Tongue and Groove Flooring in Melbourne
Tongue and groove flooring is often used when a tight seam is needed between separate floorboards. Each floorboard has a ‘tongue’ side and a ‘groove’ side, with the tongue fitting into the groove of the adjoining board. The tongues can be nailed down to the sub-floor to prevent the boards from moving and keep the floor securely in place. Alternatively, an engineered floor can be floated so that the floor panels simply attach to each other and not to the sub-floor.
Although glue was once used to join the tongues and grooves of engineered floors, the more recently developed ‘lock and fold’ method allows the tongue and groove timber flooring panels to fit into each other with no glue or fasteners.
The Benefits of Tongue & Groove Flooring
Tight, solid seams – The tongue and groove method provides tight joins with microscopic seams and can even be water-tight when installed with the proper coating. Floating the floor can also give added moisture protection, with the glue stopping moisture getting under the boards.
Cost-effective – Tongue and groove flooring is comparatively cheaper to buy than click-lock flooring. The savings add up, particularly if you’re installing flooring throughout multiple rooms in the house.
Squeak-free – Unlike traditional structured timber floors where the floorboards are nailed down, tongue and groove flooring is glued together for enhanced stability. This means no more unwanted squeaking noises as your feet come into contact with loose floorboards!
