Engineered Wood Flooring

Engineered wood flooring is made of multiple layers of timber stuck together, and then finished with a layer of hardwood lamella.  It's a popular alternative to solid wood flooring as the construction of the plank means it is more stable, which allows it to withstand fluctuations in temperature. Engineered flooring also has a similar look to solid wood flooring, with the vast majority of people unable to tell the difference between the two just by looking at it.

Why choose Engineered Wood Flooring?

There are several advantages to engineered wood flooring, the main one being that it's a more durable product, due to the makeup of the plank.  Engineered wood flooring is made up of two or three layers.

Firstly, there’s the hardwood veneer (lamella), which is the top layer of the floor. This consists of a thin layer of timber, usually around 2mm - 4mm thick, and available in a variety of styles, colours and patterns.

Secondly, there’s the core board. This is made up of either one or two layers of plywood, or a combination of fibres, which are bonded together under intense pressure to create a dense insulating material. The layers of timber run in different directions which reduce the opportunity for buckling and twisting.

Another couple of advantages of engineered wood flooring is that firstly, it is incredibly easy to install, and secondly it lasts for years.  Depending on the area it’s laid, engineered flooring can last for more than 30 years!

Which species of wood is best?

This is a question we often get asked, but essentially, there’s no right or wrong answer. With a range of colours and styles available, which wood you choose really depends on personal preference!

What are the alternatives?

Of course, the standout alternative is solid wood flooring, but neither engineered or solid wood floors are suitable for environments which may be exposed to moisture, such as utility rooms and bathrooms.  For these areas, we’d recommend looking at laminate or vinyl flooring, which are designed to be water resistant, and are also available in wood finishes.
