Cognac Bottoms Up Engineered Hardwood is made from wood harvested out of Indonesia. Hevea wood shares the same high density and strength as white oak. Therefore, it is an excellent environmentally sound substitute for oak and other slow-growing hardwood species. So, what is engineered hardwood? Engineered hardwood has multiple layers of plywood or MDF and positions it in different directions. However, the construction of engineered hardwood is different among manufacturers. As a result, each layer is what gives it durable, high-performance quality. Consequently, the layered construction prevents the hardwood from warping and bowing in humid areas. Therefore, the advantage over solid wood is that the construction allows for installation in most homes.
Engineered hardwood floors can be installed in several different ways. The most popular is float it, which means putting a pad underneath it. Or you can glue it down. Both have their advantages. Gluing down a floor makes it sound denser with little to no noise like high heels. But it is harder on the feet and harder to remove if you ever want to change it. Floating requires a pad under it. It has more of an echoing sound but the better padding the better the sound absorption. Both are great options.
