Engineered wood flooring is a very popular choice with our customers.

Engineered wood flooring boards are usually made up of three layers of plywood with a real wood veneer. They come in various thicknesses, and are available in a click version and tongue and groove. The beauty of an engineered board is that for one, it will not contract and expand as much as a solid wood product. This makes it the ideal flooring for a conservatories where humidity and temperature changes can be higher than in the rest of your home. Another benefit is that engineered wood boards are also easier to lay and make for a quicker installation. Engineered boards can be installed on most sub floors and will literally float. Floating means that an underlay is placed on the sub-floor first then the engineered board is floated on top. If you have an existing T and G floor, then if the engineered board is T and G also, then this can be nailed directly to the floor. Engineered boards are extremely adaptable when it comes down to your sub floor. They are just so beautiful as well and come in a huge range of woods and finishes. Due to the nature of the product, engineered boards can come in wide planks and long lengths, which is a fabulous look. They will come in all the standard finishes i.e. Brushed & oiled, brushed & lacquered, lacquered, hand-scraped and so on. The price of an engineered board will vary and usually the thickness and what type of wood is used will mirror the price. Engineered boards are a great flooring option and due to the real wood veneer, will just look exactly like a solid wood product. With so many choices out there it can seem a daunting task choosing the correct and most suitable flooring product for your home. At First floors in Giffnock, we strive to make this decision as simple and enjoyable as possible, putting your mind at rest that your chosen product will be the best and most appropriate for your needs. As discussed above, an engineered board is a brilliant choice for your home and will add beauty and value to any property.If you need further information then just call us on 0141 638 0968, where we will be more than happy to answer any queries that you may have.

We recently had First Floors install laminate flooring in our lounge and hallway and are absolutely delighted with the final result! It has been finished to a high standard with great attention to detail.

Having had a rough idea of what we were looking for, David helped find the perfect flooring for both rooms.

We were booked in quickly and kept informed throughout the process.

We would definitely recommend and use again.

Honestly so chuffed with my new floor. Everyone has been so helpful especially after I ran into issues on my end and had to delay getting my skirting on - everyone I spoke to has been so flexible, the joiner who fit the floor was really pleasant and quick too. Highly recommend!
