Engineered flooring

Engineered wood is real wood. It is a sandwich of 1/16″ to 1/8″ of finish wood on top and non-finish plywood underneath. So, what you’re looking at is 100% genuine wood. Engineered flooring is most likey glued, secret nailed or both to the subfloor.
Whatever specie of solid hardwood, there is an equivalent specie of engineered wood flooring.

Why Choose Engineered Flooring For Your Home?

At MasterCraft Flooring, we work hard to ensure you have access to the widest selection of excellent flooring in Melbourne. Since there are so many options to choose from, it is a good idea to compare different floors for an informed decision.

Engineered hardwood flooring is a great choice for people living in Melbourne. This is because it is resistant to humidity and water damage. While other types of flooring can warp, crack, and become damaged over time, engineered floors are designed to withstand these issues.

What Makes Engineered Hardwood Flooring Unique?

Engineered flooring is a little bit different from solid hardwood floors:

- Instead of being milled from one piece of hardwood, engineered flooring uses multiple layers.

- Engineered flooring uses at least three layers of wood, up to many more, improving durability.

- The layers are stacked together in a cross-grain pattern to enhance the longevity of the floor.

- In the last step of the process, the different wood layers are bonded under high heat.

Unlike some other types of wood flooring, engineered flooring can be appropriate for basements and other areas of the home that might be subject to lots of humidity. Engineered hardwood also comes in a wide variety of wood types and colours.

If you have an existing concrete floor in any area of your home, you’ll probably find engineered flooring is the fastest way to convert it into a wood floor. Unlike most other types of flooring, engineered hardwood can usually be placed directly over concrete slabs.

What Are The Most Important Things To Know About An Engineered Floor?

Sometimes, people are concerned about the “look and feel” of an engineered wood floor. While it is true that you can tell the difference between engineered floors and solid plank when they are in the installation process, it’s difficult to discern the two once the floor is in place.

Engineered floors are usually easier to install, especially in a space that is of an unusual shape. Overall, engineered floors are also less expensive than hardwood. If you have a large area that you plan to re-floor, engineered wood is usually the way to go.

Engineered wood floors can last for many decades if you choose a good floor for your space. If you plan to resell in the future, it’s a good idea to go with a mid-range option that will provide you with greater value in the long run.
