Are you seeking for the ideal timber flooring or engineered hardwood flooring for your home’s construction, renovation, or modernization project? The first thing you will notice when you open the door is the flooring, which is a crucial design component in any home. In order to further ensure structural integrity, engineered timber flooring blends a robust, natural hardwood surface with many layers of plywood. It is incredibly resilient to dampness and stronger than solid wood flooring.
Homeowners prize engineered timber flooring for its aesthetic appeal and robustness. It may instantly change the tone and aesthetic of a space and increase the value of your home. Engineered wood offers a large selection with finishes and colors to fit your taste, whether you choose a light-toned floor or a rich, dark one, a fine-grained or realistic look. Due to its fine grain structure and variety of treatments, oak is the ideal timber species for creating a rustic or modern impression.
Engineered timber flooring is an eco-friendly choice as it optimizes the use of hardwood, reducing the impact on forests. It also tends to be more cost-effective compared to solid hardwood flooring while maintaining the same elegance and durability. Whether you’re looking for a classic, timeless look or a contemporary, sleek appearance, engineered timber flooring provides the versatility to achieve your desired aesthetic. Make a statement with your flooring by choosing engineered timber, the perfect blend of style, sustainability, and strength.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring: Exactly What Is It?
Engineered hardwood floors are made up of layers. The top layer is 100% natural wood, which comes in a variety of species. The bottom layer is also wood. In the middle is a core built from 5 to 7 layers of plywood that crisscross in different directions. Engineered construction creates a highly stable core that is less likely to expand, contract or shift when exposed to moisture, humidity and temperature.
What sets engineered hardwood apart is the core, which is meticulously crafted from 5 to 7 layers of plywood that crisscross in different directions. This engineered construction creates a highly stable core that is less likely to expand, contract, or shift when exposed to moisture, humidity, and temperature fluctuations.
The result is a flooring option that not only retains its structural integrity but also maintains its aesthetic charm even in challenging environmental conditions. So, whether you’re dealing with a humid climate or fluctuating temperatures, engineered hardwood flooring provides a reliable and resilient solution to complement your interior design with beauty and durability.
Engineered flooring adds value and structure to your home and is available in various species types, stains and sizes. Engineered flooring is also supplied with a v groove as shown in the image. This highlights each plank and gives you the full view of the plank size.
With a few exceptions, engineered wood flooring is available in a wide range of styles, ranging from traditional to specialty designs with features like multi-tonal colors and handcrafted tool markings. Certain looks, such as extra-wide planks, may only be possible with engineered wood.
The difference between solid wood and Engineered Hardwood Flooring, Engineered wood can be sanded and refinished several times throughout the life of the floor. If your durability concerns are around moisture, humidity or temperature, engineered is the way to go. Its layered construction provides stability against environmental changes. Premium engineered products come with warranty and top quality finish for superior scratch protection.
Engineered flooring is more affordable than solid wood flooring. Engineered flooring can be installed over your existing floor for quick and easy installations, where solid wood flooring would require a raised sub floor or to be glued down.
Engineered Hardwood Flooring: Where can it be used?
Engineered flooring can be used only indoors. This flooring is suitable to be used in both homes and offices. Due to the cost of these flooring types, it’s mostly used in upmarket homes and exclusive companies. Engineered wood is an excellent choice for areas where solid hardwood cannot be installed, like in basements, over concrete floors or over radiant heating systems. Engineered flooring can also be installed in kitchens.
How to Clean Laminate Flooring?
So now that you have your floors installed, the next step is to ask yourself: How do I clean my Laminate Flooring?
Proper maintenance can ensure that your floors serve for their maximum lifespan. Just like all wood or wood composite floors, engineered flooring should not be exposed to stagnant pools of water for extended amounts of time.
Therefore, always clean up spills as soon as possible. Engineered flooring can be wet mopped but is not full water-proof. To preserve the life of your floors and flooring finishes, we recommend that no harsh chemicals and detergents are used in cleaning your floors. Even though these floors can be mopped, we do suggest using a well-rinsed mop when cleaning.
Avoid dragging objects onto your flooring, installing carpet pieces under your chairs and other furniture items that may be moved or dragged.
To further maintain the pristine condition of your engineered flooring, avoid dragging heavy objects or furniture across the floor, and consider placing carpet pieces under chairs and other furniture items that may be moved or dragged. These simple steps can help preserve the beauty and longevity of your engineered hardwood flooring, ensuring it remains a timeless and elegant addition to your space.
