If you’re looking for a timber floor, but your budget won’t stretch for it, consider a laminate floor with a timber look. With today’s technologies, laminate floors are made to look like exactly like real timber and they offer the same stain, the same graining – and even the same texture.
The clicking and locking mechanism in contemporary laminate floor boards makes for a hassle-free installation process. It’s a relatively fast and easy flooring product to install, making it a great option for DIY fitouts.
An engineered board comprises of two or more layers of wood, or more commonly wood and plywood, bonded together. This forms a far more stable plank, less prone to gapping, cupping or crowning under changes in temperature or humidity. The top or 'wear' layer of the plank is often of a similar depth to that of a solid board above the tongue providing an equal sandable surface.
Because of their stability engineered boards may be longer and wider than solid planks and they can be laid 'floating', increasing the ease of repair and reducing the time and cost of installation, making it great for DIY fitouts
