  • The boards are supplied unfinished and will require filling and sealing, once laid.

  • All our flooring is kiln dried down to 10%-12% , which is ideal for a modern centrally heated house, with radiators.

  • We wouldn’t recommend this solid timber flooring to be laid over underfloor heating, although this has been achieved successfully by some of our customers. If this is the situation in your project please speak to our staff about kilning your timber down to 8% moisture content to suit your individual requirements.

  • Flooring can also be made to order and supplied in any timber you require so please talk to our staff about other timbers that you are interested in.
