This Elgin Stratford Oak 190 x 20/6mm is a brown oak Engineered Floor. With a whitewashed, smoked appearance it’s a unique look which will introduce character in your home without overwhelming chosen décor or natural features. Working well in contemporary homes, this is a stylish choice.
As part of our engineered wood range this floor works well in most rooms of the home, being highly adaptable to temperature and high foot traffic. Our engineered wood is moisture resistant and can be used with underfloor heating.
The brushed surface of this engineered oak exposes natural quality to the flooring with a matt oiled finish highlighting the charm this treatment brings to the wood. Additionally, this finish protects the flooring ensuring durability, which you can be certain of with our 25-year guarantee. The 6mm wear layer of this engineered wood is extremely long lasting, allowing you to sand and refinish the wood multiple times, meaning your floors will last a lifetime.
With a straight plank style in random length planks from 400-1800mm your flooring will be truly bespoke with a tongue and groove joining method. The AB grade ensures a clean, chic, and simple elegance. Engineered wood can be installed in three distinct ways, either through a floating floor method which is very popular with DIY installers, gluing the floor, or through nailing (often a favourite of professional fitters). 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.
