Engineered wood is a type of wood product that is manufactured to create a composite material whose properties are superior to genuine timber. This type of wood is often used in the construction industry for applications such as flooring, furniture, and cabinetry.
One of the main advantages of engineered wood is its strength and durability. It is able to withstand greater loads and pressures than natural wood, making it ideal for use in high-traffic areas or areas subject to extreme weather conditions, hot and cold. Additionally, engineered wood is less likely to warp, twist, or shrink over time, which can be a common problem with natural wood.
Another benefit of engineered wood is its versatility as it can be manufactured in a wide range of colours, textures and finishes. This allows for greater design flexibility, as engineered wood can be made to mimic the look of natural wood or even other materials such as stone or marble.
In terms of sustainability, engineered wood can be a more eco-friendly option than natural wood. Because it is made from a mixture of fibres and binding agents, engineered wood can be manufactured using wood that would otherwise be considered waste or unusable. This means that less wood needs to be harvested from forests, which can help to reduce the environmental impact of wood products.
When it comes to timber flooring, engineered wood can be a great option. It’s as impressive as genuine hardwood floors with the additional benefits of improved durability, versatility and sustainability.
