Engineered Wood Flooring
Engineered wood flooring has a timeless charm and can suit both contemporary & classical situations. Solid wood boards can be problematic, particularly in areas of fluctuating moisture and temperature. Engineered wood flooring circumvents these issues by having a reinforced backing comprised of several layers of plywood. This backing reinforces the wood’s structural integrity and maintains the shape of each board. Your new floor will look solid while benefiting from a greater stability.
Advantages of Engineered Wood Flooring
1. It looks like real wood because it is real wood.
While other floors imitate the look of wood with varying levels of success… Wood flooring scores full marks every time.
2. It doesn’t expand and contract to the same extent as solid wood.
This is arguably one of the most significant advantages of engineered wood flooring over solid wood. Thanks to its clever construction, engineered wood flooring doesn’t expand and contract to the same extent as solid wood. This means our wood floors can be fitted “floating” with no need to fully adhere the wood to the floor.
3. It’s extremely durable.
Engineered wood is made up of layers and layers of plywood that are bonded together before being topped off with a solid wood top layer. This makes the boards incredibly tough and will stand up to heavy footfall in both domestic and commercial environments.
4. It can be sanded.
The number of times that engineered wood flooring can be sanded depends on the thickness of the top layer. Engineered wood can still be sanded several times potentially and in most cases that’s plenty! Sanding your floor can completely rejuvenate it while removing those stubborn stains and scuffs. Once sanded you can re-finish the floor with your choice of oil or lacquer.
