Over time, the rich colour & texture of wooden floors may fade. Thornton Flooring can restore your wooden floors to their former glory. Using a dust dree sanding machine to remove the protective layer from your floor, making it smooth, clean and ready to apply a new finish. 

European Engineered oak

In order for your Engineered Flooring product to perform to standard expectations the following conditions must be in place:

It is recommended that the engineered plank flooring should be installed by means of direct gluing to the subfloor, however 21mm thick engineered flooring can be directly nailed to joists if they are at 400mm centres or less. This product can be laid as a floating floor but this can result in some spring within the floor, reduce efficiency of under-floor heating performance and lead to the requirement of very large expansion gaps if the floor area is larger than 5 metres in width. Therefore it is expected that this flooring will be glued down when installed on underfloor heating.

Parquet Flooring

Just like regular engineered flooring, parquet engineered flooring is made using several layers of wood, bonded together to form a block, with a top layer of solid wood to form an extremely hard wearing block.

This type of flooring is incredibly stable as the layers are all added alternately at an angle of 90°. This technique increases the engineered parquets stability so that it can be used on all types of sub floor including underfloor heating.


Being thinner and lighter, Karndean  flooring products can be installed easier and faster than natural alternatives such as wood and stone.


Tiling your floor will not only improve the aesthetics of your home, but will also likely add value to it. You can choose from a wide range of floor tile solutions for kitchens and bathrooms including natural stone, slate, porcelain and ceramic.
