So many choices, where do you start?
Engineered timber laminate flooring has come a long way since its introduction in 1960’s. The benefits for timber laminate flooring is it’s cheaper than solid hardwood and you can pick the exact finish you want.
With a stunning new line in waterproof laminate that provides choices in everything from a grey limed finish to the natural look of Spotted Gum whilst being resistant to moisture damage the options in laminate are becoming more durable than ever before.
Engineered flooring simply means that the product is patented with a locking in system rather than a standard tongue and groove and applies to laminates, bamboos, timber veneer (real timber over plywood rather than a print over composite board) engineered flooring usually floats on an underlay of which there are also many choices ranging from 2mm foam to 8mm rubberised acoustic rated underlay.
Each product has its pros and cons which range from how hard wearing it need to be based on traffic or how much to spend on the home based on its value Leon from 5 Star Floors can help add some clarity to the multiple choices available.
The popular choice of architects and interior designers.
Looking for a modern designer look? The new range of modern Wide Oak flooring options is not only wider but is generally thicker than regular engineered boards. It can be glued directly to the sub floor or floated.
The fact that this product is best directly fixed to the substrate means it is more comparable with a solid floor than an engineered floor with a 4 to 6mm wear layer it can be re-sanded and coated as often as most solid floors. With the character of traditional European Oaks and the durability of a solid board you can’t go past it. It’s also available in a huge range of finishes to suit any decor.
Concerned about your carbon footprint?
Looking for something environmentally friendly and durable? Bamboo flooring, with its eco-friendly cultivation and production process might be the floor for you. Bamboo is considered the most environmentally friendly flooring as bamboo has a quick regenerative rate. Bamboo renews itself in as little as 5 years, whilst hardwoods obviously take longer at 30 to 50 years.
Bamboo is easy to clean and maintain and strand woven bamboo will typically never need refinishing in a residential environment.
Save money by starting with the right advice.
Still want a beautiful timber floor but on a tight budget. With the right stain and some expert knowledge, we can turn even the dreariest old pine floorboards into something special.
Alternatively, vinyl plank flooring or budget laminate can be a cost-effective solution. Vinyl plank and some timber laminate are now also water resistant enough to lay in wet areas.
