When shopping around for your Engineered floor, it is very important to consider the thickness of the boards, which is normally measured in millimeters (mm). Our Engineered flooring ranges from 10mm, all the way to 20mm thick. During production, similar manufacturing excellence is applied to all thicknesses. However, there is a slight variance in the level of construction and the layers of plywood used, as well as the Solid Oak ‘veneer’ on top. Generally speaking, thicker floors are known to be more stable and in some cases easier to install.
When it comes to real wood flooring, thicker floors can simply be sanded down and re-treated for a fresh, new look a number of times throughout its life. Therefore, thicker boards are known to last longer, but sometimes a thinner floor may be more practical for a variety of different reasons, e.g. budget or the height between your floor and door. However, since our engineered flooring range starts off from considerably thick boards (10mm), durability and quality are assured.
Our Engineered flooring comes in a variety of widths to complement any style or design that you may have in mind. There is no right or wrong when choosing narrow or wide planks, it’s all down to personal preference. Some people prefer smaller planks, as they can make a room feel bigger, and some prefer wider planks due to their more simple and modern appearance.
Engineered flooring is usually found in varying widths of 70mm – 300mm.
