If you are considering changing or installing a new flooring, you are left with 2 options, solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. So which one would you choose?
At Terra Mater, we want you to make a smart choice.
6 Reasons Why You Should Choose Engineered Timber Flooring
- Smart Engineering
Engineered Timber Floor Boards are smartly designed to eliminate the common problem of expanding and contracting that results in bowing and cupping.
- Cost Effective
Engineered boards and prefinished, thus saving you cost on the process of sanding, staining and finishing to complete the job on a solid wood floor.
- Installation on Concrete Surface
Engineered floor boards can be directly installed on concrete slab if the moisture content permits. However, if the moisture content exceeds 5.5 percent, we recommend a waterproof membrane. We also recommend a self levelling compound if the deviation is + or – 3mm over a 3 meter radius. Alternative options include ply sheeting or slab grinding.
- Easy Installation
The installation process is not different from solid wood using glue and secret nail. Engineered boards are also equipped with a click mechanism that locks the boards together in place and allows them to float over a foam mat. Apartment owners are advised to install engineered floor boards on an acoustic membrane to reduce noise and comply with the regulations of body corporate.
- Same Look and Feel
Since engineered boards are made of real wood you won’t be able to tell the difference from real wood. You get the same finish, look and feel.
