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.
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.
