The Brimham Antique Chocolate Oak is a dark rich chocolate stained solid oak flooring product which comes in the extremely popular hand scraped finish, allowing this product to ooze in natural beauty and texture. Hand scraped (distressed) finishes are designed to create an old authentic look due to the ridges the hand scraping creates on the surface but once this product has been hand scraped we then apply seven coats of pearl satin UV lacquer allowing this flooring product to adapt to both a contemporary and traditional interior.
This thickness of each plank comes in 18mm (1.8cm) giving you the ability to sand and refinish the flooring approximately seven times, this process is usually carried out once every 15 years. The plank width is 125mm (12.5cm) and lengths of each board varies from 300-1200mm (30-120cm) allowing you to lay the planks in a natural staggered pattern minimising any wastage.
Every plank has a micro bevel which gives each plank more individual recognition allowing its beauty to be noticed, with square edge products the planks just blend into one another making the natural details less prominent. All our oak is carefully sourced from Europe allowing us to offer the highest and most consistent quality of oak available resulting in us being able to offer a 25 year manufacturers guarantee. The grading of this chocolate hand scraped flooring product is ABC meaning the planks will offer some natural knots and imperfections giving the flooring product much more warmth and character.
We understand it is necessary to get all your flooring and flooring accessories from the same place, so you can guarantee the quality and the match. We therefore offer a full range of matching accessories such as beading and profiles to go around the edging and the door ways, underlays and adhesive to help you install the flooring, and many other maintenance products, so you can rest assured we have you covered.
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.
