Engineered wood flooring is fast growing in popularity and is evolving at a rate never seen before.
The typical structure of engineered flooring is a primary top layer of protective lacquer or oil with a thin layer of solid wood underneath. This layer of solid wood (ranging in thickness) rests on a base comprised typically of plywood, HDF or another similar material.
This type of flooring essentially imitates solid hard wood flooring whilst offering some attractive benefits hard wood can not provide. One of the main benefits is that engineered wood flooring can be used in various areas where solid wood is simply not practical or even feasible. Areas such as conservatories, wet rooms or long spanning hall ways.
The reason is that the construction of these boards makes them significantly more stable. This makes them the product of choice in areas that may be exposed to moisture or radiant heat which could cause solid wood to move or cup. Engineered wooden flooring provides the desired look whilst delivering the added stability in such situations.
