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.
