Solid wood is as it sounds, a solid piece of wood shaped into a flooring length. Solid wood flooring comes in a range of widths, depths and lengths usually cut to suit the tree they are being cut from. As a result these pieces can differ slightly and are random in design.
The overall look you can expect to achieve with sold wood flooring is a very natural, none perfect, wood floor. Perfect for an old cottage or a barn conversion but equally at home in any domestic environment.
Engineered wood Flooring
The pinnacle of wood flooring this is the best of both worlds, combining the beautiful natural effects of solid wood and the precise manufacturing of laminate Flooring.
Engineered wood floors are made up of several layers of a ply or composite base with a solid wood topper or veneer covered with a protective finish such as natural vegetable oil or a hardened lacquer. Thanks to the careful selection of raw material and a perfect control of the moisture content of the wood during the manufacturing process, engineered wood floors guarantee optimum stability and durability.
