New Engineered Oak Flooring Range

20th Apr 2010 @ 12:31

We've been supplying more than just Character grade engineered oak flooring for a while now but the website hasn't reflected this - until now!

Our full range of engineered oak flooring is now displayed from Barn grade through to Prime grade so be sure to check it out.

It's worth mentioning here that our engineered flooring is made specifically for us - we don't buy from standard wholesalers.

This allows us to control the quality of the flooring and to make sure that it always complies with our strict requirements.

For instance, if you look at the plyboard backing on our engineered oak boards, you won't find low quality lightweight softwood, roughly cut and covered with splinters. Our plyboard backing is strong - it needs to be for gluing to subfloors.

We don't fill the knots or cracks in our engineered flooring with hideous resins or plastic fillers either. To us, an engineered oak floor should look identical to an equivalent solid oak floor, shakes and all!

Finally, each of our grades of flooring (solid or engineered) are hand selected - that's right, we look at each board supplied to us from Europe and grade it by eye.

It's no wonder so many people buying oak from on-line discount flooring retailers end up disappointed - most of their flooring packs are sold unopened, just as they arrived from China.

Anyway, enough ranting, give us a call on 01538 304584 and get over to see our flooring in all its glory - we'll prove our flooring's better.

We would always recommend gluing engineered oak flooring to a concrete sub-floor using a <a href="[link awaiting verification]; rel="nofollow">flexible wood floor adhesive such as Proflex MS Polymer</a>.

Here's a couple of reasons why:

1. If you're laying over underfloor heating, you want as close a bond as possible between the oak floor and the subfloor for maximum heat transmission - if there's an air gap, you get dramatically less heat transfer into the wood and then into your room.

2. A floating floor can give a slightly "bouncy" feel when you walk on it. In our opinion, an oak floor should feel solid.

Hope this helps!
