Floorrich Engineered Wood also known as man-made wood, is a type of flooring that has been designed and built using scientific principles. These products are engineered to precise design specifications which are tested to meet national or international standards. Engineered wood products are used in a variety of applications, from home construction to commercial buildings.

What is it made of?

Made up of multiple layers, the plys are cross layered, then glued and pressed together to form a really strong bond. The top layer is made from real hardwood. It is then bonded to the top of the core board. The second component of engineered flooring is the core board. This provides the base layer that the decorative layer is bonded to. The core board is very important. It provides strength and stability to the overall floor. The core is made from materials that are considered more stable than solid wood flooring when exposed to changes in moisture and heat.

Advantages of Floorrich Engineered Wood

  • High Durability

Floorrich Engineered Wood is known to be strong as it is made up of multiple layers of ply. The top layer is solid wood. This construction means engineered wood boards can withstand high-trafficked environments in residential and commercial properties.

  • It does not expand

Compared to solid wood, engineered wood flooring doesn’t easily expand and contract. Its expert construction allows for this feature to happen. Areas in the house that experience moisture and temperature fluctuations such as kitchens would benefit from engineered wood.

  • Affordable

When compared to other hardwood flooring, Floorrich Engineered Wood is more cost effective. 

  • Less Maintenance

Engineered floors are generally easy to care for. Regular vacuuming and light sweeping are all you need to do. You can also wipe up any spills or leaks immediately.
