Owens Plank Flooring
is perhaps at the very high end of the engineered flooring spectrum, available in both unfinished and prefinished hardwood flooring. All of their engineered flooring is approved for installation on any level of your home including over radiant heating
systems. The Owens Prefinished styles are available in many wood species, colors and sizes. The Owens Unfinished styles offers you the ability to have your flooring contractor stain and refinish your new flooring to obtain that personal color you desire. Both options make it easy to find a floor for every style home.
You will also find the overall lengths of the Owens floorboards to be much longer along with the boards having a
much thicker top wear layer than other brands of engineered flooring.
Owens engineered flooring has a 3/16 IN. thick sawn wear layer
fused to a multi-ply hardwood core for the most stability. This thicker sawn
wear layer which is sawn from the log the same way as solid wood
flooring allows the flooring to be sanded and refinished 4-6 times if
ever needed and last well over 100 years.
Owens flooring does not have to worry about standards for formaldehyde emissions
they use glues that are formaldehyde-free and the ply layers used in the engineered construction have ultra low emissions. All of the engineered options from Owens are CARB Phase II certified, to protect the air quality of your home.
