Simple to Install
Due to their stability and accuracy of machining, you also find out that engineered boards are much simpler to fit in general. Where solid oak is a little more challenging, engineered is much easier to work with.
 
Whether your floor is being laid by professionals or you’re planning to indulge in a little DIY, there’s a clear benefit to choosing engineered wood flooring over traditional alternatives.
 
 
It Looks Just Like Real Hardwood
Undoubtedly the best part about engineered wooden flooring is that it looks just like a beautiful solid wood board floor. It’s not a laminate!
 
The timber that is used on the surface is exactly the same timber that’s used in a solid hardwood board and therefore by appearance you can tell no difference. In fact, some think that engineered hardwood flooring has the potential to look better due to the varying dimensions available.
Vast Variety
Another great benefit of engineered wooden flooring is the wide range of grades, colors, dimensions, and finishes available. Particularly in oak.
 
With many choices on the market, it’s generally much simpler to find an engineered hardwood flooring that is to your style, tastes, design and purpose.
 
 
Wider Boards
When it comes to solid timber flooring, the wider and longer the floorboard, the more they tend to shrink and swell. Contrastingly, engineered wood flooring is more stable due to its construction as explained above. This allows you to go for much larger floorboards with much less worry in terms of movement within the floor.
 
 the engineering techniques used to create this type of flooring enables the creation of wider floor boards for a cost-effective price. The dimensions of wooden boards is usually dictated by the size of trees from which you cut them. Wide & long boards of a high grade require much larger sections of the tree making wide boards expensive in full solid oak board in comparison to engineered, as well as more difficult to source.
 
 
Cost-Effective
While engineered wood looks just like the real deal, it can be much more affordable.  Particularly on timbers such as American Black Walnut, which is a more expensive luxurious timber.
 
Within an engineered board, the majority of the structure is made up of the multi-laminate plywood under-core - meaning that less valuable walnut is used. That makes it more affordable with friendly environment.
 
The same often applies with European oak boards, though the European oak is more affordable timber than Walnut and therefore difference of price is not quite as noticeable. Some engineered oak floorboards will in fact be dearer than solid oak due to their aspects, but most tend to be cheaper or have similar price.
 
Our family has been in the timber, carpentry and flooring businesses for over a century. Over that time, we’ve evolved the products that we sell and now, we mostly focus on engineered wood flooring. clearly, it is unbeatable for the combination of quality, value and reliability that it provides.
 
 
It can be sanded like a Solid Wood Floor
the top layer of wood on your engineered hardwood floor is made of real wood. It means that it can be sanded and refinished like a solid wooden floor.
 
How many times you can sand down your engineered floor is depended on how thick the top layer of your floor (lamella or wear layer) is.
 
Stability 
The Stability of the engineered oak floor is depended on the quality of finish that has been used to treat the timber. This is exactly the same with engineered as it would be solid as the top layer of wood on an engineered oak board is the same.
