Our Elgin Marmalade Oak has been added to the Luxury Flooring Engineered Oak Collection.
Engineered wood flooring is the perfect alternative for those who desire solid wood flooring but at a lower cost. Engineered wood has become increasingly popular over the years as it is extremely durable and hardwearing.
This product features a blend of lighter and warmer golden tones. These shades look perfect in any home whether you’re looking to achieve a more traditional look or wanting to add warm tones to a modern environment. The wood has been brushed and oiled which provides a protective layer increasing the longevity of the product.
One of the main perks of choosing engineered wood flooring is the ability to install underfloor heating. Underfloor heating has increasing in desirability over the years and adds value to your home if you are looking to sell.
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.
