What engineered wood flooring?
Wickes should be decent stuff. I fitted 35sqm of floors to go, solid engineered type oak in December. it was surprisingly good stuff actually, tongue and groove rather than ‘ click lock’ type. I glued the whole l lot down rather than nailed or screwed as out was a solid floor. I used sika adhesive, I’d recommend a big extractor fan in the doorway though. despite having front and back doors open, after the first day I probably shouldn’t have driven home! in bed that night, Mrs TFM complained that I still stank of fumes on my breath!!!
customer supplied the wood, think they paid around 20psqm ishPosted 4 years agofreeagentMember
I’m interested in this as well, I’ll need approx. 50sqm of it in the near future.
Looking for plain unfinished Oak so I can wax it to suit…
Its going straight onto a solid concrete floor, not sure what I need to put underneath?
What sort of money do I need to spend to get something nice??Posted 4 years agojoolsburgerMember
About five years ago I got a oiled solid oak floor from these guys http://www.ukflooringdirect.co.uk/?kw=uk%20wood%20flooring%20direct&mt=p&gclid=CNjVgtSgsbgCFQ_LtAodKgwAuw
Really excellent quality and pretty good value. In terms of laying it -Skirting came off ( I replaced with larger skirting so no need to redecorate) membrane of some sort down, laid a thin ply floor on top of that , then glued the oak to it with flexible uber floor glue.
It has lasted really well and as it’s oiled can just sand and re oil when the time comes.Posted 4 years agotthewSubscriber
I laid Wickes engineered wood floor a few years ago, still looks great. Pretty sure the top veneer is thick enough for 2 goes at sanding too, so should last years, (assuming the spec’s not changed since)
The only problem I had with it was getting it clicked together. It didn’t click like I’ve done cheaper Laminate before, where you slot in at an angle then push it home/flat. It was hammered home like tongue and groove, but there was a locking profile and some bits needed some right battering to properly close up.
Unless I was doing it wrong. 😕Posted 4 years ago
