Engineered wood flooring is a really popular flooring solution and looks just like solid wood. Not to be confused with laminate flooring, engineered wood flooring can be fitted using a broad range of fitting methods and is the ideal solution where there is a risk of humidity. Made up of a solid oak lamella or top layer, which is bonded on to a plywood or MDF (multi-density fibreboard) base, engineered wood flooring can be treated just like solid wood flooring once it’s laid.
A highly stable flooring solution which doesn’t shrink and expand to the same extent as solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring has the additional benefit of being suitable to fit over under floor heating.
Natural grade engineered wood flooring is made up of layers topped by natural grade solid oak. Natural grade solid wood in the trade is often called mill-run or ABCD grade wood. It features knots of various sizes, which can be up to 30mm in size. The colour variation of natural grade engineered wood floor will also be greater than the higher grades of wood, but this should not necessarily be viewed as a negative, because these features can help add charm to your interior.
Available in a whole range of finishes and colours, natural grade engineered wood flooring is a popular and versatile flooring choice.
