Create a bespoke and affluent look to your home with this striking Painswick Fresh Oak 80 x 300 x 10/3mm. Herringbone is often chosen to give the wow factor and has become increasingly popular in recent years and many homeowners are understandably falling for its unique charm. We’d therefore recommend this beautiful example of herringbone oak in your hallway to give a grand first impression or perhaps to create a luxurious look in your living room.
Wood is at the height of popularity at the moment and has been used on floors for hundreds of years. One of the best features of wood flooring is its amazing durability and will last for a lifetime if cared for properly. It is also scratch, stain and water proof, however we’d recommend cleaning up any spillages as soon as possible as they can cause damage if left for too long. Therefore, think twice about laying it in rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom.
If the worst does happen, then don’t panic! There is a way to eradicate any damage and general wear and tear. This product has a wear layer of 3mm, which means you can sand it down twice. This should not normally need to be done for the first 15-20 years, so you can only imagine how long these gorgeous floors can last!
This product presents an ABC grade, which means all the wood’s natural imperfections are preserved but not over stressed. This is ideal if you want something with plenty of charm and character while still remaining beautifully natural. This product comes unfinished, so this is something that you’ll need to complete yourself.
One of engineered wood’s most useful features is its ability to cope with the differing temperatures of under-floor heating. This is something solid wood cannot tolerate, so take this into account if it’s important to you! We’ve also included a fantastic 25-year guarantee!
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 suitable for any type of click-fit boards.
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.
