Engineered Wood Flooring
What Is It?
This is made basically from three layers, a solid real wood top layer ranging from 2mm to 6mm in thickness. Which is glued to multiple layers of thin plywood which run in different directions. This makes for a much more stable hardwood compared to solid wood.
How Does It Fit?
There are two different profiles of how the floor planks fit together. Firstly it comes in tongue and groove edges which can be secret nailed to a wooden sub-floor. Or can be glued down if laying onto a concrete base. Secondly we sell a large selection of an easy to fit click together system that can be installed as a floating floor, making installation faster and easier.
