Wood Flooring (engineered)
Engineered flooring offers often the most economical and ecological alternative to 'solid' wood flooring. It's construction includes a hard wood top that can be renovated up to three times and due to it's softwood backing keeps movement down to a minimum. These floors are also suitable over Underfloor Heating providing manufacturers guidelines are observed.
Choosing an engineered floor over a solid wood floor also has a positive effect on the environment as the softwood backing is manufactured from fast growing species of trees that can be sustained a lot quicker than the slower growing hardwood trees.
Here at Floorcraft(Reading) we use Kahrs and Ted Todd & Sons engineered floors which we consider to be the best engineered manufacturers available.
Solid Wood Flooring
Solid wood flooring is the floor that you should only buy once, there are many more variables involved in the planning, fitting and maintenance but properly installed there is little that beats the look of solid timber
Available in both pre and un-finished the choices of floor finish are yours. We can stain the floor to the colour of your choice, Oil the floor for a more natural appearance or use water based polyurethane sealants which make maintenance easy.
