What is Oak Engineered Wood Flooring?
Engineered wood flooring is a layered composite alternative to hardwood flooring, consisting of a top layer (or ‘lamella’) of the chosen hardwood, which is then backed by several layers of high-quality plywood, which provides additional strength and flexibility to the plank.
For our Heritage collection, we start with our usual lamella of European oak, which we precision-cut and brush to accentuate the natural beauty of its grain. Then, our specialist finishing team in Yorkshire, harnessing long-standing generational techniques, will seal the timber’s surface using modern UV technology. This helps achieve a finish that is textured and invitingly tactile, as well as durable and easy to maintain.
3 Reasons to Choose Our Heritage Oak Flooring
Truly Sustainable Timber
Unlike most timber distribution for wood flooring, our European oak is sourced from managed forests. The difference to standard, commercial logging rests in how the woodlands are looked after. Each sapling is tended during every stage of its growth cycle to ensure it is healthy, which will improve yield and reduce wastage, as well as inhibit the spread of infections.
Managed forests also care for the surrounding environment too, maintaining local ecosystems and livelihood in a way that most logging sites do not. We are proud to be partnered with such forward-thinking groups, striving for sustainability across the woodworking industry.
OUR ECO FOCUS
Nowhere Is Off Limits
Our Heritage Engineered Wood Floors, thanks in part to the plywood they are backed with, can be laid pretty much anywhere in your house. This includes where modern underfloor heating systems are already in place, as the blocks themselves are resilient to the natural swelling that occurs in extreme temperatures or humidity.
With our range of engineered wood floors, you never have to second guess your vision. If you want wood floors in a room, we can put them there without hassle.
Engineered hardwood floors are made to last, from their individual components to their overall design. With only a small amount of maintenance required, your new wood floors will remain a welcome and attractive addition to your home.
If we delve a little deeper into the craftsmanship of our Heritage range, we will see the tongue and groove fittings that ensure a level and sturdy lay.
