Introducing the Elgin Blackberry Oak.
Natural, rustic and full of charm, the Blackberry Oak will take you to a country cottage after blackberry picking on a sunny evening. The extra wide planks add to the traditional cottage feel and would look stunning in a large space such as a living room or dining room. The bevelled edges make a feature of the width of the boards.
The finish of this engineered board is smooth with a layer of oil to give the real wood veneer some protection. This floor is outstanding quality with a 20mm thickness and 6mm wear layer, meaning you’ll be able to sand and refinish this floor multiple times over its 60 year plus lifespan.
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.
