Engineered wood flooring is an excellent choice for your home, being very adaptable to the floor beneath, and pre-finished with various surfaces available. It is a type of hardwood flooring and quite distinct from laminate flooring.

We stock both types of flooring at Chesterton Carpets and can guide you regarding the differences between the two and performance of the floors in relation to your requirements.
What is engineered wood flooring?
Engineered wood flooring is made up of layers of softwood with a layer of hardwood veneer affixed to the top. Where it lacks the authenticity of the solid wood option, it gains in being a little more durable to the extent that it can usually even be laid over concrete, and is less prone to movement caused by humidity.
Solid wood flooring in the showroom
Chesterton Carpets has a large stock of solid wood flooring in the showroom illustrating the beauty and warmth such a floor lends a space. The characteristics of solid wood flooring vary with the type of wood used.
