Wood flooring is a highly practical flooring solution, which, with the right maintenance could easily last a lifetime. It is for this reason, when planning your wood flooring project, it’s important to think about the long term as well as the short term.
Wood flooring comes in two varieties, solid and engineered. Engineered wood flooring has the benefit of being suitable for installation over under floor heating. Not to be confused with laminate flooring, which is essentially fake wood flooring, engineered wood flooring is a highly stable and attractive flooring option. Solid wood flooring, has been the flooring of choice in castles and stately homes for centuries and is seeing a real renaissance today.
