Plenty of choice
Since 1985 we have been supplying Traditional Solid Oak Planked Floorboards.
Solid oak planked flooring is often specified in period or listed dwellings and as they are fully load bearing are a preferred option when laid across joists. However most modern houses will tend to have a concrete slab/screed on the ground floor and not joists. This will not limit the installation of solid oak planked flooring as due to the advancement in technology this floor can be glued using Rewmar M.S Polymer direct to the suitably prepared concrete/screed subfloor with out increasing heights using chipboard and or battens.
We stock both unfinished character grade oak plank flooring, in various widths, random lengths, square shoulder, T/G and ends matched, which will require sanding and sealing on site - An ideal product in situations where a tint is required or the subfloor has unavoidable height discrepancies as the undulation created can then be sanded out making the surface flat and level without comprising any beveled edges.
Our pre-finished oiled character grade oak plank flooring has a micro bevel on four sides, random lengths, T/G and ends matched, filled, sanded and sealed with one coat of oil, however we strongly recommend a second coat of OSMO Poly-X oil is applied after installation. This product range reduces time and labour on site and is extremely successful when fitted to a chipboard subfloor.
To compliment our solid oak planked flooring range we offer unfinished Engineered Oak Flooring. The Continental range offers two widths and has a 6mm character grade European oak tread which is then glued to a 15mm multi layer birch ply backing. The boards are random lengths, T/G and ends matched and the longitudinal lengths are micro beveled. Each board is filled and sanded ready for light polishing to remove installation marks and sealing using OSMO Poly-X oil on site.
The Legacy is as per the Continental in its specification with the exceptions of the bevel which is a 4mm V groove, giving real definition to the board dimensions which gives the old traditional planked look but with a modern construction required of today’s installations and also the 6mm wear layer is French oak. This offers a more rustic charm of both warmth with deeper browns and larger figuring.
Once fitted our engineered oak flooring is visually indistinguishable from the oak solid planked flooring but will offer consistent stability particularly when used over water based under floor heating and is with out doubt a preferred choice of product in more challenging environments, such as conservatories.
The engineered oak flooring products we stock are not floating floors they will require fitting as per the solid oak planked flooring.
