Engineered timber is natural flooring that brings a feel of earthy luxury to your Gold Coast home.
Featuring natural variants, grains and properties, timber flooring provides a unique sense of individuality within your home.
With a multi-layer construction of pre-finished natural timber veneer with a hardwood or ply core, this flooring comes in a range of finishes. Opt for a textured brushed finish, a raw finish, high gloss or a semi-gloss smooth finish to fit your home’s interior and to suit your lifestyle.
The benefit of having engineered timber flooring in your Gold Coast home instead of regular oak timber flooring is that it is installed using a click system. All pieces of the flooring can be fit to your existing floors and do not have to be attached to braces.
Depending on the rigidity and stability of the existing floor, installation of engineered timber can be carried out with either a glue-down or a floating solution and two different types of click; a tongue and groove or a 5G locking click.
Engineered timber requires a high level of expertise and knowledge to get the best results. You can trust our team to confidently guide you through every aspect from wood type to staining, finishes, installation and maintenance.

If you’re asking what is engineered timber flooring when compared to solid timber flooring—the main difference is in its construction. Solid timber flooring is, of course, constructed completely of timber. Engineered timber flooring is constructed of multiple layers, usually all running in different directions to help with expansion and movement. It also has a top wear layer—some even making the flooring scratch-resistant.
The manufacturing of engineered timber flooring is designed to be more ‘resource-efficient’, using up to ⅔ less timber than solid timber floors.
Multi-ply construction is usually manufactured from mixed hardwood with each veneer running in an alternate direction to provide enhanced stability. The wear layer of solid oak is then bonded to the top of the multi-ply core.
The method is similar for 3-layer engineered flooring. The construction comprises 3 layers of thicker veneer with each layer bonded in an alternate direction. The core of the 3 layers will generally feature small individual pieces of timber that are bonded together. Solid oak is used as the top visual wear layer.

Selecting the type or brand of timber flooring for your next project isn’t as complicated as choosing products like carpet as there typically aren’t as many variables. However, there are some important questions you may ask your timber flooring supplier when searching for the best timber flooring, including:
If you’re searching ‘how to get wooden flooring’, we suggest that you drop into our beautifully renovated Nerang flooring showroom and explore our range of engineered timber flooring samples. As well as having some styles on our showroom floor, we have a range of products on display that you can try in your own home.
If you can’t get into our showroom, we also offer free in-home measure & quote appointments. For engineered timber flooring though, we do suggest coming into the showroom as the samples are heavy and because we do have so many to choose from, it’s best to see them all for yourself. Timber truly does increase the value of your property, so we want you to get your selection just right!
And, speaking of samples, it’s important to note that the sample is only indicative of how the final flooring will look. We suggest looking at installed photos online to get an idea of the final product.
The most important thing you need to know about how to clean timber floors is that you need to keep on top of any spills and/or moisture. Excessive moisture or dampness on your timber flooring (especially in between your gaps), can cause all kinds of issues.
To overcome this, we recommend cleaning up any spills as soon as they occur and using a mop that does not hold onto water. There are spray varieties at your local supermarket or hardware store which are cost-effective and avoid using excessive amounts of water to clean your floors. If it’s a sunny day, we also suggest opening windows or turning on fans to help speed up the drying process.
It’s also important to regularly vacuum your timber floors to ensure that there aren’t any debris that could damage your flooring if they were to drag along the floor (imagine a small rock caught under a dining chair that is pulled out). A vacuum with a floor-brush attachment is recommended.
Most importantly, we encourage you to follow the manufacturer’s cleaning and maintenance recommendations when cleaning your timber floors. It’s important to follow these steps to maintain your warranty and guarantees.
If appropriate, we also offer a flooring solution called PureFlor Hard Surface Cleaner. It is Australian-Made, contains only natural ingredients in a concentrated formulation, is pH neutral, non-toxic and removes the toughest stains by destroying organic stains, soils and odours at source.
There are a number of factors that need to be considered when quoting the total cost of installing engineered timber flooring in your property. The price depends on the construction and quality of the product, installation requirements (we’ve covered some of this below) as well as any transportation costs from the supplier.
At One Source Flooring, we manage the entire timber installation process from start to finish and, because we’ve completed your measure and have supplied your flooring—we can provide an accurate, fixed-price quote.
It’s important to note that ‘wastage’ is also required, generally an extra 15-20% on top of the net area. By taking this and the below factors into consideration, you will have a more realistic idea on the square meterage you require for the job.
We recommend booking a free in-home measure and quote so that our expert team can provide an accurate quote. Other important considerations include:
Before installing the timber flooring, there may be a need to prepare your floor. If the project is a renovation, either you or our timber flooring installers would need to remove the old flooring and ensure that the floor is clean, level and in top condition.
The number of rooms that need new engineered timber flooring will influence the overall cost. Generally speaking, the cost per square metre of your timber flooring reduces as your requirements increase.
Installing timber flooring in a rectangular-shaped room will cost less than a room that’s an odd shape or has round edges. This is purely due to the increase in time taken to complete the room as it’s more complex
Timber flooring installation on stairways requires accurate measurement, cutting and precise installation. Due to the complexity of installing timber and it’s nosing on stairways, and the time taken to do so, you may need to pay extra for installation.
We understand that not everyone can move big, heavy furniture. Choosing to take-up a furniture removal service can marginally increase your cost. If you’ve got the muscle to move furniture, we recommend doing this prior to installation to save some money.
If your property is in a highrise (or similar) and access to the space is an issue, this may increase the cost of your installation. If specific equipment or machinery is required to transport your materials to your property, this will be worked into your quote.
Buying and installing engineered timber flooring on your Gold Coast property is an investment, so it’s important to employ the services of an expert timber installer. At One Source Flooring, we regularly receive rave reviews from our customers and only pick the best installers for the job.
