The real wood surface veneer layer is available in many different designs and finishes, and is also available in many different thicknesses ranging from 0.5mm up to 6mm. A typical veneer being 3.6mm that can be sanded 4/5 times. During the manufacturing process, the layers of real timber run in different directions meaning it is more dimensionally stable than solid wood, but identical to solid wooden flooring in appearance.Engineered wood flooring is perfect for those areas of the house where solid wood flooring may not be suitable, such as basements, conservatories or over under-floor heating.

LAMINATE

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is a man made product, designed to replicate wooden floors and also other floor coverings such as wood and stone tile . Laminate floors are very durable due to the layers of the board being made to be as strong and as dense as possible, so it can perform as a very hardwearing floor.

 

The choice to use laminate in your home or business is entirely personal and the quality and cost can vary massively but as with most things in life; you get what you pay for.

 

How is laminate flooring made? We are asked this question every day and the answer is simple. Laminate flooring is a photo! Yes that’s correct, the boards with their grain and colour variations are photos. The photo is a high quality photographic image of wood. This is placed onto a HDF core board and is coated with a tough melamine wear layer. It is this wear layer which makes laminate flooring extremely hardwearing and much less liable to scratch than a real wood finish and makes laminate ideal for those with a busy homes and lifestyles.

 

Laminate flooring is getting more and more realistic every year and sometimes it’s hard to tell it apart from real wood flooring even for us professionals! Laminate flooring is ideal for use in all rooms of the home or office.
