Advantages Of Engineered Wood Flooring

Posted by on November 22, 2013 at 1:36 pm. Filed under: engineered wood flooring

Wood flooring makes a beautiful addition to any household. It has a warm, timeless charm, is easy to maintain and offers excellent durability. However, quality wooden flooring can be expensive, especially if you are shopping on a budget. If you are looking for high quality flooring solution that is stylish and durable like solid wood floor, but at a more affordable price, take a look at engineered wood flooring.

What Is Engineered Wood Flooring And Why Everyone Loves It

Whether you are shopping on a budget or simply looking for a well priced flooring solution, engineered wood flooring can offer several benefits. How is engineered wood flooring made?

While solid wood flooring is exactly what it says it is, engineered floor is made from modern adhesives, which consist of a plywood base and a solid hardwood top. The plywood foundation adds durability and stability, while the hardwood top gives it an authentic look.

Top quality engineered wood flooring will look as good as solid wood flooring, and will even provide a few extra benefits solid floor doesn’t offer. It is one of the most cost effective options, and comes in a variety of styles and finishes. This flooring can also vary in thickness from 3/8″ to 3/4″. The thickness of the top layer will determine the price. The thicker the layer, the higher the price.

Benefits Of Engineered Wood Floors

As we have already mentioned, engineered flooring is ideal for anyone looking for quality at a more affordable price. Take a look at the benefits of engineered wood floors below.

Great price- Even though solid and engineered wood floors look exactly the same, engineered floor is much cheaper.

Durability- Depending on the thickness of top layer engineered wood flooring can last for decades. It is a solid investment and can even increase the value of your house.

Large choice- There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to engineered flooring, including staining, grain and more, so finding flooring to suit your interior is easy.

Moisture resistant- Engineered wood flooring is moisture resistant and can be installed in areas with higher moisture levels, such as bathrooms or basements.

Versatility- Engineered wood floor can be used throughout the house. Thinner planks can be used for walls or ceilings, and thicker planks can be used for floors.

These are only a few of the benefits of engineered wood flooring which has made it the number one floor choice for many household in the UK. Would you like to have engineered flooring in your home? Our industry experts at Nagle Flooring will be more than happy to consult and advise you.

Painting Tips For Your Hardwood Flooring

Posted by on November 19, 2013 at 8:00 am. Filed under: Solid Wood Flooring

House renovations are a great way to breathe new life into your home. Usually homeowners begin with their flooring when renovating their home. Hardwood flooring is a popular choice, but what can you do if you already have this type of flooring installed? Repainting is a great way to refresh the look of your flooring. Follow some of our simple tips for an easy repainting job you can carry out on your wooden floors.

Repainting Hardwood Flooring Made Easy

If you are considering giving your hardwood flooring a new lick of paint, take a look at the simple steps needed to repaint your hardwood floors.

  1. Decide on the colour which will suit your interior best. There are many options available, so having a clear idea will help when it comes to deciding on a colour scheme. You can also create quirky patterns, or let the grain of the hardwood flooring show by applying fewer layers of paint.
  2. Start preparations for the paint. You want to make sure that the surface of the floor is quite rough in order for it to grip the layer of paint. Make sure to carefully clean your flooring and sweep any debris, dust, small particles – anything that can make the paint uneven after you have sanded it. Then add the primer to your flooring that you plan to paint.
  3. This step is similar to the one mentioned above, only this time you need to sand your floors with an even coarser sand paper. Remove any dust with a vacuum cleaner and a damp cloth. However, be careful not to get the fibres of the cloth or mop stuck on the surface.
  4. Paint the floors in thin layers. If you have a solid paint colour, make sure the layers are thin; otherwise it will take longer for the paint to dry.
  5. Apply a layer of topcoat. After the coloured area of the floor has dried, add a sealant or a quality top coat to protect the painted surface.
  6. Allow your hardwood flooring to dry completely. Before you resume any activity, allow your hardwood floors to dry for at least a whole day without anybody stepping on it. Now you have a beautiful painted floor!

Painting your hardwood flooring allows you to update the interior of your home with wonderful results. Alternatively, if you want to go with something completely different, you could have new hardwood flooring installed.

If you are looking to refurbish your home and increase its value, choose quality hardwood floors. They can be installed in virtually any room of your home.

Hardwood Flooring Is A Green Flooring Alternative

Posted by on November 11, 2013 at 3:05 pm. Filed under: Solid Wood Flooring

Hardwood flooring is a valuable addition to any home, and a sustainable solution. Providing you with a completely environmentally-friendly option, it is a popular choice for many architects, designers and consumers.

It may seem that hardwood floors are anything but sustainable, as trees are being cut down to produce it. However, wood flooring is produced from trees which are managed in a sustainable manner, and are a renewable source.

Why Choose Eco-Friendly Hardwood Flooring?

If you compare hardwood flooring with floors that are produced from non-renewable materials, there is a clear difference. Other types of floors are produced in factories, which in turn require massive amounts of fuels. Consequently the air is polluted with CO2, as those fossil fuels are burnt to produce energy. Timber flooring, meanwhile, is an eco-friendly material, because it is oriented towards promoting sustainable forestry.

Research shows that trees used for timber flooring are grown at a higher rate than they are cut down, which further proves the sustainability of the wood material. In addition, hardwood flooring production emits less carbon dioxide, and uses less water and energy, making it an attractive choice for many homeowners.

Wooden flooring is also a durable type of flooring which can last through many generations. For this reason, once you have hardwood floors installed, you will not need to replace them often. However, if you do decide to replace your old wooden floors, they will not end up in the landfill. Instead, they will be used as a combustible fuel. Hardwood flooring is often chosen for its features that include longevity, simple maintenance, beauty and style. Environmentally friendly flooring can also provide you with a healthier environment in your home, and is a great choice for people with allergies and asthma.

Get Greener Hardwood Floors From Nagle Flooring

It may seem that wooden floors are expensive, but at Nagle Flooring you will find a wide selection of timber flooring at fantastic, affordable prices. If you are unsure about which type of finish you would prefer for your flooring, unfinished hardwood flooring is available. This allows you to finish your floors in any shade that you like, to suit your interior design.

Nagle Flooring – Your Source For Quality Wooden Floors

If you are looking for an environmentally friendly flooring solution, then choose sustainable floors from Nagle Flooring for your home. Hardwood floors are an ideal choice if you want to add charm and elegance to your home. What’s more, should you decide to move house later, solid wood floors can add value to your home, and help it to sell faster.

Wood flooring makes a great addition to any home. It complements a wide range of interiors, whether they are modern or traditional, and can increase the value of your house. Wood flooring is also durable, easy to maintain, and comes in a wide range of shades and patterns. If you are considering purchasing wood flooring, there are a few things you will need to bear in mind to make sure you are choosing the most suitable flooring for your home.

What To Know Before Buying Wood Flooring

  • • Species- every species of solid wood flooring has specific characteristics. The colour of the flooring depends on the part of the tree where the wood has been cut from as well as the species.
  • • Finish- wooden flooring is available in two types: pre finished and with a finish in place. Pre finished floors are already sanded, screened and stained by the manufacturers. However, pre finished flooring can still be recoated in your house to bring out its natural beauty. The term ‘finish in place’ means that flooring will need to be sanded, stained and finished after purchase. This allows for a greater level of customisation than with pre finished wood floors.
  • • Durability and maintenance- with wood flooring, you don’t have to worry about maintenance, as it is durable and easy to clean. Scratching can be easily fixed by sanding, and solid wood floors will retain their charm and warmth for decades.

3 Main Types Of Wood Flooring

Posted by on September 13, 2013 at 12:02 pm. Filed under: Solid Wood Flooring

Are you looking for wood flooring for your home? As there are many styles and types of wooden flooring on the market, choosing the perfect floor can be a challenge. For help with making the right solution for any room in your home, we have created a guide to the top 3 types of wood flooring.

Which Type Of Wood Flooring Do You Need For Your Home?

Wooden flooring is popular among homeowners because of its natural and elegant style. Available in various finishes and materials, wood floors can be selected to match almost any interior within your home. However, there is much more to choosing the right wooden flooring, than simply selecting a colour or wood type.

At Nagle Flooring we sell three different types of wooden flooring. All manufactured the highest of standards; each type delivers a stylish and hardwearing wooden floor for any room in your home.

  • Solid wood flooring. Typically each board is made from a single piece of wood which is 15-20mm thick. Available in Oak, Merbau, Walnut and Jatoba, our solid wood flooring is fitted using a tougue-and-groove system. Extremely durable, solid wood floors can be sanded back to restore the finish and remove scratches and dents. This can be done a number of times; depending on how deep the tongue is set. Solid wood floors can be laid in virtually any room with a consistent atmosphere. It is great for hallways and living rooms where you can really show it off.

    Did you know that no one will ever have same solid wood floor to yours? A solid wood floor gives your house a personality and exclusivity, as you won’t find another floor with the same grain anywhere else.

    Solid wood flooring is at the top end of the market, making it more expensive than laminate or engineered. Even though this type of flooring might cost you more, in the long run its durability will pay off.

  • Laminate flooring. Laminate flooring is a compressed fibreboard plank covered with a laminate, photographic image of the chosen wood glued on top. As a result of the way it is manufactured, some laminate wood floors are suitable for kitchens and bathrooms, as they do not swell like solid wood. It is great for living rooms, studies and playrooms.

    Available in a wide variety of imitation natural materials, laminate wooden flooring is cheap, hardwearing and easy to fit.

  • Engineered wood flooring. Engineered flooring is composed of three of four layers of wood which are bonded together. This type of wooden flooring has a 4mm real wood veneer on top, allowing you to gently sand it back and refinished if it becomes scuffed, worn or damaged.

    Stronger than laminate and more stable than solid wood, engineered wooden flooring is a good compromise on quality and price.

Find The Right Wooden Flooring For Your Home

Posted by on July 31, 2013 at 7:11 am. Filed under: Uncategorized

Choosing The Right Wooden Flooring

Upgrading the floor of your property with wooden flooring is a brilliant idea. The style, visual appeal, warmth and comfort that these floors offer is simply unbeatable. No matter what, these floors never lose their charm and make a great addition to your home. They are extremely durable, hardwearing and long lasting, offering more value for money. They are also perfect for busy people as they make cleaning and maintenance a breeze. You might be tempted to get your hands on wood flooring, but have you decided on which type will be the right match for your property? If your answer is no, then read on.

The world of wooden flooring is broken mainly into two types; namely solid wood floors and engineered flooring. While both look similar in appearance, functionally, there are a few differences. Discussing these will help you make a better decision on what to choose and what not to choose.

Engineered floors are produced by pressing and gluing few layers of hardwood. Each layer is stacked in a cross grain configuration and bonded together under heat and pressure. Solid wooden floors however, are made from a single piece of hardwood. Due to the cross grain configuration, engineered floors are more tolerant to moisture and not affected by changes in humidity. Thus they can be installed at all levels of a home or property. On the other hand, solid wood floors expand and contract with changes in humidity, making them unsuitable for areas of high moisture, such as the kitchen or bathroom. Engineered floors can be installed floating and glued down and are an appealing option for condominium units. Solid wood floors are not suitable for high rise buildings and are best for people living in single unit homes. Solid wood floors are much thicker when compared to engineered wooden flooring, which allows for more sanding if it becomes marred with use. Engineered flooring does not give much depth for sanding and also shows less tolerance to pet abuse when compared to solid wood floors.

Both these options of wood flooring have their own pros and cons and choosing between them will solely depend on where and how they are used. There are also decisions that you will need to make when it comes to choosing the type of wood and the type of finish. In terms of wood choice, there is a whole range of options, including walnut, oak, Jatoba, Merbau, etc., and the choice is completely yours. The two main finishes for wooden flooring are lacquer and oil. Your choice will depend on the overall look you are going for; if you want a smooth finish you can choose lacquer but for a more textured and natural finish choose oil.
