Our Elgin Vineyard Oak Wood Flooring measures 190mm wide, comes in fixed lengths of 1900mm and has a total thickness of 20mm with a 6mm solid hardtop wear layer. Each plank has a 4V Groove, bevelled edge which adds definition to the planks.
This product is lightly brushed and finished with a lacquer. This lacquer provides an incredible layer of protection against spillages and stains and creates a beautiful golden finish. However, if damage does occur, don’t panic! Thanks to the incredible 6mm wear layer that this product boasts, you are able to it sand down and refinish it up to 5 times. That being said, it shouldn’t be necessary to do this during the first 15-20 years after its installation. In fact, we are so proud of the quality and the durability of this product that we offer a fantastic 25-year guarantee.
This stunning flooring is rustic grade which means that the planks have more knots and imperfections in them. This adds plenty of character to the wood and is probably why this grade has become such a popular choice.
The flooring can be installed using one of three methods; floating, nailed or glued down. The choice is yours, but if you do need some assistance, we have a handy installation guide that is available to download from our website.
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.
