What is engineered timber flooring?
Engineered timber flooring is an innovative and technologically advanced method of constructing hardwood flooring using layers of different materials. A top layer of natural timber such as Australian eucalyptus in the case of Settlers Run, is protected beneath several layers of highly protective clear coatings, providing the same visual appeal and feel of solid timber floorboards.
While there are pros and cons for different flooring types, structural core layers beneath the top timber layer provide engineered timber flooring with greater durability and resilience in high traffic areas of family homes.
Solid hardwood floors are nailed and glued onto the subfloor, but engineered timber flooring is installed using the efficient, easy and economical ‘floating floor’ technique. With floating floors, the engineered planks are fixed to each other using a click-and-lock-together method so that they effectively float above the subfloor.
High quality engineered timber flooring differs from laminate, hybrid or vinyl floors although they use the same installation technique. With engineered timber floors a top layer of real timber is applied to the core layers, whereas with other floating floor types the top layer uses highly innovative and technical imaging to replicate the look of real timber on a durable surface such as laminate, vinyl, or a blend of the two.
How to lay Settlers Run engineered timber flooring?
Settlers Run engineered timber flooring is quick and easy to install providing a luxurious look for much less cost and labour than solid timber flooring. Engineered timber, like laminate, hybrid and vinyl planks, isn’t nailed to the subfloor. The planks ‘float’ above the subfloor, using a highly efficient click-and-lock-together fixing system to connect them to each other. This is why they are referred to as ‘floating floors.’
Settlers Run can be installed by homeowners as a DIY project, or you can engage the expert installers from your local Carpet Court store for a guaranteed professional finish.

Is engineered Settlers Run timber flooring waterproof?
High quality engineered timber flooring has excellent resistance to moisture but it is not waterproof. This means that (a) any liquid spills should be cleaned up promptly, (b) you should not wet mop or steam mop your engineered timber floors and (c) excessive moisture in the room should be eliminated.
We do not recommend installing Settlers Run in wet areas of the home such as the bathroom or laundry. Clean your engineered timber flooring using a vacuum with a brush head attachment for wood floor surfaces, a static mop or a soft indoor broom. If stubborn stains or marks are present, you may use a slightly damp mop which is well wrung to remove excess moisture, but do not wet mop your engineered timber floors.
Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when caring for your timber floor.
