If you’re looking for something that has plenty of features and a lot going on, but still keeping that rustic look then this flooring could be perfect. Engineered wood is ideal for practicality, as it is easy to maintain and one of the more durable choices of flooring. You can enjoy all these benefits while impressing anyone who comes into your home with its elegant, timeless magnificence.
This flooring pulls off a change in shade nicely. This can help pick up the darker and lighter décor your room may have. Despite it being a fairly busy, it is very easy on the eye and would look perfect in a hallway or living room. This flooring contains a bevelled edge, which means there is a little groove where the planks fit together, adding to the dimension.
Engineered flooring comes with an array of benefits, not just its pleasing appearance. It is a popular choice with homeowners due to underfloor heating being possible. This is a great investment as when it is time to move on, it will demonstrate as a good selling point to potential buyers.
Its oiled finish protects it well from the elements, with also giving it a bit of gloss. However, if your floor is unfortunately scratched, then the brushed finish is great at blending the scratch in, adding to the products lasting value. But if you do get a scratch that is obvious, its thick wear layer of 5mm means it can be sanded down up to 4 times, which isn’t even necessary for the first 15-20 years. So you can only imagine how long this floor is going to last, even if you decide to place it in high traffic areas! Once more, our 25 year guarantee is a real peace of mind.
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.
