THE BENEFITS OF engineered WOOD FLOORING
Choosing wood flooring for your home or project will give it a sense of natural warmth and beauty. It’s a classic choice that suits both traditional and contemporary interiors and will serve you well for years to come.
There are many reasons to choose engineered wood flooring over solid wood flooring, from a wide variety of style options to easier installation and lasting peace of mind. Here are a few reasons why we recommend engineered wood flooring:
Uses less precious hardwood resource
Achieves the look and feel of solid timber
Wider and longer planks available
Options to suit most budgets
Can be re-sanded
Quick and easy to install
Less installation wastage
