Woodpecker engineered flooring represents the very best when it comes to durable flooring with a sophisticated style to match. Started in 1973, Woodpecker is a family owned business and has never compromised on quality or sustainability.
knotistry is proud to be one of the UK’s largest Woodpecker flooring stockists. We offer the full range of Woodpecker engineered hardwood flooring ranges including Berkley, Chepstow, Goodrich, Harlech and Salcombe.
Engineered hardwood flooring consists of a hardwood veneer supported by a base layer or core board of multi-layered ply. This is in contrast to solid hardwood flooring which is 100% hardwood cut straight from the tree. By combining a hardwood veneer with an interlocking layered ply base, you can benefit from the look and under-foot feel of hardwood whilst having a moisture-resistant floor.
High moisture environments or homes that experience dramatic temperature changes can often cause solid hardwood floors to cup and change shape. Engineered hardwood tiles have the flexibility and are warp-resistant, making them the perfect choice for areas with underfloor heating.
Who owns woodpecker flooring?
Woodpecker flooring is owned by Nelson and Darwyn Ker, the son and grandson of Bruce Ker who started the company over 51 years ago in Bristol.
How long do engineered hardwood floors last?
Engineered hardwood flooring tends to last between 20-30 years depending on the intensity of traffic it is subjected to. Woodpecker flooring manufactures their engineered wood flooring with a high quality aluminum oxide finish which protects them from moisture, scratches and wear.
How to clean engineered hardwood floors
Great care should be taken when cleaning engineered hardwood flooring so you might want to consider the following points:
You should clean engineered hardwood flooring tiles with as little water as possible. A damp rung out cloth should be sufficient when dusting or cleaning off light marks.
To protect the finish on your floor try to avoid any harsh bleaches or cleaning agents and use a half and half mixture of vinegar and hot water when cleaning more stubborn stains
Even though engineered hardwood flooring is resistant to ambient moisture, excessive levels of wetness may cause the hardwood veneer to warp. For this reason steam cleaners or saturated mops should be avoided
Scouring cloths or wire wool should not be used, as this will damage the finish and expose the unprotected hardwood veneer to dampness and damage.
