Engineered Wood Flooring FAQ

What is engineered wood flooring?

Engineered wood flooring consists of multiple layers of wood. The top layer is a hardwood veneer, providing the desired wood species and finish, while the lower layers are typically made of plywood or high-density fibreboard.

This multi-layered construction offers enhanced stability and resistance to changes in temperature and humidity compared to solid hardwood flooring, as well as a lower price point.

How durable is engineered wood flooring?

Engineered wood floors are highly durable and suitable for high-moisture areas like kitchens and basements. The thickness of the top hardwood veneer layer plays a crucial role in determining the durability and the number of times the floor can be refinished.

Can engineered wood flooring be refinished?

Yes, engineered wood flooring can be refinished, provided the top veneer layer is sufficiently thick. Floors with a thicker hardwood veneer can often be sanded and refinished multiple times, extending their lifespan and enhancing their appearance.

Is engineered wood flooring compatible with underfloor heating systems?

Due to its inherent dimensional stability, engineered wood flooring is generally well-suited for use with underfloor heating systems. However, to ensure optimal performance, consult with the Dreamwood Flooring team for specific compatibility guidelines and installation instructions.

How do I maintain and clean engineered wood flooring?

Regular maintenance involves sweeping, dry mopping, or using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to remove dirt and debris. To keep the floors looking their best, promptly clean spills and use cleaning products recommended by the flooring manufacturer.

What is the typical lifespan of engineered wood flooring?

Engineered wood flooring can last 20 to 100 years with proper care and maintenance. The quality of the flooring, the veneer layer’s thickness, and the foot traffic level will influence its overall longevity.

You can count on Dreamwood Flooring to provide high-quality, long-lasting engineered solutions for your commercial space.

What are the environmental impacts of engineered wood flooring?

Engineered wood flooring generally requires less hardwood than solid wood flooring, making it a more sustainable option. Many manufacturers also use sustainably sourced wood and low-VOC (volatile organic compound) adhesives, further enhancing the environmental friendliness of their engineered wood flooring products.

What styles and finishes are available for engineered wood flooring?

Our engineered wood flooring in Auckland is available in a wide range of wood species, stains, and finishes, from matte to glossy, allowing you to find a style that complements the aesthetic of your space.

We offer a range of styles, including popular options like Black Walnut and Desert Oak.

How does the cost of engineered wood flooring compare to solid hardwood flooring?

In general, engineered wood flooring is less expensive than solid hardwood flooring in terms of material costs and installation expenses. However, premium engineered wood flooring options can be comparable in price to solid hardwood flooring.

Installation Process

1. Preparation of the Subfloor

The subfloor must be clean, dry, and level. We correct all irregularities before installation.

2. Acclimatisation

The engineered wood should be acclimated to the room’s temperature and humidity where it will be installed, which usually takes at least a few days.

3. Layout Planning

We plan the layout to ensure the rows are straight and joints are staggered.

4. Installation Method

Next, we determine the appropriate installation method: glued down, nailed, or floated when installed. Each method requires specific preparations and techniques.

5. Cutting and Fitting

We cut the boards to fit the room dimensions and around obstacles like vents or corners.

6. Finishing Touches

We install baseboards, thresholds, transitions, and other finishing touches to complete the installation.
