Engineered wood flooring is a real alternative to solid wood, maintaining solid wood’s natural beauty with the surface wear layer.
Multi-Layer engineered flooring comprises of a top wear layer of solid wood, glued and pressed onto a cross soft ply inner core. The best engineered boards have a 14mm or 15mm thick plywood base.
Top quality engineered floors will look no different than solid wood and in fact the multi-layer structure makes a floor more even and stable than a solid wood floor. Engineered flooring resists warping and buckling, even with temperature and humidity variations the multi-layer boards will not expand and contract like solid wood and you do not need to acclimatise the boards unless fitted over to top of ‘underfloor heating’.
There is a choice of finishes with engineered flooring. Good quality wooden engineered flooring can be sanded 3 to 4 times over the lifetime of the floor, similar to that of a solid floor.
There are a variety of engineered floors, all creating a different effect and suitable for purpose.
