Constructed from multiple wood layers with a hard wood surface, engineered floors are the modern alternative to solid wood. They offer several practical advantages without compromising on the authentic real wood look and feel. Its layered construction is more stable than solid wood and will not be as affected by humidity changes in the environment. This dimensional stability means there is less need to accommodate for seasonal movement when installing, a reduced acclimatization period and it allows engineered floors to be fitted above underfloor heating. This allows for a floating floor installation, some with a click system, making for a simple installation.
