Painswick Ghoul Oak 150 x 600 x 14/3mm Click Herringbone Engineered Oak Wood Flooring has a total thickness of 14mm with a 3mm hardtop wear layer and comes in fixed lengths of 600mm. This product is lightly brushed and finished with an invisible oil which gives the plank more texture and character. Each plank has a 4V Groove, bevelled edge giving each plank more individual definition and authenticity.
This floor can be sanded down up to 2 times however it shouldn't be necessary to do so for the first 15-20 years. The grade of this product is rustic, the industry's most popular choice, meaning the planks have more knots and imperfections that give the product a much better sense of character and warmth.
Engineered flooring doesn't just look amazing, it is also extremely practical too. Thanks to the way it is constructed, engineered flooring is water resistant, making it great to use in kitchens and rooms with higher traffic, where spillages and or exposure to water is fairly common. Engineered flooring is also able to withstand fluctuations in temperatures which means its compatible with underfloor heating, something that is increasingly popular in modern homes. This ability to endure temperature changes also means that this product can be laid in rooms such as conservatories or basements, where other flooring could damage itself. The latest technology has been used to create the invisible oiled finish of this product, so make sure you order your free sample today!
Thanks to its innovative 'click' system, this parquet floor does not require any glue for installation. Simply click the planks together and lay them on top of an underlay. It's that simple! For more information, please check out our dedicated installation guide.
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.Floating
Many fitters prefer floating their boards due to quick and easy installation. Floating does not require you to fix your flooring to a subfloor. Both click and tongue and groove planks can be fitted this way.
Adhesive is applied to the groove for added stability, and underlay is fitted underneath the board. This cuts down on labour, whilst ensuring that your boards are comfortable and strong underfoot.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.
