Jacob Graff - Solid Oak Flooring


We offer a solid oak flooring installation service within a distance of approximately 25 miles from Hertford to cover Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Bucks, Berks, Essex and London.


The basic cost of installing a solid wood or engineered wood floor and labour for finishing on site is from £30 plus VAT per square metre onto a timber subfloor. If there is a concrete subfloor, we use a Polymer Flexible wood flooring adhesive. A 12 kg tub costs about £65 and will have an approximate coverage of 12 M2.


In addition, you will need oil or lacquer to finish the solid oak floor on site. You may also need some finishing trims, if you are retaining your skirting boards and thresholds at doorways and where your new wood floor meets eg carpet.


We are happy to visit you on site to take exact measurements and give you a quotation to cover supply, delivery and installation.


Where a concrete screed has been laid in a new extension or new build, sufficient time must be allowed for the screed to dry out before installation and the normal guide is to allow one day for every 1mm of thickness. (One inch per month). Moisture is the one real enemy of a solid wood floor. On old concrete floors, which may not be perfectly level, a latex self-levelling compound may be put down. Our floors are mainly 18/20mm thick, which is a structural thickness, so they can be installed directly onto joists.


We also offer a range of oak skirting boards, architraves and door liners, which are a perfect complement to the installation of your new solid oak floor.


Remember, there is a difference between European Oak and Mongolian Oak or American White Oak. This difference becomes apparent when the floor is varnished or oiled. The grain of European Oak is much more distinctive and will give a much richer finish. Our flooring has been pre-sanded in the factory, so only a light sanding is required on site. It has also been filled where necessary e.g. around a knot. Having vacuumed the floor to remove any grit, we recommend a light coating of oil or lacquer, which should then be buffed to ensure there is no pooling of the liquid. After the recommended period, a second coat should be applied in the same way.


Our latest products are oils combined with a hardener to give the hardest wearing finish on the market.


Using our installation service, you are assured you are dealing with professionals. There are few companies who can demonstrate a complete chain of supply through cutting of logs, kiln drying, machining, delivery and installation.
