Planed, tongue & grooved flooring can be used in a variety of flooring applications. Redwood flooring is the best option for use as a clear stained floor as it has a smooth planed surface and attractive appearance. Whitewood flooring is ideal for use where carpet, tile or wood flooring is the final flooring surface.
- The tongue & groove joint provides a stable base while allowing for natural movement and expansion. There is no need to glue the joint.
- Flooring should be 'conditioned' in situ for 2-3 weeks dependant upon conditions. As timber is a natural product this will give it time to absorb or lose moisture so that when fitted there is less likelihood of excess movement after fitting.
- Note: In some ares of the country, Dressed All Round (DAR) / Planed Square Edge (PSE) is used as floorboards.
