Why Engineered

Wood flooring is beautiful and unique. It is a timeless classic that looks simply stunning in any room or setting.

Engineered real wood flooring gives the best of both worlds - the luxury of a real wood finish plus the ease of installation. 


A top layer of oak gives you a highly individual floor with natural warmth and character. It can resist shrinkage or distortion because of the cross layer of plywood backing. But in terms of physical appearance, it can look exactly the same as solid oak, retaining the beauty and authentic appearance of the latter. 

Manufactured to the highest standards, this flooring can be sanded and re-oiled or lacquered 3 to 5 times to last even longer.


It's a perfect solution that is resistant to swelling, warping or shrinkage as opposed to solid wood floors.

More Benefits

Advantages of engineered flooring:

  • Minimal shrinkage or warping;

  • Very stable construction;

  • Engineered wood floors are more dimensionally stable than solid wood floors;

  • Suitable for use over under floor heating;

  • Extended usage due to 4 or 6 mm oak wear layer;

  • The best engineered floors have a Lifespan anywhere from 60 - 100 years;

  • Using an engineered wood floor allows you to have a wood floor on any grade level;

  • Engineered floors are very easy and fast to install

  • Engineered hardwood flooring can be used on wood subfloors or dry concrete slabs;

Important Facts to note when buying your floor

  • Wood is a natural material and will have variations from board to board and even within the board, not only in the visual features but also in the mineral density and fibre density. This natural variation in the wood responds to the process reaction during any subsequent

  • colouring process whereby the speed of the reactions (E.g. fuming reactivity) and/or stain absorption saturation point can give a rise to variation in hue and density of the observed colour. The result is a distribution or range of colours and tones around a central median

  • colour. Subtle variation between individual trees and different parts of the same tree can

  • result in different ranges of colour hue and density and also a difference in the median colour of a board exposed to the same production process. Any batch of flooring will in all probability be constituted from more than one tree. The full run of supplied flooring will not only have a wider distribution of colour hue and density than a limited selection shown in a sample panel, board or swatch, but may have multiple distributions of colour hue and density overlaid on a range of median colours.

  • Indeed, a sample panel, being a sample will not exhibit the extremes or full range of the variation in the colour. Examples of how this might appear could be:

  • Placing a board against the sample, the board may appear lighter, darker or have a different hue or density in colour. Two boards placed side by side could have a different median colour.

  • With a board, the colour may vary (E.g. in the vicinity of a knot)

  • This is the natural variation as expected from a natural material. The median colour of the sample will reside within the full colour range of the production batch.
