This Chamonix Straw Oak Flooring features traditional chevron style planks that blend together beautifully. Hosting a bevelled edge there creates more distinction between each individual plank making each individual plank stand out.
Engineered oak flooring is perfect if you are looking to get a solid wood feel at a lower cost. Engineered flooring is more durable, easy to maintain but also doesn’t restrict you if you later wish to install underfloor heating in your home.
A lacquered finish is recommended if you're hoping to achieve a more subtle, calm feel as well as avoiding potential stains and scratches. Lacquered wood flooring has been created to preserve the woods original features by providing a film on top of the floor. Achieve a real wooden feel without the added worry.
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.
