Our newest addition to our Chamonix Oak collection is the Chamonix Oatmeal Oak.
This product hosts an iconic chevron style plank design. This historic pattern involves a V shape design occurring throughout and has been a key indicator of sophistication and elegance in it’s prime. To this day chevron style flooring has become increasingly popular due to the class it exuberates making it the perfect addition to any room if you’re looking to make a lasting impression.
The Chamonix Oatmeal Oak is a part of our Engineered Wood range. Engineered wood is seen as the perfect alternative if you are looking to achieve a Solid Wood look at a lower cost and maintenance. Engineered wood hosts a solid wood top layer with a plywood base making it durable, strong and easy to clean.
This product features a blend of beautiful smooth light tones, which has been known to visually enlarge a room. The product has also been finished with a lacquer which is highly recommended if you’re looking to achieve a more subtle and warming feel. Lacquered wood flooring preserves the natural features of the wood as a film is provided on top of the floor. This also helps when trying to avoid potential stains and scratches as it provides a protective layer.
This flooring has a tongue and groove joining method, this type of joining mechanism makes a range of installation methods possible including glued down and nailed. As this floor is also engineered wood, the possibility of installing underfloor heating is not ruled out as engineered wood can withstand fluctuating temperatures.
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 suitable for any type of click-fit boards.
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.
