V4 Foundry Steel Engineered Oak Parquet Flooring, Rustic, Distressed, Stained, Handfinished & UV Oiled, 90x15x360 mm can be installed fully bonded over any subfloor including importantly, those with underfloor heating systems.
Unlike traditional parquet blocks, this floor is engineered with a bevel-edged European Oak wear layer which is bonded to a hardwood ply base. this allows for versatile installations that can be bonded to any flat surface including those with underfloor heating systems. This floor has distinctive saw marks and distressing to the face and the bevelled edges which give the surface an aged aesthetic.
This floor is finished with coats of natural UV oil which keeps the hardwood surface protected from stains and wear whilst maintaining a natural look and feel.
Flooring must not be exposed to excessive heat such as from hot water pipes below floors. The subfloor is key to a successful installation and will help ensure your floor performs to its very best. The subfloor is likely to be either wooden or a cement-based screed.
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.
V4 Wood Flooring is chosen for its natural beauty, therefore grading criteria is always an approximation as every piece of timber is different. Engineered wood flooring may be installed directly to concrete or sand-cement screed sub-floors, or to suitable wood-based sub-floors by fully-bonding with a purpose-made permanently flexible adhesive.
To achieve the desired mix of colours, shades and other characteristics in the final floor, and to avoid clusters of characteristics such as knots, the contents of multiple packs should be mixed during installation.
Avoid grouping similar colours and grain pattern by not mixing the planks before installation areas of dark and light planks can look patchy and out of place.
