Originating in Europe, Chamonix Butterscotch Oak features a blend of rustic and traditional styles. The chevron plank design provides a continuous zig zag style pattern which pulls off a change of shade seamlessly. This timeless style brings to life to both residential and commercial spaces.
This engineered oak Flooring is easy to maintain, practical and one of the most durable choices of floorings without compromising its authentic appearance. This is known to be a popular choice with homeowners as with Engineered Oak underfloor heating is made possible.
The oiled finish provides a layer of protection increasing the longevity of this flooring. This style of flooring also comes with a brushed wood flooring finish to cover up any potential scratches. .
The total thickness of this product is 10mm with a fixed length of 750mm. The Chamonix Oak comes with a tongue and groove fitting mechanism. This joining method makes a range of different installation options possible including glued down or nailed.
Our Engineered Flooring can be installed in three different ways, so it depends on your joining method, the subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.
- 1. Floating Floor
- 2. Gluing
- 3. Nailing
In a floating floor, the boards are joined to each other, instead of to the subfloor. If you have a click-joining floor, floating is the way to go. If not, you could still use this method by gluing the tongue and the groove joint together. Either way, we'd advise you to have underlay installed and prepped. We wouldn't recommend this method for tongue & groove parquet as it won't be as sturdy.
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 & groove parquet flooring but isn't recommended for most click-fit boards. The exception to the rule is if you're installing your click-fit floor over underfloor heating. In this case, adhesive can help keep the floor stable with fluctuating temperatures and can reduce creaky floorboards.
With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Because of this, nailing is only suitable for tongue & groove floors, not click-fit. 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.
