The chevron plank style that encompasses this beautiful Chamonix Oak is aligned with some of the biggest interior design trends. This elegant design is perfect for creating a modern yet contemporary look bringing your space to life.
Engineered oak flooring has grown in popularity in the recent years as an alternative to solid wood. Composed with multiple layers of compressed timber and a solid wood top layer, engineered wood flooring is easy to maintain, durable and perfect for those wishing to achieve an authentic solid wood look.
This wood is unfinished, this means there has been no finish applied to it leaving the wood raw. Unfinished engineered wood flooring is popular with those who are still choosing their preferred finish and allows them to finish their flooring how they desire.
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.
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.
