13.5mm Engineered Wood Flooring

13.5mm engineered wood flooring consists of a layer of real wood on the top and then base layers underneath made from various strengths of different woods.  The top layer of solid wood, or wear layer as it is sometimes known, can vary in thickness from 2.5mm to 4mm.  This is the species and finish of wood that you will choose for you flooring and it will determine the colour, style, grain pattern and surface finish.  This top layer of real wood is the only part of the flooring that you will see once it has been installed.  The base layers are there to give the flooring stability, strength and durability.

The total thickness of the plank of flooring will be 13.5mm.  As already mentioned, this in made from a wear layer of solid wood and multiple base layers.  For example if your 13.5mm flooring has a wear layer of 3.5mm, then the remaining 10mm is made up from the base layers which provide the additional strength in the plank of flooring.

When choosing 13.5mm thickness engineered flooring you have a choice of either the traditional tongue and grove fitting or the more modern click fitting system.  There are also different board widths and lengths to choose from which should help you to find something to meet your requirements.

 

Why should I choose 13.5mm thick engineered flooring?

13.5mm engineered hardwood flooring is a fantastic choice as it offers the elegance and beauty of a natural floor covering, which can last a lifetime of looked after correctly, and it can be found at a cost effective price.  It is a durable and robust flooring option that can be sanded down and refinished a number of times if necessary.

You have the choice of a range of species of hardwood for the wear layer of the flooring, including: Oak, Walnut and Blacknut, and also a choice of different finishes which define how the surface of the flooring will look.  You also have the added benefit of choosing between the traditional tongue and groove fitting profile, or the more modern click fitting system, which makes installation quicker and easier.  The click fitting system is only available on flooring with a thickness of 15mm or less as thicker and heavier boards require adhesive to secure the boards together.

13.5mm engineered hardwood flooring is perfect if you have, or want to install underfloor heating as the planks of flooring are still thin enough to allow the correct transfer of heat through from the heating system.
