You can be forgiven for not knowing exactly what engineered wood flooring actually is. Simply put, engineered wood flooring is a plank of wood that is made of two or more layers of pressed timber.
The layers are fitted to run in different directions to make a more stable base than a solid wood floor. After installation, only the uppermost layer can be seen.
You might be surprised to learn it, but engineered wood flooring is made of 100% real wood. As different floors go, this means that it has greater durability than basic wood floors, but also has the classic natural beauty that synthetic floors simply don’t have.
So, you can imagine why it is a popular choice worldwide! A quick summary of the benefits of engineered wood flooring are:
Fitting a new floor is an infamously difficult DIY job, so you may be happy to hear that engineered wood flooring is fairly simple to install. Compared to solid wood, which typically requires an experienced tradesman for fitting, engineered wood requires a lot less preparation for two reasons:
1. Planks are more flexible
2. No sub-flooring is needed
Another bonus of engineered wood is that it has been pre-sanded and sealed, so once it has been laid, you can walk on it almost instantly. That means no time lost waiting for sanding and varnishing!
Expect more from your floors! The beauty of engineered wood is that it takes the classic elegance of traditional wood and marries it with modern engineering efficiency. You can take your pick from a variety of finishes, and your flooring is also available with optional bevelled edging, which looks particularly good.
You might be thinking that engineered wood flooring looks quite expensive on first impression. But as in so many areas of life, you pay for quality. So, it might be a worthwhile investment to spend a little more right now and save cash in the longer term.
