                             Advantages Of Pre Engineered Wood Flooring
                                               By Opal Victoria



   For starters, engineered wood flooring tends to be stronger than regular solid hardwood flooring. It
can also be installed over just about anything - concrete slab, existing wood floors, ceramic tile, etc.
This certainly makes it attractive to someone looking to put in a wood floor with as little trouble as
possible.

New advances have made it possible to put real wood as the top layer of each engineered plank. This
makes engineered flooring almost indistinguishable from traditional solid wood flooring. This also
means less wood is required for each plank. And even better, the finishes used by the factory are
generally more durable than a finish you would apply yourself if you were installing solid plank flooring.


Since the finishes are applied at the factory, that means you can avoid all the mess, extra time and
vapors associated with applying your own finish. You also don't have to worry about sanding or taping
plastic sheets up all over your house. With engineered wood flooring, you can walk on it as soon as it
is installed. There is no waiting period, it's instant gratification. And you don't have to stain it!

The factory also puts multiple coats of finish on each wood plank which dries to a much harder
protective layer than a finish you would apply yourself. This added protection means less maintenance
for you over the years. It also means engineered floors are more scratch resistant than solid flooring. If
you have kids or pets, engineered wood flooring is likely your best investment. It will save you time up
front and over the life of the floor.

Engineered flooring offers strength, ease of use, and looks that rival solid wood flooring. In many cases
the cost of engineered flooring is comparable to that of real plank wood. You can't ask for anything
better.

                               The Range of Engineered Wood Flooring
                                            By Derek Rogers



Wood flooring started out as three quarter inch thick wood, unfinished. Now we have plenty of options
in the wood flooring department, one of the most common being used today is called engineered wood
flooring.

 The flooring today has been pre-cut, doesn't require finishing and has a decreased thickness. The
thickness of the engineered wood allows it to be bent into place and will then click into place with a little
glue to hold it there.

 The benefits of using this engineered wood flooring are plentiful and we will look at those before we
example the range of flooring you have to choose from.

 The engineered wood flooring lasts longer than regular wood flooring used for more than a century.
We have already mentioned that it comes finished, so rather than having to stripe the wood and then
place a lacquer on it you don't have to be concerned. The wood is treated in the shop, finished, and
ready to bend with a rubber like quality.

The last two advantages to using this flooring are the ease of use and not to mention the quickness.

 As we mentioned above you just need to snap it into place and then make sure there is a little glue to
keep it securely in place.

 This method of 'snapping in place' is easier and you could potentially have every floor in your home
finished with wood flooring in one day due to its very quick installation.

There is a large range of products in the engineered wood flooring category.

 To start off you have beech rustic wood flooring. This is a mild colour, with a natural wood
appearance.

 There are several types of oak flooring available as well. Oak is by far the most popular flooring used
in a home.

You have different widths as well as different grains with oak to choose from.

Boen oak is one choice that has a bit of a darker finish than the natural oak.

Walnut is the other choice. This is going to be one of the darker grains available in wood flooring.
While there may be a little light wood throughout it is mostly a black walnut.

You can also buy oil, lacquered, or brushed oak offering a bit of a darker appearance for the wood.

 One last benefit to mention regarding the engineered wood flooring is the cost. The cost of the flooring
can range anything from £27.95 up to £132, but this depends on how you are going to purchase it. If
you are buying the flooring per square meter you will pay less than the per pack price.



                                                                                                           Page 2

 The Boen Oak tends to be the most expensive option in the range of flooring that you have, where as
the Natural finish Oak will be the least expensive.

 The cost is dependent on the type of wood and the finish you are looking for. With the range of
different types of engineered wood flooring, you can find just about anything you need.
