Engineered Hardwood is a great alternative to solid hardwood and laminate flooring. Engineered wood floors were initially brought into the market to be used on the first floor of a home built on a concrete slab, or the basement. While basements are still optimal areas to use engineered hardwood, the technology has evolved a great deal over the last two decades and engineered hardwood flooring is now acceptable to use in just about any room!
Our team of flooring professionals have decades of combined experience and can help you determine the best hardwood flooring option for any room. Come by our showroom and with you, we will go through different engineered hardwood floor samples to give you an idea of what will work best in your home.
It doesn’t stop there–take the samples home to see exactly how the colours and textures will work in your space.
Not sure how much flooring you will need in your home? Not a problem! We will come out to your home and measure out exactly how much flooring you will need–at no cost and no obligation. This will give you a better idea of what type of investment you are looking at for your flooring.

Versatile. Engineered floors can be glued to a wood subfloor or concrete slab. This allows this type of flooring to be an optimal choice for basements. Modern technology allows for engineered hardwood to now be used in any room on any floor.
Easy To Maintain. Engineered hardwood floors can be easily cleaned with either a recommended wood floor cleaner or a vacuum cleaner.
Real Hardwood. Engineered Hardwood is still hardwood, which can be an important “must-have” on a homebuyer’s checklist. Having hardwood in your home can also add to your home’s value.
Long-lasting. When properly cared for, engineered floors can last an extremely long time in your home
Engineered or Solid Hardwood? When choosing a hardwood floor, the most important decision is whether to invest in an engineered hardwood option or a solid hardwood option. Engineered flooring’s construction allows it to be installed anywhere in the house, from the top floor to the basement.
Moisture Levels. Hardwoods can naturally retain and give off moisture. Though engineered hardwood is more resistant to expansion and contraction due to its cross-ply construction, it is still a wood product. It is best kept in rooms with 35-55% relative humidity.
Photosensitivity. Both engineered and solid hardwood can be susceptible to photosensitivity, or the wood changing colour due to UV light from the sun. To help avoid this, consider periodically moving around furniture and area rugs to avoid patchy discolouration.
Excellent work. Project Manager Denny worked with us to select the right product and installation for our home. Installer was a real craftsman overcoming some challenging transitions and uneven sub floors. Project completed on time and budget. Will recommend Diverse to others.
The complete customer experience was great, from the initial meeting at the store to final installation. Very professional sales and installation team. Will deal with the company again.
