Solid hardwood floors appeal to those who crave only the genuine article. The flooring is the hardest wearing of them all, and can be re-sanded and re-finished many times, which is why it’s such a sound investment. However, it requires regular care and maintenance, and is not suitable for use in (and sometimes above) rooms with high moisture content, as the natural materials may warp.
- 100% natural product – A solid plank of 100% natural hardwood
- Durability – Solid oak flooring is a very hard-wearing product that can give many years of service if well maintained.
- Authenticity – Solid wood floorboards are warm to the touch, and they feel as good as they look.
Solid oak flooring is a 100% natural wood product made from just one piece of timber. How it’s cut can differ from product to product, and it’s really up to your own preference and budget. Flat-sawn oak is the most common and sustainable way to process oak, and therefore the most affordable. Rift-sawn oak is the least common and produces the most waste, increasing the price of the lumber. Quarter sawn oak straddles the line between these two types. Each method yields a different wood pattern, with rift sawn wood producing the most uniform, and aligned textures. Once sawn, the boards are placed in a kiln for drying.
