When you opt for engineered timber flooring Melbourne, you’ll be left with a stunning finished product that is designed to last. But how will your beautiful new floors stand up to the harsh Australia conditions and your busy lifestyle? If you’re worried that your new engineered floorboards won’t fit in, we’re here to put your mind at ease. Let’s take a closer look at why engineered timber remains a popular choice for Australian homes.
Moisture and heat resistant
One of the issues that Australian homeowners have to consider with their new flooring is the hot and humid conditions in many parts of the country. While some flooring choices work well in temperate climates, others can’t take the heat – literally. Luckily, engineered timber is perfectly suited to Australian conditions. It’s moisture resistant which makes it perfect for coping with humidity and, unlike solid timber, engineered floorboards aren’t as prone to cracking and warping. Engineered timber is also less prone to significant expanding and contracting – perfect in Australia where we often get extreme temperatures.
Durable and long-lasting
When it comes to flooring for your Australian home, you want a material that is designed to last. Engineered timber is constructed from several layers which makes it highly stable when used for flooring. Because the top layer is genuine hardwood, you also get the benefit of the hard-wearing, long-lasting properties of hardwood without the expense of solid wood floorboards. When properly cared for, your engineered floors are designed to last for generations. Just remember to invest in good quality engineered timber – you want the top layer of hardwood to be thick enough to allow for the floors to be sanded back and polished every few years.
It’s not just about the durability of your floors – you also want to achieve the right look. Engineered timber floors offer a stunning aesthetic to Australian homes and offer the unique character of genuine hardwood which provides a sense of warmth to the home. The best thing about engineered timber is you can choose from a range of colours and finishes for the perfect fit. Timber floorboards are also versatile and will continue to adapt to your changing style over the years.
