This engineered white oak is 190mm wide and is finished in a UV matt lacquer. The boards are 14mm thick, T &G and bevelled. The Character/Rustic grade means that it can have a medium colour variation and large knots. It can also have small cracks which will be filled.
This floor has a brushed surface which gives the floor an added texture and a more natural appearance. This white oak has been smoked to give it a dark brown colour.
Engineered flooring is the perfect combination of practicality and authenticity. Constructed in layers, generally made from birch plywood, engineered flooring has a top layer veneer made from solid wood.
It's these layers underneath which provide engineered flooring with a greater structural stability than solid wood floors. This means that it's not as prone to shrinking or warping with changes in environmental conditions.
Due to this stability, it is possible for engineered floors to be installed using any fitting method, including nail, glue down and float.
It also allows for engineered flooring to be installed above underfloor heating, whereas solid wood flooring (in most cases) cannot.
The solid wood veneer generally ranges from 3-6mm in thickness and is suitable for sanding.
Sanding can remove between 0.5 to 1mm of wood per sanding. A thicker wear layer means your floor can be sanded and refinished more often, increasing the lifespan of the floor.
