Engineered Oak Flooring

Engineered oak is one of the most popular types of flooring available.  With its beautiful colour and its versatility, combined with the engineered board, it’s hardly surprising!

Engineered oak flooring is made up of a number of layers, which are put together to make a single board. The top layer is natural oak, which provides the look and feel of its solid wood counterpart, with fibre boards such as plywood are layered underneath it. This reinforces the board and make it more appropriate for use in heavy traffic areas.

Why engineered oak flooring?

If you want that ‘timeless classic’ look of a solid oak product, but you’re also aware that the area where you want to lay your flooring is high-traffic, then you’ll want to consider engineered oak flooring.

As a more durable board than its solid wood equivalent, an engineered oak plank gives you that durability, because of how it is constructed.  An engineered floor can cope with heavier footfall than a solid wood floor, and has a longer lifespan.

Should I go for engineered or solid oak flooring?

Thats a decision which rests purely on your shoulders, but we would say that you need to carefully consider where the floor is going before choosing a solid oak or engineered oak product. If you’re not sure, then call us or visit us in store, and one of our friendly, helpful team will be more than happy to advise you.

What are the alternatives?

The obvious alternative to an engineered oak floor is of course solid oak, however if you’re looking to save a bit of money, then you could also consider a laminate product with an oak finish. Laminates are far more realistic than they used to be twenty years ago!
