PREFINISHED ENGINEERED TIMBER FLOORING
If the flooring in your home is beginning to show signs of wear, you may want to consider either a complete flooring renovation or restoration. By doing this, you may restore the new-looking appearance of your flooring and even raise the value of your home, but which kind of flooring should you use? There are many reasons to think about prefinished engineered Australian timber flooring for your Perth home and this can be a great decision.
- During installation, you won’t have to leave your house
- There isn’t a mess at all upon installing it
- The materials used in manufacturing won’t smell in your house
- You can use your floor on the same day
- Requires less maintenance
- More moisture resistant
A floorboard that has been prepared, coated, and sealed in a factory rather than during installation is referred to as a prefinished timber floor. Acclimatizing solid wood flooring to their surroundings is necessary to prevent the wood from expanding and contracting.
You’ll need to leave your house for up to a week while the floor is sanded, polished, and sealed in addition to the lengthy wait for your floor to acclimate. Prefinished timber flooring might be an excellent choice if you want a quick and easy flooring installation in your home.
From the collection of various Australian timber species such as Jarrah, NSW Blackbutt and Spotted Gum, engineered timber floors ARE REAL TIMBER floors, that have an extra supportive layer that offers many advantages aside from what genuine timber flooring entails. Engineered timber flooring consists of a 3mm – 6mm real hardwood timber veneer, pre-laminated to an engineered backing board (Plywood) which forms the tongue and groove. They are commonly pre-finished on a factory coating line, with 7 – 9 thin layers of coating. The final coat often includes a hardening additive (Aluminium Oxide) to increase the durability of the finished product. This hardening additive makes engineered timber flooring very durable and resistant to movement.
As with solid timber, the hardness of an engineered floor (Janka Rating) is dependent only on the top timber, not the backing. Engineered boards come in packs and therefore boards are usually about 1.8m long. Some of these lengths are made up of 2 shorter planks which really help us to achieve a random pattern when we install your floor. This makes it an increasingly popular substitute for traditional solid timber flooring. Engineered flooring can be either floated on an approved underlay, or glued directly to a suitable subfloor in order to achieve a more solid feel underfoot.
At Floors By Nature, we have large samples of the Engineered Products on display so you will know exactly what your floor will look like. For engineered Australian timber flooring installation guidelines, please see our flooring installation page or talk to our flooring specialists.
Compared to a solid board of the same width, installation of engineered timber can be $20 -$40 cheaper /m2 but many factors affect the price of each flooring. Depending on the species and grade of wood selected, different hardwood flooring materials cost different amounts. Layers of protective coating are present in our selection of engineered timber flooring, making it ideal for high-traffic areas.
With our pre-finished design, installation is simple and quick—you can use your new oak floor the same day! The boards arrive at your home already coated. Once they are installed you can move straight in – no waiting for sanding and finishing. Our clients consider pre-finished engineered timber flooring a popular choice for renovations and apartments.

In order to address the stability difficulties that solid hardwood floors have, engineered wood flooring was created in the first place. When moisture is present, wood is naturally prone to shifting shape and consistency, and it doesn’t like significant temperature variations from its native environment. When utilising it as flooring in your home, this obviously presents a big problem. Fortunately, engineered timber floors have eliminated these issues, allowing you to securely install them in your home and be sure that your new floor is sturdy regardless of the environment you live in. The boards are coated in the controlled conditions of a factory spray booth so the finish is of an extremely high standard.
Just like a solid timber floor, your engineered floor can be re-sanded and coated where it lays if it is ever damaged. Engineered timber flooring often features a top wear layer of 3mm, enabling them to be re-sanded once or twice after initial installation. To protect and maintain your engineered flooring, we recommend the following:
- Have a frequent deep clean: By just sweeping and using a damp mop regularly, you can easily maintain the beauty and quality of your engineered timber floors.
- Take care of scratches: In addition to maintaining a cleaning schedule, you should protect your floor against dents and scratches. To get rid of the visible white lines left over from scratches, use a scratch concealer. Additionally, sealing the area will stop future scratching and prevent moisture from penetrating the wood.
- Avoid cleaning products with strong chemicals: Using cleaning products that contain harmful chemicals will just do more harm than good. To remove dust and debris without harming your flooring, using a simple microfiber cloth or mop will do the work for you.
Floors By Nature gives importance to one of the most significant advantages of engineered timber flooring which is its excellent environmental friendly approach to any installation. The engineered wood board’s overall environmental impact is significantly decreased because just the top layer is made from resource-intensive hardwood. All the timber is sourced from sustainable forests through the FSC Chain of custody. Using only a thin layer of timber means that one tree goes much further.
