Solid Oak Skirting

Heritage Doors & Floors LTD are solid oak manufactures who specilise in bespoke sizes. Solid Oak skirting is manufactured from solid American white oak  which we source direct from America. The skirting is of high quality and available in a range of different options.

What options are available in the Solid Oak Skirting?

The oak skirting is available in a rustic grade or prime grade timber. The difference between the two is that the rustic grade will contain the general knots and character through out which is sold as a more traditional grade as it really suits traditional cottages, barn conversions etc.  The prime grade is a more modern look as there is not much character throughout the timber but there will still be the natural grain patterns as in the rustic grade.

The skirting is available in a range of widths as standard but we can machine specific widths if requested. The standard widths we offer is 75mm (usually used as architrave but can be used as a skirting is required) 100mm, 125mm,  150mm, 175mm or 200mm. The standard thickness is usually 20mm thick but again,  if you require the skirting thinner we can also do that for you. The lengths are supplied in up-to 3.6m lengths, if not specified you will receive random lengths if you require specific lengths we can supply them at the length you require as long as they are no longer than 4m.

Below are the different profiles which are available for you to choose from:

Solid Oak Skirting

Chamfer profile



Solid Oak Skirting

Bullnose profile



Solid Oak Skirting

Torus profile



Solid Oak Skirting

Ogee profile

As standard the skirting is supplied unfinished ready to oil or stain once received. If you require a pre-finished product, we do now offer a hand finished option which is available in a range of different colours which is hand finished by the heritage team in our Sheffield workshops.  If you require more information about our hand finished products, please let us know and we can send you a brochure.

Fitting Solid Oak Flooring On Underfloor Heating

There are a number of Guidelines to Fitting Solid Oak Flooring on Underfloor Heating. Solid oak flooring is most defiantly compatible with under flooring heating as every properties temperature and moister content will be different.

Fitting Solid Oak Flooring on Underfloor Heating

All timber floors will expand and contract due to them been a natural product and to the varying moisture content in the air.  When no heating is on and windows open the moisture is higher and wooden flooring expands, on the other hand when central heating is on it dries the air and wood flooring contracts. The width of the board will only be affected by this as timber doesn’t expand lengthways. Movement is a problem and should be considered when fitting a solid timber floor, as it could result in gaps between each board or it could even buckle upwards in the weakest point if there is nowhere for the floor to expand to.

Tips when Choosing Solid Oak Flooring to be fitted on top of underfloor heating.

  • In most cases the flooring will be offered in a micro bevel or square edge finish, micro bevel is good to disguise any gaps that may occur with the flooring is expanding and contracting as the edges of boards have a slight chamfer. Whereas the square edge may show a lipping as the flooring move as they are machined square/flat.
  • It would be recommended to leave the flooring in the room where it’s going to be laid for a week or so as it will allow the flooring to acclimatise before it is fitted. By storing the flooring in the property it will also stop any more noticeable movement in the flooring once its laid as it has already acclimatise to the rooms temperature where it will be fitted in.
  • Sealing a wood floor is essential as the better you seal your boards the less moisture will be absorbed so there will be less movement. It would be recommended to seal the tongue and groove as well when finishing a floor.
  • Timber flooring does need space to allow it to expand and contract a gap around the room is ideal so the best way to disguise the gap would be to fit the skirting after the flooring so it sits on top, them the flooring can move under the skirting boards. Laying the flooring as a floating floor would also let the flooring move as a surface stopping any breakages in the weak areas.
  • Charges in temperature and moister in the property is the worst thing for oak flooring so you need to try and avoid any sudden changed to the temperature. Avoid mopping and if there is any spillages make sure they are cleaned up quickly.

Oak Flooring Trims

Heritage Doors & Floors LTD manufacture Oak Flooring Trims for doorways and to finish off flooring. The trims we have designed include End trims, Jointing piece, ramp, semi ramp, and Scotia. Each of the trims are designed for a different purpose. Heritage manufactures these in our workshop so they are guaranteed to match our oak products as they are made from the same timber.

The trims are most commonly used for when 2 floors meet at a door way i.e. – solid oak flooring to tiles. There will be a height difference as solid oak flooring is usually 20mm thick and tiles are a lot thinner so if a door trim is put between the 2 it won’t be as noticeable. Heritage has designed these so the standard metal ones don’t have to be used and they finish of a solid oak flooring nicely.

What is each of The Oak Flooring Trims Used for?

  • scotiaOak scotia – is used around the edge of the room where the flooring is been fitted to hide the expansion gap. The expansion gap can also be hidden by fitting skirting board after the flooring has been fitted.


  • end trimOak End Trim – is used for when flooring meets a hearth or external door. The oak ramp can also be used for the same purposes but is just a different style but is sometimes preferred.



  • t sectionOak Jointing piece – is used for flooring that meets another surface that is the same height.



  • semi rampOak Semi Ramp – is used to bridge 2 floors that meet which have a difference in height i.e oak flooring to tiles.



Heritage will supply the trims unfinished as standard so you can oil or stain them to match the flooring you have that way the trim will just blend in and not be noticeable or we have a range of colour if you would prefer a pre-finished product. If a trim wasn’t fitted when 2 floors meet that have a large height difference it would cause a trip hazard in the property. Heritage usually supply the trims at 1m long as most door ways are that size or smaller but if you require a different length we can do that also as we manufacture the trims, we can machine up to 4ms in length.

Each of the trims are designed for different purposes check out our website for the one you require. If you require a trim and none of the trims are suitable on our website contact the heritage sales team and we can guide you.

if you are unsure on which trim you require do not hesitate to contact our sales team or 01142474917.

Glass Stairparts Installation Guidelines

We at Heritage Doors & Floors LTD stock a wide range of stairparts. We have our experienced fitting team who specialise in fitting all our products which includes stairs, flooring, doors and much more. Here are some Glass Stairparts Installation Guidelines to help you along the way with your fitting process.

Glass Stairparts Installation Guidelines

The picture to the left is of the glass stairparts system once fitted.


Firstly, cut the handrails close to the newels and remove them. Spindles should then come out, followed by the baserails which are normally just screwed, pinned or glued onto the top of the string. Where you have removed balustrade from the landing, its worth checking now that the landing floorboards are reasonably level and if not then level them up. When you come to fix the new baserail down uneven boards can make it hard to get the baserail level. You should be left with just the newels.
The next step is to identify which newels can be removed, and which cannot. Those that cannot, we will cut down to form a base for a replacement top section called a spigot newel. This is basically a newel with a large round spigot on the bottom to help you connect it to the base.

When newels can and cant be removed on a staircase:

The next step is to identify which newels can be removed, and which cannot. Those that cannot, we will cut down to form a base for a replacement top section called a spigot newel. This is basically a newel with a large round spigot on the bottom to help you connect it to the base.

1. Where it is next to a staircase turn, whether this is a winder box or a quarter landing. The base of the newel in these situations holds the treads and strings in this area in place
2. Where a newel part way up or at the top of the stairs runs all the way to the floor. In this case the builder has used the base to add support for some part of the stairs or landing.

If you have purchased unfinished stairparts it would be recommend to finish them before they are fitted as it can get tricky if finished after fitted. The handrails and baserails would be advised to be fitted first as they act as the frame.

Solid Oak Flooring Installation Instructions

We, at Heritage Doors & Floors LTD, have our very own experienced fitters who specialise in working with all our hardwood and engineered products. Solid Oak Flooring does need to be fitted in the correct way so below are some key Solid Oak Flooring Installation Instructions that are provided to guide you.

Solid Oak Flooring

Solid Oak Flooring

To the left is a picture of the solid oak flooring before and after the heritage installation team have installed the rustic oak flooring.




How to prepare a sub floor when installing solid oak flooring on to it:

The oak flooring can be laid direct over a concrete screed floor but in this instance it is absolutely critical that the floor is thoroughly dry. You should always work to your screed manufacturers instructions but as a basic guide, a screed will require 1mm per day or an inch per month to dry out. If time is an issue then there are much faster drying screeds that will dry at anything up to 10-15mm per day. Before flooring is laid, the moisture content of the screed needs to be under 6%. It is possible to lay solid hardwood flooring over under floor heating and if special precautions are taken then problems can be minimised although we cannot guarantee this installation. A underlay would need to be used.The flooring can also be laid direct on to an exisiting flooring again a underlay would need to be used for extra protection for the flooring.

Whenever possible we recommend to lay the flooring as a floating floor by just used a PVA wood glue to fit the tongue and grooves together, this will allow the flooring to move as a surface. This is the best way to fit a floor as it is a natural product so the flooring will expand and contract.  We believe that if the flooring is stuck directly down it will be restricted which could result in the flooring breaking at the weakest point possible.

Finishing the flooring is a key factor we recommend to use a hardwax oil there are 2 products we work with which are treatex and osmo. We would recommend 2 coats to be applied this will protect the flooring also.  .

The standard lengths of spindles are 900mm which will match building regulations for a residential property. We also have 1100mm spindles in for a commercial property.

The gap between each spindle can not exceed 100mm again this will match building regulations. This is the same for all styles of balusters i.e glass panels the gap between each panel can not exceed 100mm.

On the staircase you will require 2 spindles per step and on the landing you just need to space the spindles out so the gap is at most 100mm between each.
