Engineered Oak Flooring

Engineered oak wood flooring consists of a top layer (lamella) of Oak, this is adhered to a plywood core to give stability and strength. The oak top layer runs 90 degrees to the plywood base to create a stronger and more durable board. The wear layer can range from around 2.5mm - 6mm, depending upon the exact flooring that you choose. This method of construction means that the planks of flooring are more stable when exposed to extreme conditions. Engineered oak flooring can be floated over an underlay or fixed into position with flexible adhesive. The planks of flooring can be made much wider and longer than solid oak planks as they have a stonger construction. 

For more information about engineered Oak flooring, please read the following article: What is Engineered Oak Flooring?

 

Why engineered oak flooring?

Engineered Oak flooring is a great investment for any homeowner. It offers character, charm and a timeless appeal, along with the versatility of fitting and the ease of cleaning and maintenance. Engineered oak flooring is more cost effective than solid oak and can usually be found at around 20% cheaper. However, once your engineered oak flooring has been installed it would be almost impossible to tell whether it was a solid or engineered wood floor. The only part that you see (the wear layer of Oak), is exactly the same.  Engineered flooring is also very popular because of its ability to withstand changes in temperature and humidity, meaning that it can be used in kitchens, conservatories and even with underfloor heating.

For more reasons why to choose this flooring, please see Advantages of Engineered Wood Flooring.

 

How do I install and maintain engineered oak flooring?

Installing any kind of hardwood floor depends upon the type of subfloor you have and the type of hardwood flooring you want to install. Engineered Oak flooring is available with either a click fitting system or a more traditional tongue and groove fitting profile.  Both of these can either be floated over an underlay or alternatively fixed directly down to the subfloor with flexible flooring adhesive.

For further information about installing your hardwood floor please see our Installation Fitting Guide, or contact us for if you would like any professional or technical help.

Once your new Oak flooring has been installed you will want to make sure it stays looking fresh and new for as long as possible.  All types and species of hardwood floors are easy to look after of you follow some simple steps.  Brush regularly with a soft bristle brush to remove any dust, dirt or grit, and then clean with a wooden floor cleaning spray and microfibre mop. To prevent unwanted scratches or dents from occurring, remember to remove outdoor footwear and use felt protector pads underneath furniture. 

If you would like to know more about cleaning your Oak flooring to maintain its beauty, have a look at our Cleaning and Maintenance Guide.
