Solid or Engineered Wooden Flooring Supply & Fit
Examples of solid wood flooring include the likes of mahogany, teak, walnut, oak, ash, birch and maple. The thing that each of these woods have in common is that they all come from deciduous trees. That’s to say, from trees that shed their leaves each autumn. A more expensive option than softwood, there’s no getting away from the fact that most, but not all hardwoods are more durable, as well as generally speaking, more sought after than softwoods. The reason that hardwoods are more expensive than softwoods is largely down to the simple economics of supply and demand: a hardwood tree can take decades to grow, while softwood trees grow relatively quickly.
Generally speaking, a tougher wood type than softwood, solid hardwoods are ideal for use in timber flooring because they will stand up to the harsh wear and tear that life under foot throws at them and will last (more than) a lifetime in most instances. Add to all of this the fact that hardwoods are more fire resistant than softwoods and you soon start to see the appeal.
Engineered wood Flooring
When it comes to wood flooring, in addition to the option of softwood or hardwood, there is also the possibility of investing in engineered wood flooring. Engineered flooring is made up of bonding a number of layers of ply or high density fibreboard (HDF) to create a core board, which effectively makes up the inner part of a “sandwich” which is then topped with a solid wood lamella or top layer. These core boards are made by bonding layers of ply together or by introducing a thick layer of HDF, which is laid in different directions to create a strong, stable base for the solid wood top layer, which is commonly made of oak, larch or walnut.
Once you’ve decided to opt for a wooden floor, you’ll be faced with (amongst many other exciting decisions), the choice between hardwood, softwood and engineered wood. Which option will work best for your project will depend upon many things, such as your budget, the relative humidity and temperature fluctuations in your room as well as the natural colour of wood you’re looking for. While personal taste and preference will heavily influence the decision you make, it’s really important that you make the right choice, and with this in mind, you should never fear asking for advice from your wood flooring supplier if you’re in any doubt whatsoever.

Get your Floor fitted the right way
We offer a full survey service from our flooring experts.
The survey will outline all wood flooring fitting costs based on:
- The state of the subfloor
- If any furniture needs to be moved
- The state of any skirting boards and architraves
- If an old carpet has to be removed
- The levels of humidity and moisture
Firstly, the expert floor fitter will monitor the moisture and humidity levels in the intended room with a special reader. Any readings must be reported back to the fitter as they form part of your terms of business with them. Once confirmed and the right conditions have been established, the fitter can begin their work fitting your engineered wooden flooring.
Installing Your Wood Floor
Engineered Wood flooring or solid wood flooring installations are a straightforward process, as long as recommendations are adhered to. As your floor fitting expert will tell you, it’s of the utmost importance that you acclimatise a solid wood floor in the rooms where it will be laid for at least 10 days. Engineered wood flooring is much less at 2/3 days acclimitisation.
One of the reasons for doing this is because solid wood floors expand and contract during fluctuating temperature changes. This could be anything from switching on the central heating to a change in the seasons. There have been numerous cases where this has happened, even to the extent where the floor has expanded so much that it’s pushed a brick wall down.
This is why we suggest wood flooring fitters that have years of experience. Their work is continually monitored for quality, customer service, reliability and professionalism. All fitting prices they quote will include the trimming of all doors, architraves and cutting the skirting board so that the floor can be fitted underneath. The fitter’s specialist equipment will ultimately save you time and money in the long run and minimise on mess.
Once the above steps have been completed, the fitter will be sure the sub floor is sound and acceptable for a wooden floor. They will also be able to tell you the square metres required and any other pre-preparation required for a trouble free wood floor installation. When fully satisfied, the fitter will fit your wood floor.
