Elgin Rural Oak 190 x 20/6mm Unfinished has a total thickness of 20mm with a 6mm solid hardtop wear layer and comes in fixed lengths of 1900mm. This product is unfinished allowing the end user to finish it to how they desire, over recent years self finishing has become more popular as there are now many different oils and lacquers on market, which offer more precision to meet certain requirements.

Each plank has a micro bevelled edge giving each plank more definition individually. This floor can be sanded down up to 7 times, however, it shouldn't be necessary to do so for the first 15-20 years. The grade of this product is rustic meaning the planks have more knots and imperfections giving the product much more character and warmth. The rustic grade is the most popular grade in the wood flooring industry.

Engineered floor doesn't only look gorgeous, it is also incredibly practical too. Engineered flooring, unlike some other flooring, is able to endure fluctuations in temperatures. Because of this, it is also suitable for use with underfloor heating and can be used in rooms such as conservatories and basements without perishing.

The Elgin Rural Oak can be installed using one of three techniques. Option one, ‘floating floor’, is achieved by gluing the tongue and groove parts of the board and allow the floor as a whole to float, usually cushioned with use of an underlay. Option two would be to secret nail the tongue part of the plank into a wooden subfloor. Finally, option three would be to stick the timber directly onto the subfloor with use of flooring adhesive. Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above 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. 1. Floating Floor
  2. 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.

  3. 2. Gluing
  4. 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.

  5. 3. Nailing
  6. 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.
