There are two types of hardwood flooring: -

Engineered flooring is constructed from several layers of wood fused together. The core is made from layers of HDF, plywood or softwood running in different directions to increase overall stability of the floor. The top layer, often called the 'Wear Layer', in an engineered board is always made from a veneer of solid wood between 2-6mm in thickness. Because this top layer is made from a solid wood veneer, it has the overall visual characteristics of a solid floor. Engineered floors are also simple to install thanks to a selection of T&G or LOC fixing systems available.

Solid flooring is made from a single piece of timber and provides a unique and timeless design to any home interior thanks to its stunning characteristics. Solid flooring will also stand the test of time as it can be sanded and refinished many times providing your with a revitalised floor should scratches or damage occur.
