TED TODD FLOORING
Engineered Wood Flooring
Engineered hardwood flooring is undoubtedly one of the most popular types of flooring we construct at Ted Todd.
Our engineered flooring is available in free samples so you can really get a feel for how it will look in your home.
One of the most common questions we get asked is, ‘what’s the difference between solid and engineered hardwood flooring?’ – it’s a valid question; on appearance alone, these two very different types of wood flooring can seem near identical.
The main difference is the way the planks of flooring are constructed. Engineered wood flooring is precision made from layered sections of solid wood bonded together. In engineered wood, the grain of each piece runs in a different direction to its adjacent layer.
What is engineered wood flooring?
Engineered wood flooring is made by laminating hardwood layer upon hardwood layer, the floor becomes significantly harder wearing as each piece pushes back against one another, reducing the tendency to expand and misshape.
An engineered wood floor is then loaded with a wear layer. This sits on top of the floor and usually is anywhere between 3mm and 6mm in thickness, allowing you to softly sand down the floor throughout the years to its original state.
Benefits of engineered wood flooring
- Engineered wood is superior to other wood due to its tightly packed structure
- Engineered wood flooring is hard-wearing – this makes it a wonderful option for high-traffic areas
- It is suitable for underfloor heating
- Available in a variety of styles, colours, and prices
