From the earliest times Wood floors have always been the flooring of choice for the discriminating homeowner. It was one of the first flooring used and even though stone and other flooring is all natural only wood is truly renewable. In addition, only wood gives you the warmth, luxury and beauty that gives your home that personal feeling you are looking for.

While you have many choices when it comes to wood floors, a prefinished, engineered Verde Bellissimo collection floor with Verde Floors’ ‘Loc n Roll’ installation method is one of the highest quality, quickest and easiest installed flooring you can find. Whether installed by a professional or you do it yourself, Verde Bellissimo also offers you the ability to install it by gluing it down or floating it, above, below or on-grade.*

Click here to see how easy it is to ‘Loc N Roll’.

In addition, all of our Verde Bellissimo collection floors feature a dry-sawn wear layer that is 3mm thick. Dry-sawing gives your floor a true sawn appearance (exactly like a solid) rather than the unnatural appearance of a rotary peeled product and less susceptible to checking than a sliced face. And the 3mm thickness is thicker than the industry average for a floor this thick and allows it to be resanded if required.*

Verde Bellissimo

also comes with a smooth finish in wide variety of colors, species and widths to match your lifestyle and décor.

* See Verde Floors installation instructions for further information

A wood floor is a personal statement and unlike artificial flooring products, every wood floor is truly unique. Real wood unlike other flooring material is truly natural. That means that each and every piece of wood floor is unique. No two pieces can be exactly alike and therefore, regardless of the species, color, thickness or width, your floor will be uniquely yours. In other words, every wood floor is truly a custom floor, distinctive to you and your home.


Engineered wood flooring is REAL wood!


Laminate is melamine-infused paper on top, wood chip composite on bottom. Not exactly what you would call real wood. Solid hardwood is real wood, from top to bottom.

Engineered wood, too, is real wood. It is a sandwich of 1/16" to 1/8" of finish wood on top and non-finish plywood underneath. So, what you're looking at is 100% genuine wood.

But did you know that it's actually better to have plywood underneath? That's right: the middle layer of plywood is laid cross-ways to the finish layer, providing additional strength to the flooring.


Engineered Wood Floor is Pre-Finished

The top finish layer is pre-finished, which means that it's already sanded and sealed. As soon as the floor has been laid, you can walk on it.

By contrast, unfinished solid hardwood must be sealed, and this requires waiting time before use. Note: solid hardwood is available pre-finished, as well.

Engineered Wood Flooring Can Be Sanded

The advantage of engineered wood flooring versus laminate is that engineered wood can be sanded after scratches and dings develop. Two catches, though:

Limited Sanding

- Engineered flooring cannot be sanded more than 1-3 times (depending on the thickness of the finish layer).

Professional Sanding Recommended

- Because of the low tolerance for failure with sanding engineered wood, I seriously recommend that you have a professional do the sanding. It is very easy to gouge your engineered wood floor, revealing the plywood underneath.

Value of Engineered Flooring

Engineered flooring is more expensive than laminate, yet provides better value in the long-run because it can be periodically sanded to revive the wood grain and erase scratches. Read more about the value of engineered flooring on ConsumerSearch.


What About Areas With Light Moisture?

Engineered wood flooring works well in kitchens, basements, and bathrooms where light moisture might be present. Still, it doesn't hold up to really wet areas such as basements that flood frequently. Nor does it hold up to kids' bathrooms which, as you may know, tend to flood frequently.

Truthfully, no wood flooring product is great for very wet areas (tile, concrete, vinyl, or any other non-organic product is best). But relative to other wood flooring products, engineered wood isn't bad.

A Range of Installation Methods

Unlike solid wood, which must be nailed to a wood sub-floor, engineered wood can be installed in a different number of ways. Depending on the type you buy, it can be either:

Nail-Down Floor

. This is for the 3/8" thick floor--its thinness requires nailing to enhance stability;

Glue-Down Floor

. The 1/2" thick floor can be nailed down; or

A Floating Floor. The 5/8" planks are thick enough to act as a floating floor.



Laminate wood flooring is designed to imitate hardwood flooring. it is typically constructed of a high density fiberboard substrate layer, a pattern layer that is a high resolution image of a hardwood surface and a top plastic wear layer of melamine.

with a engineered floor you are actually walking on a actual piece of wood, whereas with laminate you are walking on a picture of hardwood under a wear layer.


It’s true that engineered wood floors are often more expensive than laminates, but they can also add re-sale value to your home should you ever decide to sell it. Plus, real wood floors can last much longer with sanding-refinishing to renew the look. Laminate flooring cannot be refinished. If a section is damaged, it must be pulled out and a new section installed — or if the entire floor is in need of a new finish, you will have to install a completely new floor


Another area where the two differ is how they sound and feel underfoot. Laminate floors either have a hollow sound or have a thick pad underneath, which produces a dull sound and makes it feel spongy and floating. engineered wood floors provide a sturdier, firmer feel and solid resonance.


Engineered boards are also problem-solvers, allowing you to use them where solid strips often can't go, like in basements or directly over concrete slabs. Even better, budget-minded homeowners can lay the boards themselves, saving a bundle on pro installation and getting great-looking results in a weekend.





. What is engineered hardwood flooring?


. Engineered hardwood flooring is a product made up of a core of hardwood, plywood or HDF and a top layer of hardwood veneer that is glued on the top surface of the core and is available in almost any hardwood species. The product thus has the natural characteristics of the selected wood species as opposed to a photographic layer. The "engineered" product has been designed to provide greater stability, particularly where moisture or heat pose problems for solid hardwood floors.

Q.What is the difference between a laminate, solid hardwood and an engineered hardwood floor


Laminate- core of product is typically made of High Density Fiber (HDF). The top layer is a photographic layer that should appear identical to the product it replicates, be it wood, vinyl, tile, etc. The product is generally 3/8" thick and is a floating install with tongue and groove glue less locking system which allows you to install and uninstall the floor several times if desired. This product is typically the least expensive. Solid Hardwood- the product is the solid natural wood species throughout the entire piece of flooring, typically with a tongue and groove installation. Good sanding and refinishing capabilities. The product is typically more expensive and has some limitations as to where it can be installed due to moisture issues.


. What does greater stability mean?


The instability of solid hardwood is usually moisture or heat related. Under adverse conditions, solid hardwood floors can warp, cup, swell or split apart. Engineered hardwood flooring overcomes these problems by constructing a multiple-ply plank which counteracts twisting and remains flat and intact. This makes engineered hardwood flooring a better choice for installation over radiant heat sources, over concrete whether it’s below grade or above, and in rainy climates.

Q. Can I refinish an engineered floor?


. It depends upon the thickness of your hardwood layer but the fact is that 95 % of hardwood surfaces are never refinished. With the high quality finishes that are offered and the extensive process that refinishing a floor entails, damaged areas are often removed professionally. If sanding is desired, typically, the professional sanding procedure removes 1/32 of an inch. Thus if your floor has a 2mm layer you can sand the floor 1-2 times.



. Besides different species, what else accounts for the different appearances in hardwoods?


Hardwood veneers have the same surface appearances as solid hardwood flooring because they’re both natural hardwoods. Different appearances result from the different ways the hardwood are sawn. The different sawing methods are: i) Flat Sawn or Plain Sawn, ii) Rotary Cut, iii) Off-Set Rotary Cut, and iv) Sliced Cut.

Flat Sawn (also referred to as plain sawn) - can be flat grain (which has a cathedral or gothic effect) or vertical grain (which has a radial or edge grain effect).

Rotary Cut – method of cutting wood in which the hardwood layer is peeled off the log using large wood lathes. This peeling method shows dramatic, wilder graining.

Off-Set Rotary Cut – method of cutting wood which gives a sliced appearance and grain pattern with the added cross grain stability of sliced, without the sliced cost. Hardwoods are more dimensionally stable across the grain, and off-set rotary cutting takes advantage of this property. The yield is lower than a regular rotary cut creating a slight price increase vs. standard rotary.

Sliced Cut – method of cutting wood in which the hardwood layer is sawn like regular lumber. This shows method finer graining.
