Painswick Shortbread Oak 150 x 600 x 14/3mm Click Herringbone Engineered Oak Wood Flooring has a total thickness of 14mm with a 3mm hardtop wear layer. This product comes in fixed lengths of 600mm and is unfinished allowing the end user to finish it to how they desire. Over recent years self finishing has become more popular as there are many different oils and lacquers on market, which offer more precision so you can create the exact look you're after.

Each plank has a 4V Groove, bevelled edge giving each plank more definition individually. This floor can be sanded down up to 4 times however it shouldn't be necessary to do so for the first 15-20 years, plus, this product comes with our 25 year guarantee so you can rest easy knowing your floor will look stunning for years. The grade of this product is prime, eliminating any knots of imperfections, so if you are looking for a clean board, this is the product for you. Additionally, the herringbone style is particularly popular right now and has been identified as a current trend for this year. The stunning look of herringbone can therefore immediately modernise your home and is an excellent choice to add some dimension to your floor.

Unlike solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring is able to endure higher levels of moisture exposure. It is also able to be used with underfloor heating as it is able to withstand exposure to different temperatures without damaging. Because of this you can enjoy engineered flooring in rooms such as conservatories and basements.

The Shortbread Oak can be installed using one of three techniques. Option one, ‘floating floor’, is achieved by gluing the tongue and groove parts of the board and allow the floor as a whole to float, usually cushioned with use of an underlay. Option two would be to secret nail the tongue part of the plank into a wooden subfloor. Finally, option three would be to stick the timber directly onto the subfloor with use of flooring adhesive. Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above for more information.

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.

Floating

Many fitters prefer floating their boards due to quick and easy installation. Floating does not require you to fix your flooring to a subfloor. Both click and tongue and groove planks can be fitted this way.

Adhesive is applied to the groove for added stability, and underlay is fitted underneath the board. This cuts down on labour, whilst ensuring that your boards are comfortable and strong underfoot.

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.
