Engineered Flooring: The Pinnacle of Flooring Praise

Posted on August 4, 2023


Why Engineered Flooring is Garnering So Much Praise

Engineered flooring has been declared the best option by far for being used with underfloor heating. Ordinary wooden floors are not ideal for use with underfloor heating because changing temperatures result in the contraction and expansion of the wood. Engineered floorboards, on the other hand, are designed to have a much greater degree of strength and stability. The planks are much less likely to contract or expand when exposed to different temperatures. Thus, they are ideal for those wanting to install underfloor heating, mainly if they are in the process of remodeling or undertaking wood floor repairs of some kind. One of the reasons for the difference in engineered floorboards compared to standard wood flooring is the amount of underlay used. While it is traditional to use a lot of underlays when installing wooden floors to cut down on sound traveling as well as to assist in insulation and help make a more even surface on the floor, underfloor heating needs to have a thinner amount of underlay to make the heat circulate better in the room. Changing the temperature upwards or downwards at a slower rate has also been discovered to prevent the wood flooring from contracting and expanding to its detriment. Engineered flooring comes in various wood styles, including oak, ash, cherry, walnut, and maple.
