Engineered wood flooring consists of multiple layers of wood that are glued together in a cross laminated pattern adding strength and stability. They are available in a broad range of sizes, textures and species.
Laminate flooring simulates wood with a photographic layer under a clear protective hard wearing layer. The inner core layer is usually composed of resin and fibre board material called HDF. Top quality ranges have a water proof surface.
Hybrid is the latest flooring innovation, combining the best attributes of laminate (stable movement) and vinyl (waterproof) to create a rigid floating floor that can be installed in all areas of a home.
Vinyl Plank flooring is normally a multi-layer of PVC. There are many different thicknesses, sizes, styles and patterns available. It comes in both direct stick and interlocking floating systems similar to laminate flooring.
Cork flooring is actually made from the bark of the Cork Oak tree. About every 10 years or so the bark can be harvested from the tree–and then it grows back naturally. Cork comes in both a solid granulated tile or a floating option which is comprised of a cork top over a HDF core board and is prefinished.
