In a light brown colour, this Painswick Glistening engineered wood flooring is a captivating addition to any room. Engineered flooring is made out of different layers of wood, making it perfect for dealing with changes in temperature like underfloor heating. It’s also water-resistant making it a great choice for most rooms of the house including kitchens and dining rooms.
Engineered wood flooring is a great option in case you ever need to sand and refinish the product which you normally wouldn’t need to do for at least 10-15 years. The Glistening Oak has a 4mm wear layer so you’ll be able to re-sand this multiple times, making it last for decades.
The lacquered finish of this floor is dazzling and ensures solid protection for the wood in a beautiful prime grade. This will definitely add a luxury touch to your home.
With a fixed length of 400mm, 90mm width and 18mm thickness, this board will appear to lengthen the space it is fitted in. Fitting can be done by utilising the tongue and groove joining system, through either gluing or nailing.
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.
