Wide Plank Engineered Hardwood Flooring

How Wide Is Normal?

USA Made

Wide plank floors have been a big seller the past seven or eight years, but the question many face is...how wide do I want to go?

Surprisingly, even though we offer planks up to 8 ¼" wide, many opt for a more conservative five or six inch width. Reasons can be attributed to finding the 'middle of the road' or that's what many Uptown customers are saying.

How Are Wide Plank Engineered Hardwoods Installed?

Due to the stability of our eleven ply engineered planks there is no requirement to use what some call the 'glue assist' method. However for those inclined there are no drawbacks using this method. Typical scenarios could include full spread adhesive and nailing with uncontrollable basement or crawlspace moisture.

Glue assist is used predominantly with solid wide plank hardwoods today, or planks greater than four or five inch wide

The bottom line with any project is insuring the relative humidity within the structure be in harmony with one another. Excessive dryness or high levels of moisture can affect the performance of any engineered floor.
