Solid Timber Flooring
If you’re looking for solid timber flooring that is distinctive and hard-wearing, you’ll love our range of beautiful tongue and groove flooring, and parquet block floors. Solid wood floors are especially effective for covering concrete or timber subfloors, and for covering over joists.
Choose from these options:
- Tongue & groove flooring
- Parquet block flooring
Solid wooden floors are especially suitable for:
- Family homes and homes prone to damage, such as beach houses
- New, quality and architecturally designed homes
- Heavy traffic areas such as shopping centres, sports floors and hallways
About our solid timbers
Our solid timber flooring is usually 13mm, 19mm and 21mm thick, with widths varying from a 65mm wide board to 220mm wide.
The width of a tongue and groove floor will vary depending upon the desired effect and the thickness of the timber: 13mm flooring timber is most stable in 65mm wide or, at most, 85mm wide. However, we can lay 21mm flooring in boards of up to 220mm wide.
Depending on the profile, between a third and a quarter of the thickness of the timber is safely available for re-sanding but, taken to its limit, this could be up to a half. Therefore, a 19mm tongue and groove floor may have 6mm safely available for sanding.
Installation process for a typical 30m² floor:
Day 1 The surface is prepared
Day 2 The flooring is installed (large floors can take longer than a day, up to a week)
Day 3 The floor is sanded and one coat of polyurethane is applied
Day 4- 5 Two further coats of polyurethane are applied
Day 6 The floor can be safely walked on in clean, dry socks (no heavy furniture)
Day 7 Furniture may be returned
Note: polyurethane takes five to seven days to fully harden.
Be prepared for noise and dust during installation and sanding – but be even more prepared to be thrilled with the outcome!
Solid wooden flooring will change colour over the years due to UV light. It will also become scratched and worn from heavy traffic. The good news is that it can be sanded or disced, and recoated. This process may use up anything from zero to 2mm of the timber depending on the depth of damage.
Polyurethaned and oiled solid timber floors are easily cleaned by regular sweeping/vacuuming, and cleaning with a suitable floor cleaner. Dry-mopping is best. Use a spray-bottle containing diluted cleaner and wipe over with a dry mop – avoid over-wetting as this can cause damage.
“Our clients have moved into their new house – they are loving it and their new hardwood floors. So thank you and the Team at Just Hardwood Floors.”
“Just wanted to let you know I am absolutely delighted with my new floor. Not only do I think it looks fab but so do all my friends. Don’t be surprised if you get a run on this colour as a few have asked for the name of your company. And the best bit was having tradesmen who turned up when they said they would, did what they were supposed to do, and didn’t leave a mess either!!”
“Thanks for the floor cleaner package (and thanks so much for the scorched almonds and lovely card – a very welcome surprise!). Thanks again for the friendly and professional service on our floor from start to finish. I’ll have to say it has been one of the most outstanding experiences we’ve had building our home.”
