Engineered wood flooring is a great alternative to solid wood. Made up of a solid oak lamella or top layer, bonded to a plywood base, engineered wood flooring should not be confused with laminate flooring.
Engineered wood flooring offers a highly stable flooring solution with minimal shrinkage or expansion. Engineered wood flooring also offers real flexibility in its fixing method and is generally suitable for use over under floor heating.
Oiled finish engineered wood flooring offers all the benefits of engineered wood flooring and boasts a really natural, warm look. By applying an oiled finish to engineered wood flooring, the true character of the wood is brought to life without the introduction of any surface shine. An easy to repair flooring solution, pre-oiled engineered wood flooring, normally requires a coating of hardwax oil after installation to give it full protection.
Oiled finish engineered wood flooring is an extremely hard wearing flooring option because the oil strengthens the surface of the wood, allowing it to withstand the trials and tribulations of day-to-day life. What’s more, oiled finish engineered wood flooring is easy to repair using wax or maintenance oil, removing the need to sand the whole floor in the event of damage. Add to this list the natural, matt look achieved by oiled finish engineered wood flooring and you begin to see what an attractive flooring option this is.
