The Malham Pastry Oak comes in a lovely light oak shade with medium brown undertones that make this floor feel warm and welcoming. The combination of the wide boards and rustic grade wood with all its grains, knots and unique natural markings, give this floor plenty of farmhouse charm. The lovely natural oak shade means this floor will fit in a home with any décor style and will really steal the show in a large space like a living or dining room.
The smooth surface and lacquered finish of this wooden floor gives a lovely shine to the wood as well as giving a protective coating that helps to reduce any scratches and scuffs and can protect against any spills. Engineered wood flooring is a brilliant alternative to solid wood as it looks exactly the same once fitted but does have added sturdy layers of timber underneath the surface that make it suitable for underfloor heating – perfect for those winter months.
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.
