What is Engineered Wood Flooring
Engineered Flooring offer added stability and a greater variety of design. They are normally constructed with a base of multiple layers, using the chosen species as a top wear layer often to refer to as veneer, with a central core of either softwood or high density fibreboard (HDF) with a balancing spruce or birch plywood.
The thickness of the top wear layer on a quality engineered hardwood floor starts at 3mm to 6mm depending on the product which can come in various thickness from 14mm thick with a selected 3mm top hardwood layer to 22mm with 6mm top layer, this top real wood surface is sufficiently thick to take up to 5 sanding’s dependant on normal domestic conditions and thickness.
Engineered Wood Floors offers you more options when compared to Solid Wood Flooring when installing Hardwood Flooring in more demanding environments, offering you a sound structure and long life of wear, delivering great value for money without compromise on quality.
The great advantage of Engineered Hardwood flooring is it can be installed in demanding environments like conservatories, sun rooms, and lower basements as well as being used with underfloor heating offering a stable floor covering.
With such tight regulations and laws in place governed by the FSC and supported by governments of so many countries across the world the use of exotic woods that are protected like Merbau, Kempas, and Jatoba when milled/manufactured in an engineered format can be produced without the dramatic impact on endangered species from managed farmed forest.
Engineered wood floors are generally installed as a floating floor which basically means the floor is glued /clicked together via the lip joints and laid on an underlay, engineered floors can also be stuck down if required using a wood floor adhesive as well as suitable for both wood and concrete subfloors.
