Engineered wood, made to last
Engineered wood flooring is constructed of layers of real wood, including a hardwood top layer, glued firmly together under high pressure for greater stability. The hardwood veneer is available in different designs, finishes and thicknesses to suit all interiors.
The middle and bottom layers are generally made from plywood and provide strength and balance, making engineered boards suitable for most areas of the home, including kitchens.
The structure of engineered wood floors means they can be installed as a floating floor on top of any type of sub-floor. This makes the installation of engineered wood flooring straightforward and efficient. The planks can be installed using a click/lock or gluing system over a sub-floor.
Depending on the thickness of the engineered boards, nails can also be used. The top layer is pre-finished, so has already been sanded and sealed prior to installation. Once it is laid, it can be walked on and enjoyed immediately.
Engineered wood floors are ideal for areas where solid wood flooring is not suitable and can be combined with underfloor heating. A robust and durable alternative to solid wood, engineered boards have many of the same benefits as laminate flooring, being easy to maintain and clean, making it ideal for the busy family home.
