Engineered Wood Flooring
has the authentic look and feel of solid wood, yet it’s as easy to install as a laminate floor. Both beautiful and practical, these floors are made up of one to five layers of wood that are glued together, then topped with a real wood wear layer.
All of our engineered wood floors are made using the highest-quality materials, yet they are more affordable than most other engineered products on the market. If you’d like to take a closer look at your favourite design(s) before committing to a purchase, please remember that you can order up to 3 free samples

Although engineered flooring is very resistant to the expansion and contraction that sometimes occurs as a result of temperature changes, it is most suitable for dry areas of the home that are free from moisture and humidity. With prior planning, engineered wood planks can be used in most wet and dry areas.

Engineered wood floors are cleverly made to provide all the visual and tactile benefits of wood flooring, but with the added advantage of being sturdier and more hard-wearing. Made up of multiple different layers of wood, each layer adds to the overall strength and durability of your engineered floor.
The top layer of an engineered floor is made from natural wood (e.g. oak, ash, walnut), providing the same organic warmth and texture as hardwood flooring
. However, the layers below that are made from robust plywood. The finished floor also features an additional wear layer, which provides extra protection for the boards and results in a very durable flooring solution for your home.
Engineered wood flooring requires an acclimatisation period of 72 hours. While thinner than solid wood flooring, engineered products are inherently stronger and more stable, and they can be installed over concrete in the same way as laminates can. Engineered floorboards can even be used in conjunction with an underfloor heating system (unlike hardwood planks).
Maintenance and repairs are easily carried out if and when required. In the unlikely event of damage or dents, an engineered wood floor can be sanded, refinished and restored, bringing a reinvigorated look to its surface.
