Buying Wood Flooring

Wood flooring is the most environmentally sustainable flooring choice

Nothing beats the natural beauty and functionality of wood flooring for your home or commercial buildings. Whether you’re looking for hardwood or engineered timber flooring options, Flooring Express Tauranga will help you choose the perfect wood flooring to suit your needs.

The key difference between hardwood and engineered wood is that hardwood flooring planks are made from solid wood whilst engineered timber flooring planks are made from multiple layers of wood veneers.

Engineered wood flooring

Engineered timber flooring combines the beauty of hardwood with enhanced stability and versatility. Constructed with multiple layers of wood veneers, engineered wood flooring is suitable for a variety of installations, including below-grade spaces and areas with fluctuating humidity levels.

Choosing the perfect wooden flooring

Wooden flooring is available to buy in a range of plank widths and lengths, each offering unique benefits for a variety of applications.

Solid timber flooring can also be installed in one of two methods – these are floating click-together and direct glue-down.

Craig explains the choices available and outlines the main differences to look out for:

Floating click-together wood flooring
Timber flooring with a floating click-together installation system provides easy and quick installation without the need for adhesive. This style is ideal for DIY enthusiasts and offers the flexibility to disassemble and reinstall as needed.
Standard width timber planks
Standard width timber plank flooring offers a traditional look and easy installation. Perfect for classic and timeless interiors, these planks provide versatility in design options while maintaining durability and elegance.
Direct glue-down wooden flooring
For spaces requiring maximum stability and moisture resistance, direct glue-down wood flooring is the preferred choice. This installation method provides a solid underfoot feel and is suitable for high-traffic areas and commercial spaces.
Extra wide timber planks
Create a modern and spacious appearance with extra wide plank flooring. These wider planks enhance the visual impact of large rooms and offer quick installation with fewer seams, perfect for contemporary interiors seeking a bold statement.
14mm thickness timber flooring
Godfrey Hirst timber flooring is available in 14mm thickness planks. These provide superior noise reduction and enhanced durability, stability and impact resistance for longer lasting performance in high-traffic areas and commercial spaces.
