The Brimham Farmhouse Oak is a shiny natural European solid oak flooring product which has a total thickness of 18mm (1.8cm). 18mm is deemed as a standard thickness when it comes to solid wood flooring and it also allows you to sand and refinish the product approximately seven times, making your flooring look brand new again. This process is usually carried out once every 15-20 years resulting in the flooring having an extremely long existence, this is why wood flooring is often seen as a great investment.
The plank width is 150mm (15cm) and the lengths are random between 300-1200mm (30cm-120cm) allowing you to install the flooring in the ever so popular staggered pattern. Lengths which are random do minimise the amount of wastage you need to purchase. This solid oak flooring product has been carefully finished with seven layers (coats) of pearl satin UV lacquer totally sealing and protecting the surface from any wear and tear, making this product extremely durable, however as this is a natural product we would always advise you to mop up any spillages or splashes as quickly as possible.
The grade of this solid oak flooring is rustic meaning the planks will ooze with character showcasing some natural knots and imperfections. The joining profile on the product is tongue and groove meaning the planks will simply slide in together. There are three ways in which you can install this solid oak floor, the most popular would be to bond the flooring to the sub floor using an adhesive, secondly, just glue the joints together laying the floor just floating, and finally secret nailing the flooring to a wooden sub floor. All these methods are popular but one thing we would advise is to make sure the sub floor is level. This product is sourced from the finest quality forests out in Europe and comes with a 25 year manufacturers guarantee.
All matching profiles and accessories are available under the accessories tab on the website. So you can rest assured you can purchase all your flooring requirements from Luxury Flooring.
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.
