There are essentially two classifications of real wood flooring - solid wood flooring and engineered wood flooring. The so called "engineered wood flooring" has become increasingly popular for domestic and commercial use. It is a plank designed to have the appearance and wearing of solid wood flooring, but has less of its disadvantages. The engineered plank comprises of 2 layers - upper wearing layer of real wood and bottom part, which can vary in timber material that will help the plank contain its original volume, form and size in environment with higher temperature and himudity.
Going For Engineered Wood Flooring Installation
Over the last 10 years the engineered flooring has taken over 70% of the market of solid wood flooring. This significant figure shows how the consumer has recognised this product and it's benefits. Going for engineered wood floor installation, will count you as doing a wise choice as well.
Like any other wood flooring, the engineered one will also need time to acclimatise before fitting, because, as with solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring will change slightly in dimension in atmospheres of different temperature and moisture levels.
Engineered floors come with installation systems like tongue-and-groove or click. The click system of fitting engineered wood flooring is made of planks that click together, both at their sides and at their ends, click system flooring provides a stable result, which is likely to be resistant to moisture. Click system planks may not involve any gluing or nailing.
The type of underfloor is important. If it is wood, a moisture-proof underlay won't be needed, while if it's a concrete DPM enabled underlay will be highly-recommended. If you have underfloor heating, that is undoubtedly the right flooring for you, however we will recommend the right underlay, which will allow the heath to travel through.
Floating Floor Installation
This is the standard installation method for engineered wood flooring. It means the floors are laid without an actual bond to the subfloor, but usually over an underlay. The planks are connected between each other instead and as the are not contracting, we can safely consider this as right.
On some types of installations like presence of underfloor heating and thicker engineered flooring (such as 20+ mm) we may recommend nail-down or glue-down, to minimise the risk a of gapping or wabbling.
