Chevron Engineered Wood Flooring

The elegance of Chevron engineered wood flooring

When you want the elegance of parquet flooring in a room where solid hardwood is not an option, Chevron engineered wood flooring may be the answer. Combining the visual appeal of the Chevron floor pattern with the stability of engineered wood, Chevron engineered wood flooring adds visual appeal and sophistication to any room while providing a flooring surface that’s more resistant to moisture, humidity and temperature changes.

Carlisle Wide Plank Floors offers a wide range of options for patterned engineered floors. Our expert design consultants can help you select the exact Chevron pattern as well as the type of engineered hardwood planks that will transform any room.

Can Chevron engineered flooring be stained?

Yes. We offer a virtually unlimited range of stains for Chevron or parquet colors.

What other patterns are available from Carlisle?

In addition to floors with a Chevron pattern, we offer Herringbone and Versailles engineered flooring. Our consultants can also help you to create a custom pattern for a truly unique installation.

Can Chevron engineered wood flooring be textured?

Yes. Textured engineered wood flooring gives a new floor the character and appearance of a surface that has been lived on for generations and gently worn by time and foot traffic.

Can Chevron engineered wood flooring be prefinished?

Yes. Prefinished and pre-cut Chevron wood flooring is cut, sanded, stained and sealed at our facilities under ideal conditions. Once the floor is complete, it’s shipped to your home where it’s ready for installation without the mess and inconvenience of finishing a floor on site.

How is Carlisle engineered flooring different?

Carlisle engineered floors offer the highest quality in the industry. Our engineered floorboards are thicker than most commercial flooring, giving the floors the feeling of solid hardwood. We use Baltic Birch Plywood as a backing material rather than fiberboard, or slats of low-quality wood, making our engineered floors even more resistant to temperature and humidity changes. Our engineered floorboards are made with 9 to 11 plies of backing material rather than the standard 3 to 5 plies of commercial flooring, providing greater stability. And the top layer or veneer of hardwood is thick enough to last as long as our solid wood floors.

What are the benefits of engineered wood?

Engineered floors are ideal for spaces like basements or other rooms with large temperature variations or greater levels of moisture and humidity. Engineered floorboards are designed to form a stronger core than solid hardwood, enabling homeowners to install wood flooring in rooms where solid hardwood would not be possible.

What are the advantages of a Chevron pattern floor?

A Chevron floor immediately adds elegance and a feeling of luxury to any room. The pleasing geometry of the Chevron pattern has great visual appeal and can help a smaller room to seem larger.

What is Chevron engineered wood flooring?

Engineered floors are made with planks that feature a veneer of hardwood that is glued to multiple layers of backing material. The result is a floorboard that won’t crack or warp when exposed to moisture, humidity or extreme changes in temperature. Engineered floors are a great choice for basements and other below grade installations, as well as flooring on concrete slab or over radiant heat.

A Chevron wood floor is one where the floorboards are laid out in a Chevron pattern. The ends of each board are cut at an angle so that when two boards meet, they form a perfect V shape. When the Chevron pattern flows across an entire floor, it produces a long string of arrows and a zigzag appearance. Carlisle craftsmen are experts at combining wood with light and dark tones to create intricate, one-of-a-kind designs.
