Engineered wood flooring has been seen as a new breakthrough in wood floor technology; more young home owners are able to have the luxury and comfort of real wood flooring without spending a hefty sum in the renovation compare to investing in solid wood. However, in countries like Singapore where humidity and moist levels are high, not all engineered wood floor brands can be recommended locally.
Here are the reasons why:
1) Climatic conditions
When engineered wood flooring is concerned, one of the things to look at is the core layer of such finished product. The core layer of an engineered wood flooring is the heart and strength of the entire wood flooring, hence it needs to be resistant and stable to changes in the climatic conditions. Hence, using tropical engineered wood flooring products will be more suitable for tropical countries such as Singapore or Malaysia.
BKB engineered wood flooring's core layer is made up of Hevea, which is a tropical real wood that is highly resistant to humidity conditions in tropcial countries.
2. Warranty Claims
When we are talking about wood flooring, every one year, it is always best to maintain it in order to have a lasting wood flooring. As engineered wood flooring is something that a home owner would have for the longer run, in terms of maintenance such as repairing or replacement of wood, tropical engineered wood flooring products will be more cost effective in terms of readily supply locally or in the regional countries. Home owners in tropical countries can therefore have a peace of mind in getting their product warranty claims on their engineered wood flooring.
Engineered wood flooring helps to improve global forest sustainability. Using less timber to manufacture a engineered wood flooring plank to a solid wood plank, it helps to saves and conserves our forests. Hence, home owners can therefore enjoy comfortable real wooden flooring and at the same time keeping our forest healthy.
However, one thing to concern here, is that, home owners have to look out for credible Eco labels for any engineered wood flooring products such as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or World Wildlife Fund (WWF) for Nature.
At the end of the day, with the advance in technology and as society getting more affluent, the new generation of younger home owners in Singapore who are looking to a luxury and comfortable home without overspending the renovation budget, could considered tropical engineered wood flooring as a long term investment for theit home.
