Wilderness Edge Engineered Hardwood Flooring 36.3 Sq Ft per Carton - Hand honed birch planks
Wilderness Edge Engineered Hardwood Flooring 36.3 Sq Ft per Carton from the American heartland these hardwood birch engineered planks are indicative of the time and have the spirit of the old frontier.
Wilderness Edge Hardwood Engineered Flooring With Birch Finish
The beauty and ruggedness of the American West comes through clearly in the design of our Birch Finish Wilderness Edge Hardwood Engineered Flooring. These planks will remind customers of natural wood floors found in farmhouses during frontier days.
These are real wood floors, containing a 1.5 mm thick veneer layer of birch attached to a plywood layer. The birch completely covers the plywood. Visitors to the room will only see the birch hardwood and believe they are looking at a full-thickness hardwood floor.
By only using a thin veneer over the top of our engineered flooring, we are able to conserve the natural resource of birch hardwood. We also are able to save customers quite a bit of money, as these planks have a cost of less than $3.50 per square foot of coverage.
Vintage Wood Engineered Flooring Design
We create a more realistic look with the use of a real birch hardwood veneer layer versus a laminate style of flooring that uses a printed top layer to try to simulate the look of hardwood.
The veneer has multiple shades of stain colors in each plank, contributing to the randomness of the look of this flooring. Visitors expect to see random shades of color and wood grains in an actual hardwood flooring, and our planks deliver this type of design.
This model offers selections of dark browns, light browns with a yellow tint, and browns with a red tint. Our engineered flooring planks work nicely for an installation in almost any commercial location or retail location. It will fit the decor of almost any room in a home as well.
Each plank contains a hand scraped texture, a real wood grain pattern, and filled knots. Individual planks have beveled edges on all four sides, which mimics what customers would expect to find in a vintage hardwood floor.
Birch is an excellent choice for those customers who like the look of wood grain in floors. Birch has some of the most attractive natural wood grain patterns among different types of hardwoods.
Tips for Installing Wood Flooring Planks in a Home
Installers will be able to either glue or nail these assembled planks to the subfloor. A homeowner can do the work without the need to hire a professional, especially if the homeowner has any experience with home improvement projects.
Glue: When gluing the planks to the subfloor, the manufacturer recommends using a urethane-based adhesive. This will provide the most secure adhesion to the subfloor, and it should last a long time, even when installing the floor in a high traffic area.
Nail: For a nail down installation, installers can use 18-gauge 1/4-inch crown staples that are 1-1/2 inches long for the most secure installation on this 3/8-thick flooring. Apply staples a couple of inches from the short end of each plank. Then apply more staples every four to six inches along the length of the plank.
The manufacturer does not recommend using a floating floor design with engineered flooring that measures 3/8 inches or less in thickness.
The best option is to dry lay the planks in an entire row before nailing or gluing any of them to the subfloor. Make sure the entire row fits properly before connecting them together with the tongue and groove system and affixing them to the subfloor.
Start in one corner of the room and move across in a row. Upon reaching the far end of the room, the installer will have to cut the last plank to fit the remaining space. Use a power saw or hand saw to deliver a clean cut.
