Thorpe Prime Oak Herringbone 70 x 500 x 22mm Unfinished – product code PAR208 - has a total thickness of 22mm with a width of 70mm. This product comes in fixed lengths of 500mm and comes in parquet style blocks that are 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 prime, eliminating any knots of imperfections, so if you are looking for a clean board, this is the product for you. This floor should not be 'floated' as the planks could be lifted, which is why it is best to glue your solid wood floor. The glueing method works by the planks being stuck directly onto the subfloor with use of flooring adhesive.Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above for more information or call us to find out more.

Solid wood floors last a life time thanks to their incredible durability. Not only does it look stunning, but solid wood floor also attracts less allergens, dust and mould making it a hygienic flooring choice too. Additionally, solid wood floors are scratch resistant making them perfect for high traffic areas and will be able to retain its stunning aesthetic. Because of it's 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.
