|142mm Brushed and Lacquered Click Engineered European Oak Wood Flooring – product code EC3001 - of 13mm with a 2.5mm solid hardtop wear layer. This product comes in fixed lengths of 1187mm. This product is brushed and lacquered which gives the plank a hardwearing surface which is easy to keep clean. Each plank has a 4V Groove, bevelled edge giving each plank more definition individually. This floor can be sanded down up to 4 times however it shouldn't be necessary to do so for the first 15-20 years. The grade of this product is rustic meaning the planks have some knots and imperfections giving the product much more character and warmth.
You may have noticed that this product uses the ‘click’ method of installation. Click or ‘glueless’ solid oak flooring has a handful of clear benefits when compared with a product that uses the tongue and groove installation method. First and foremost, each plank simply clicks together like a jigsaw without the need for joint glue. This not only speeds up the process of laying the actual floor but is also an entirely mess free way of installing. In addition to this, as the planks are not fixed down to the subfloor, individual planks can be uplifted and replaced relatively easily.
Engineered wood flooring looks incredible but it is also incredibly practical too. Engineered wood flooring is made from layers of plywood stuck together before being finished with a layer of lamella. This means engineered wood flooring can have many more applications in comparison to a solid wood for example. Engineered wood floor can therefore be used with underfloor heating and is also suitable for using in conservatories and even basements.
If you’re looking to install solid or engineered wood flooring by hand, here are a few things to bear in mind:Tongue and Groove vs Click
Before you purchase your solid wood flooring, check which installation system it uses. There are two main types: ‘Tongue and Groove’ and ‘Click’.
• Tongue and Groove is more traditional, ensuring dimensional stability and strength. Along one edge, a ‘tongue’ protrudes from the centre of the board, whilst on the other, an indented groove is cut into the wood. This allows each board to fit together securely.
• Click installation is quick and hassle free. Like tongue and groove, click boards fit together, however, the click method allows the boards to lock into place, snapping together with a single movement.Floating
Many fitters prefer floating their boards due to quick and easy installation. Floating does not require you to fix your flooring to a subfloor, however, only click planks can be fitted this way.
Adhesive is applied to the groove for added stability, and underlay is fitted underneath the board. This cuts down on labour, whilst ensuring that your boards are comfortable and strong underfoot.Fixing
Fixing your flooring to the subfloor will encourage a long lifespan and minimal movement. Both Tongue and Groove and Click boards can be fitted this way, however, it is more popular with the former.
Depending on the material of your subfloor, boards can be fixed in a variety of ways. For solid surfaces such as concrete, adhesive is applied directly under the board. For wooden subfloors, the boards can be ‘secret nailed’ along the tongue. Both methods are equally beneficial, giving you outstanding results.
