Engineered Wood Floor Fitting in Scotland and within the UK
We at Unique Bespoke Wood can see the reasons why you choose engineered flooring for your premises in Scotland. That type of wood flooring has many advantages to offer – it has the beauty of real wood timber, but it is engineered and extremely stable. Engineered wood flooring is easier to maintain than solid hardwood and it's manufactured to last you decades, made with this special method of crisscrossed glued together layers of lumber and plywood for best durability and resistance to impact of conditions, that may damage solid wood flooring. Last but not least, engineered wood flooring is perfect for lower level rooms, basement flats since it is damp resistant and can be installed over concrete subfloor or all types of underfloor heating systems.
Engineered wood floor offers quicker and easier way to get a new floor and comes with a durable factory-applied finish, which will guarantee long lasting power and simple maintenance. However, engineered flooring installation should be done right or you will end up with warping, loose planks, quicker worn.
When subfloor is environmentally and structurally acceptable, the fitting procedure can start.
For nailing our engineered planks, subfloor should be plywood since it prevent floor movement and squeaks. Moisture barrier underlay may be applied before if needed.
In addition, as wood is natural product, colors and shades may vary from plank to plank, but don't worry, when variations are consistently distributed across the perimeter it will give unique appearance to your flooring.
The floor planks are tongue-and-groove style, so they can be nailed and fixed with secret nails or glued down. We offer you high quality adhesive, the different types available, depends on subfloor, or underfloor heating systems.
Floating installation is another option. It consist of gluing or clicking together planks (if the flooring has click lock system) to each other but not to the subfloor. This method is great for uneven or subfloor with high moisture level.
