The soft oak tones of the Malham Wafer Oak are as light as wafer. The invisible oil finish leaves the wood in a natural-looking shade rather than other finishes that apply a coloured stain to the wood. The result is a modern and light look that will freshen up your space.

As well as feeling contemporary, the Malham Wafer Oak does keep some of its rustic charm – all down to those wide boards and subtle grains in the wood.

Engineered flooring features a solid wood top layer with a backing of sturdy layers of timber. This construction makes engineered oak flooring super durable and strong, and the 4mm wear layer gives you all the thickness you need for around 60 years or more. The oiled surface gives plenty of protection against scratches and spills and engineered wood floors can be fitted with underfloor heating too - ideal if you’re looking for living room or kitchen flooring.

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.
