Two-ply engineered flooring: affordable luxury, impeccable style

Engineered 2-plank flooring offers a solution that's both elegant and functional. In this article, you'll find several interesting facts about this type of flooring and its many qualities.

Specifically, 2-ply engineered flooring is a type of flooring manufactured with two distinct layers. The first layer, called the "wear layer", consists of a layer of real wood. The second layer, called the "core", is made of softwood sticks.

The advantages of 2-plies

  • Dimensional stability: Thanks to its multi-layer structure, engineered flooring is less likely to contract (gap) or expand (warp) due to changes in humidity and temperature.
  • Versatility: 2-ply engineered flooring can be installed on a variety of surfaces, including concrete, plywood and underfloor heating. What's more, this type of flooring can be installed in three distinct ways (stapled, glued or floating), unlike solid wood, which is only stapled.
  • Aesthetics: Offering a wide range of finishes and wood species, 2-plank engineered flooring provides a warm, authentic aesthetic, identical to that of solid wood. It adds a touch of sophistication to any space.
  • Maintenance: Regular cleaning with a damp broom or mop is all it takes to keep it looking new and attractive.
  • Eco-friendly: By using less precious wood for the top layer, multilayer flooring can be considered a more environmentally-friendly option than solid wood flooring. You should also know that with the equivalent of one solid wood plank, we can produce four engineered wood planks. And, because its base is made from a tree species that naturally renews itself more quickly, it's also environmentally friendly.
  • Durability: With a wear surface of 5.2 millimeters, 2-ply engineered wood flooring offers the same service life as solid wood flooring that can be sanded 3 to 5 times.
  • Simple installation: The product's stability reduces the risk of warping, simplifying alignment and fastening.
