At Floor Direct in Islington, many of our customers opt for engineered wood flooring. One of its’ many benefits is that it has a very long lifespan, and yet it can be less expensive than a high-priced hardwood such as maple. However, it may be slightly more expensive than some of the common hardwoods like laminate flooring, but since it lasts so long you also need to take that into account.
Engineered wood consists of several layers which produces a floorboard that is extremely stable. It is favoured for use in kitchens as opposed to hardwood. Although there is the risk of moisture in a kitchen, engineered wood will expand and contract which is one of its’ benefits compared with hardwood.
Engineered wood comes in floating system like click or tongue and groove. Depending on the type and condition of your subfloor, floor direct experts will advise your best choice. If you are looking for engineered wood for sale in the UK, Floor direct can install for you in any room in your home.
Obviously, you want your wood floor surface to look great, and as with hardwood it can be subject to scuff marks. But the good news is that the boards can be sanded down. Then you can simply have it refinished, and you have what is to all intents and purposes a new floor again.
Call us at Floor Direct for sanding and varnish services and turn you cheap engineered wood flooring to a completely new fresh look.
