Engineered Flooring

Engineered Flooring is constructed of several layers of wood. It will usually consist of three different layers, a top hardwood layer, a core middle section and also a balancing bottom layer.

The several layers of wood are glued together under extreme pressure at 90 degree angles to each other.

The top layer is what gives the engineered floor its looks, this is a real hardwood layer which can vary in thickness from 0.7mm up to 6mm. The middle section is what give the floor its stability and strength and can be made from softwood, plywood or HDF.

The bottom balancing layer will usually be made from softwood. It is this construction which makes an engineered floor much more stable than a solid wood floor and thus can be installed as a floating floor over any type of subfloor. Floating installation is by far the easiest of all installation options.
