Bibury Desert Distressed Oak 190 x 20/6mm is 20mm thick with a 6mm wear layer which comes in fixed lengths of 1900mm. This product is a bespoke product that is made to order. It has been given a truly amazing distressed look with large knots and blemishes, after this the oil is 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 every individual plank a authentic sense of definition. This floor can be sanded down up to 6 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.

The Bibury Desert Distressed Oak can be installed using one of three techniques. 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.

Thanks to the way engineered flooring is constructed the material is incredibly hard wearing. This means that it is perfect for using in kitchens, where exposure to dirt is quite common. Another property of engineered wood that is worth noting is the fact that is can be used in conjunction with underfloor heating. Where a solid wood would become damaged and cracked, engineered wood can expand and contract with the heat so not to damage the wood.

.

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 suitable for any type of click-fit boards.

  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.
