Our LIFE-Solid Engineered wood floors feature an 8-ply, 1/2” overall thick construction that provides unsurpassed stability and durability without sacrificing the beauty or quality of real wood flooring
We use 7-plys of Baltic Birch cross-layered vs. secondary softer woods to build the base. Baltic Birch is flatter and more stable than the other options and the cross-layering provides enhanced internal balance. As a result, seasonal movement is minimal because the cross-layering provides dimensional stability though the change of seasons.
Finally, we add a 3mm thick Sawn Face wood surface which produces both the exact same visual as a solid piece of wood floor and the necessary thickness to professionally sand and refinish like a solid wood floor if ever desired. The cross-layered 8-plys are bonded with a high strength, non-toxic and eco-friendly glue.
All of the surface treatments we produce, down to the staining and proprietary finishing process on our LIFE-Solid flooring is completed in our Macon, GA plant.
L – Lifetime Finish: Our lifetime finish warranty provides peace of mind in knowing you’ve selected a floor that is quality built and will stand up to years of use. We utilize a 7-layer proprietary finish process with Aluminum Oxide for increased wear resistance and a stain and scratch resistant Nano Technology top coat for lasting beauty.
I – Installation Options: The 1/2” thick-engineered construction allows you to install our floors on, above or below grade. The alternating 8-ply construction provides increased dimensional stability, less expansion and contraction which all equal worry free installations. Our products can be glued, nailed, stapled or floated.
F – Fashion Forward: Our flooring features leading edge visuals, texture and color with a commitment to quality and individuality. Combining these features with wide width planks and longer length boards gives you an aesthetically pleasing visual in traditional to rustic decors.
E – Environmentally Friendly: Our production process and species selections all focus on sustainability. We only use non-endangered woods and are producing 4 to 5 times more flooring out of the same lumber normally used to produce one piece of ¾” solid hardwood flooring. Furthermore, our flooring products comply with CARB Phase 2 and have been certified under FloorScore® and GREENGUARD Gold standards.
Complying with the U.S. Lacey Act, ensures our wood is legally harvested and does not come from endangered species
CARB Phase 2 tested ensures our wood flooring and the air we breathe is healthy and free from carcinogens that can harm us.
FloorScore® Certification and GREENGUARD Certification - our wood floors have been tested and certified flooring in compliance with indoor air quality emission requirements adopted in California.
