What Is Engineered Wood Flooring?




Engineered Wood Flooring Construction

The visual beauty of Engineered hardwood is the same as solid wood however it is essentially a thin piece of real wood veneer over a plywood substrate making it far more of a stable product and less likely to warp and bow and most can be fitted of underfloor heating (check with manufacturer for more details). Its practical qualities make it a good choice in most rooms even directly over concrete when laid with the correct underlay. What's more, the total thickness of most engineered click system floors is only 14mm to 15mm, so it can be installed over an existing floor -- say, during a kitchen renovation -- with a minimal increase in level.

Some tongue and groove engineered floors due have a thickness between 18mm and 20mm.

It is also available in most hardwood species. The engineered floor product has been designed to provide greater stability, particularly where moisture or heat pose problems for solid hardwood floors ie underfloor heating and some concrete sub floors.  

99.9% of Engineered floors sold on this website are installed by the floating method with the easy to use click system- which makes them as easy as laminate floors to lay just click together and you're done no glues no mess, perfect for the DIY installer or the professional installer .


Inspect all materials carefully before installation. Wood is a natural product containing variations in colour, tone and graining. Some variation in colour is to be expected in a natural wood floor. Beautiful hardwood floors are a product of nature and therefore not perfect. These floors are manufactured in accordance with accepted industry standards, which permit a defect tolerance of 5%. It is the responsibility of the customer and installer to perform a final inspection prior to installation. Any warranties offered with this product do not cover materials with visible defects once the product is installed.

The area's temperature and humidity conditions must be measured prior to installation. Moisture levels should not exceed 12-14%. It is the responsibility of the owner-installer to determine if the sub-floor and area conditions are environmentally and structurally acceptable for wood floor installation. The installer-owner is responsible for wood failure resulting from or connected with sub-floor,deficiencies or using inadequate accessories after the hardwood flooring has been installed.
