National Hardwood’s French Galerie hand-scraped engineered oak flooring line celebrates a centuries-old tradition of hardwood craftsmanship. Each plank is hand-scraped, and wire brushed creating its own unique design of cracks and knots, producing a look that is both classic and sophisticated. The material is cut plane sliced, following the configurations of solid wood flooring.
Engineered wood flooring can prove better than solid hardwood at dealing with moisture. Its plywood base is dimensionally stable, meaning that it warps and flexes less easily upon contact with moisture than solid wood.
The French Galerie engineered flooring line is a very attractive and versatile flooring option. This Oak product is made up of 2 layers of ply with cross grains, forming a solid and highly stable core board and is available in seventeen different floors, species, colors, finishes, styles, and comes in prefinished and unfinished. This flooring can usually be professionally buffed or polished to remove surface scratches and renew luster and can be refinished at least once.
French Galerie engineered flooring is a great option for below grade applications, but it can also be installed in virtually any room of a home or building. By design, the plies of Engineered flooring work together to offset the natural movement of real wood. Therefore, French Galerie engineered hardwood flooring remains flat and delivers enhanced stability during normal seasonal and environmental changes that occur in every home and can be more reliable in humid climates.
French Galerie engineered flooring looks just like solid hardwood flooring, and when considering the quality of excellent price point this flooring can’t be beat.
