Westco Brushed & Lacquered Oak Solid Wood Flooring 116mm/15mm Details...

This solid wood flooring by Westco is brushed and lacquered and is an excellent choice if you love the warmth and elegance of authentic wooden floors.

These planks come in random lengths. So you can install them in any area irrespective of the space available. They are 15mm thick and measure 116mm in width. Each plank's length ranges from 300mm to 1200mm.

The floors are made of solid oak, one of the most popular forms of solid wood. The surface is lovingly brushed to enhance all the beautiful patterns, knots and grains that oak timber is famous for. You can revamp the surface and sand it if it loses its sheen or suffers some damage.

However, that won’t be necessary if the floors are well maintained as the lacquer layer on the surface delivers visual appeal as well as protection. The lacquer coating makes the surface resistant to scratches and abrasions. They are perfect for busy families, families with pets or kids or any commercial space that experiences heavy footfall.

The floors are easy on maintenance too. Regular dusting and weekly vacuuming will keep them dirt-free. If you spill something accidentally, simply mop the floor to prevent staining. The lacquer coating will keep liquids from penetrating the surface.

These robustly constructed floors can withstand fluctuations in humidity and temperature. In fact, they are suitable for most living spaces including kitchens and conservatories.

Installing the Brushed & Lacquered Solid Wood is easy and simple with the glue-less installation system. The planks are fitted together to give you a sturdy and seamless floor underfoot.

We have plenty of other solid wood floors in different shades and sizes if this isn't what you were looking for.

Flooring Installation Methods

If you are installing a wood floor at your home/office for the first time, chances are you are finding the installation company’s technical terms difficult to understand. You could always ask the salesperson to explain it in simpler terms. It doesn’t hurt though to educate yourself about the different installation methods. This way, the whole process will be easy to handle.

Click and Lock Method

Lifestyle Flooring Click and Lock Method Floor Installation

In this method, adjoining wooden floor planks are folded and clicked into place, and firmly locked into position. The click and lock technology does away with messy adhesives, nails and screws.

This method is normally used for engineered and solid wood floors. The simple joint-making system makes installation simpler, faster, better and easier.

The But Up Method

Lifestyle Flooring The But Up Method Floor Installation

Used for vinyl floors, this is a glue-based method in which tiles are glued to the floor. The tiles need to be in correct alignment with the floor to get the final arrangement right.

This method of installation makes the floor tolerant to heavy foot traffic and other solid impact. For this reason, the But Up method is commonly used in residential and commercial flooring.

Another advantage to this method is that it allows for easy floor-laying in future. So, if you want a new vinyl floor on the existing one, simply place the tiles one-by-one on the existing ones.

Tongue and Groove Method

Lifestyle Flooring Tongue and Groove Method Floor Installation

Flooring planks are cut to feature grooves and tongues on all four sides. A tongue is a protruding edge and a groove is a hollow created to receive the tongue. A tongue-and-groove joint results in an intact arrangement leaving no gaps.

A sub-floor is necessary in this type of installation. Screws or nails, hidden neatly from view, or glue, are used to settle the floor in place. This method is usually employed for engineered and solid wooden floors.

The Floating Method

Lifestyle Flooring Floating Method Floor Installation

This method is like a jigsaw puzzle where pieces interlock and form their own picture without touching the surface on which they are placed. In Floating method, wooden planks interconnect and lock into position with each other, and not to the subfloor.

The resulting floor is soft to the touch and more comfortable.

No matter the method of installation, be sure to invest in high quality flooring for best results. Lifestyle Flooring has been supplying superior quality floors of all types for 35+ years. We cater to commercial and residential flooring needs throughout the UK.
