Our Distressed Antique Fumed Engineered Oak Wood Flooring (product code OD7012) comes with a 25-year guarantee and a modest price-tag to match. Each board measures at a total thickness of 15mm, proving an ideal match for areas of low-to-moderate foot traffic. The board is split between a multi-ply base of 11mm, and a 4mm wear layer of solid oak, hand selected for its unique characteristics and practicality. The base layer of compressed timber provides exceptional resistance to movement under pressure. Each cut of plywood is bonded together at a perpendicular angle, creating a strong criss-cross structure which is tough against high levels of moisture and humidity. Because of this, your engineered boards are perfectly suited to rooms with underfloor heating.
Whilst the surface of your flooring will look and feel incredible for 10 to 15 years, the 4mm lamella allows each board to be sanded and re-finished up to a total of 5 times. This improves the longevity of the product, allowing you to achieve consistently stunning visual results. During the manufacturing process, each board has been given a micro-bevelled edge and a distressed finish. Both features work together to deliver impressive depth and texture, creating an authentic, rustic aesthetic.
During construction, each board has been fumed in order to achieve an antique appearance. The fuming process darkens the hue of the surface veneer, emphasising the intricate, natural details of the wood’s grain. This is elevated to new heights, as each board measures at a fixed length of 2200mm, with an accompanying width of 220mm. Possessing one of the largest surface areas available, each board has plenty of space to allow for the complexities of each grain to be properly shown-off.
This choice of flooring allows for a variety of installation methods. Whether you like to do things the old-fashioned way, or keep up to speed with the latest fitting techniques, the ‘tongue and groove’ system integrated into each board has something for everyone. OD7012 can be floated, fixed to a subfloor, or installed with secret nails. The choice is all yours.
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.
