Each individual plank has a rustic grade. This means that each plank has a uniqueness to it, showing sunken knots and imperfections this is perfect for those wanting to achieve a more natural and authentic look in their home.
Engineered wood flooring is fashioned in a way that makes it extremely durable. The top layer is hardwood bonded with a heavy birchply base which means you can still have a solid wood flooring at a fraction of the cost and maintenance.
This product hosts a more neutral style. The shade is lighter in appearance making it perfect for any modern and contemporary home. Choosing a lighter shade is known to visually enlarge a room, so if you’re looking to make the most of your space this is the perfect flooring for you.
This product can withstand fluctuating temperatures; this means it is suitable for underfloor heating. Underfloor heating is becoming a more desirable feature to homes which adds value if you do end up selling your home.
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.
