Solid Hardwood Flooring is a product of nature. It’s also commonly known as wood flooring and hardwood flooring in the market. Timber flooring is entirely made of wood. It has always been used as a favourite flooring material because of it’s beauty and durability.
First the team make sure the subfloor is level and your hardwood flooring has been acclimated to the room’s humidity and temperature according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. Moisture meter readings are then taken of both the sub floor and the timber prior to installation.
The flooring is then secret nailed and glued to the timber sub floor. On completion of the install the flooring is then sanded and finished.
No matter how carefully you look after your floors, there will come a time where the timber will receive a scratch. To minimalise scratches we recommend keeping on top of maintenance of your floors including giving your floors a quick sweep every day and a proper vacuum once a week.
Other preventative measures include:
- Putting felt under furniture on chairs etc
- Use mats at entry points including front and back doors
- Shoes off where possible
Solid hardwood flooring are made up of thick, hardwood planks and engineered timber floors are made up of bonded layers of plywood, with a thin cut of wood compressed onto the top.
Solid wood floors are extremely strong and durable because of the large amounts of wood that sits above the tongue that may be sanded many times. The recommended fitting for these types of boards are a fix or permanent fix to the sub floor. This would mean either fully gluing the board to your sub floor whether it is concrete or sheet material timber or secret nailing at an angle through the tongues to fix to the sub floor. With engineered flooring the boards are floated and use a click system to hold them together.
Aesthetically, Engineered boards almost always come in a wider board at a fraction of the cost of solid timber. Whilst the lengths of the boards are not quite as long as solid timber, it more than makes up for it with how durable and long lasting it is.
