Engineered timber flooring is a stunning natural surface
European oak or French Oak has a strong appeal due to its natural features. Engineered oak floorboards have the beauty of tight natural variations. European oak is desired for having a fantastic plain sawn pattern, flanked by a unique rift and quartered grain pattern, all in the same piece of wood.
Floating floorboards stronger than solid timber flooring
Engineered oak floorboards have an engineered base made from gluing multiple layers of plantation plywood in many directions to give it superior strength. The engineered base does not change shape like solid timber, so floorboards are available in wider sizes. Wide engineered oak floorboards measure 2.2m long and 220mm wide, while the smaller size is 1.9m long by 190mm wide. Engineered boards are also more tolerant of moisture than solid boards.
Melbourne timber flooring that’s environment-friendly
Engineered flooring boards are predominantly sustainable plantation plywood, which is much friendlier to the planet than solid oak floors. Most of the floorboard base is from regenerating plantation forests. Engineered oak floorboards can be quickly installed hassle-free. This flooring is pre-finished and ready to walk on right after installation.
