We need to fix solid oak flooring probably Barn Oak to a Limecrete screed. Can you recommend a permeable adhesive which would be suitable to maiintain the breathablity of the floor.

Hi Alan,

If you intend to fit our barn grade solid oak flooring to your subfloor, for the glue down method we would not recommend a board any wider than 120mm in width. For wider boards, we would recommend opting for engineered oak flooring.

With regards to the adhesive, our usual MS Polymer would not be suitable for this because of its rubberised nature. If you wanted to give us a call we could perhaps discuss in more detail the various fitting methods available.

I'm thinking of laying a solid oak floor on a first floor with underfloor heating - is this a bad idea? - I'm worried about warping etc. I know that engineered plank would be better, but could I nail that to the joists?

Hi Chris,

For laying over an underfloor heating system we would recommend using engineered oak flooring rather than solid. Engineered oak flooring is designed to be more stable in changeable conditions.

As for fitting, yes engineered can be fitted in same ways as a solid oak floor. We would normally recommend our Spax 3.5 x 55mm Screws for fitting into joists.
