Florence Green Engineered Hardwood Flooring 41.5 Sq Ft per Carton - Handscraped planks
Florence Green Engineered Hardwood Flooring 41.5 Sq Ft per Carton has a vintage hardwood look in multiple width planks. Great for that rustic style flooring look in a family room or any room. Random length planks are 4-1/2, 6 and 7-1/2 inch wide and 1/2 inch thick.
Florence Green Manufactured Wood Flooring With Maple Finish
Part of the charm of a vintage hardwood floor is the randomness of the planks. Each plank in the farmhouse wood floor may have a different width and length, creating a look that’s challenging to duplicate with anything but natural hardwood. However, our Nocturnal maple finish Florence Green Manufactured Wood Flooring mimics a vintage hardwood floor by varying the sizes of the planks.
This rustic Tuscan style floor uses a 2 mm thick veneer layer of maple that gives it the true look and feel of a hardwood floor without the expense. The veneer attaches to a base layer of plywood, which saves money versus using a plank that features hardwood throughout the entire thickness.
By limiting the use of hardwood in this manufactured wood flooring to the veneer layer, it reduces the amount of hardwood required to lay out a floor in a home or commercial building. This is one of the best ways to create a floor that looks like maple hardwood while preserving this natural resource.
Delivering the Warmth of a Hardwood Floor
Versus laminate floors that use a printed top layer to simulate the wood grain, knots, mineral streaks, and colors of an actual maple wood floor, this engineered flooring product makes use of real maple. It even has a hand scraped texture in the veneer layer, which enhances the vintage look and feeling of realism.
Upon finishing the layout, the maple veneer in our manufactured wood flooring completely hides the plywood base layer, meaning visitors will see nothing but the rich, textured hardwood layer.
This design features beveled edges on the planks, filled checks, and the random wood grain patterns that do an impressive job of duplicating the nostalgic look of handcrafted tongue and groove hardwood floors from Northern Italy from decades ago.
This flooring features a semi-gloss finish and rich brown stain that enhances the beautiful wood grain patterns of the maple.
Random Manufactured Wood Flooring Layout
By offering widths between 4-1/2 and 7-1/2 inches and lengths between 11 and 72 inches, these engineered hardwood planks will generate a look of randomness in the floor that enhances its vintage style. The use of varying widths is especially difficult to duplicate in any kind of flooring other than actual hardwood, which makes this flooring an unusual option for customers.
The use of random lengths and widths of planks brings a bit of a challenge to the install process. However, the majority of homeowners should be able to do the work themselves without the need to hire professionals.
When laying out the floor, use planks of the same width in one row of the flooring. Then switch to planks with a different width in the adjacent row.
If needed, the installer may need to saw the planks to the correct length to fit against fixed objects and walls.
The planks use tongue and groove edges that allow them to slide together easily. Installers may need to add glue to the edges to secure the fit, depending on the plans for the installation.
In a floating floor design, the installer will not adhere the planks to the subfloor. Instead, the tight fit of the wall-to-wall layout will keep the planks in place without the need to nail or glue them down.
For a floating floor layout, the manufacturer recommends adding specific tongue and groove glue to the edges. This secures the seams of the flooring, which creates the necessary stability in the floating floor.
Installers can choose to nail the engineered planks to the subfloor with brad nails or staples for a secure layout.
These brad nails should be 18-gauge nails that measure between 1-1/2 inches and 1-3/4 inches. Place the nails a couple of inches from either of the short ends of the plank. Then add nails every four to five inches along the length of the plank to complete the process.
A glue-down installation is possible too. Be sure to use a urethane-based glue, which will provide the most secure adhesion to the subfloor without pulling loose in the future.

Maintenance and Care
To perform general maintenance on the floor and to clean it, start with sweeping or dust mopping the floor on an as-needed basis.
