Wood Flooring Type | Solid
Solid wood flooring is one of the most popular choices because it is so natural and stylish, which is a solution within everyone’s reach. Solid wood flooring is also known as real hardwood flooring because it is made from one piece of 100% hardwood timber. As a result, solid wood flooring is highly durable which enables you to sand, refinish or re-coat several times thereby greatly extending the life-span of the floor. Additionally, solid wood flooring is recommended for those who wish to rejuvenate the floor due to heavy foot traffic.
Hardwood Species | Oak
Oak is a really popular wood flooring choice, This is because it is strong and durable as it will last for years and years. Oak wood flooring allows colour variation between planks which can vary from light to dark shades.
Grade | Character
When wood is processed it is graded into different categories: prime, character or rustic. The grading process takes into account the number and the size of knots that are present in the wood, the consistency of the colour and the amount of sap naturally present in the wood. The character grade of this floor allows little sapwood, knots of varying sizes some mineral streaks, natural grain pattern and colour variation. Any knots, splits or imperfections will be filled with dark filler.
Finish | UV Lacquered
The finishing of this wood flooring is with a UV filter and has been lacquered. This means that the overall finish is tough, has a slight shine to it (even if matt lacquer is used there will always be a slight shine) and will stand up to the negative effects of sunshine and extreme natural light.
