Engineered flooring is exceedingly popular due to its versatile nature and pleasing appearance. It is able to withstand higher temperatures other floors may not be able and therefore a perfect choice if you want under floor heating, something the modern age is moving more towards.
It’s generous thickness of 3mm means it is able to be sanded down twice, so it is not the end of the world if you get a stain or a scratch! However, this is not usually necessary for 15-20 years, so you can imagine how much time you’re going to have with your flooring looking as fresh as the day you bought it. Our substantial 25-year guarantee gives you peace of mind too.
The bevelled edges gives the flooring another dimension as opposed to completely flat surface. The size of the planks allows the flooring to have some character, without looking too busy which is ideal if you want a softer look. The brushed effect not only looks authentic and rustic, but can disguise scratches. That’s why we’d recommend this effect if you have pets or young children.
Wooden flooring never goes out of fashion; therefore, you can rest assured that when it comes to sell buyers will love its timeless appeal. The grade of the wood and plank lay out is easy on the eye, therefore it would adhere to most people’s tastes.
Our Engineered Flooring can be installed in three different ways, so it depends on your joining method, the subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.
- 1. Floating Floor
- 2. Gluing
- 3. Nailing
In a floating floor, the boards are joined to each other, instead of to the subfloor. If you have a click-joining floor, floating is the way to go. If not, you could still use this method by gluing the tongue and the groove joint together. Either way, we'd advise you to have underlay installed and prepped. We wouldn't recommend this method for tongue & groove parquet as it won't be as sturdy.
With this method, adhesive is applied to the top of the subfloor with a trowel and then the individual planks are laid on top. This is our favoured method for tongue & groove parquet flooring but isn't suitable for any type of click-fit boards.
With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Because of this, nailing is only suitable for tongue & groove floors, not click-fit. Professional fitters tend to prefer this method as the result is extremely secure. You'll need to fit a wood layer above any concrete because secret nailing cannot be done directly on top of a concrete subfloor.
