Solid wood flooring can add warmth and splendor to a home and it is the most preferred floor covering which can increase the value of any home. At Nexus Flooring, we provide you the best solid oak flooring, which not only adds beauty to your home, but also assures you the robust flooring that survives for years without any issues.
In solid wood flooring, basically a single piece of wood made from timber, which is a compilation of wood from different trees, is used for flooring purpose. Irrespective of structural or artistic flooring, the material used is made up of a single piece of wood with thickness in the range of 12-20mm. 

Variety of color and options:
Apart from the standard size of the hardwood flooring, which three to four inches thick and two to three inches wide, they are now available in a variety of other sizes and colors. If you need a custom size then you can also order it and get it customized from a dealer. Red oak, white oak and maple wood are some of the most popular categories of solid wood floor.
Choosing a hardwood flooring style:
While choosing solid oak flooring, there are several tips that must be kept in mind. One such tip is to check the grade of the flooring that you are going to purchase. Wooden flooring is a natural product and thus it is not right to expect perfectionism from it. Therefore it is always recommended to buy 5-10 % more than your actual need.
Installing your new solid oak flooring:
If you are planning to install new solid oak flooring in the UK then there are several pointers that must be kept in mind. Even the solid flooring expands to certain level just after the installation process. Thus it is very important to leave the house four to five days before the installation. If this precaution is taken, the floor will easily settle down and there will be no issues of expansion later. In this type of flooring, a tongue and groove mechanism is used to fix the blocks of wood together. At the junction of two pieces, the tongue block will have a carefully carved T-shaped edge, which is fixed into the valley of groove block whose depth has to be exactly fitting to hold the T-shaped edge. These two pieces are fixed together by feeding the tongue into the groove. This type of joint is very strong with minimal use of adhesives because of the mechanism used for the joint. The number of times o can refurnish the floor depends on the depth of the tongue block.
Ideal areas for the installation of solid flooring:
Hardwood flooring is highly sensitive to moisture and starts expanding or shrinking. Thus it is not recommended to install the hardwood flooring in areas where the moisture is high or that remains wet most of the time. Most of the solid flooring is nailed down and only a few exceptions are there in the market that offers the facility of gluing the floor to the ground below. Thus the hardwood flooring can also not be glued or fixed directly over the concrete.
Advantages of solid oak flooring:

  • Solid flooring can be re furnished as many times as possible and thus can last for as long as 100 years which is a true investment for your house.
  • Hardwood solid flooring is a valuable addition to your house as it increases the price value of your house. A house with hardwood flooring always sells faster at higher rates.
  • A variety of designs and colors available with solid flooring increases the appeal of the house and makes it warmer for the family.
  • Hardwood flooring is relatively very easy to install as it can be either nailed down or glued to the existing floor. While installing the solid flooring, one must make sure that the ground below is not made up of concrete. The installation procedure is so simple that you can even install the hardwood flooring on your own.
  • The two types of hardwood flooring available in the market are un-furnished and pre furnished. In the case of pre furnished hardwood, you don’t need to sand and re-sand it again and again. Pre-furnished hardwood flooring can be directly installed while un-furnished hardwood must be manually sanded and re-sanded several times.
  • In most of the wooden flooring, flexing is considered to be normal. However the thickness of hardwood flooring hinders the activity of flexing when you walk on it.
  • Hardwood flooring is highly popular among the people but engineered oak flooring is quickly taking over it. However hardwood flooring is available in longer lengths when compared to engineered floor and they are also relatively cheaper.
  • If your family members always suffer from some kind of allergy or another, the type of flooring that your house has can be one of the reasons behind it. However when you install hardwood solid flooring, you can be quite sure that it will not cause you any kind of allergies or diseases.
  • Hardwood flooring can be sanded many times and maintained easily over the years.
