Engineered Timber Flooring Tauranga | Palmerston North | Nelson

Engineered Timber Flooring

Engineered timber is a flooring option that allows you to achieve the look of a beautiful hardwood floor, without the disruption of installing solid timber. Engineered Timber Flooring has a top layer of solid timber adhered to an engineered core, giving the appearance of hardwood floors with a number of significant benefits.

At The Flooring Room, we have seen engineered timber flooring explode in popularity among our clients in Tauranga, Nelson and Palmerston North. Here’s just a few of the reasons why.

Engineered Timber Flooring

Beautiful Hardwood Look at an Affordable Price

One of the main reasons people in Tauranga, Nelson and Palmerston North are falling in love with engineered timber flooring is that its top layer is actually wood, making it indistinguishable from solid timber flooring. The introduction of engineered timber to the flooring market allows people to bring the beauty, character and warmth of wood into their homes for less money. And as an added bonus, the variety of styles, colours and finishes that engineered flooring offers means that it can suit a range of houses from traditional villas to modern Scandi-inspired homes.

Durable and Stable Flooring

When well maintained and regularly cleaned, engineered floors can last the entire lifetime of a house. That engineered core isn’t for nothing: the timber is made to be extremely hard-wearing and durable. Its high tolerance to moisture is particularly useful in NZ’s humid climate, giving you floorboards that won’t shrink, warp or cup as easily as traditional hardwood could. These timber floors are real timber that can be sanded back and re-finished in the future if necessary.

Ease of Installation

The layered nature of engineered flooring makes it very easy to install, which in turn saves you time and money. Because the boards are altered, they are a more consistent size and shape and they join together more easily when laid. And plywood subfloors are not necessary – engineered timber can be installed directly onto concrete floors.

Sustainable Flooring

Environmentalists appreciate that engineered timber uses far less wood than traditional hardwood floors, which is great news for our forests. There is also less waste, as the engineered nature of this flooring option means that there should be no defective or cracked floor boards that need to be discarded.
