Engineered Flooring in Melbourne
Engineered timber flooring is comprised of 2 layers: a plywood or hardwood base covered with a veneer of real timber. This means increased durability, convenience and aesthetic choices at a lower price point than solid timber.
For engineered flooring in Melbourne, there is no better provider than Karma Flooring. With over 40 years of experience, we can help you choose the colour and style that works best with your space.
Why Choose Engineered Timber Flooring?
Melbourne’s unpredictable weather might be an inconvenience, but it can be damaging to solid timber flooring. When temperature and humidity fluctuate rapidly, solid timber is at risk of creaking, buckling or splitting, as it absorbs moisture much more readily than the plywood core of engineered flooring.
Engineered timber flooring also allows for a much wider range of colours, textures and designs than standard solid timber, due to the ability to select more wood types, as well as apply stains and finishes.
One of the big drawbacks to solid timber is the price. Engineered timber can be installed for 35% less than solid timber, at a minimum. This does depend on the style, finish, thickness of the veneer and other factors, so contact one of our flooring experts to talk through your options.
Finally, as many of our engineered timber flooring options are ‘floating floors,’ this can reduce the installation time to one day, depending on the project size. With no nails, glue, or drying time, we can have you walking on and enjoying your new floor in no time.
