Solid Timber vs. Engineered Exp er t's Advice Which should I cho ose?

What are the benefits of Engineered flooring? 1. More stable than solid timber flooring The greatest benefit of Engineered Timber flooring is increased resistance to higher and lower moisture levels than Solid wood flooring, which means it is much less susceptible to shrinkage, warping or cupping. This makes it perfect for New Zealand’s humid climate conditions! 2. Can be glued down* Just like Solid Timber flooring, most Engineered Timber floors can be direct glued down over dry concrete slabs or a wooden subfloor. *Disclaimer: Please check with the manufacturer to ensure what installation methods are suitable for your flooring.

Wear layer explained

How is the structure of Engineered flooring different to that of Solid timber? Solid Timber flooring is 100% solid hardwood right the way through the plank. In comparison, Engineered Timber flooring has a top layer of hardwood timber veneer, which has been glued and pressed onto the top of an engineered core. The core is the base that makes up the rest of the flooring plank apart from the veneer. The core’s composition can vary widely from brand to brand, but is generally made up of either a hardwood and/or soft plywood, with the best engineered wood floors having between 6 and 12 multi-ply layers that are glued crossdirectionally and pressed together.

ENGINEERED CORE (BASE)

The tongue and groove (or locking joint system in some floors) is what holds the flooring together when it is laid. The wear layer, as illustrated in the diagram, is the area of hardwood that is LOCATED ABOVE THE TONGUE. With any timber floor you can only sand back to the top of the tongue or joint system - any further and the floor will have nothing to hold it together. In that case, it doesn’t matter what is below the tongue, it is never going to be visible - and therefore why not have an engineered floor? With an engineered floor, you are helping to conserve precious hardwood timber by using only approx one third as much as you would with a solid timber floor. Engineered Floor wear layers vary in thickness between brands. Wear layer thickness directly affects the number of future resands your floor will be able to take - The thicker your wear layer, the more resands. The general rule of thumb is to allow 1mm per resand, plus 1mm or so for a buffer zone. A 6mm wear layer (closest equivalent to a solid timber floor) should take between 4-5 resands, while a 3mm wear layer should take 1-2 resands, and so on. Note that products with thicker wear layers also tend to be more expensive, so if you have a smaller budget you may choose a thinner wear layer.

3. Will give you the look and feel of a Solid Timber floor If the floor is installed as you would a Solid floor, it will also feel just the same as a Solid Timber floor to walk on. Once installed, the base layer is hidden underneath the floor and nobody will know that it is not a solid timber floor. It will add the same resale value to your home. 4. Many options available Just like Solid Timber flooring, Engineered flooring is available in a number of different widths, lengths and thicknesses. It is also available pre-finished, eliminating the need for sanding and finishing on site and meaning your floor is ready to use much quicker! 5. Uses less precious hardwood resource Most Engineered flooring uses approximately one third of the amount of solid hardwood resource compared to Solid Timber flooring. Therefore Engineered flooring is helping to conserve our precious hardwood resources! 6. Products to suit most budgets Engineered flooring is now very comparable in price to Solid Timber flooring of equivalent thickness. Thickness directly affects the price of Engineered flooring and it is also available in thinner options for those with a smaller budget.


7. Faster to install Engineered flooring is almost always machined to a higher standard than solid timber flooring, with joint profiles for the most part being highly consistent. The boards are usually pretty straight too, and the tongue and grooves tend to maintain their size well due to being engineered so they do not swell with moisture. Therefore Engineered boards usually fit together very smoothly. On the other hand, Solid Timber is often difficult to install due to lower tolerances in the machining which leads to variances in joint profiles. Also, boards can take up moisture, causing the joints to swell and/or causing bowing or cupping to the whole length of the board. This is not always the case but when it does happen it can make the floor very difficult to install.

How to choose the right product for your project

Things to be cautious of before buying Engineered flooring

The first step to working out what product you need is to assess your budget and also check if there are any height requirements for the situation it will be used in, and the intended installation method.

Price vs. Quality As with most products on the marketplace, there are some good brands and some really bad brands. Generally you get what you pay for - so if an Engineered floor is unusually cheap, it is probably poor quality. Try to buy from a reputable store that has been in the industry for a reasonable amount of time and has a wealth of knowledge on the product, rather than a cheap importer who is here today, gone tomorrow and can’t help you with product information.

8. Less wastage With any Engineered flooring, you should be able to use every piece of flooring that you buy as it has been strictly graded and should have no structural defects or characteristics outside of the grade that you ordered. However, with solid timber flooring, there is always a percentage of product that is not usable, due to cracks or loose knots, or other structural defects.

Height Requirements: In some situations there may be a height requirement you need to meet - it is wise to always check with your builder on this. For example, if you are overlaying the flooring on an existing surface and need to minimise thickness you may require a thinner product like a 15mm option. On the other hand, if laying over joists, you will need a thicker option such as 21mm to ensure ultimate stability.

Choosing an installer Almost as important as the product you choose, is the person you choose to install it. Installing an Engineered or laminate floor is a tricky task and we highly recommend you get a skilled flooring installer to do the job. No, not your builder - even if he thinks he can do it! Most reputable suppliers will be able to recommend a good installer for their product. If not, you could try looking online - be sure to check for positive reviews. The ultimate is an installer that is approved by the ATFA (Australasian Timber Flooring Association), as they will have done the required training to become a master at flooring installation.

Budget: Generally the thicker the product (and wear layer), the more expensive it will be. If you’re on a tight budget a thinner flooring option will be a more affordable option. If your budget is unlimited, the world is your oyster - you could get the thickest flooring available, in the widest plank and with the biggest wear layer, giving you more resands.

Intended Installation Method: We usually recommend timber flooring to be installed using the direct-stick method, as it gives a firmer feel underfoot and eliminates any hollow noise. Most flooring can be direct-stuck regardless of joint system (tongue & groove or locking joint), although please check with the manufacturer. However, in some places installers prefer to float flooring over an underlay - in which case your flooring will need a locking joint system. Personal Preference: From here it all comes down to personal preference - what colours are available, whether you like the idea of a solid-equivalent thickness of floor, what plank width you prefer, etc etc!

SOLID TIMBER

Compare Apples with Apples: If you are looking at a number of different products, ensure you are taking into account the plank thickness and width, and wear layer thinner, narrower planks will usually be cheaper but that is because they take less resources to make, they are not necessarily a bargain. Remember not to judge solely on price, but to compare the quality also. Check the makeup of the core - a 6-12-layer cross-directional ply will be more stable than a 3-layer product. Check the Warranties: Check that the product has a warranty. Often this will tell you a lot about the quality of the product - Poor quality products usually have shorter (or nonexistant) warranties, while good quality products should have a longer warranty. For Pre-finished Engineered Floors: Check that the floor will not need further finishing after installation. Some suppliers cheat customers into thinking their flooring is pre-finished when it is really only partially finished and will require a final finishing coat after installation. This means the supplier is able to give you a cheaper price but in the long run it may end up more expensive (and timeconsuming) than a fully-finished floor. Be cautious of pre-finished natural oiled floors. Although they have a beautiful matte finish, most require regular maintenance oiling, a fact which some suppliers fail to advise the consumer at the point of sale. If left untended they can dry out and crack, and are then ruined. For this reason we do not supply them.

Trend Forecast YOUR 2017 GUIDE TO WOOD INTERIORS Flooring is a staple element within the interior design world. This means it is important that the FortĂŠ team are always ahead of the pack. Our flooring specialists travel around the globe attending Domotex trade shows so we always know what is on trend, what will be trending and what has done its dash.

The wide plank Wide planks are making a comeback due to their rustic and natural characteristics. Once a popular choice for farmhouses, they are now highly sought particularly in modern interiors, creating a contrast by morphing old elements with the new. The large dimensions give the room a feeling of exclusivity and grandeur, as well as making a space appear larger and more luxurious. Because of the size, the need for less planks can make your floor feel and look more natural.

Feature Walls Eye catching at eye level. Decorative feature walls and ceilings are trending now more than ever, and the more distinctive the better. Feature walls and ceilings are being embraced as a canvas, making them the focal point of the room. They are a way to add a dose of colour and style to the room and can be used to tie various elements together. Not only can these be used on walls and ceilings, apply them to your counter fronts or even use as a splash back.

Sustainability Feel go od flo oring

Environmental Did you know that engineered timber uses one third of the amount of solid hardwood compared to solid timber floors? All our flooring is manufactured using non-controversial materials and carefully sourced hardwood timbers. No rare or endangered timber species, which we couldn’t be prouder of. Our luxury Manor Collection is even PEFC certified, ensuring they are sourced from sustainably managed forests. Manor - Atelier Cobble Stone pg 38

Reclaimed Reclaimed, recycled, repurposed and re-loved. Our ranges Imondi and Helm offer products that have been salvaged from old barns, boats and barrels from as far back as the 19th century. These ranges are an inspiring way to reuse historic materials filled with character and uniqueness. Imondi - Pine Raw Chevron pg 58

Economical The much anticipated Urban Plank is one of our most economical ranges yet. The collection promises the look of luxury by offering a product that is both genuine timber and simultaneously affordable. The surface hard-wood layer is thinner, however can still be sanded back up to 2 times! Urban Plank - Tokyo pg 17

PEFC The PEFC organisation ensures that timber products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards. When you see this logo on our FortĂŠ products, it means that they are sourced from sustainably managed forests.

Extreme Matte Matte finished floors are on the incline, not only for aesthetic purposes, but practicality too. The more reflective the finish, the easier it is to see dirt and blemishes. Low-lustre finishes are modern and a brilliant way of achieving the casual sophistication of Scandinavian styled flooring, a popular European trend. High gloss floors are a timelessly classic option to achieve an eye-catching, magnificent, look. However, if you are wanting to modernise your home, a matte floor may be the perfect choice for you.

Developed from the popular European trend, our new Pure Matte is a new lacquer finish system that gives a soft, modern anti-gloss look with a high level of wear resistance. Only available with Ultra and Smartfloor ranges.

Geometric

The season of change and contrast has influenced the patterns of our floors. Uniform is out and random is in. Mixed widths and tones are trending to achieve informal, artistic and contrasting patterns. However, still on trend are the classic parquet patterns, Herringbone and Chevron. These traditional formations have made a solid comeback and we don’t see this elegant trend leaving anytime soon.

PRE-FINISHED 14MM WOOD PLANKS

Urban Plank is an engineered flooring system featuring the licensed UNILIN® locking profile. Making it fast and easy to install, the European Oak planks come pre-finished ready to be glued down or floated. At 14mm thick with a 3mm hardwearing UV Lacquered layer, this allows for 2-3 sands if you wish to refresh your look. The 3mm wear layer is genuine hardwood timber on a base of hevea strips. These strips work similarly to a cross-directional ply base, providing very strong resistance to shrinkage and cupping, making a strong and durable solid timber floor. Due to the thinner hard-wood layer, Urban Plank is a lot more affordable than other ranges, offering you the look of luxury for less. This reliable floor is also great for using on feature walls, ceilings and counters.

MANOR

LUXURIOUS FRENCH OAK FLOORS

The Manor Collection is a selection of high quality antique flooring crafted from genuine French Oak. The flooring in this collection is aged using a variety of techniques, some of them used are centuries old - resulting in highly authentic-looking aged floors. From medallions, to planks, chevron and herringbone patterns, there is a generous range to choose from! All Manor Collection products are engineered type construction with a solid hardwood wear layer on a base of cross-directional hardwood ply. The cross-directional base layers provide very strong resistance to shrinkage and cupping, making it much more stable than a solid timber floor and ideal for New Zealand’s humid climate. Flooring from the Manor Collection will give a very authentic luxury aged feel to any interior. Manor Collection flooring is recommended to be direct stuck. Not only suitable for flooring, it can also be used for other applications such as feature walls, ceilings and counters.

IMONDI

RECLAIMED WOOD FLOORING & CEILING PRODUCTS

Imondi is an award-winning company specialising in the supply of reclaimed flooring and wall coverings. Imondi products are made from all kinds of salvaged timbers, ranging from wood rescued from old boats and barns, to the wooden poles in the venetian canals. Forté Flooring has access to all Imondi products, even those not featured in this catalogue. These products have an engineered structure, composed of reclaimed timber fixed to a multi-level ply backing. This increases the dimensional stability and provides a high level of resistance to warping, shrinkage and cupping, which timbers are especially prone to in the New Zealand climate. Imondi is best suited for flooring, wall and ceiling coverings, and is commonly seen as the focal point in many restaurants, bars, retail stores and more.

matching balterio trims coming soon enquire within

QUALITY BELGIUM MADE LAMINATE PLANKS Balterio is a globally recognized European laminate brand, manufactured in Belgium and distributed exclusively in New Zealand by Forté Flooring. Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic product, fused together with a complex lamination process. Essentially, laminate flooring is a man-made floor type which replicates the look and feel of a real wood floor at a much more affordable price. The major benefits of laminate flooring are its strength and durability, being much harder and more wear-resistant than real wood

Balterio is a very hardwearing floor option and is required to be floated on an underlay. It is an ideal flooring option for high-traffic areas and those with smaller budgets. It is also suitable for other applications such as feature walls, ceilings and counters.

QUALITY BELGIUM MADE LAMINATE PLANKS Vitality is a well-known European laminate brand, manufactured in Belgium and distributed exclusively in New Zealand by Forté Flooring. Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic product, fused together with a complex lamination process. Essentially, laminate flooring is a man-made floor type which replicates the look and feel of a real wood floor at a much more affordable price. The major benefits of laminate flooring are its strength and durability, being much harder and more wear-resistant than real wood flooring. Vitality is a very hardwearing floor option and is recommended to be floated on an underlay. It is an ideal flooring option for high-traffic areas and those with smaller budgets. It is also suitable for other applications such as feature walls, ceilings and counters.

HELM Helm - Sampan Private Residence, Auckland.

92


RECLAIMED BOATWOOD WALL TILES Helm is a unique range of wooden wall tiles, expertly crafted from timbers salvaged from old de-commissioned fishing boats. Most of the salvaged wood is Catalpa, a native American timber that is lightweight, incredibly stable and resistant to rot; these unique properties meaning it has been a common timber for boatbuilding. The salvaged timber is sorted and stacked according to size and transported to the factory where it is denailed, steamed and kiln dried. This re conditions the wood and ensures it is optimally stable. It is then cut into components and glued securely onto a netted backing, ready to be used for wall tiles. Helm products provide a unique feature piece with an interesting story, capable of transforming any residential or commercial interior. The Helm panelling is intended to be direct stuck to a pre-levelled surface.
