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!

My wife and I are very happy with the finish you achieved on the floor Rob. As an owner builder it is often difficult to find quality trades people who are reliable. You started on site the day that you had pre-arranged, and the job was completed in a satisfactory time frame (within the constraints of the weather conditions). we thoroughly recommend Croydon Floor Services to anyone looking to have a quality polished timber floor. we thank you for extending us the level of service that your larger customers have obviously grown to expect;
I write to personally thank you for your good work. You have helped us construct an excellent facility at Macleod which will enable Open House to reach out and bring hope, friendship, support and positive activities to many marginalised and needy young people and adults in the community. You have done your work very well and very importantly you have joined in the spirit of the place and have given of yourself. So on behalf of the Executive Council, the staff volunteers and participants (and all those to come in the future) my deepest thanks.
I wanted also to let you know how happy I am with the way that the floors have tumed out and also to say that you have two very nice boys working with you. They were polite and well organised and always tumed up when they said that they would. They were respectful of the house and made sure that we were informed at all times of what was going on. Above all they were hard working and so many people today write to complain I thought that it would be nice to send some praise for a change. Thanks again for the job it was great
We are so pleased with the floors. They look amazing and it is an incredible transformation. The Croydon Floors team have done a brilliant job. Thank you all so much.
I would like to thank you very much for the wonderful job that Chris has done on my floorboards, they look fantastic.
I am really happy with the result! Thanks especially to Daniel for all the hard preparation work and beautiful finish. I am still cleaning of course and with the heat haven't exactly moved back in, but I'm sort of used to an empty house now and it seems a shame to cover the lovely boards! I hope you all enjoy some time off over Christmas to enjoy with your families. Thank you again for everything - I LOVE it! Cheers Linda.
I checked out your handiwork last Sunday and the floorboards look terrific. The repairs were also really well done - thank you. I was impressed that you managed to get the dents out - I have no idea how! I haven't received your invoice as yet, so I'm just checking that neither of us has overlooked something. I'll process payment as soon as I receive your invoice with instructions.
Hi rob Just passing on my thanks. The floors look amazing we never thought they would come up like they have. Your customer service has been brilliant. We would have no problem in recommending you.
