Engineered floors are usually challenging project when it comes to restoration service because of their structure. Engineered wood is manufactured product, made by several layers of plywood or lumber material glued together and topped with a thin layer of real wood with thickness between 4 and 8 mm. As a manufactured product engineered wood is made extra solid and durable, but engineered floors also suffer issues. Although the material is pretty much suitable for all types of installation over even uneven and damp subfloor, with time engineered wood can suffer due to high moisture levels and temperature amplitudes. Bringing the character of real wood, if not installed properly, the material's “movement” and ballooning can cause cracking and the occur of non-structural gaps. In addition, because the top layer is made from thin real wood layer, depending on the type of the wood itself, it can suffer the same problems as hardwood, including thinning, worn finish, scratches, etc. Sanding Experts London engineered floor repairs team can find a solution to every existing issue and prevent future ones in London, providing professional restoration performance and expert maintenance advices.
