Choosing engineered wood flooring for your home is a great choice.
The structure of the board makes it a very solid product. The top veneer of wood can be sanded up to 6 times in its life-time, making it a floor choice that will last for many, many years – and will probably outlive you! The choice of colours and finishes are the same as what you would acquire with a solid wood product. Engineered wood flooring also come in long lengths which looks stunning in any home. They come in wider widths which is another fantastic look.
One of our most beautiful engineered wood flooring boards is the ‘euro oak’ brushed and oiled, which also comes in a lacquered finish. It is 20mm thick which is just the same as a solid wood. The beauty of a brushed and oiled board is the natural beauty of the grain comes through amazingly due to the brushing process and the natural oil process just looks so natural and beautiful.
With a brushed and oiled board it is recommended that it be re-oiled every say couple of years. It is not a hard job and can be done by one person. Many customers just like the idea of the brushed and oiled finish as they feel they are nurturing their floor and retaining its inherent beauty.
For those customers who love the brushed and oiled look but just don’t want the maintenance factor, then the brushed and lacquered could just be the chap.
Yet again the surface of the engineered wood floor has been brushed bringing out the grain, but instead of oil, lacquer is used. This really makes it a maintenance free floor which for most busy family house-holds is a very important factor.
All these wonderful finishes are available with engineered wood flooring. Another factor with an engineered wood floor is that it recommended for under-floor heating. The construction makes it the ideal product. Just imagine the beauty of a real wood floor and warm on your tootsies. Lovely!
