Purchasing from suppliers of responsibly forested timber
Our specialist team of hardwood floor fitters has the knowledge and skills to the most exacting criteria set by architects and interior designers
The beauty of wood is its warmth and versatility. It is also renewable and recyclable. We can buy many species of timber each with its own signature colour and grain, all suitable for a hard wood floor and available in a variety of colours and finishes. There are also speciality products that are extremely hard wearing and products suitable for underfloor heating.
The floor is supplied as planks, parquet blocks or engineered. Engineered wood is a prefabricated cross ply of woods held together with ultra strong adhesive with the surface layer a veneer of the chosen timber. The result is a much stronger, more stable floor than solid wood can provide. It affords the opportunity for a variety of designs: parquet, chevron, basket weave and even your own design.
Where there is heavy footfall, speciality hardwood floors are the answer for shops, offices, museums and other public buildings. Repairing or re-fitting floors in listed buildings demands high quality flooring fitted by specialists. In the home, the kitchen area is open to spills and burns but we can apply sealants to help prevent too much damage.
We only fit certified wood; it may come from almost any part of the temperate or tropical regions of the world: For example Oak, Beech and Elm from Europe: Bubinga, Ipe, Massaranduba and Wenga from South America; Zebrano from West Africa; Mahogany from the Caribbean, South America, Africa and beyond; Teak, Merbau and Kampas from Asia; Maple and Walnut from North America.
Some woods are rare and, consequently, expensive, Ebony for example. We only fit wood that has been responsibly forested and ethically sourced. And, we deal exclusively with hard wood floor suppliers who are committed to campaigns to conserve of the precious forests of the world such as the World Wildlife Foundation’s Save the Forest
