Engineered wood flooring gives the best of both worlds between laminate and solid wood. They are composed of a top wear layer, often referred to as the veneer of a particularly species. Oak is the most popular type of wood used but walnut, cherry and acacia are also available, ranging in size from 1.6mm up to 6mm in depth. The boards’ bottom layer is then comprised of a mixture of ply and sap wood composites to give the board greater stability from the stresses of expansion and contraction due to heat, temperature and moisture changes in their installation environment. This makes engineered boards the ideal choice for underfloor heating installations. Many engineered wooden flooring products also come with a click system that will ultimately save you money in fitting costs, as, like laminate flooring, the boards will simply click together.
