Engineered Timber Flooring
Engineered hardwood is a versatile alternative to solid wood. Unlike solid hardwood, which is one piece of wood milled from a tree, engineered wood flooring is actually made of several wood plies (layers) that are fused together under heat and pressure.
This being the case it is safe to say that engineered timber flooring provides the same overall benefits of solid wood flooring.

Appearance; engineered hardwood flooring adds warmth and value to your home. As with timber flooring at Ideas Flooring you will find engineered timber flooring in a variety of finishes, species and widths – you’re sure to find the perfect match for your home.

A high-quality and correctly-installed wood floor will add warmth, character and value to your interior as long as you’re in your house which applies to both engineered and solid wood flooring.
Installation; when it comes to installation engineered timber flooring has an obvious advantage over solid wood flooring as engineered wood lets you install it in a few more rooms of the house than you can with solid wood Furthermore, it is easier than solid hardwood to install as you have a greater range of installation methods: stapling or nailing, click, or glue. At Ideas Flooring our installation experts will provide you with the best installation methods suitable for your home.
Durability; due to the fact that engineered timber flooring has a dimensionally stable base it warps and flexes less easily upon contact with moisture than solid wood. Fibres in plywood run in cross-wise layers making it a far more stable structure than solid wood’s parallel fibres.
Value; excellent. Engineered wood is still wood. What this means is that even though it may not be marketed as high as solid wood, it still ranks high up there when referring to quality flooring adding value to your home.
