There’s something strikingly elegant about a solid or engineered wood floor. The beauty of natural wood is that it offers infinite and unique variations in knotting, markings, grain and colour.
At Long Lane Carpets and Flooring we offer a large range of solid and engineered wood flooring options and have specialised wood floor fitters on hand to provide you with a seamless, expert fit. With ranges from quality manufacturers including Ted Todd, Woodpecker and Kersaint Cobb you can choose from an impressive selection of wood floors to suit a variety of budgets.
With different tones, textures and plank sizes, you can create a classic look in your home that will stand the test of time. Our engineered wood can also be cut to size for a truly bespoke finish. Whether you want to mix and match several oak finishes, or go for a herringbone or basket weave layout, you can create a uniquely personal floor that will serve as an eye-catching feature for years to come.
If it’s a traditional or contemporary look you’re after, solid wood floors create a luxurious, timeless environment whilst offering a hard-wearing, durable finish.

With love and care to allow the wood to grow old gracefully.
Solid Hardwood Planks
This is the traditional form of hardwood flooring. Tongue and groove planks are machined from a single piece of timber. These are installed by secret nailing (invisible nailing), face nailing or gluing down to joists, timber sub floor or concrete slab. Solid planks are not suitable for use over underfloor heating.
We provide solid flooring in a range of timbers and widths, unfinished or pre-finished with lacquer or oils.
Laminate planks are made to realistically imitate the appearance of a wooden floor.
We offer high-quality laminates rated for domestic or commercial use that can be an economical alternative to wooden flooring. Laminate flooring is suitable for use with underfloor heating.
Engineered planks are made up of a top layer (or wear layer) of real hardwood on a “core.” This core can be plywood, softwood block board or high density fibre board. They can be traditional tongue and groove or click together boards and are anywhere from 11 – 21 mm thick. Can be secret nailed, bonded down or laid as floating floor. Engineered boards are suitable for use with underfloor heating.
We provide engineered flooring in a range of timbers and widths, unfinished or prefinished with lacquer or oils. As they are more stable, engineered planks are available in much wider widths than solid planks.
We supply an electric mat system suitable for use under engineered, laminate, and cork flooring. We also supply & install an in-screed electric cable heating system, suitable for use under engineered hardwood flooring, in either case it is essential that a floor temperature sensor be installed.
Parquet Blocks & Panels
Parquet is small blocks or strips that can be laid in a variety of geometric patterns. They are traditionally made of solid timber, but are also available in engineered form that is suitable for use over underfloor heating. Solid blocks are usually unfinished, engineered are available both prefinished and unfinished in a variety of timbers.
Parquet and mosaic panels are pre-made panels of more elaborate geometric designs. We can supply solid and engineered versions.
We supply all necessary accessories, such as threshold mouldings and radiator pipe collars as well as everything you would need if you were installing the flooring yourself, such as damp proof membranes, underlays, adhesives, finishishing oils, and lacquers. We also sell cleaning and maintenance products and felt pads to product the finish from scratches.
