Flooring plays a substantial role in the aesthetics and functionality of a space, regardless of the type of project. A timber floor is often the most popular option and is regularly chosen for the range of aesthetic benefits that timber can offer. However, as a natural product, timber does have some drawbacks that mean architects, specifiers, and designers need to consider other products that can meet or exceed the qualities of timber, without the downsides.

Engineered timber flooring experts Havwoods have released a new whitepaper discussing some of the flooring options that are available to architects, specifiers, and designers. Engineered timber flooring and the alternatives: a product selection guide highlights the benefits of engineered timber floors over traditional solid timber floors as well as other flooring products such as laminate and carpet.

The whitepaper outlines how engineered timber outperforms solid timber by clearly discussing the comparative costs, appearance, durability, health impacts, acoustics, thermal properties, and sustainability.

The paper goes on to discuss these areas in relation to vinyl, laminate, and carpet flooring products, again highlighting the suitability of engineered timber over these for a wide range of projects and applications.

The whitepaper is free to download and is a must-read for anyone trying to decide on the best flooring product for their project.
