OAK Flooring – We can also supply solid English oak flooring, this is made in England near by from our sawmill supplier , with whom we work very closely. This gives us the opportunity to provide a high quality, long lasting floor that is worth every penny. The quality starts from sawing the English Oak logs specifically for flooring, this is why we can provide much longer lengths and much wider widths than the standard European Oak alternatives commonly available. Furthermore, the ‘English’ Oak floor boards are 100% heartwood – again not something that is readily found in the market.

As the boards are double kiln dried and being a standard 19mm thick, makes them compatable for use with under floor heating, ( UFH ), as long as the boards are glued down to a dry solid floor

Just as importantly, the ‘English’ Oak is fully traceable so on request our sawmill supplier can we can tell you which woodlands in the UK your floor came from. This gives us and you a provenance over any European Oak floor.

Wide oak boards (between 290 and 340mm wide) with attractive grain patterns are specially selected for hand finishing. The board’s surface is treated by hand to retain the natural contours that arise from the seasoning process. The result is flooring with an opulent and highly distinctive, traditional look. These boards produce a ‘time-worn’ floor effect, with the slightly uneven surface that you would associate more with older properties.

PLEASE BEAR THIS IN MIND IF YOU ARE THINKING OF PURCHASING A SOLID OAK FLOOR.

Please note that all solid Oak flooring is a natural product that, from one season to the next, will display a marginal amount of expansion and shrinkage as the ambient humidity level rise and fall. This expansion tends to be greater with underfloor heating (UFH), as the heat source is immediately below the timber. Please note: If you are not prepared for this seasonal movement, you should not be considering fitting a solid timber floor.
