What is engineered flooring?
Engineered flooring is an innovative product designed to combine the aesthetics of solid wood with the durability of a human-made material.
Engineered wood uses timber. It’s created by layering plywood or recycled wood in a cross-grained pattern for strength. The material is then heat-treated and bonded with pressure to create a very hard-wearing product. For a realistic finish, plywood layers receive with a real wood veneer on top (known as the wear layer).
High quality engineered wood flooring can withstand the demands of heavy traffic areas and many varieties can cope with high moisture rooms, like kitchens or bathrooms, too.
