Engineered Flooring: Hardwood Without the Drawbacks
It’s said by estate agents that hardwood flooring helps homes sell twice as quick. Even for those of us just looking to spruce the place up a bit, that stat still speaks to the appeal of solid wood flooring.
Wood flooring in Glasgow has a long history: we've used it in our houses for centuries. It remains a popular option today. Throughout, it's remained the traditional choice thanks to its aesthetic appeal and practical benefits. A wooden floor lends an instant elegant look to a room – it makes for a fantastic choice if you’re redecorating.
Looking for Wooden Flooring in Glasgow?
We all know where wooden flooring comes from – unlike money, it does grow on trees. In its past life, one of wood’s jobs was to transport the tree’s food and water. That's why timber reacts to humidity and moisture by shrinking and expanding. This limits where you can install solid wood flooring. Since the hardwood component of engineered flooring is a layer, it isn’t as susceptible to these factors. That means it can be used much more widely.
Underfloor heating has become a popular feature in many modern homes. Solid flooring isn’t as suitable for this because wood doesn’t go well with extreme temperatures, but you don’t have to do without the beauty of wooden flooring in Glasgow, even with the Scottish weather. As engineered flooring is much more stable, it can be used with underfloor heating.
The Perfect Wood Flooring Solution
Unlike laminate or vinyl, engineered flooring doesn’t use a photographic reproduction to give a wood effect. The top layer really is hardwood – and you can get engineered flooring in nearly any species you could want. That makes it nearly indistinguishable from solid wood flooring: visitors won’t have a clue unless you let on, and the resale value of engineered flooring is the same as a solid wood floor.
