Golden Oak - Solid Timber Flooring
Golden Oak Solid Timber Flooring
Solid Timber Floors, or traditional wood flooring, offers an unrivalled level of timeless beautiful, warmth and durability. Solid timber is the perfect flooring choice for high-traffic homes and business, featuring low level maintenance and damage resistance. Floors can even be re-sanded and stained allowing owners to easily change the colour of their floor.
Solid timber is generally more durable than engineered flooring and is able to be sanded and finished over time. Solid timber flooring is hypo-allergenic as it does not have fibres to trap in these things that can be harmful to our children, elderly, or those with existing health conditions such as asthma. Carpet on the other hand can easily stain, it is also known to trap in dust, dirt, toxins, and other pollutants. You can spend hundreds of dollars to have your carpets steam cleaned, and still have more dirt and contaminants in them than you would with a freshly mopped solid timber floor. And when compared with tiles, a tile is cold and hard. The grout can be hard to clean and both the grout and tile tend to stain over time. The only way to fix that is by replacing.
Solid timber flooring can be installed in most situations; however there are specific installation and fixing procedures that must be followed to ensure the long term performance of the timber floor.
