Solid wood flooring is made from a solid piece of timber, milled into a plank and dried. Traditional in style, solid wood has been used in flooring for hundreds of years. It’s a natural option that’s durable and hardwearing. Solid wooden flooring is ideal for a busy family home. Should scratches or dents occur, it can easily be refinished to restore its former glory. But, as natural wood tends to contract and expand with sudden changes in humidity, solid wood flooring should not be laid in basements, conservatories or in areas with under-floor heating system.
Engineered wooden floors consist of several layers of real timber glued together under high pressures to create one plank. The layers of wood run in different directions, resulting in an extremely sturdy floorboard.
Engineered wood flooring has all the beauty of solid wood with the benefit of being more stable. This makes engineered wood flooring suitable in areas where solid wood is not. It can be laid as a floating floor, where sub-floors are not available. And it is perfect for flats as it can be sound-proofed with underlay. Engineered wooden flooring is simple to install and easy to remove.

Solid wood floorboards range from 14mm to 25mm in thickness. A 14mm board is usually adequate for an average family home. The boards are fitted together and nailed or stuck down over a sub-floor which has to be level and sound.
