Engineered Wood Flooring
Engineered Oak Flooring, is the combination of oak and plywood pressured, heated and bonded together to create a flooring that is wider than solid oak and is also a cheaper alterative to the solid wood flooring.
It has the same character, charm and beauty, but without the risk of shrinkage and unwanted movement that you would get from a solid oak floor.
Engineered flooring a more popular choice?
Engineered oak flooring has been a more popular choice over the previous years due to the cost, the stability that it provides, its appearance looking like a solid wood flooring and also the factor that it can be installed anywhere within the house and not have any issues with light moisture like solid oak wood has – especially in kitchens, bathrooms and basements. While furthermore solid wood flooring would need at least a week in the room before being laid for acclimatisation.
Reasons for having a engineered oak floor?
Other reasons for the fitting engineered oak floor within your home is that it is seen as the perfect partner for underfloor heating, due to coping well with the dry environment while also providing the floorboards stable and level.
