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.

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.
