Fixing Your Oak Flooring
It is very important that you use an adhesive solution suitable to the job; the glue needs to be strong yet flexible enough to allow movement in the wood. Before applying the adhesive, please make sure that the sticking surface is dry. We recommend that you use a notched trowel to spread the adhesive evenly, push down flooring onto the adhesive, and then tapped up firmly against the previous board until they are fitting tight.
This method involves using a nail gun (or similar tool) to drive the nail/screw through the tongue of each board into the fitting surface. The tongue and fixing are then hidden by the groove of the next board.
Brad nails or cut nails are nailed through the face of the boards into the joist or sub-floor below. This is probably one of the oldest or more traditional methods of fixing oak flooring.
Finishing & Maintenance
There are a variety of different ways of finishing and maintaining your new oak flooring depending on personal taste; floors can be oiled in a range of different shades and colours to suit its surroundings. We’re always here to give advice at Blueprint Cottage Doors, so if you’re stuck for choice, please contact us today and we’ll be able to help you choose from a range of different finishes. Most oak floors are very easy to maintain with a simple sweep or a hoover once in a while to keep it dust and grit free. Wipe with a damp mop to keep them looking like new. For boards that have been finished using hard wax oil, there are a number of cleaning products available which have been specifically designed to maintain the look of your oak floor.
