Q:We had Jolyka engineered flooring installed several years ago. The sun has faded part of the floor in one room, but it still looks good. However, the line where it has faded and has not does not look good. What can I do to treat or blend the faded portion to fit better with the non-faded?
A:UV light exposure naturally changes the appearance of wood. Unfortunately it is the nature of wood floors. There is no method to reverse this.
Q:I've been told engineered wood has greater width consistency than 3/4"hardwood and as a result fewer gaps between planks. I don't understand why this would be true and seek an expert opinion. Thanks, Tom
A:Engineered hardwood is constructed with layers of hardwood veneer, glued and heat pressed together to create a product that can range in thickness from 5/16” up to 9/16", having 3 to 8 plys. The top veneer can range in thickness up to 1/4", depending on the manufacturer. In order to create an engineered hardwood, these plys or layers are stacked on top of each other with each layer or grain of the wood facing perpendicular to each other. Once the desired thickness is achieved, the boards are then cut into the correct board width. From there, the boards are then manufactured to have a tongue or groove on the edges. The final step is to add stain and finish. By design, engineered hardwood becomes less susceptible to the effects of moisture and temperature fluctuations. Therefore, engineered hardwood is referred to as being dimensionally stable. Solid hardwood is not as efficient in dimensional stability because the grain throughout the board runs in only one direction. The positive stability of engineered hardwood allows it to be glued directly to concrete above or below grade and is also a better choice for radiant heat applications compared to solid wood. Moisture barriers over concrete is always recommended.
Q:Are all Bellawood engineered suitable for radiant heat?
A:Engineered flooring can be successfully applied over in-floor radiant heat. Know the species you intend to use and how it may interact with radiant heat. Not all species are recommended for this installation; choose species highest in stability ratings for this application. Brazilian Cherry flooring is not recommended for this application.

Q:What is the length of each plank?
