made

How It's Made

Engineered wood is constructed of several layers, or plies that are glued together in a cross-grain construction, making it more structurally sound and dimensionally stable than solid hardwood. The top layer is made of real wood—in a species of the customer’s choice. The core layer consists of thin, stacked high-density boards. This stacking design defends against the effects of humidity and temperature, allowing each board to naturally expand and contract so it is less likely to buckle, gap, cup. or warp.

At Floors Etc., we love all trees. But there’s nothing like the character, aged patina and unique strength of antique or reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood is simply the most environmentally conscious choice possible. And it creates floors that embody a true “WOW” factor. Old growth trees cut down over a hundred years ago offer superior stability, weathered grace and an intense grain not available in lumber manufactured today. Chronicled history—like ferrous staining, bolt holes, and timeworn distressing—adds beautiful character.

Replacing Your Existing Stairs


Replacing Your Existing Stairs

Floors Etc. can replace any carpeted (or other) stairs with hardwood stairs. This process includes:
    • Removal of stair carpeting, tack strips, and/ or staples, exposing the stair framing
    • New hardwood stair installation takes approximately 3-5 days.
    • Furnish and install custom stained and finished pieces to match your existing hardwood floors or to achieve your preferred look.

Treads
  • When considering treads, also consider if your stairs are open or enclosed.
    Open staircases require a tread with return.
  • Our hardwood stair treads are typically made from unfinished bullnose wood that is 1″ thick by 12″ wide, and precision cut to fit each tread length.

Stair Risers
You can choose to:
  • Paint over the risers to create a contrast with the steps.
    Floors Etc. will leave your risers primed for paint by others so you can have them painted the color of your choosing (e.g.: to match your woodwork).
  • Match the steps to the risers.
  • Use a dark wood for the steps and a light, contrasting wood for the riser.
  • Not all stairs have risers (e.g.: Open Riser Stairs or Floating Stairs).

Stair Nosings

Landing(s)
  • Created from hardwood flooring planks and stair nosing form platform for changing directions.
  • Can be at top, bottom and/or midpoint of staircase.
