WOOD FLOORING FAQS
Whilst bathrooms don’t seem like particularly hostile environments, the constantly changing levels of moisture combined with splashing water can damage wooden floors.
Yes engineered floors are compatible with underfloor heating (UFH).
The main issue to remember when combining a wooden floor with UFH is that the surface temperature should not exceed 27 degrees celsius. We do not recommend solid wood floors with UFH.
For floors with hardened coatings such as hardened oil, matt lacquer, satin lacquer, or naked skin lacquer, we have designed a simple system to care for your floor.
For oil based finishes such as restoration oil or burnished hardwax oil, we have designed a simple system to care for your floor.
Yes, all floors change to some degree, depending on species, type of finish, and the extent to which they are in contact with direct sunlight.
Most floors will experience a change of colour and tone down over time, meaning that obvious differences in colour or tone at an early stage of having laid the floor will gradually become more subtle as the floor ages.
Solid wood flooring is now very much in decline. This is due to increased awareness of sustainability and the need to reduce deforestation and changes in the market (such as using underfloor heating, people wanting wider floor boards etc…).
By choosing an engineered wood flooring board you are helping the environment. Engineered wood flooring uses about 75% less of the slow growing hardwoods such as oak. It also utilises the more of the faster growing hardwoods such as birch, eucalyptus and poplar to make the multi-cross-layer plywood backing of an engineered board. We can manufacture much more flooring from the same tree using engineered wooden flooring. Solid boards are normally 20mm thick and with a 6mm top layer we can get three times as much and with a 4mm top layer four times as much engineered wood flooring.
Engineered floors will not expand and contract like solid wood as they are approximately 70% more stable.
Not at all, the top layer of an engineered board is the same genuine wood that you have in a solid wood board. The finished look of an engineered wood floor will be identical to that of a solid wood floor.
