Thorpe Prime Oak Herringbone 70 x 350 x 22mm Unfinished has a total thickness of 22mm with a width of 70mm. This product comes in fixed lengths of 350mm and comes in parquet style blocks 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 now many different oils and lacquers on market, which offer more precision meaning you can create your dream look with ease.
Each plank has a square edge giving each plank more individual definition. The grade of this product is prime, meaning the planks are exceptionally clean with no knots or imperfections. The Thorpe Prime Oak Herringbone is perfect if you're looking for a floor that has a clean and sharp look. This floor should not be 'floated' as the planks could be lifted, which is why it is best to glue your solid wood floor. The glueing method works by the planks being stuck directly onto the subfloor with use of flooring adhesive.

Solid wood floor is incredibly durable, lasting a lifetime. Additionally, solid wood floors attract less dust, allergens and mould making it not only a beautiful choice, but a hygienic one too. Thanks to the strength of solid wood flooring, it is also scratch resistant, so your floor will look stunning even in high traffic areas. Because of it's natural state however, it is not recommended that you use a solid wood floor with underfloor heating as it is unable to expand and contract with such fluctuations in temperatures. As well as this, the parquet flooring is a huge trend this year and is currently the favourite among interior designers. This means that installing as parquet style floor in your home would help to instantly modernise and bring some life to your floor.
Our Solid Wood flooring can be installed in two different ways, so it depends on your subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.
- 1. Gluing
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 and groove parquet flooring.2. Nailing
With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. 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.
