Stay on trend with this gorgeous Painswick Syrup engineered wood flooring. Add a little luxury into your life with the implied elegance and style of a parquet floor. Engineered wood is a great choice for flooring as it’s such a versatile product and is suitable for most rooms of the house. It’s also durable and will last for decades if well-maintained.
With a smooth texture and a lacquered finish, the Painswick Syrup simply dazzles and shines. It’s also low maintenance – the finish adds some protection from scratches and can be sanded and refinished as needed, although you shouldn’t need to do this for at least the first 15 years of your floor’s life.
With a solid wood top layer, engineered floors are almost impossible to distinguish from solid wood, with the added benefits of their ability to adapt to changes in heat. This means the Painswick Syrup is compatible with underfloor heating.
It comes in a fixed length of 400mm, a width of 90mm and thickness of 18mm. The Painswick Syrup is fitted with a tongue and groove joining method and can be installed either through gluing to the subfloor, or nailing down. See our detailed installation guide for more information.
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.
