Using the correct glue and taking account of potential moisture are the key issues when installing this wood, in order to ensure it remains in good shape. It may require the use of a self-adhesive underlay but again this is depending on the subfloor. Brands supplied; Tuscan, Furlongs, Atkinson Kirby, Woodpecker, Parador and much more.
Buyers can choose between two ways of installing the wood, these being to either glue or secret nail it to the subfloor. Secret nailing is something used when your sub-floor is wooden ie floorboards, chipboard or even ply and is the only option. If your sub-floor is concrete then this is where you would use glue and if needed a chemical DPM to ensure that no moisture will affect the solid wood.
Why Engineered Wood?
Engineered floors are made up of several layers of ply with a wood veneer top.
Solid wood floors can in some cases be sanded more than engineered floors in order to extend the lifespan of the floor.
Solid wood flooring can add value to your home as it is a desirable product that many people would aspire to have.
