Flooring & Floor Covering
Jul 29, 2008 7:26 pm
I plan to install boral solid timber floor over chipboard. I do not know which product is better for chipboard. They have:
uni-nail 19mm tongue & groove solid flooring, and
Slimwood 12mm tongue & groove solid flooring
It seems that the only difference is the thickness of the board and Slimwood is 10% cheaper.
So, which one should I choose?

Check out the timber lengths. I think the uni-nail comes in longer lengths, which I find nicer.

I think most people go for the slimwood because of the height issue. If you have not issues with the height of your floorboards with your other types of flooring, i would def go for the 19mm. It also means that you can sand it down more times than the 12mm, obviously.

yes, this is what we were told also - that you don't get to sand it down any more times (and ours weren't a Boral product).
We went 13mm so that it will match our carpet.

Having seen both products, the 12mm boards have less 'meat' than the 19m boards.
Regardless, I think the short lengths are the biggest downside
