Their are two different types of wooden plank options. Solid and engineered, they are both great but for different reasons.
SOLID TIMBER FLOORING
There is an enduring charm in timber flooring that surpasses time and remains impervious to passing trends. With its richly burnished surface, timber floors embody timeless elegance, making them a quintessential statement of style that enhances the value of your home.

Types of wood finishes
A protective layering is vital to protect your project surface against water and environmental damage.
Two of the most popular finishing varnishes are oil and polyurethane. A varnish basically protects the wood surface from day to day wear.
Solid and engineered woods can use either finishing application.
Polyurethane finishes produce a beautiful, natural luster to the colour of wood.
Water based polyurethane is recommended as it is non-toxic and nonflammable making it great for homes with pets and small children.
Water based polyurethane is our eco-friendly option, it produces less fumes and has an array of sheen levels to choose from.
Solvent based polyurethane is available on request. Please talk to one of our friendly experts in store to see which finish is right for you.
Depending on your budget, time frame and the look you are wanting to achieve there are two options for installation.
A prefinished floor is quick and easy to install. Using engineered wood, the planks come finished with your chosen colour and grain. It is ready to use as soon as it’s down.
A timeless elegant look can be achieved with our on-site custom finishing.
Unfinished solid wood planks are installed then sanded before an oil or polyurethane is applied. The result is a stunning, one of a kind floor that will last a lifetime.
