BENEFITS OF HAVINGSolid Wood Flooring

Four of the key benefits to have solid wood flooring are:
VARIETY AND STRENGTH
Solid wood flooring is offered in a wide variety of widths, lengths and colours. It creates comfort, warmth and unique beauty wherever it is installed. The woods used are characterised by their strength and durability.
BUDGET & ALLERGY FRIENDLY
Solid wood flooring will for sure pay off over the years for you and your family. A budget friendly wood is the great oak. Other premium woods are also available. This floor type offers lasting quality; it is easy to clean and maintain. Furthermore, it is allergy-friendly compared to other floor solutions because pollen, dust, pet dander or mould do not get trapped into your floor.
HIGH QUALITY APPEARANCE
Along with an elegant, high-end aesthetic, solid wood floors offer the warmth, beauty, and value of wood, which never goes out of style. Hardwood floors like this one are also said to enable a look of spaciousness wherever they are installed.
LONGEVITY
Solid wood flooring is very durable. Even with the usual wear and tear it can last for many years. With moderate use you could expect between 25 - 35 years before a quick maintenance service. With limited use and timely maintenance it may last between 75 - 100 years. For example, we have even restored parquet floors, which have endured for 200 years.

ABOUT OUR SERVICESSolid Wood Flooring Installation & Maintenance

Whether you want to update your current solid wood flooring or install a new one, we can quickly and efficiently fix any issue.
1
What floor type is right for me?

If you are looking for a long lasting solid wood flooring, this is the way to go. Being known for its many positive characteristics such as being extremely strong and long lasting the oak hardwood floor is widely preferred in many homes.

2
What solid wood flooring patterns can I have?

Based on the type of fitting and the type of individual pieces there are  several types of solid wood flooring. It can consist of separate relatively small parquet pieces also known as solid parquet. Alternatively, it can be in the form of larger and longer boards. As a result this type of parquet can be installed as a solid floor, glued or screwed to the base. We do not recommend the usage of nails to fit the new parquet on a wooden surface. We usually do it through screwing, which eliminates the potential squeaks with time and makes the fitting much stronger.

3

PROTECTIVE LAYERSFinishing Touches

In short, after installing the solid wood flooring the next step is to sand it with special machines and add a finishing protective layer. This layer additionally can be waxed or polished. On customer’s request, the finishing layer can be Matte, Semi-Matte or Glossy.

Furthermore, varnishing and waxing adds yet another protective layer to the already existing parquet to provide extra durability. Because the wood is natural and solid it is possible to renovate it time and time again through scraping. Consequently, it makes it very cost efficient in the long run. General benefits of varnishing and waxing are:

For a luxury finish, we cut the already existing skirting-boards and place wood beneath them. As a result, this creates a more beautiful and perfect finish to obtain maximum beauty and style from your new floor.

    We found Danial through recommendation.
    We have used Danial and his team to update our staircases on the ground and the first floor.
    The finished job is astonishing!
    Danial has a lot of experience, is a great advise with an eye for detail
    … More and all the tools & techniques!
    He is supported a good team too.
    They worked outside under a marquee so that there was limited dust in the house (we are living in whilst they were working). And the work was cleaned every night.
    It took a good 4 days for us...
    also they agree to do a little extra work and polish our kitchen worktop (made of wood).
    We are very satisfied .. are would be happy to recommend Danial to anyone.. But to be honest the work speak by itself: people are coming to visit and are already asking for his details ..
