Not only is real wood flooring pleasing to look at, but also has impressive resilience to heavy domestic use. It will last years looking as good as the day you bought it without showing wear. Therefore, you should have no concerns placing it in areas that experience high foot traffic. Not only this, but due to the nature of how engineered wood is constructed means it is able to cope with fluctuating temperatures - therefore under floor heating is possible.
Engineered wood is stain, water and scratch resistant, however we’d recommend cleaning up any spillages as soon as possible and think twice about laying it in rooms that see more exposure to this. If you are aware of these, then there’s no reason you can’t enjoy it in any room.
However, if the worst does happen then don’t panic. This flooring boasts a 6mm thickness, meaning it can be sanded down up to five times, ideal if a scratch or a stain does occur. This should not normally need to be done for the first 15-20 years, so you can only imagine how many years you’re going to get out of this stunning floor.
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.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.
