Engineered Timber Flooring

An engineered timber floor is a 100% timber flooring product, but with all the benefits of modern technology. If you’re after a true timber floor, but want the practicality of modern techniques, then understanding what’s possible in an engineered timber floor is a great place to start.

Put simply, an engineered timber floor has a true timber top layer in your specified species, supported by plantation timber core materials. Depending on the floor this core might be a different kind of hardwood, or a plywood. What this means, is that you still get the timber you’re after, with a much more stable structure. One downfall of traditional solid flooring is that the grain ends aligned in one direction.

The downside of this, is that they don’t have the 3 dimensional stability of engineered timbers, and can be impacted by temperature, humidity and other environmental changes. By constructing a sandwich of alternating grain directions, and topping it with a thick veneer of your chosen timber, the floor becomes far more stable.

To protect the natural beauty of timber flooring the engineered flooring is pre-finished and highly advanced coatings are applied in the factory. Because of the prefinishing sanding and finishing during installation is not required.

At the same time, because they’re real wood, engineered timber floors still allow you to sand and refinish if the need was really to arise, and due to the depth of the tongue on the tongue and groove traditional hardwood floors, often you have more usable wood to work with when refinishing a hardwood floor.

The outcome? Is a genuine timber floor through the whole house, including wet areas, with a more stable product.

Let us organise installation for you through our network of trusted tradespeople, or lay it yourself as a DIY project. Whatever you decide Floorworld’s engineered timber flooring range brings the world of nature to your feet.
