With an unparalled eye for detail, we can fit your choice of timber floor quickly and cost effectively.

Timber floors can be broken down into three main categories

1. Laminate Floor

Consists of no solid timber, but is made from a composite base onto which a surface layer is attached.  The advantage of laminate is that it is easy to maintain, quick to install and very cost effective.

2. Semi-solid

A semi solid floor has a 4mm-5mm layer of solid timber which is attached to a plywood base. As it uses less of solid hardwood it is more cost effective but still giving the appearance of a solid floor.

3. Solid Floor

Solid timber floors as the name suggests are hardwood all the way through. Generally 18mm-22mm in thickness. They can come finished or unfinished. Unfinished floors need a light sanding once installed and then require varnishing or oiling, whereas pre-finished are ready for use immediately.

Maintenance Tips

  • Place mats at doorways to prevent the dragging of grit and dirt across the floor.
  • Brush or vacuum regularly for maintenance.
  • Wipe up spills immediately.
  • When mopping don’t use a wet mop, a well wrung cloth or mop is more advisable.

Fit plastic shoes on all furniture to prevent scratching/scuffing of new floor.
