Once you have chosen from our extensive range of hardwood flooring we will arrange to install the flooring in your chosen room/rooms. First of all we will need to measure up to ensure that you have adequate materials for the job. Whilst you choose the flooring that you want we will worry about the finer details.
Our hardwood flooring is available in a range of woods, including red oak, white oak, cherry, walnut, hickory, maple, ash and pine, all at 3/8, ½, 5/8 or ¾ inch thickness. You choose what you want and leave the rest to us.
Each hardwood board consists of a single piece of natural wood which has been machine cut, then carefully dried. Depending on the type of wood you choose, the drying process can take up to a month to achieve the desired effect- then you can select either a natural or pre-finished face.
Hardwood flooring is usually cut in three ways, according to which aesthetic effect you are looking for:
- Flat Sawn- a horizontal cut which delivers a stunning triangular grain effect
- Quarter Sawn- wood is cut into vertical quarters, creating a smart, linear look
- Rift sawn- the wood is cut into quarters which is accentuated with a horizontal flat sawn cut
The installation process is complex and requires meticulous attention to detail, which is why it’s always strongly advisable to have an experienced professional undertake the work for you. For us, the process is simple, and we can deliver outstanding results in a fraction of the time it would take for an untrained person. Each individual plank is carefully measured and cut to size for a precise finish, then installed with nails, cleats or stables onto a wooden base. Felt paper is placed underneath for soundproofing, and with very wide planks we use construction glue for streamlined effect.
When you invite tradesmen into your home you want to ensure that they are trustworthy, reliable and will be considerate of the fact that this is your home. From the removal of shoes and work boots to clearing away after themselves we are confident that you will be 100% satisfied with the way our team conduct themselves and the work that they do.
The overall look of hardwood flooring is one of quality and style- choose us and we’ll leave it scratch free, beautiful and laid to perfection.
