Berkeley Raisin Walnut 190 x 20/4mm Wood Flooring is 20mm thick with a 4mm solid hardtop wear layer.

This product comes in fixed lengths of 1860mm. Walnut wood flooring is one of the most luxurious products on the market, it doesn't have the most modest price tag but once laid the true beauty and quality is evidential, completely transforming any room. This walnut product is beautifully pre finished with 7 coats of pearl satin UV lacquer this gives the floor a layer of ultimate protection, durability and makes it easy to maintain.

Unlike a solid wood floor, an engineered wood floor can be used with underfloor heating as it is able to retain heat without enduring any damage. Because it is able to withstand this heat, Berkeley Raisin Walnut can be used in many more rooms of your house than a solid wood, such as a conservatory or basement. Its versatility also extends to its ease of installation, as it can either be nailed, glued or floated so can work with whatever your needs are. Option one, ‘floating floor’, is achieved by gluing the tongue and groove parts of the board and allow the floor as a whole to float, usually cushioned with use of an underlay. Option two would be to secret nail the tongue part of the plank into a wooden subfloor. Finally, option three would be to stick the timber directly onto the subfloor with use of flooring adhesive. Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above for more information.

Each plank has a 4v Groove, bevelled edge giving each plank more natural definition individually. This floor can be sanded down up to 5 times however it shouldn't be necessary to do so for the first 15-20 years. And with our 25 year guarantee you can rest assured that your floor will retain its high quality look. The grade of this product is rustic meaning the planks have more knots and imperfections giving the floor a more natural approach. The rustic grade is the most popular grade in the wood flooring industry, especially when made with a Micro Bevel edge as the Raisin Walnut is.

Our Engineered Flooring can be installed in three different ways, so it depends on your joining method, the subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.

  1. 1. Floating Floor
  2. In a floating floor, the boards are joined to each other, instead of to the subfloor. If you have a click-joining floor, floating is the way to go. If not, you could still use this method by gluing the tongue and the groove joint together. Either way, we'd advise you to have underlay installed and prepped. We wouldn't recommend this method for tongue & groove parquet as it won't be as sturdy.

  3. 2. Gluing
  4. With this method, adhesive is applied to the top of the subfloor with a trowel and then the individual planks are laid on top. This is our favoured method for tongue & groove parquet flooring but isn't recommended for most click-fit boards. The exception to the rule is if you're installing your click-fit floor over underfloor heating. In this case, adhesive can help keep the floor stable with fluctuating temperatures and can reduce creaky floorboards.

  5. 3. Nailing
  6. With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Because of this, nailing is only suitable for tongue & groove floors, not click-fit. Professional fitters tend to prefer this method as the result is extremely secure. You'll need to fit a wood layer above any concrete because secret nailing cannot be done directly on top of a concrete subfloor.
