Create a light and airy feel to your home with our Painswick Ghoul Grand Oak. Featuring the same characteristics of our gorgeous Painswick Ghoul Oak but with a larger plank size.
This parquet flooring is part of our herringbone collection. The iconic herringbone design shows the planks arranged in a fishbone style and is traditionally linked with grand homes due to the luxurious and class feel it exudes. This level of class is now achieved in more modern and contemporary homes when herringbone flooring is installed.
This floor features a larger plank size which showcases the woods knots and imperfections beautifully with more focus giving the floor a greater deal of character and warmth. The floor has also been lightly brushed and finished with an invisible oil giving each individual plank more texture, charm and authenticity.
Engineered flooring doesn’t just look amazing but it’s extremely practical too. Due to the way it is constructed, engineered flooring is durable, strong and water resistant which is perfect for those with a busy lifestyle where spillages are fairly common. Engineered wood has the ability to withstand fluctuating temperatures which makes it the perfect option if you’re looking to install underfloor heating.
This flooring can be installed through three different ways. Floating floor nailed down or glued. Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above for more information
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.
