Are engineered cherrywood flooring options the right ones for your home and flooring installation project?

When installing cherry hardwood floors, homeowners should make a decision between engineered or solid cherry wood flooring. This brief introduction will explain the benefits of engineered flooring and why Metairie Flooring has engineered cherry hardwood flooring.

What is engineered cherrywood flooring?

Solid wood flooring floorboards are made from one piece of hardwood. However, engineered floorboards have multiple layers of material. The engineered cherry wood flooring’s top layer, or “wear layer”, is made from solid cherry hardwood. This veneer is glued to several layers of backing material, such as plywood, pressboard, or fiberboard. Engineered cherry wood flooring is made with a multilayered structure. This allows for a stronger core and makes it more resilient to temperature and humidity changes. Floorboards won’t expand or contract nearly as much as solid hardwood floors.

Where can engineered cherry wood flooring be found?

Engineered cherry floors can be installed in areas that are subject to higher temperature, humidity, and moisture. Engineered floors work well in homes with higher relative humidity levels in the summer and lower levels of humidity during the winter.

Where is engineered cherrywood flooring not recommended?

Engineered cherrywood floors are not suitable for environments with low relative humidity or extreme dryness.

Is engineered cherry wood flooring possible to sand and refinish?

Yes. Engineered floors can be sanded and refinished in the same way as a solid hardwood floor.

What makes Carlisle engineered cherrywood flooring superior?

Cherrywood/Jabota flooring is the most durable engineered flooring available. Our engineered cherrywood flooring is:

Thicker boards – Metairie Flooring engineered flooring is 3/4″ thick, while commercial engineered flooring boards are typically 1/4″ to 1/2″.

Metairie Flooring engineered flooring has a stronger backing than plywood or pressboard. Instead of using plywood or pressboard, Carlisle uses Baltic Birch, which is a durable hardwood that is highly resistant to temperature and humidity changes.

Carlisle floors have the most stable construction. While most commercial engineered flooring uses 3 to 5 layers or more of backing material, Carlisle floors can use 9 to 11 layers depending on the thickness.

Carlisle engineered floors are more durable – A Carlisle engineered flooring has a top layer that’s thick enough to last as long solid hardwood floors. It also comes with a three-year warranty which guarantees that it can be refinished as many times as you need.

You can customize your engineered cherry wood flooring.

Carlisle engineered hardwood flooring can be as customizable as solid unfinished hardwood flooring. You have the option of:


Our engineered floors can be ordered in cherry, as well as Ash, Birch and Brown Maple, Hickory Red Oak, Walnut and White Maple.


Two grades of Carlisle engineered floors are available. The Heirloom Grade has the most sophisticated look with fewer knots. Our Signature Grade has more knots and natural variation to give wood a more natural feel.


Carlisle offers a wide range of engineered cherry wood flooring in widths from 10′ to 12′. While mixing widths can create visual variety in a room, a consistent width will give it a uniform appearance.


You can give your engineered cherry hardwood flooring from Carlisle a rustic, older look by using a variety of techniques. Brushed, Timeworn, and Footworn treatments can be used to recreate the natural look of wood after it has been weathered by foot traffic and time.


Carlisle engineered flooring can be stained almost any color. This allows you to add light or dark cherry wood flooring to your space.
