Lacquered or Oil finish

The manufacturing process gives the floor a great stability but you need to finish it after installation. Before you can walk on it you must finish the floor with lacquer or oil.

Lacquering is one way to secure your unfinished engineered floor and it comes with a long-lasting protection. Lacquer sits on top of the engineered floor and water will not seep into the core of your wood floor. Lacquer look can be high gloss, regular gloss or matte.

For a more natural look, you can finish your engineered wood floor with oil. The finished look will be a wonderful, natural, matte look. The protection of oil goes deeper in the body of the floor, so the protection will be on the surface and into the core too. The oiled finish has a great scratch resistance and sometimes has a brushed effect.

The unfinished engineered floor will lock into itself. You can install your engineered floor in one day, depending on the size of the room. The subfloor must be flat, dry and smooth.
