A Floor Structure For Any Condition
Initially, early homes up and down the Eastern Seaboard featured wide plank floors measured well over 20″ made of solid wood. By then, sawyers had mastered the technique of cutting and drying wide planks. In doing so, they were able to keep these wide boards flat and stable even in very undesirable conditions. Today Carlisle proudly continues the tradition of quality craftsmanship, based on generations of wood knowledge, to create the most stable planks available. Today, every great tradition inevitably meets its technological counterpart. In the flooring industry, that means engineered planks.
Engineered wood flooring entering the market in the 1960’s to address particular installation issues, installation over concrete slabs, and below-grade slabs in basements. Typically, these environments emitted higher volumes of moisture from the slab into the living space, making it challenging to keep solid boards flat as they reacted to the humidity. Today, Carlisle’s engineered production capabilities have evolved to set the industry standard. We can now provide several flooring options available in an engineered structure, some that were once only available in solid wood flooring.
