Engineered wood flooring is 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 strength and durability of your engineered floor.
The top layer of engineered wood flooring is made from natural wood (e.g. oak), providing the same organic warmth and texture as a solid wood flooring product. However, the layers below that are made from robust plywood. Engineered wood flooring is also coated in an additional wear layer which provides extra protection for the boards.
Engineered wood flooring has an acclimatisation period of 72 hours, and unlike solid wood it can be used in conjunction with underfloor heating systems. 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 laminate. Maintenance and repairs are easily carried out if and when required. Engineered wood floors can be sanded, refinished and restored in the unlikely event of damage or dents - bringing a reinvigorated look to your flooring.Order your engineered wood flooring online now, or request up to 3 free samples here.
