One of the best things about an engineered product over a solid wood is its ability to be used with underfloor heating. Unlike a solid wood floor, an engineered floor doesn’t expand and contract as dramatically as a solid wood does meaning you can safely install it with underfloor heating without worrying about causing any irreversible damage. Plus, as a Painswick product this floor has a 25 year guarantee meaning that you can rest easy in the knowledge that your floor will continue to bring quality to your home for years.
To install this floor nailing or glueing method should be used. For more information about these techniques, please see the installation tab above or visit our advise centre for in-depth and detailed descriptions about each to discover which one is best for you.
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.
