Engineered Timber Flooring
An engineered board comprises of two or more layers of wood, or more commonly wood and plywood, bonded together. This forms a far more stable plank, less prone to gapping, cupping or crowning under changes in temperature or humidity. The top or 'wear' layer of the plank is often of a similar depth to that of a solid board above the tongue providing an equal sandable surface.
Because of their stability engineered boards may be longer and wider than solid planks and they can be laid 'floating', increasing the ease of repair and reducing the time and cost of installation.
