The top benefits of engineered wood flooring

Posted in By Solidwood Company

Wood flooring is the ideal solution for use in both domestic and commercial environments thanks to its incredible durability and aesthetic appearance. The Solid Wood Flooring Company manufactures and supplies a wide range of high-quality FSC Certified hardwood flooring and free samples can be found here!

Below we explore the benefits of this type of flooring.

Dark Engineered Oak Flooring 


One of the main benefits of wood flooring is its durability. The Solid Wood Flooring Company manufactures unique hardwood flooring with the best-managed forest timber products. It took The Solid Wood Flooring Company three years to complete the research and development of the first 10 lines of solid wood and engineered floors which became the top-quality engineered flooring you can now see on the website.


Low maintenance 

Carpets are susceptible to spilt drinks, rips, tears and general wear and tear due to everyday activities. This means that carpeted areas will require maintenance every 5-10 years in order for it to still look pristine. Solid wood flooring on the other hand can be easily wiped and cleaned. Furthermore, any damage that occurs to the floor can be dealt with by refining and replacing individual boards, something you can’t do with carpet!

The best way to clean a wood floor is to use our handy kits. Take a look here.

Oiled oak flooring 


Wood is a renewable, natural resource that grows in abundance across the world and is the only renewable choice of building material for flooring. At The Solid Wood Flooring Company, our Oak is sourced from responsibly managed sources. These programmes support replanting and sustainable forestry.  Many of these forests are managed by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or PEFC to ensure the forests are managed responsibly.


Wood flooring adds value to your home

Another popular benefit of installing wood flooring into your home is the increase in value that it provides. A recent survey by the National Wood Flooring Association concluded that that 80% of estate agents agreed that installing wood flooring increases a home’s value by 1%-10%.
