A worthwhile compromise
Good quality engineered flooring responds to wood floor restoration.Â It lasts a century and looks just as realistic as the solid wood versions.
The construction – up to three layers of hardwood on top of a softwood core – controls the natural movement of a wood floor, is more resistant to moisture and therefore more stable.
Its tongue and groove edges enable it to be fully glued down or laid on top of a suitable underlay as a floated floor.
Depending on the thickness of the veneer, floor sanding and polishing can take place
up to five times.Â As the boards come pre-finished, they offer a greater choice of styles and finishes than with solid floors.
