Engineered Flooring Explained

by admin

So why is engineered flooring becoming the preferred choice over solid wooden flooring?

There is a large number of different types of wood that engineered flooring comes in, these timbers come in a range of styles including, aged oak and bleached. Engineered wood floors are more flexible to the types of floors they can be laid on unlike solid wood flooring.

Another reason for choosing this type of flooring is low maintenance care required. There is no need for waxing, oiling, sanding or lacquering and the wooden planks do not need to be climatised to the room. Engineered flooring can be walked on and used as soon as it has been fitted.
For the DIY enthusiast, it is more easier to lay than solid wood so saves on fitting expenses.

Engineered flooring is made up of a top layer of real wood, known as the veneer. The flooring comes in various qualities, the more expensive the wood, the thicker the solid wood veneer. Below the solid wood veneer there are several layers of pressed, glued wood forming a plywood base.
