The Painswick Delicate Oak is an excellent addition to our engineered wood range. In a stunning herringbone parquet style, this is a great choice for any home. This floor is stunning in a living room or entrance as well as being great in dining rooms and kitchens as it’s compatible with underfloor heating as with all our engineered wood flooring.
The Delicate Oak comes unfinished so will need treating at home to keep the wood protected. This is perfect for people who have a particular style or colour in mind as you’ll be able to finish this in whatever oil, lacquer, or stain you like, fully personalising your floor and making it your own. Or you might prefer to finish it in an invisible oil to keep that natural look.
Each plank is 400mm long with a width of 90mm and a thickness of 18mm. This includes the 4mm wear layer, allowing you to sand and refinish your floor multiple times. The prime grade of the product ensures a clean, sophisticated look with few knots and very little colour variation.
With a tongue and groove joining method this floor can be installed through gluing to the subfloor, or nailing down. See our detailed installation guide for more information.
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.
