Engineered timber flooring in Melbourne

Engineered timber flooring is composed of a top layer of hardwood timber with a thickness of 3 to 4 mm along with an underlying layer of plywood that provides cushioning and moisture resistance to the top layer.

This flooring type is a popular choice for being durable, cost-effective, and allows you to feel all the natural variation, knots, and gum veins of timber floorboards. Along with that, it’s more resistant to humidity and fluctuating temperatures than solid wood flooring and may be installed quickly, with the right tools and equipment. With a wide range of color and texture options, it is definitely easier to maintain and clean than solid hardwood flooring. Our experts are always on hand to help you choose the right product for your residential or commercial floors in Melbourne.

Additionally, engineered timber flooring has a minimal amount of VOCs, making them the healthiest flooring solution. However, compared to other choices, they are not waterproof, leading to possible accidents, and be extra careful when wiping up spills to protect your luxurious floors.

Solid timber flooring

Solid timber flooring comprises floorboards made of real trees and is available in both hardwood and non-hardwood. Allowing you to pick your favorite type.

Hardwood floors are made from slow-growing trees like Spotted Gum, Blackbutt, and Ironbark, while non-hardwood floors are produced from fast-growing trees like Cypress Pine, Birch, and Victoria Ash.

Hardwood timber is more expensive and durable than non-hardwood timber, which is undoubtedly more affordable, eco-friendly, and has a more extensive range of options to choose from. When selecting solid timber flooring solutions, it is crucial to consider pre-finished or raw products. Raw timber floors need to be finished after installation with a coating substance, which allows you to choose the color and texture of your floors.

However, it’s good to know that it may take up to six full weeks for the seasoning process. Pre-finished timber floors are sanded, treated, and sealed in the manufacturing process, providing faster installation and increased durability.

Although more expensive than other options, solid timber flooring is without a doubt a luxurious and durable option. With its easy-to-clean and suitable methods for high-traffic surfaces, many people choose this.

However, it may be unstable in rapidly changing climates within Melbourne, and adequate spaces must be left between floorboards during installation to prevent any form of cracking or buckling.

Bamboo flooring

Bamboo flooring products are made from bamboo plants and are resistant to stains and fading. They are more affordable, easier, and cheaper to install than timber floorboards. So, if you’re looking for an eco-friendly flooring solution, bamboo floorboards are the best option because bamboo grows abundantly and rapidly.

When it comes to choosing bamboo flooring, there are two main types to choose from: engineered bamboo and solid bamboo. Engineered bamboo consists of several layers of plywood with a layer of bamboo on top. Solid bamboo has the natural and original look of the bamboo plants.
