Timber flooring FAQs
What is engineered timber flooring?
Engineered timber flooring (also known as engineered hardwood flooring) is a magnificent product, and a great alternative to laminate and solid timber flooring. Unlike the synthetic components in laminate flooring, engineered timber has a natural, hardwood veneer finish. The middle and bottom layers of each plank is made of plywood, with each plank being a little bit thicker than laminate.
How much is engineered timber flooring?
Engineered timber flooring products vary in cost. Pricing is mainly driven by the thickness, materials and finishes. Parry’s timber flooring options range from as little as $75.90m2 for our entry level options. Visit our Special offers page for our timber flooring deals and pricings.
What are the differences between solid timber and engineered wood?
Solid timber flooring is made of complete, single pieces of timber. Each plank is unique in look and characteristics to the trees that they have been sourced from. While the durability of hardwood makes it an attractive option, the slow-growing nature of these trees means that this type of flooring can be an expensive option.
Engineered timber flooring retains the look of solid timber flooring while being more affordable for budget-conscious owners. It features a layer of genuine hardwood, such as Blackbutt, Jarrah and Spotted Gum, over layers of sturdy plywood, topped with a protective finish. Just like solid timber flooring, any scuffs or scratches on engineered timber flooring can be sanded down and refinished.
How to clean timber floors?
You can use soft brooms (or the right vacuum attachment) to pick up any dirt or dust on your timber floors without scratching them. Mopping up spills as soon as they happen is important, as any excess moisture that soaks into the seams between your hardwood planks can cause warping or damage. For the same reason, avoid mopping your floor with too much water – use a mop that retains less water and make sure you wring it out thoroughly. Timber floors cannot be steam cleaned, and should only be sanded and refinished by professionals.
