Advantages of Engineered Wood

As real as wood

Engineered wood floors are the best of both worlds. The top layer of an engineered wood floor is 6 to 8 mm of real wood veneer. This makes every plank of the floor as unique as a solid wood floor. This makes engineered wood floors real wood floors.

Lasts a lifetime

An engineered wood floor will last from 20 to 100 years, depending on the thickness of the top veneer. The best-engineered wood floors available will last very long and perform as well as a solid wood floor.

Sustainable and Eco-Friendly

Sustainability is soon becoming the keyword of any product we consume. Engineered wood floors are sustainable as exotic trees can now make a whole lot more floors with a 6mm veneer on top of a structurally stable engineered wooden plank, versus producing a few planks of solid wood floor.

Easy Installation

Engineered floors use an advanced tongue-and-groove system that locks them in place. These floors (usually called floating floors) can be placed over a cork or other suitable underlayment or directly over an older floor making installation a simple and quick process.

High-performance floors

Because engineered wood is man-made, it is designed to meet application-specific performance requirements. For instance engineered wooden floors for heavy usage areas such as reception, foyer, corridors etc are designed for long term durability.


Engineered wood floors are versatile and available in a wide variety of thicknesses, sizes, grades, and exposure durability classifications, making the products ideal for use in unlimited construction, industrial and home project application.


Engineered wooden floors are designed and manufactured to maximize the natural strength and stiffness characteristics of wood. The floors are very stable and some offer greater structural strength than typical wooden floors.
