There are three main types of wooden floors :
Engineered wooden floor :
It is made up of three layers of thickness. The top layer of noble wood (European or exotic) also called “facing” receives the finish. Underneath is a layer of high density chipboard or engineered wood. The backing is composed of unrolled wood (pine for example) which provides stability to the whole. Engineered wooden floor can adapt to many types of rooms and its lifespan varies between 50 and 70 years depending on the maintenance. In addition, it allows for original and very aesthetic designs. Due to all the qualities with which it is endowed, engineered wooden floor is the most requested in France and in Europe.
Solid wooden floor :
It is the traditional wooden floor, the solid wood structure is made of a single species of wood, which is what makes it so natural.
Laminate flooring :
Laminate flooring looks like wooden floor. They consist of several layers including a medium or other chipboard support base, a decoration and then a protective and wear layer. Very easy to install with a self-locking system or with grooves, the laminate covering is meeting more and more success. Its cost remains the most reasonable.
