Engineered Wood is fitted as a floating floor on either foam membrane or compressed fibre boards, exactly the same as laminate flooring. After installation the appearance it is the same as solid wood floor. The difference is that a timber veneer layer is glued onto a base of three core ply. The three core ply, commonly known as multi-ply gives the engineered board stability as it expands and contracts.
Most timber species are available in engineered board format and in a wide range of stains and finishes from high shine lacquer to brushed and oiled.
Some engineered boards are available in a glueless click together format, others require gluing which is a longer install needing clamps to hold the boards together as the glue hardens.
NJRflooring is happy to supply / install engineered board flooring. If you are looking for a solid wood floor installation, parquet flooring or wood floor renovation re-lacquer I recommend Floorcraft NE
