2 Grandview™ offers both solid and engineered hardwood flooring for a variety of applications.
Solid Wood Floors
Our SOLID WOOD FLOORS are a nominal 3/4" thick. This traditionally-manufactured type of flooring can be nailed or stapled down in traditional manner. NEVER use a solid wood floor below grade or in any area at risk for moisture. If solid woods are subjected to moisture, they will expand a surprising amount laterally across the face of the grain, and with certainty will result in problems that no manufacturer covers by warranty. ALL buckled wood floors are the result of some type of moisture problem that occurred after the installation.
Engineered Wood Floors
Our ENGINEERED WOOD FLOORS come in nominal 1/2" thicknesses, depending upon the collection and the specific product you select. Install them with nails, staples or adhesive. While the "engineered" cross-ply construction using layers of woods and adhesives that alternate the direction of the grain are much more stable and moisture resistant than solid wood floors, they are not immune to damage caused by excess moisture. In installations below ground level or anywhere there is risk of minor moisture intrusion, it is much safer to utilize an engineered wood floor. Wherever you use them, engineered wood floors are your best bet for a long-lasting trouble free application. Since most of our 2 Grandview™ engineered floors utilize a real sawn wear layer, their appearance is virtually identical to that of solid wood floor. Environmentally friendly engineered floors use a smaller amount of our precious hardwoods by allowing other woods to be used below the surface.
