Engineered timber floors have become a popular alternative to solid floor boards as they are cheaper, quicker to install, easier to maintain, use less of the natural timber resource, yet still give the look of a genuine timber floor.
The range includes rich reds to deep browns and lighter shades to suit any décor from traditional to modern and supplied from reputable companies such as Boral, ReadyFlor and Embelton to suit your taste and you budget.
Easy and quick to install over concrete slab, sheet flooring materials or old floor boards most homes can be installed in a day or two and depending on how handy you are, you can even install the floor yourself. You can walk on it straight away, there is no need to sand or polish as this is already done with up to six coats of scratch resistant mid-gloss UV cured acrylic coating.
Constructed from a genuine timber 4mm top layer an 8mm core of plantation timber and a 2mm base soft timber engineered timber floors are more stable, less cracking, shrinking, and warping than a solid timber floor. The stability comes through the cross ply materials sandwich together with high quality heat cured adhesive, which limits the movement of any one layer.
