Our Studley Immaculate Oak 190 x 14/3mm Wood Flooring has a total thickness of 14mm with a 3mm solid hardtop wear layer. This product comes in fixed lengths of 1860mm, which is in line with industry standards; our fixed length products have starter boards to help reduce waste.
This product has a lacquered finish which is what gives the plank such a smooth, shiny surface. In addition to its shimmering appearance, the flooring is really easy to clean and maintain which makes it ideal for busy homes and areas with high foot traffic.
Each plank has a 4V Groove, bevelled edge giving each plank more definition individually. This floor can be sanded down up to 3 times however we would not deem this necessary to do for the first 15-20 years
The grade of this product is prime, which is the highest grade when it comes to wood flooring. Due to the way that the wood is cut it is uniform in its appearance and there are little/no knots of imperfections, so if it's a clean board that you're looking for then this is the product for you.
We offer free samples on all of our products, so if you like what you see but aren't 100% then why not order a sample to really get a feel for the floor and see how it would fit within your home.
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.
