Will European Oak flooring work best for your next project?
When selecting the grade of oak timber, it’s a simple case of asking yourself two questions.
One is whether or not the location of your property is likely going to have fluctuations in temperature and/or prolonged wet weather.
Second of all, whether or not you intend on keeping a raw look and feel to the finished floor.
If you’re perhaps considering engineered oak flooring, what thickness of floorboard is best for your project? The thickness of floorboards you choose can rely on lots of aspects.
If you have got under-floor floor heating, then, normally speaking, you should not set up something thicker than 15mm thick floorboards.
Engineered wood flooring should be able to withstand up to 4 re-sand & polish cycles throughout its lifetime. If you do not have underfloor heating, then any thickness of oak crafted flooring will work for you.
Generally, the thicker the top layer, the additional re-sands you’ll have the ability to do, which obviously suggests it’ll last longer.
So with many different tones and grade, we think European Oak is a floor choice hard to pass up on.
