The flooring today has been pre-cut, doesn't require finishing and has a decreased thickness. The thickness of the engineered wood allows it to be bent into place and will then click into place with a little glue to hold it there.
The benefits of using this engineered wood flooring are plentiful and we will look at those before we example the range of flooring you have to choose from.
The engineered wood flooring lasts longer than regular wood flooring used for more than a century. We have already mentioned that it comes finished, so rather than having to stripe the wood and then place a lacquer on it you don't have to be concerned. The wood is treated in the shop, finished, and ready to bend with a rubber like quality.
The last two advantages to using this flooring are the ease of use and not to mention the quickness.
As we mentioned above you just need to snap it into place and then make sure there is a little glue to keep it securely in place.
This method of 'snapping in place' is easier and you could potentially have every floor in your home finished with wood flooring in one day due to its very quick installation.
There is a large range of products in the engineered wood flooring category.
To start off you have beech rustic wood flooring. This is a mild colour, with a natural wood appearance.
There are several types of oak flooring available as well. Oak is by far the most popular flooring used in a home.
You have different widths as well as different grains with oak to choose from.
Boen oak is one choice that has a bit of a darker finish than the natural oak.
Walnut is the other choice. This is going to be one of the darker grains available in wood flooring. While there may be a little light wood throughout it is mostly a black walnut.
You can also buy oil, lacquered, or brushed oak offering a bit of a darker appearance for the wood.
One last benefit to mention regarding the engineered wood flooring is the cost. The cost of the flooring can range anything from £27.95 up to £132, but this depends on how you are going to purchase it. If you are buying the flooring per square meter you will pay less than the per pack price.
The Boen Oak tends to be the most expensive option in the range of flooring that you have, where as the Natural finish Oak will be the least expensive.
The cost is dependent on the type of wood and the finish you are looking for. With the range of different types of engineered wood flooring, you can find just about anything you need.
