Offering greater stability and resistance to heat and moisture than natural wood flooring, engineered wood flooring is one of the most popular choices today and is available from ESB Flooring in Herringbone, Chevron, and Versailles patterns. Constructed using three layers of wood that are bonded together with adhesive under extremely high pressure, engineered wood flooring has a strong base layer, a softer middle layer, and a solid wood veneer top layer that is available in numerous styles, colours, and finishes. At ESB Flooring, we recommend the technologically advanced and highly efficient joint mechanism click system, which is not only easier to install, but also makes the flooring much more stable for movement. Because of its ability to withstand movement and temperature changes, engineered wood flooring is more suitable for rooms with underfloor heating and varying conditions than solid wood flooring is (link to Solid Wood Flooring Page). Engineered wood flooring typically has a 3 to 6mm top layer which, despite the myth that thicker is always better, is more than enough thickness to ensure your flooring lasts 30 to 40 years, as each sanding only takes off about 0.3mm, and sanding is unusually only performed every 7 to 10 years. For this reason, ESB Flooring pays closer attention to the stability of the floorboards and the way the manufacturer has engineered them, to ensure you receive value for your investment. Regardless of your style preference and whether you seek oak engineered flooring, walnut engineered flooring, or anything in between, in shades of light brown, trendy grey, or dark wood, the extensive ESB Flooring selection of engineered wood caters to any residential and commercial project need.
