Engineered hardwood floors
have become an incredibly successful solution to the flooring needs of homes in recent years. They are called engineered wood floors because, unlike wood floors, they are constructed from three to five layers of plywood, softwood, or HDF board, topped with a layer of real hardwood. That means they have all the appearance and loveliness of hardwood flooring
, but also do not expand and contract in the way that hardwood floors do, which can be useful in some circumstances such as when they are laid over underfloor heating. Engineered wood flooring comes in a huge range of styles – it’s likely that whatever kind of wooden flooring you admire, there will be an engineered hardwood flooring that looks like it. Our customers appreciate engineered wood floors because they are extremely versatile and can be easy to lay. They come in a variety of plank widths, and DIY enthusiasts will enjoy the clickfit system, which makes them simple to put down. Engineered wood floors can be attached using an elastic adhesive, and they can also be floated down onto a wood flooring underlay. Another versatile aspect of engineered hardwood flooring is that you can buy it in lacquered or oiled finishes, or in a distressed or wire brushed style. And if you can’t choose, you can buy unfinished engineered hardwood flooring, put it down and then finish it off in the style that you think will look best. Whichever you choose, your engineered wood floor will look beautiful for years.
