This smooth natural solid Brimham Morning Oak floor comes pre finished with seven coats of the finest pearl satin UV lacquer, sealing and protecting the natural product from any stains and spillages. This pearl satin lacquered finish, more or less makes the surface of the product water resistant, so if you do happen to have an accident this will simply just mop up without seeping into the surface, however as this is a natural product we would always advise you to mop up any spillages or splashes as quickly as possible. A pearl satin lacquer gives the plank a shinier surface than an oiled board which displays more of a matt effect.
90mm (9cm) is the width of this solid oak product which is deemed as a narrow plank, narrow boards are ideal if you are wanting to make a room look more spacious, as you can fit more individual planks inside the area required. The total board thickness is 18mm (1.8cm) meaning this product can be sanded and refinished up to seven times, giving this product on display and extremely long shelf life of over 100 years. The sanding and refinishing process usually happens once every 15-20 years.
The Brimham Morning Oakcomes in random lengths between 300-1200mm (30-120cm), so this will allow you to lay the flooring in a staggered natural pattern. This solid oak can be laid the three usual ways; secret nailed to the sub floor, fully glued down, or laid as a floating floor, where you simply glue the tongue and groove together. We would always recommend you install any solid wood flooring on top of a level sub floor. This will prevent the flooring from moving when walked upon. All our natural oak flooring products are sourced from European forests as the durability and consistency is second to none, therefore this allows us to offer a 25 year guarantee, giving you a complete piece of mind prior to purchasing.
The grade of this product is rustic often know as ABC, the product grading allows the end user to understand how many knots will appear on the surface. A rustic grade will offer quite a few knots and imperfections which is often seen as the main attraction when purchasing hardwood flooring.
If you require any matching accessories to help you complete, install or maintain your flooring, we offer a full range under the accessories section of the website.
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.
