Real Wood Flooring for Offices
Desirable and Timeless – Solid Wood Flooring
With a long history and the durability to last for generations, solid wood flooring is one of the most desirable flooring choices today. Despite recent advances in modern printing technology, the printed image on a laminate floorboard can never truly replicate the genuine knots, grain and texture that give real wood boards their timeless charm.
In most commercial locations where you are installing solid wood directly over an existing subfloor, such as concrete or plywood, you can choose whatever thickness suits your needs or budget. Real wood board is much less prone to chips, dents and cracks compared to laminate flooring.
As a natural living product, solid wood will shrink and expand as your room changes temperature and as humidity rises and falls. For this reason, careful attention must be paid to installation to make sure that the planks are given sufficient room to move.
The look of solid wood flooring depends on four main aspects; the species of wood, the grade of the grain, surface finish and the size of the plank.
When it comes to investing in your floor, there are few better options than solid wood flooring as it really can last a lifetime. In fact, if well cared for a solid wood floor can last for generations.
Solid wood flooring is nailed or stapled down. It is never installed on a floating basis.
The flooring is suitable for areas which wear down the quickest, for example entrance ways, corridors and stairways.
The flooring was manufactured using sustainable materials and is 100% recyclable.
The flooring is made up of tiles or planks which can be easily replaced if damaged.
