Peppercorn Leesburg Hickory Mixed Width Hardwood by Shaw features a popular heavy scraping. This floor creates a time-worn look that is highly sought after in many homes. The pillowed edges and ends give each plank a more pronounced sculpted effect. This enhances the versatile vintage look that is given to the floor. The color palette is rich and offers a wide range of options suitable for traditional or modern settings.
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.
The veneer is the top layer. Constructed with different species of wood, the veneer or top layer is what gives it that unique look of natural wood. The Leesburg Collection also has a ScufResist Platinum finish. This finish resists household scuffing on hardwood flooring like no other. Shaw’s patented finish keeps your floors looking younger longer. Therefore, you can feel free to really live on it.
Engineered hardwood floors can be installed in several different ways. The most popular is either 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 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.
