Timber engineered flooring is a great all-round interior solution. Offering greater stability and particularity than most other floors, it’s easy to see why more and more people are choosing this option. A relatively recently flooring solution, timber engineered flooring is so versatile, that it can literally be used in any interior setting as well as in every room in the home.
Why timber engineered flooring offers greater stability. The technical bit…
The secret to timber engineered flooring’s great stability is in its construction. Every board is cleverly constructed by bonding together layers of ply to create a really stable core board and then that core board is topped off with a real wood top layer or lamella. It’s this real wood top layer that makes timber engineered flooring look so much like traditional wood. But it really is different - because it is so stable.
When you bond layers and layers of ply together they become much more stable than a single piece of wood. Why is this the case? It’s because a single piece of wood is completely natural and expands and contracts when it comes into contact with fluctuating temperatures and moisture levels. While slight expansion and contraction isn’t an issue for a floor, any sort of significant expansion and contraction can cause unsightly gaps as well as cupping and bowing, which can make a lovely floor look awful over time.
This isn’t the case with timber engineered flooring. The stable core boards mean that expansion and contraction in this type of floor is minimal. This is why this flooring solution is known for its greater stability as well as its particularity. And this stability means that you can use timber engineered flooring throughout the whole home, including in bathrooms and kitchens as well as over under floor heating, without risk of damage.

- It comes unfinished. For anyone who’s struggling to choose their finish before seeing the floor in place, this is a great choice.
