Engineered wood flooring is highly durable and a more stable material than solid wood flooring. Built up of a multi layered hardwood ply base and a 6mm solid oak wear layer, engineered wood flooring if much less prone to warping, twisting, cupping and expanding. It’s all down to the cross lamination of the plywood base which makes it so stable and it can be sanded and re-finished many times just as with solid wood (which it is on the surface).
Engineered wood flooring also has some other benefits over solid wood, for example it is classed as a structural grade material, which means it can be fixed straight onto joist with no need for any sub-floor, so whether you would just like to keep the floor level with other rooms or if you are building or renovating your property and would like to save time and money by not having to fit a sub-floor at all, engineered wood is probably the best option for you.
Engineered wood can also be installed over under-floor heating or where a large wood burner is present as well as in higher moisture content areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, basements and conservatories where heat and moisture may normally cause the wood to warp, over expand or even rot.
On top of all of the benefits that engineered wood offers, it also looks amazing. You can use a wider board as they won’t cup and has beautiful grain and colour variation with the perfect amount of knots and imperfections, mixed with some clean but still characterful boards, then finished with Osmo oils, which will give your floors the wow factor!
