Engineered Wood Flooring
Although it is undoubtedly the most popular type of flooring used today, very few actually know what 'Engineered Wood Flooring' actually is. Engineered wood flooring is constructed from three layers of wood, pressed on top of each other and at conflicting angles. This is called 'layering' and is manufactured this way to make the floor more solid and stable and to combat and control the amount of expansion and contraction that typically happens with a solid wood floor. An engineered wood floor is 100% real wood. The top layer of engineered wood flooring is the finishing layer, typically made from Oak, Walnut and other hardwoods with a thickness of 3mm or 4mm which allow the top layer to be re-sanded and finished many times over the course of it's lifetime. The bottom two layers are usually poplar or birch wood, both softwoods, unsuitable as a top layer due to their softness.
Engineered wood flooring can be used in a variety of areas unlike solid wood flooring or laminate flooring. It can be laid on top of concrete as a 'floating floor' construction which means that the floor isn't nailed or glued to the subfloor. With it's patented Uni-click profile, our ranges from Swiss Hardwoods and Quickstep offer easy and quick installation, meaning no adhesives or nails required and no unsightly gaps between the boards.
Engineered wood flooring is also very eco-freindly due to the fact that less of Mother Earth's slow growing hardwoods are used in the manufacturing process. Both our manufacturers Swiss Hardwoods and Quickstep are members of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), ensuring all our engineered wood flooring is sourced from certified and ecologically managed forests.
