The perfect engineered wooden flooring
Each floorboard consists of three or four layers of wood, glued together at right angles to create a plank around 14mm thick. It has a real-wood veneer of around 4mm thick on top, which means it can be sanded back and treated to restore the original finish if it becomes scuffed, worn or damaged.
Real wood flooring
Solid wood planks are often thicker than laminate or engineered wood . Each board is made from a single piece of wood, typically 18-20mm thick. It is usually fitted using tongue-and-groove. All types of wood have a hardness score, which indicates how easily they can be damaged, dented or worn by everyday wear and tear.
Solid-wood flooring can be sanded back to restore the finish – the number of times is determined by how deep the tongue is set from the top of the board.
