Flooring Choices

Solid Wood

Solid Wood is a traditional flooring choice. Each board in these ranges is a single piece of solid wood that is expertly cut to varied lengths and widths. A solid hardwood floorboard can be re-sanded many times and can last over a centuary. Solid wood does not sit flat on the floor, it has living form and responds to the environment. They create a gentle but noticable sensation underfoot. Solid wood floors are hard wearing and resilient. A great choice for traditionalists.

Engineered Wood

Engineered Wood is a range of derivative wood products which are manufactured by binding or fixing the strands, particles, fibers, or veneers or boards of wood, together with adhesives, or other methods of fixation to form composite materials. These products are engineered to precise design specifications which are tested to meet national or international standards. Engineered wood products are used in a variety of applications, from home construction, commercial buildings to industrial products.
