Bibury Chalk White Distressed 220 x 15/4mm Engineered Oak Wood Flooring is 15mm thick with a 4mm wear layer which comes in fixed lengths of 2200mm. This product has been given a truly amazing, distressed look with large knots and blemishes. The oil is then applied to each plank before lightly brushing. The low shine finish makes for a low maintenance and highly durable floor.
Each plank has a bevelled edge giving each plank more individual definition and can be sanded down up to 5 times, however it shouldn't be necessary to do so for the first 15-20 years. The grade of this product is distressed meaning the planks have many knots and imperfections giving the floor much more natural character and authenticity.
The Bibury Chalk can be installed using one of two techniques. Option one would be to secret nail the tongue part of the plank into a wooden subfloor. Option two 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 below for more information.
Engineered wood flooring is made from layers of plywood stuck together and finished with a layer of lamella for that authentic look. Because of the way in which it is constructed, engineered wood floor is therefore able to withstand fluctuations in temperatures, so can be used with underfloor heating. As well as this, it can also be used in rooms such as basements and conservatories where there are noticeable changes in temperatures. Additionally, engineered wood flooring is easy to maintain and clean. However, as with any natural product, we recommend mopping up any spillages quickly.
