Wood flooring’s popularity has soared in recent years and it’s easy to see why. Not only does it look stunning, but is also incredibly durable and will last a lifetime if the correct care measures are taken. It is also resistant to scratches, stains and water, however we’d recommend keeping it away from rooms that see high exposure to this as they can cause damage if left. Wood flooring is also very easy to keep clean, with only needing a sweep and a mop – however we would recommend purchasing specialist floor cleaner.

One of the many advantages of solid wood is that it is able to be sanded down and refinished a number of times to eradicate any damage. This should not normally need to be done for the first 15-20 years however, so you can only imagine how long these beautiful floors can last for! We trust in the durability of our products so much that this one comes with a fantastic 25-year guarantee!

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.
