Engineered flooring is 100% timber. It is multi-layered in construction, with a premium hardwood timber wear surface, a middle core layer and a backing of veneer, to provide greater stability. The wear layer of these differs marginally between brands, with an average of 4mm.
The boards are finished in 5 or 6 coats of high quality UV hardened lacquer (available in matt and satin) – or oil. These surface coatings are applied in dust-free conditions and are baked on to provide a flawless finish. Precision made, each joint matches perfectly.
