Engineered wood flooring is constructed from multiple layers of wood, with a beautiful layer of solid wood on top. Its layers make it resistant to changes in temperature, meaning it’s suitable for conservatories and basements. The solid wood veneer gives it a beautiful and natural finish, which varies on the species and grain of the wood.
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 2-3 layers or more. 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 – 6mm thick, and is 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 reduces the opportunity for buckling and twisting.
Other advantages of engineered wood flooring are that firstly; it is incredibly easy to install, and secondly; it lasts for years. Depending on the area in which it’s laid, engineered flooring can last for more than 30 years!
