Engineered Timber FAQ

What are the benefits of Engineered Timber?

If you are keen on the look of traditional wooden floorboards but don’t want the hassle of caring for them but you want something a step up from laminate flooring then engineered timber flooring could be the solution for your Auckland home. Engineered wood flooring is ready to lay straight away with no treatment needed and is more hardwearing than floorboards. Our team supply and install engineered wood flooring across Auckland including Birkenhead, Chatswood and Albany.



Oiled Wood

Oiled Timber floors offer a timeless quality to your home, office or commercial space. They are a showcase in beautiful design which will help you select the right product from our extensive range.

Our suppliers at Creative Flooring import European oak engineered flooring boards in three grades – premium, country and rustic. Your carefully chosen flooring is then pre-finished directly at their factory using European hard-wax oils. Our light wire brushing process helps conceal minor scratch marks when your floor is in use. It also highlights the timber grain and opens up the pores for better oil absorption.
