Different Timber Styles

We stock a fantastic range of different timber styles, including both solid and engineered surfaces, so are sure to have something that is perfect for your needs. The best type to use depends on the room for which it is intended as some are more resistant to moisture and temperature fluctuations that others. If you are not sure what to buy, the following advice should help.

Solid Hardwood Flooring

Consisting of planks that are milled from single pieces of timber, this is a great choice for main reception rooms and anywhere else that a beautiful finish is desired. Because you can sand and refinish it as many times as you wish, this type of floor will last for many years and still look as good as it did the day it was first laid. Samples from our selection of solid hardwood flooring can be viewed in store or, if you prefer, we can arrange a private viewing at your home.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring

If you are looking for a cheaper alternative that still looks great and is very durable, we recommend that you check out our range of engineered hardwood flooring. Constructed from multiple layers of plywood or fireboard, with a layer of real hardwood on the top, the moisture resistant properties of this type of surface make it an excellent choice for below grade areas such as a laundry room in the basement. At the same time, it will not look out of place in your living or dining room.

Which Style to Choose

There are three basic carpet construction types that are used to create different styles and textures and all have different features.
