FINISHING has a major impact on the look and performance of your floor. We will discuss the finishing options and, in addition, we stock non-toxic natural hard wax oils and stains.
INSTALLATION AND FINISHING SERVICE – throughout New Zealand. We have installed and finished hundreds of solid timber floors including extensive repair and replacement work after the Christchurch earthquake. Currently, we are supplying and installing the solid timber flooring in the restored Christchurch Town Hall.
Did you know?
Solid timber flooring is a health-conscious option. Most durable wood possess anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Through experimentation, Scientists at the University of Wisconsin found that 99.9% of bacteria dangerous to humans, when placed on solid wooden boards, had died out completely within minutes. Solid wood floors regularly vacuumed greatly reduce unhealthy dust and household mites.
Timber is an excellent natural insulator, making for a warm, energy-efficient home.
Researchers at Lincoln University have proven that wood holds two and half times the heat by volume that is held by concrete.
Why Choose Solid Timber Flooring?
- AUTHENTICITY While laminate & engineered flooring are designed to imitate solid timber flooring, solid timber is the real thing. Our boards come in random lengths and have natural variations in figure and colour from knot-free to ultra rustic.
- GREAT VALUE – A solid timber floor is an absolute investment that will last for many generations. The added value exceeds the cost. With our short supply chain, the price difference between our solid timber floors and our engineered floor is not large. Enquire about our ‘special’ stock lines that can be cheaper than engineered flooring!
- GREATER FLEXIBILITY IN STYLE AND DESIGN With our wide range of timber species, finishing options and board sizes, we can supply a solid timber floor to satisfy any design objective.
- LONGEVITY – Like your home should last a lifetime, so should your floor. A well maintained solid timber floor will endure, developing patina, character and beautiful scars over decades of use. Many solid timber floors in NZ Victorian Villas are well over 120 years old and prized by their owners.
- THICKNESS – A solid timber floor can withstand a complete re-sand and a change in finish while retaining the timeless feel of the original floor.
- STORES MORE CARBON – Every 50 square metres of solid timber flooring stores about 2 ½ tonnes of atmospheric carbon. The tree has taken in carbon dioxide for photosynthesis producing oxygen and carbon to make wood. The carbon is trapped in the wood until it decomposes.
- USES LESS ENERGY: Less energy is used in the manufacture of Solid Timber Flooring than engineered and laminate wood flooring. The freight distance for local Solid timber flooring is less than other wood flooring options which are all made overseas.
- BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT – The use of NZ grown wood supports our forestry industry which is good for water quality, soil conservation and diversity of habitat. We source from sustainable forests where young trees replace harvested trees.
- SUITABLE FOR WET AREAS: Unlike alternatives, correctly installed solid timber flooring is suitable for bathrooms and laundries.
- LOCALLY MADE, SUPPORTING THE LOCAL ECONOMY AND JOBS – All of our solid wood flooring is locally processed including most of our imported flooring. All engineered and laminate wood flooring is made overseas.
