Enginnered Timber

Engineered Timber

Engineered solid timber is a versatile alternative to solid timber. Unlike solid timber, which is one piece of wood milled from a tree, engineered timber flooring is actually made of a core of hardwood or plywood with a layer of solid timber veneer affixed to the top surface, showing all the natural beauty of the selected wood species. These bonded layers bond create a board with enhanced structural integrity. It’s more resistant to moisture and heat compared to solid hardwood.

The Benefits of Engineered Floor

The superior strength and stability of engineered solid timber floors makes them less likely to expand or contract, meaning they’re less susceptible to changes in temperatures and humidity.

Both solid and engineered hardwood floors are designed for beauty and durability. Their tough surface can stand up to active homes. However, both solid and engineered hardwood flooring have different performance attributes.
Solid wood flooring is permanently nailed to the subfloor. Because of expansion and contraction issues, installers will normally leave a gap between the wall and the floor to accommodate swelling. This type of flooring should only be installed in parts of the home above grade and only over plywood, wood or oriented strand board subfloors.
Engineered floors have enhanced stability, which provides slightly more resistance to everyday wear- and-tear and also to buckling or rippling. Solid hardwood floors are more prone to shrinking or expanding based on humidity levels.
Engineered wood floors can be more resistant to moisture and offer a bit more stability than solid hardwood. While no wood product can tolerate water laying on it, the increased moisture levels over concrete aren't a problem for most engineered wood floors. Unlike solid hardwood, engineered hardwood can go over concrete under the right conditions.

WildOak (French Oak)

WildOak logs are selected from Tronçais (a French National forest), grown in the Allier region in deep rich loamy soils. These excellent growing conditions produce very rapid growth with minimal lateral expansion resulting in an extremely tight grain.
Harvesting French Oak from these regions is vital to ensure a high tannin content that is contained in the wood. This makes French Oak the best timber for ageing, fuming and applying the latest reactive stains as they react with the tannin producing amazing unique colours that simple stains cannot achieve.
