This Chamonix Plover Oak 90 x 750 x 15/4mm flooring is a part of our Engineered Wood Range. 

Oak will make your home look sophisticated thanks to the naturalistic colour. Many affluent homeowners opt for a shade such as this to enrich the value of their home, while still allowing their rooms to not be dingy or dark. Many people like flooring that doesn’t appear too shiny but still with the protection from stains and scratches. This is why lacquered matt is perfect if this is you. We’d recommend this finish if you’re looking for a more subtle, calm look.

Engineered flooring is also a good choice when you come to sell. Not only will it look attractive to potential buyers, but it will add tremendous value. A lot of people are moving towards underfloor heating, which is something engineered flooring will accommodate without issue, due to it being resistant to warping or shrinking under the heat.

Engineered flooring is extremely durable, however, lacquer has been created to preserve the floor's original exquisiteness. This clever method will prevent stains seeping into the wood if spillages occur, consequently, it's a suitable choice for bath, dining rooms and kitchens. Lacquering creates a film on top of the floor, meaning you can still enjoy the genuine wooden look without worry.

The brushed effect can disguise scratches, so if you have pets with sharp claws or children then this is a sensible option! However, if the worst does happen then the wear layer of 4mm means it can be sanded down up to three times. This would not need to be done for at least 15-20 years, so you can be safe in the knowledge that your investment will be worthwhile.

The elegant bevelled edges allows the floor to keep its naturalistic appeal while still enjoying the benefits of a protected finish. This edge means that the break between the planks is more distinct, so if you’re looking to add another dimension to your room then it is the fitting option.

The diagonal chevron planks are very fashionable; so, if you’re into the interior trends, this product will not disappoint. Again, this flooring is known as a classic grade which means that the natural variation of wood is preserved through the finish so you can enjoy the oak's original beauty.

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. 1. Floating Floor
  2. 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.

  3. 2. Gluing
  4. 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.

  5. 3. Nailing
  6. 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.
