This product boasts an ABC grade, meaning the natural knots, grains and imperfections present a stunning rustic look to your floor. Rustic is extremely popular with homeowners, as so many of us enjoy the natural splendour of real wood. The calm, easy going colour of this flooring means it’ll suit different interior and colour themes. As well as this, it would suit both a contemporary and classical interior.
Herringbone is amongst the most popular style of flooring, due to its affluent characteristic premise. It will give your home a new lease of life, often chosen to give the wow factor. This is enhanced by the beautiful ashy tone, bringing a warm yet slick statement to your space.
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.
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.
