Engineered and solid hardwood flooring

Some of us may get a little confused with the several different wood types used frequently for flooring in homes and other places like restaurants and hotels. In this post we would like to present both engineered and solid hardwood flooring and the benefits characterising the two types of wood.


Where and when to use solid and engineered planks?

Most commonly it is better to choose engineered type rather than solid one. This is important especially when the area to be floored with natural wood will experience larger temperature fluctuations followed by (sometimes even radical) changes in humidity. The two factors make the use of engineered wood a better choice as it is less prone to shrinking, bending, expanding, etc.


Why to use engineered rather than solid wooden floors?

Typically used engineered floors are manufactured from a multi-layered plank surface which allow the wood to be both structurally stable and flexible at the same time. It may contain an inner layer of plywood or hardwood including also the veneer layer which is traditionally glued on top of them. Such solution brings more comfort and protection for the wood as it is more stable and durable.


Where to find best quality engineered and solid panels?

We invite you to see the wide range of hardwood floors as well as professional floor sanding equipment to hire on oak flooring supplies. Depending on your needs you can choose from versal panels, engineered and solid floors, parquets, mosaics and lots of different wooden floor types.
