many floors compare to Plankfloor®. As an engineered hardwood floor,
it looks and feels exactly like solid wood. However, you won’t have
to deal with the inherent problems often associated with solid wood
flooring. Plankfloor is also easy to install and maintain.
How does Plankfloor® produce such reliable floors?
Plankfloor®s start with fine hardwood lumber. The lumber is sawn into
a 3/16" wear surface comparable to solid 3/4” wood flooring. Multiple
plys of hardwood veneer are then laminated to the surface. The result
is Plankfloor®, an incredibly beautiful and stable wood floor that you’ll
enjoy for a lifetime.
||Solid Wood 3/4” flooring
Plankfloor is manufactured in a variety of standard
widths and long average lengths up to 7-1/2 feet. It can be glued directly
to concrete on or below grade, or installed on most wood subfloors with
standard 3/4" nail and staple guns. If a random and uniquely patterned
wood floor is desired, we offer pre-packaged cartons with equal lineal
footage of 3, 4 and 5-inch widths.
Handling & Installation Instructions:
Plankfloor can be glued directly to concrete, nailed
or stapled to any wood subfloor, or floated with PlankLoc, Owen's patented
installation system. Hardwood floor installation instructions are available
for each type (Click
here for more detailed installation information). If you are unsure
which method to use, contact a flooring specialist @ 1-800-343-6394
or contact floorings.com via e-mail.

INSPECT ALL MATERIALS:
all materials carefully before installation. Warranties do not cover
materials with visible defects once they are installed. It is the responsibility
of the installer/owner to determine if the job site sub floor and job
site conditions are environmentally and structurally acceptable for
wood flooring installation. Owens Flooring Company and Floorings.com
declines any responsibility for wood floor failure resulting from or
connected with sub floor, subsurface, job site damage or deficiencies
after hardwood flooring has been installed.
Wood is hydroscopic. It will absorb and expel moisture
based on its environment. Plankfloor is 100% hardwood and is not immune
to these changes. With Plankfloor’s multi-ply construction, these changes
are greatly reduced. However, for the best results we recommend that
Plankfloor be acclimated in a controlled environment prior to installation.
