Engineered Hardwood Flooring (T&G)
Engineered wooden flooring is composed of two or more layers of wood adhered together to form a plank. Typically, engineered flooring uses thin layers of cheaper wood (lamella) bonded to an expensive wood and so the top layer is finished with expensive wooden flooring. With this process the stability of the wood is increased and makes it a universal product that can be installed as midfloors, subfloors and on grade.
Other than stability, following are the advantages of this type of flooring.
- It looks just like real wood.
- It doesn't expand and contract to the same extent as solid wood and so It can be laid where, solid wood would risk damage.
- It is incredibly tough and durable and will stand up to heavy footfall in commercial and domestic environments.
- It can be sanded and can be refinished to give a new look again.
- Engineered floor boards can be wider than solid boards.
- It is easy to install.
There are several different types of engineered floors. See below for species and type available in engineered flooring. For more information, contact us.

Solid Hardwood Flooring (T&G)
A genuine hardwood timber floor has the long lasting value that reflects the beauty of nature which cannot be imitated, and will mellow with age.
In addition to feeling great and giving a stunning look, wooden flooring is:
- Hygienic - non-allergenic.
- Environmentally friendly.
- Very Durable - Denting and marking can occur but this is part of the character and aging of timber floors.
- Easy to install - Qualified carpenters and serious DIYers are able to lay them, though some floors would best be left to the professional floor layers. Sanding and sealing will usually require a professional tradesman.
- Easily Maintained.
