Solid Wooden Flooring

Solid wooden flooring is historically the most popular wood floor. When you pick up a plank of solid wood flooring there is a heavy feel that is not mistakable. It can add value to a home based on the prestige factor. When fitting a solid wooden floor special care and attention is needed. What is solid wood flooring? Solid Wood Construction Solid wood flooring is made from one layer of solid wood. It will be tongue and grooved and it will be made to varying thicknesses. Oak and pine are the two most popular brands of solid wood flooring. A solid wood floor is one layer of solid timber. It will move with the rise and fall of humidity and temperature in your room. Solid flooring needs to be allowed extra room to breath. Click joints are not suggested for solid wood flooring instead we suggest using a T&G system of installation. A T&G system will respond better to stresses and strains caused by moisture level changes and temperature changes. In Ireland we are lucky as we live in a relatively stable climate with stable moisture levels in the air. Solid wood flooring hold prestige however if you are looking for a wood flooring solution that is easy to fit and hassle free. We suggest looking for a good engineered wood flooring alternative. Solid wood flooring thickness can be varied based on your area. If you are fitting your solid wood floor with nails on joists you will need to ensure that your floor is 20mm thick. For floating or glued installations of wood floors you will not need to be as thick. This will save you money. We suggest leaving your solid floor for 14 days to adjust to your homes climate. Solid wood flooring is available in all species, grades and finishes of wood flooring.  The texture of a solid wood floor can be mad to your preference. Maintaining a solid wood floor. Solid wood flooring will last a few lifetimes with a 8 mm top layer if it has been maintained properly. An oiled floor will need to be maintained on an annual basis it will also need to be cleaned properly. A varnished wood floor will need to be maintained and cleaned properly. If you want an organic appearance to your floor then oil finishes offer the most natural look. Several layers of oil are applied in the finishing process, absorbing into the wood to give some protection. The oil allows to original texture and feel of the wood to remain though will require periodic intensive maintenance with a top-up oil to wood drying out. Oil finishes show signs of wear in areas used the most, so develop a wonderful 'lived in' feel that is unique to your home. However, they are more susceptible to marks and spills so are not recommended for use in kitchens. Available in either satin or matt look, several layers of a lacquer are applied to the surface of the hardwood top layer to form a protective 'barrier'. In a satin finish, lacquered engineered wood flooring give a clean and contemporary feel to the home, while matt varieties give a more classic and natural look. Easier to look after than oil finishes, lacquered floors can be used in busy areas such as kitchens and dining rooms as they are more resistant to spills and marks. However, once worn, a lacquer finish will need to be sanded off and reapplied. Our premium lacquers are exceptionally tough, so this will not be for several years in most homes. Solid wood flooring is great for the following rooms. We suggest placing a solid wood floor in a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, a hallway and a bedroom will all work well with a solid wood floor. We don't suggest fitting a solid wood floor in a conservatory or a bathroom.
