Solid Wood Flooring

  • As the name suggests Solid wood is made from 1 piece of wood cut from the tree as a plank. The striking apperance is matched by a long life expectancy, that with the corect maintanance can last a life time and beyond.
  • Most solid boards come between 15mm and 22mm thick with the most common being 18mm-20mm thick. Solid wood must by fully secured to the sub-floor either by glue or nailed/screwed thus making it unsuitable for underfloor heating as it will expand and contract with moisture during the different seasons of the year.
  • It really is a fantasic centre piece for your home, being completly organic and responsibly sourced you can be sure that your new floor is also helping the enviroment.

Engineered Wood Flooring

  • Engineered wood flooring is built with several layers of timber stuck together under very high pressure creating a board that compared to Solid wood has greater stability and strength..
  • Engineered flooring usally comprises 3 layers, the top layer being real hardwood and ranges from 0.7mm to 6mm in thickness. The Centre core is useally ply or softwood and sometimes HDF, this centre core gives the plank its stabilty and strength.
  • The bottom layer or support layer also provides extra stability, giving a strong foundation to the floor.
