An engineered Oak timber floor is a board of timber which consists of more than one layer. It is virtually identical to a traditional timber engineered floor board, except for the exclusive Oak top layer.
By placing each layer so that the grain runs perpendicularly it becomes virtually impossible for the timber to swell or shrink with changes in humidity and temperature. This dramatically increases the boards’ stability.
The top layer of an engineered Oak board may be anything from 1mm to 6mm thick. The thicker the wear layer generally equates to the more times it can be sanded and refinished.

4mm or 6mm Solid European Oak Top Layer
With its distinct grain pattern and exceptional character, white oak can have many stunning looks by using various techniques ranging from wire brushing, glazing, fuming and staining.
The top layer is a either 4mm or 6mm solid oak veneer, which allows re-sending up to 4~6 times. In most households, the timber flooring only requires re-sending every 15-25 years to refresh its look. This would offer oak flooring an average lifespan of 80~120 years
