There is a huge variety of finishes available and it is part of our superior service to offer information and advice that allows the creation of the best result.

A wooden floor is timeless in its appeal. Wood floors offer an alternative that is warmer underfoot that a stone floor and have a reputation steeped in history. As they are a natural product, every floor offers a unique look and textures that improves with age. It is also a flooring alternative that is well-suited to under floor heating systems.

Do wood floors expand and contract?

It is a well-accepted fact that some types of wood react more than others. A solid wood floor will be more reactive to temperature and humidity changes than their engineered wood counterparts. A wood floor will expand and contract with the changing seasons and this is completely normal. If it appears that your floor is experiencing changes out of the range to which is acceptable it may be that you require further advice as to whether there is a moisture problem that may need further investigation.

    I have light oak engineered wood flooring which requires sanding. It runs through the kitchen diner which measures 21ft x 14 ft and it runs into the hall way which is 16ft x 7ft

    It runs under the skirting boards obviously.
    I don’t want it varnished but I expect it will need sealing (with a non shiny finish)

    Please could you give me a quote. Located in Burnley.

    Many thanks
