Engineered Wood Flooring in Singapore
Engineered wood flooring is also known as layered wood flooring, which might confuse many into thinking that it is ‘NOT’ real wood. While solid wood is made of a single piece of wood (as its name suggests), engineered wood is made of solid wood veneer and layered plywood base.
Engineered wood is made by layering the plywood in a criss-cross manner to provide better dimensional stability. As the plywood is laid and glued perpendicularly, movements between the boards are minimised, reducing the risk of over-expansion and contraction. This means engineered wood flooring is less likely to cup or warp when it naturally expands and contracts. This makes engineered wood flooring ideal for battling Singapore’s humid, tropical climate.
Why Choose Engineered Wood Flooring?
Engineered wood flooring can be difficult to tell apart from solid timber flooring once installed. Even though both types of wooden floors look like real wood in a home interior, they differ in many ways. Many individuals are unsure whether to choose natural hardwood floors or engineered wood floors. However, when it comes to having low-cost, long-lasting, and low-maintenance hardwood flooring, engineered wood flooring is the ideal option, especially when considering Singapore’s weather. Some of its benefits include:
With engineered wood flooring, you can experience the exquisite texture, feel, and look of real solid wood. Since only the top layer is made of luxury solid wood, this flooring option will not break the bank as much as solid wood flooring.
Engineered wood flooring has high dimensional stability. Its structural strength and stability prevent expansion and contraction due to temperature changes commonly experienced in Singapore. This reduces the possibilities of cupping and warping even when installed in spaces that attract high foot traffic, making engineered wood floors a practical investment.
