Engineered wood floors last a life time thanks to their unbeatable durability. Not only does it last for generations but also attracts less dirt and dust than materials such as carpet, perfect if someone in your household has allergies. Very easy to keep clean as well, with only needing a sweep and a mop a few times a week to keep it hygienic. It is also resistant to scratches, stains and water - however we’d recommend thinking twice about laying it in rooms that see high exposure to these as they can cause damage.
However, if the worst does happen don't panic. This Painswick Paradise Oak 80 x 300 x 10/3mm is able to be sanded down up to three times due to the generous 3mm wear layer, which will eradicate any damage and general wear and tear.
Wood has been used on floors for generations and its popularity is only increasing. The gorgeous natural grains and knots flow beautifully throughout giving your home a beautiful authentic appeal. This product shows off a herringbone arrangement, often chosen to give the wow factor and a luxurious feel to your space. This pattern is widely used in grand houses and you can certainly replicate this look in your own home. We’d recommend this flooring in your hallway to give a grand first impression or add comfort to your living room with its warm honey tone.
This Paradise Oak boasts an ABC grade, also known as a classic grade. This means that the natural variation of wood is presented without them being over stressed, perfect if you want something with a bit of character but elegantly subtle. The brushed finish gives this flooring added texture and the bevelled edges creating an interesting break between the planks.
One of the main advantages engineered has over solid wood is its ability to cope with under-floor heating. This is something we are seeing more and more of in our homes, so it is certainly worth giving yourself the option of this as it will help with the selling value of your home when it is time to move on. We have also included a fantastic 25-year guarantee!
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.
