Our Elgin Bakery Oak has been added to the Luxury Flooring Engineered Oak Collection.

Engineered wood flooring is one of the most favourable choices of flooring due to the authentic real wood appearance and strength. The wood features a plywood base with a hardwood top layer, which means it is more durable, easier to maintain and easier to install that solid wood flooring.

The lightness of the wood brings out the natural knots and grains beautifully adding lots of character to the product. The wood has been finished with invisible oil which soaks deep into the grains and strengthens the wood.

One of the main benefits of choosing engineered wood flooring is that it can withstand fluctuating temperatures this means that installing underfloor heating is not ruled out. Underfloor heating has become increasingly popular over the years and adds value to your home if you’re looking to resell.

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.
