The Brimham Aged Whisky Oak is an antique solid oak flooring product which has been hand distressed to create an extremely old worn out look, boasting in many cracks, scrapings and knots. Once the planks have been through the intense hand distressing process, a dark lacquer is applied to the surface to colour and protect the product from any stains or spillages, however as this is a natural product we would always advise you to mop up any spillages or splashes as quickly as possible
To add further character and authenticity to the Brimham Aged Whisky Oak you will find 5 strips built into one wide plank of 203mm (20.3cm) wide, this is done to create more of a reclaimed look. The total thickness of this aged product is 18mm (1.8cm) thick so if you need to sand and refinish the flooring in the future this can be implemented approximately seven times, giving the flooring an extremely long shelf life.
Each plank comes in extremely long lengths of 2200mm (2.2m) allowing the flooring to be flow without many breaks and another advantage for having fixed long lengths is the installation time. However, in line with industry standards, fixed lengths products often have starter planks in each pack which may vary in length. The oak for this flooring along with all our other oak flooring products have been sourced from Europe simply because the European oak is the most superior oak on the market resulting in consistency and stability. Like all other solid wood flooring products this floor can be installed the usual ways as a floating floor, glued down to the subfloor or secret nailed to the sub floor. Before installing the solid wood flooring we would advise you allow the goods to acclimatise in room temperature for approximately 7 days and then lay the planks on a level sub floor, as this will prevent any unevenness once laid.. This aged hand distressed product comes with a 25 year manufacturers guarantee, so if the floor has any manufacturing errors of imperfections this will get resolved swiftly.

Our Solid Wood flooring can be installed in two different ways, so it depends on your subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.
- 1. Gluing
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 and groove parquet flooring.2. Nailing
With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. 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.
