First ever blogpost dates from 2006

Way before we at Wood You Like started with the blogplatform we are still using, the first post was created and (still) hosted on Blogger.

It details a case-study by hand of our many DIY customers:

Case-study: Duoplank on Underfloor Heating

As self-builders, we are very involved in specifying the materials used in our house.  We wanted the look and feel of real oak planks but without too many of the difficulties associated with the shrinkage of natural oak.  We quickly identified the Duoplank product through its UK distributor Wood-You-Like in Kent. This is an Engineered Board made with a wide top solid layer of natural oak and a high-quality birch ply substrate, critical to us because we were installing on concrete with UFH embedded in the floor.
We visited the showroom near Ashford and received plenty of good advice from theRural Berskhirecompany and felt we were dealing with people who actually installed the product, as well as supply them. 
From the wide range of oak qualities available we selected the 'Rustic' range as being closest to the effect we sought to create in our new-build, which is a Georgian-style farmhouse of brick and tile exterior.

Installing the product was easier than we expected, the longest task being the selecting and cutting of the planks.  As we tackled each room, we initially placed them in position 'dry' on the floor to check for colour-match and fit.  The planks slot together using a tongue-and-groove formation.  The Duoplank manufacturer had taken care to chamfer the bottom edges of the planking, avoiding any chance of surplus glue seeping into the tongue-and-grooves.  We used a chop-saw to cut each edging plank to length.  This made light work of the cutting task; the engineered product seems as dense as working with solid oak. We glued the rows of board to the floor, three or four at a time.  ........

Happy New Year and Happy Birthday Wood You Like

A very happy New Year to all of our clients, we at Wood You Like wish you and your loved ones good health and a prosperous 2018.

1079611This year we want to celebrate our 15th anniversary without you. Time seems to have flown and we often wonder were all the years have gone?? It feels like only yesterday we started our specialised wooden flooring company from our home in Charing Kent, or only yesterday we opened our showroom in the same village - but that really happened twelve years ago! Where has all that time in between gone?

Oh well, lets just start the "party" and we'll reminisce in a future blogpost about all our - and perhaps your - adventures. 

This Anniversary year starts off with a celebration discount of 15% - yes, you read this correctly, 15% ! - on orders in our secure webshop, you can find the discount code on our "Fans Only Offers" (or on the infopage) page on Facebook, which details everything you need to know about this special offer
