10mm & 11mm Engineered Flooring

10/11mm thick engineered flooring refers to the thickness of the entire board. Wear layers will vary based on the product so please browse all our range - we have options from 2.5mm-4mm. This determines how much you can sand the floor down, whereas the overall thickness determines how long the floor will last, and how durable it is.

Of course thicker floors last longer and are more durable, but the wear layer should be considered a guideline for sanding, which can also affect lifespan. Sanding is used to refresh the floor to how it was at purchase, in terms of removing scuffs and scratches. Generally, a floor can be sanded to the thickness of the wear layer - if this is 2mm, you can sand it twice, if it is 6, you can sand it 5-6 times. As sanding can occur every 15 years, even the thinnest floors may last a lifetime, but in homes with higher footfall where sanding has to occur more often, it is clear that thicker wear layers should be chosen to ensure the required sanding can occur. Refinish after sanding is also recommended. For thin wear layers, avoid hallways and communal areas that will quickly wear down the floor, and homes with children, pets or high footfall.

10/11mm engineered flooring is our thinnest option, making it also the most cost effective. A thin floor has unique advantages - underfloor heating is better transferred; in rooms with lower ceilings, thin flooring can make all the difference if tall furniture is to be installed; and doors that don’t have much space underneath would catch on thicker planks. We recommend measuring up from the subfloor to see which thickness you require. Thin engineered floors are stronger than thin solid floors due to the construction of the supporting materials. Ours are mostly oak, as this is some of the most durable and versatile wood you can purchase and is better suited therefore to thinner floors.
