20mm Thick Engineered Wood Flooring

20mm engineered flooring is one of the most popular flooring thicknesses, and the thickest engineered flooring we sell. It is just as thick as the some of the thickest solid wood flooring we sell, but with different practical benefits, such as a better ability to handle moisture, and changes in humidity or temperature. 20mm refers to the thickness of the entire board. Wear layers will vary based on the product, but ours range from 4mm-6mm. This figure 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.

Although wear layer thickness doesn’t make a difference to durability given that the overall thickness is the same, thicker wear layers enable the floor to be sanded more often, making the floor last longer in high footfall areas. Not everybody opts for thicker ones though, as these are more expensive, so are usually only invested in when necessary. 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, it is clear that the lifespan of already durable 20mm flooring can be extended even further with proper care and an appropriate wear layer. In homes with higher footfall where sanding has to occur more often, it is clear that thicker wear layers should be chosen to ensure maximum lifespan. For thin wear layers, avoid hallways and communal areas that will quickly wear down the floor, and homes with children, pets or high footfall. Refinishing after sanding is also recommended.

20mm engineered flooring is the thickest available, making it durable enough for high footfall homes and commercial areas, but still good value thanks to our price match promise. It is more advantageous than thinner options, as there is higher durability, thicker wear layer options available, and a wider range of species to choose from, as it is possible to use softer woods without risking damage. Thinner floors also don’t absorb impact as well, increasing the risk of cracking or moisture damage. We recommend measuring up from the subfloor to see which thickness you require, as thicker flooring may catch on doors or make a room appear shorter in height. Our 20mm engineered floors are available in the soft walnut or harder oak, so you can choose a suitable shade and hardness for your environment.
