Maple is a type of wood that most people may associate just with North America and in particular Canada, because its leaf is on the national flag.
Maple is a strong and attractive wood, pale in colour but sturdy and durable in a way that makes it comparable to oak. One difference is that it tends to come with slightly lighter, more understated markings, providing a different look and one which may appeal to many buyers.
Engineered Maple Flooring
This Florence product is a beautiful light shade with a smooth finish and three strip floor alignments that make the pattern on each plank look like a series of bricks in the wall. Each plank is 14 mm thick with a 30 year warranty and click system installation which makes fitting these maple floors simple.
One of the major benefits of engineered hardwood flooring is easy assembly that can be carried out by people with little or no experience of installing a floor. No glue or other adhesive is involved as the pieces all interlock together. This type of flooring will require an underlay, with different sorts being available depending on whether the floor will be laid above a concrete underfloor or a wood one. Concrete underfloors will need an underlay with a moisture barrier.
Maple engineered wood flooring is noted for its strength and the clean, attractive pale shade. It offers a highly enticing combination of the qualities of durable engineered floors and the light beauty of pine flooring so you may find maple is ideal for you and your home.
