Bibury Golden Distressed Oak 220 x 15/4mm – product code OD7000 - is 15mm thick with a 4mm wear layer which comes in fixed lengths of 2200mm. This product has been given a truly beautiful distressed look with large knots and blemishes, the oil is applied to each plank before being lightly brushed. 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. 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. As well as this, the OD7000 comes with our 25 year guarantee so you can rest easy in the knowledge that your floor will look incredible for years to come. The grade of this product is distressed, meaning the planks have many knots and imperfections giving the floor much more natural character.
The OD7000 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.
The way in which engineered flooring is made makes it not only stunning, but practical too. This means that it is perfect for using in kitchens, where exposure to dirt is quite common. It is also compatible with underfloor heating as it is able to withstand fluctuations in temperatures which also means, unlike a solid wood floor, it can be used in rooms such as conservatories and or 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. Both click and tongue and groove 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.
