Engineered Oak Flooring

Engineered wood flooring is considered to be one of the most versatile alternatives to solid wood due to its varying styles and grains. The main difference between engineered wood and solid wood is that it is a composite material, made up of a core board topped by a hardwood veneer. These veneers can be made from most species of wood and offer a level of stability which solid wood cannot particularly in rooms where moisture is prominent.

Oak flooring is considered to be one of our most popular choices due to its attractive grain style. It can be made in a variety of cuts and looks timeless in either a modern or period property. Oak is a very popular hardwood with a reputation for durability and exquisite colouration.

What is engineered oak flooring?

Unlike solid oak flooring, where boards are cut to size from solid timber, engineered oak is a composite material. This means it's made up of a core board, before being topped with a hardwood veneer - in this variation, oak.  

Advantages of choosing engineered oak flooring

There are several significant advantages to opting for an engineered oak floor. Firstly, maintaining engineered wood is simple! A weekly clean using a mop or dust cloth will help to preserve the material's colour and quality - though bear in mind that spills should be cleaned immediately, and it’s best to avoid walking on the flooring in shoes with high heels as this can damage the veneer. 

Additionally, engineered wood is incredibly easy to fit as the planks can either be nailed down or glued. Another option is to use the 'floating' method and attach the boards to each other using the tongue and groove system, without fixing it to the subfloor. This is the easiest method, and it means that the planks can be easily removed.  

Where to use engineered oak flooring

Engineered oak flooring is popular for use in kitchens, bedrooms and dining rooms.

Engineered wood flooring is particularly beneficial for a room in which under floor heating is installed. The layered timber helps to ensure maximum insulation in comparison to single layered solid flooring. Engineered wood can also adjust and move position in order to acclimatise with shifts in temperature throughout the day.
