What is Engineered Wood Flooring?
Engineered Wood Flooring is a type of hardwood flooring which is composed of multiple layers of timber stuck together, and then finished with a layer of hardwood lamella. Engineered wood flooring is seen as an appealing alternative to solid wood flooring as it looks similar, but the construction of the plank allows greater stability, meaning it is able to withstand high levels of moisture and fluctuations in temperature, making it an ideal flooring solution for underfloor heating.
Engineered Flooring is the latest premium quality innovation by Australia’s leading in timber flooring products. Floating floor has been designed to take the hassle out of transforming your home with the beauty of a natural timber floor.
The fact that Floating floor is not vertically adhered to the subfloor during the installation process gives it significant advantages over other timber flooring options like traditional floorboards or parquetry.
