This Elgin Herd Oak engineered wood flooring is guaranteed to make a statement in your home. For a distinctive look that embraces tradition and works with a range of home décor, this is the perfect choice. As our engineered floors are compatible with underfloor heating and have a durable solid wood top layer, they’re ideal for busy family homes and are suitable for most rooms.
With a brushed surface and an UV oiled finish this floor retains all the natural texture of wood and guarantees an authentic look with the bevelled edges adding the dimension you’d expect from traditional wooden floors. This Elgin Herd flooring beautifully showcases all the natural knots and textures of the wood with its rustic grade and earthy, light brown colour palette.
Maintenance is easy as you’re able to re-oil your floor as needed and with the 6mm wear layer, it’s possible to sand and refinish these floors 5-6 times.
Produced in 220 x 20/6mm planks with fixed lengths of 2200mm, these floors can be installed by a variety of methods including floating, nailing, or gluing down, utilising the tongue and groove joining method. See our detailed installation guides for more information.
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.
