Where To Use 14mm Solid Oak Flooring
Our 14mm solid oak flooring range has proved to be one of our most popular sellers. Not only is it indistinguishable from a thicker solid oak board once laid, the thinner cut of boards means that we are able to get more boards out of the same oak butt - resulting in a lower price to you! So where can these 14mm boards be used?
The 14mm thick boards have been designed to be used in areas with a timber subfloor. For example, if you have an area with an existing wooden subfloor, such as a pine floor, these boards can simply be fitted straight over the top. This saves the needs to remove the already laid wooden floor.
14mm boards are also used for areas with a plyboard subfloor. A common requirement we find nowadays is to replace a carpet which has been laid over plywood with oak flooring. These boards are perfect for this situation - being thick enough to provide stable flooring, whilst thin enough to replace a carpet and not lose important room height.
When fitting onto a timber subfloor, the most commonly used method is the secret fixing method. For this our main recommendation would be to use the Spax Screws, however the boards can be secret nailed if you do so wish. The great advantage of using Spax Screws is that they have been specifically designed for the fitting of solid wood flooring. The CUT narrow head means that you won’t split the wood as the screw goes in, and there is no need for pre-drilling. Being galvanised and yellow passivated, the screws will not rot in the oak.
14mm Solid Oak Flooring is available in a number of grades including our Grange and Legere grades. The Grange grade offers by far the most rustic of grades, with a range of knots, cracks and shakes. The Legere grade still has some knots and cracks, but is coupled with more areas of perfectly grained oak.
For March 2016 only, we are offering our 120mm wide Legere 14mm Solid Oak Boards as apart of our monthly special offer. More information on this offer can be found by clicking here.
