Engineered wood flooring has several benefits compared with hardwood flooring, not the least of which is the fact that it usually costs less yet looks just like wood. This is because it is made up of layers, the top layer of which is a wear layer of something such as oak or walnut. This layer must be at least 2mm thick because if not, the flooring is classed as a veneer.
The base layers are usually of plywood, or the middle layer may be of something such as eucalyptus with the bottom layer of plywood. Engineered wood planks can have either a tongue and groove profile or can have a click-fitting system.
Can Be Used In Most Rooms
At Floor Direct we can supply and fit herringbone engineered wood flooring for you, and it can be used in most rooms. It is often used in hallways, but can also be used in living rooms, conservatories, and rooms with large windows because it can withstand changes in temperature and humidity. In addition, herringbone engineered wood flooring can be used in conjunction with underfloor heating systems for the same reasons.
Engineered wood flooring is quick and easy to fit and can be loose layed, or floated, on an underlay. It does not need to be fixed to the underlay. However, engineered wood can be glued directly to the substrate if an underlay is not used.
