Engineered Wood Flooring - Browse All
Engineered wood flooring is a type of hardwood flooring, composed of multiple layers of timber stuck together, and finished with a layer of real wood lamella. Engineered wood flooring is a great alternative to solid wood flooring - it looks similar, but the construction of the plank allows greater stability. It withstands higher levels of moisture and fluctuations in temperature, making it an ideal flooring for underfloor heating.
Which engineered wood should I choose? Like solid wood flooring, there are many engineered wood styles, species and colours to choose from. Your decision ultimately comes down to personal preference. We stock engineered oak, walnut, larch and acacia flooring, which also come in a number of plank finishes - such as distressed or brushed and oiled engineered wood flooring. You'll also find parquet flooring styles.
Why Engineered Wood Flooring? Engineered wood flooring is even stronger than solid wood flooring, due to the way it is constructed. It is also quicker and easier to install in comparison to solid wood, using either a click system (best for self-installation) or tongue and groove system. Finally, engineered wood flooring looks almost identical to solid wood, so it gives the impression of a fully natural product.
How do I lay my engineered wood floor? Installing engineered real wood flooring is easier than solid wood. There are several methods of laying it including nailing, gluing and floating. Remember to let the floor acclimatise for three to five days before securing it.
Is engineered wood flooring waterproof? Engineered wood floors are a great alternative to solid wood flooring, but neither are the best solution for damp environments such as bathrooms. For these areas, luxury vinyl tiles or laminate would be a better choice.
