Thorpe Oak Herringbone 70 x 350 x 18mm Unfinished – product code PAR2003 - has a total thickness of 18mm 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 rustic, meaning the planks will have natural knots. 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 its 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.

If you’re looking to install solid or engineered wood flooring by hand, here are a few things to bear in mind:

Tongue and Groove vs Click

Before you purchase your solid wood flooring, check which installation system it uses. There are two main types: ‘Tongue and Groove’ and ‘Click’.

• Tongue and Groove is more traditional, ensuring dimensional stability and strength. Along one edge, a ‘tongue’ protrudes from the centre of the board, whilst on the other, an indented groove is cut into the wood. This allows each board to fit together securely.

• Click installation is quick and hassle free. Like tongue and groove, click boards fit together, however, the click method allows the boards to lock into place, snapping together with a single movement.

Fixing

Fixing your flooring to the subfloor will encourage a long lifespan and minimal movement. Both Tongue and Groove and Click boards can be fitted this way, however, it is more popular with the former.

Depending on the material of your subfloor, boards can be fixed in a variety of ways. For solid surfaces such as concrete, adhesive is applied directly under the board. For wooden subfloors, the boards can be ‘secret nailed’ along the tongue. Both methods are equally beneficial, giving you outstanding results.
