Description - Provenza's Tresor is a collection of European Oak wide plank hardwood flooring that is available in a range of fashionable colors. Provenza engineered hardwood is made with a European Oak veneer that is subject to color, character, grain, stain and finish variation. Each plank comes in a 9.45" width and varying lengths including planks up to 86.6" long to give your floor a modern and unique plank lay. These European oak wood floors are made extra tough with a scratch resistant surface and a matte finish that provides the protection your beautiful wood floor deserves. Edges seam together with a micro-bevel that allows the natural character of the wood to define the planks rather than plank edging.
Material – Like DNA, each board of Provenza hardwood flooring is unique. Every plank is handcrafted and no two boards are the same. The TRESOR COLLECTION is a natural wood product subject to color, character, grain and finish variation. Mineral streaks, knots, splits, cracks, splintering and other imperfections may also be present and are not considered a manufacturer defect. Color, character, grain and finish variation shown on this page may appear in larger variation in your installed floor.

The flooring is installed as a “floating flooring”. This means that the flooring should not be fixed to the subfloor and there should be 4-6 mm distance to wall and other fixed objects. Remove any flooring strips. Measure the room accurately at a right angle to the direction of the floorboards. The floorboards in the final row should be at least 5 cm wide. If necessary, the floorboards in the first row can be cut to smaller size. Tools needed to install the flooring are a pad saw or fine toothed handsaw and an installation kit containing spacer block and an installation tool. You also need an underlayment (cork, foam or rubber) and in certain cases 0.2 (.008 in) mm plastic film for insulation against moisture.
Store the floorboards at room temperature for at least 48 hours still in their packaging, prior to commencing work. The room temperature must be at least 18°C (65°F) before and during installation. Floor areas more than 100 m² (900 sq. ft.) with dimensions greater than 10 m (30 feet) in either length or with, in transitions between two rooms and asymmetrical floor areas requires expansion gaps in the floor installation.
The flooring can be laid on top of most hard surfaces such as resilient floor coverings, wood flooring and ceramic tile. Soft subfloors such as carpets and similar must be removed. The subfloor must be even, flat, dry and variations should not exceed +/- 2 mm in 2 m (.08 in 6.6'). On wooden floors the flooring is normally laid across the existing floorboard.
All type of concrete, wooden and ceramic surfaces must be completely dry:
- For wood surfaces, moisture rate corresponding to 50% RAH
- For concrete screeds CM less than 2.0%/
- For anhydride screeds CM less than 0.5%
All types of concrete and ceramic subfloors require insulation against damp. This is also required for concrete floors with built-in-moisture barrier or heating and concrete floors with resilient floor covering. Use moisture barrier film with a minimum thickness of 0,2mm (.008) and allow for at least 20cm (8”) overlapping before taping. Turn the film upwards along the walls and trim when the laying of the floor is completed. Underlayment must be used over the entire installation when installing. Use underlayment paper or foam with a thickness of 3mm (.12 in).
- The tools generally needed for installation are: Handsaw or power saw, hammer, crowbar or pull bar, tape measure, pencil, chalk line, wood or plastic spacers, tapping block, carpenters square, adhesive trowel and a quality adhesive approved for hardwood flooring.
- Installation should begin next to an outside wall, as it is usually the straightest wall and used as a reference point in establishing a straight working line. A good way to establish a working line is to measure an equal distance from the wall at both ends and snapping a chalk line.
- Undercut or notch-out door casings to fit flooring thickness by placing a piece of flooring on the subfloor as a height guide for sawing. Remove door thresholds and base moldings and replace after flooring installation. Always leave at least 1/2" expansion space between flooring and all walls and vertical objects.
- Measure the distance from the wall at the width of the plank plus another 1/2" for an expansion space when establishing your working line. It is advisable to dry lay a few rows before proceeding installation to confirm your directional layout decision and working line. Adjustment of the working line may be necessary if the outside wall or other working line reference is out of square. This can be done by scribe cutting the first row of planks to match the wall, creating a straight working line.
- IMPORTANT! Adhesive/glue that comes in contact with the surface of oil finished floors will damage the finish. The use of adhesive/glue removal products on oil finish floors, including but not limited to, acetone and paint thinner, will damage the finish. Provenza Floors, Inc. will not be liable for damages that are the result of a failure to prevent adhesive/glue exposure or the use adhesive/glue removal products.
