Herringbone Wood Flooring
The Herringbone pattern is often confused with chevron, but herringbone is created by placing rectangles in a staggered zigzag pattern, as shown , it is commonly found in tilework and parquet floors. For herringbone floors, the wood is not cut at an angle, but in rectangles that are laid in a broken zigzag pattern.  If you look closely, to the right, you can see that the pieces of flooring here do not come to a sharp point, as in the chevron floor seen above.

Chevron Parquet
This is a zigzag pattern that comes to a sharp point; imagine the letter “V” on repeat.  A chevron pattern may be worked into knitwear, printed on fabric,  painted on surfaces, or for wood flooring designs.
For chevron floors, the wood pieces are cut at an angle and fitted together to form a true point, as seen here on the left.
This angle is what identifies chevron floors — herringbone  floors, as you have seen explained above, are not cut at an angle.

Recommended Installation Methods

1. Glued Down (Engineered & Solid Flooring)

All Engineered Herringbone Wooden Floors can be bonded to any dry, level and solid subfloor such as concrete screed or wooden materials.

A glued-down wooden floor enhances the feel and sound of solid wood. A glued-down floor is a good solution for large, open areas, where footsteps and drumming noise needs to be minimised.

Our glue down system is one of the best ways to install engineered herringbone flooring and is suitable for both residential and commercial floors.  As we at Right Way Carpentry & Flooring pride ourselves on the quality of our finished work, we always prime and seal all concrete subfloors before starting the installation. This is included in your price per Sqm and means your floor is sealed from any dampness below and creates a good adhesion for the glue to bond to. 

2. Secret Nailed (Engineered & Solid Flooring)

This method of installation is primarily used for traditional timber floors. It is designed to keep solid boards in place. Plywood sheets would first be laid and then floorboards are nailed down to this individually from the side of the board, so no nails or holes are visible from the surface of the floor.

This is a far more costly installation method because of the plywood, but is used commonly to

a) protect the timber from moisture in the concrete,

b) to help hold down thinner floorboards from buckling and

c) overcome any undulations in the concrete. 

3. Floating (Engineered & Laminate Flooring)

You must only float engineered hardwood flooring over an underlay.  Solid wood flooring is not structurally stable enough to be floated, so it must be fixed into position.  Engineered wooden flooring has been designed and constructed in such as way that it has added dimensional strength and stability from the base layers.  This means that it can withstand the added pressure of floating (natural movement).

You will also need to think about the type of underlay that you want to use.  There are different types available depending upon your requirements.  You might want a thermal barrier or a sound reducing underlay.  If you are using underfloor heating then you will need a special low tog underlay to allow the correct transfer of heat through to your floor. Although floating an engineered floor is an acceptable way of installation, it is not something that we recommend as the life of the floor will be shorten greatly.
