Solid wood flooring comes in a huge variety of woods, widths, thickness and colour to suit almost any requirement from modern to traditional homes. They are easy to maintain and are far more hygienic than fitted carpets. With the proper care and attention, your solid wood floor will last a lifetime and like a good wine, improve with age.

Wooden floors these days are extremely fashionable adding tremendous value to any home. Estate agents state that “homes with wooden floors sell twice as easily as those without”.

Solid wood flooring is secret or surface nailed onto joists or a quality sub-floor, but can also be glued onto a concrete or wood sub-floor with plenty of allowance for wood expansion.

It differs from engineered flooring in that it is cut directly from the log and as its name suggests it is one piece of solid wood. This means that it is less stable than its engineered counterpart and not suitable for laying over under floor heating or in areas where there is any sign of damp.

Solid wood flooring is available Unfinished or Prefinished. Unfinished enables you to colour and finish your floor to your exact requirements, onsite, once the floor has been fitted. Prefinished has the advantage of being quicker to fit, less mess and is ready to use straight away.

There are many types of solid wood that you can choose for your floor with Oak flooring being an extremely popular option.
