Wooden Flooring

Whether it be engineered wood or laminate flooring underlay is vital. The underlay is fitted between the sub-floor and the laminate and fills the void (echo chamber) that would otherwise be empty. The underlay also supports the joints in your click system also referred to as a floating floor, expanding the life span of your new flooring.

The difference is in the detail. Finishing touches are a must!
