V4 Smokehouse Grey Engineered Oak Flooring, Rustic, Stained, Brushed & Hardwax Oiled, 190x15x1900 mm is a tongue and grooved board which can be installed as a floating floor on underlay or fully bonded with floor adhesive to the subfloor.
This floor is finished with coats of hardwax oil which keeps the hardwood surface protected from stains and wear whilst maintaining natural look and feel.
The oak top layer is lightly brushed to form a relief of the natural grain. Lye is then hand applied to the oak surface which reacts with the natural acids in the wood and bleaches the surface preventing the oak from discolouring. The result is a textured surface to which layers of colour oil are applied to create deep lustred boards with a distinctive grain.
Flooring must not be exposed to excess heat such as from hot water pipes below floors.
To achieve the desired mix of colours, shades and other characteristics in the final floor, and to avoid clusters of characteristics as knots, the contents of multiple packs should be mixed during installation.
Engineered wood flooring may be installed as a floating floor, which means that the boards are joined together and loose laid over the subfloor, instead of being fully bonded with adhesive or secret nailed. It can be installed direct to concrete or sandcement screed sub-floors or to suitable wood based sub-floors by fully bonding with a purpose made permanently flexible adhesive.
