An attractive option for those seeking a beautiful and enduring flooring solution
Engineered flooring with specifications including a 3/4″ thickness, 6mm wear layer, and a variety of colors using reactive treatments offers several advantages for homeowners and designers:
- Durability and Stability:
- Provides enhanced durability, allowing for multiple refinishing options over its lifetime.
- The engineered construction minimizes the risk of warping, cupping, or twisting, ensuring stability and longevity even in fluctuating humidity and temperature conditions.
- Versatility in Design and Color:
- The availability of 19 colors achieved through reactive treatments and wire-brushed texturing allows you to choose a flooring option that complements your aesthetic preferences and interior design.
- Reactive treatments can create unique and natural-looking color variations, enhancing the beauty and character of the wood. Unlike traditional stains, which basically place a pigment on top of the wood, reactive technology works based on the amount of tannin contained at any specific point in the wood. In other words, the tree, the life it’s had, and the soil it was grown in is what dictates the final color.
- Viking Big Sky can often be more cost-effective than solid hardwood flooring while still providing a similar appearance and feel.
- The 6mm wear layer ensures that the floor can be refinished multiple times, extending its lifespan and offering long-term value for the investment.
- Environmental Considerations:
- Engineered wood flooring typically uses less solid wood compared to solid hardwood, making it a more sustainable option for environmentally-conscious consumers.
- All Viking Hardwood Flooring products are made with raw material originating from sustainably managed forests.
- Installation Flexibility:
- Viking Big Sky is constructed with a precision milled tongue-and-groove system, facilitating a straightforward installation process.
- The engineered construction allows for installation over various subfloor types, including concrete, making it suitable for a wider range of spaces.
- Maintenance and Refinishing:
- The 6mm wear layer offers ample material for refinishing, providing the opportunity to refresh or change the color of the flooring in the future without replacing the entire floor.
- Bona UV cured finish allows for simpler routine maintenance, including regular cleaning and maintenance coatings, to help maintain the appearance and extend the lifespan of the flooring.
