Why choose Mannington engineered hardwood flooring instead of solid wood?

Here are the facts:

  • Engineered hardwoods are made of several layers, or ‘plies’ that are glued together in a cross-grain construction. This type of construction is far stronger than a single piece of solid wood; and it’s also more structurally sound – it won’t buckle, gap, cup or twist.

  • Engineered hardwoods can be installed below grade and direct to concrete - solid wood floors can not.

  • The top face is crafted from the finest Northern veneers (which is just an industry term for ‘top layer’) that provide the most uniform color and the most resistance to seasonal expansion.

From an enivronmental responsibility standpoint:

  • These floors use half as many trees as solid wood floors

  • Faster growing, renewable wood used for inner plies

  • Mannington’s wood facility reuses its mill waste for energy

  • Mannington uses only water-based finishes that contain no VOCs

  • Mannington uses a formaldehyde free adhesive system that meets or beats the most stringent indoor air quality standards.
