The past 10 years has seen an explosion in the number and styles of wood flooring systems available to developers, designers and specifiers, with engineered wood emerging as a design favourite.
June 30th, 2016
The complexity and diversity in modern wood flooring options poses a challenge for designers in trying to stay across the ranges of benefits, features, pros and cons of this sector. Ease of installation, durability, multi-storey noise performance and above all beauty, are just some of the questions in the minds of both clients and specifiers.
Overwhelmingly though, it is engineered wood flooring, also called multi-layer wood flooring, that is being used in the majority of contemporary residential and commercial projects. This can be attributed to the dimensional stability, speed of installation, reliability and versatility of engineered wood.
Engineered wood components have become favoured over solid wood products across building trades and flooring products. Some of the specific advantages of Quick-Step engineered wood flooring over traditional solid flooring options include…
The Premium Floors range of Quick-Step engineered wood flooring offers designers the versatility to float or direct stick when installing.
Floating installations are less expensive and faster to install, and provide superior reduction of impact noise. While there is sometimes apprehension in specifying a floating installation, due to possible movement underfoot, the selection of Premium Floors’ Quiet-Step underlays actually results in a floating installation with a solid feel and reduced foot-fall noise.
