Engineered flooring is an extremely popular choice of flooring and it’s easy to see why. Wood flooring presents us with a timeless, classical beauty that suits any interior and any style home. This Painswick Mist Oak 80 x 350 x 20/6mmis a beautiful example of engineered wood, presenting a graceful and versatile tone that will go with many different furnishing and interior themes.
This Mist Oak presents a herringbone pattern, something very on trend at the moment. Often chosen to give the ‘wow’ factor, this plank arrangement will make for a very luxurious and grand feel to your home, as it is often used in manor houses. The unique design will also give your room added character and create another dimension to your space.
Not only is engineered aesthetically pleasing but has its own impressive durability. It will withstand many years of high foot fall and heavy use, making it the perfect choice for rooms such as the hallway and living room. It is also resistant to scratch, water and stains; however, we’d clean up any spillages as soon as possible as they can cause damage if left for an extended amount of time.
However, don’t worry if the worst does happen. One of engineered wood’s huge benefits is that it is able to be sanded down, depending on its wear layer. This product has a wear layer of 6mm, meaning it can be sanded down up to five times! This does not normally need to be done for the first 15-20 years however, so you can only imagine how long these stunning floors can last for! On top of this, we’ve included a generous 25-year guarantee to give you peace of mind.
Perhaps the best benefit of engineered wood is its ability to withstand the fluctuating temperatures of under floor heating. This is something on the rise, so it is certainly worth giving yourself the option of it as it will help with the selling value of your home when it is time to move on.
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.
