Maples And Birch

Solid Hardwood Flooring

Each board Is made from a single piece of timber, usually with a tongue and groove joint, on the ends as well as the long sides. We normally recommend that all of these floors are fitted by an experienced floor layer. Wood is a natural product and is susceptible to dimensional changes due to moisture and humidity – each installation needs to be professionally assessed and the floor acclimatised before installation commences. Solid Wood Floors gives you the assurance of a solid structure with an air of quality that enhances any home adding value to your property along with ease of maintenance.

Wood Flooring Cuts – The angle at which a board is cut makes big differences in how the finished product looks. Wood flooring is either plain-sawn, quarter-sawn or rift-sawn.

Plain-sawn is the most common cut. The board contains more variation than the other two cuts because figure patterns resulting from the growth rings are more conspicuous. Quarter-sawing produces less board feet per log than plain-sawing and is therefore more of a premium.

Quarter-sawn wood twists and cups less and wears more evenly. Rift-sawn is similar to quarter-sawn, but the cut is made at a slightly different angle.
