Traditional Solid Timber Flooring

Traditional Solid Timber Flooring

Solid timber floors, or traditional wood flooring, offers an unrivaled level of beauty, warmth and durability. Solid timber is the perfect flooring choice for high-traffic homes and businesses, featuring low level maintenance and damage resistance. Solid timber floors can be re-sanded and stained allowing owners to easily change the colour and appearance of their floor, and / or repair unforeseen damage.

When compared to new engineered timber flooring, solid timber is still king and generally more durable as it is able to be sanded and finished over time. Solid timber flooring is hypo-allergenic as it does not have fibres to trap in the compounds that can be harmful to our children, the elderly, or those with existing health conditions such as asthma.

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. 

Solid timber flooring provides a long lasting and beautiful appearance. It can be sanded and finished as the years go by; so longevity is built into the product. Below are just some of the key features and benefits of a solid timber floor.

• Largest range of species, colours and grain patterns
• Long lasting, hard wearing and easy to maintain
• Installation over existing timber, sheet floor, battens on concrete
• Can be re-stained to change the colour and appearance of the floor
• A renewable resource with a low manufacturing environmental impact

Timber Species

Solid Timber Flooring is available in a large range of Australian and imported hardwood timbers. 

Selecting the timber species for your new timber floor comes down mostly to an aesthetic choice.

The timber species will determine the general look, such as colour and grain patterns, however with timber being a natural product even within one species there will be variations. Some species exhibit only small variations while others vary greatly in colour and features. As well as this each species is available in different board sizing – the table below shows the species and the sizes that species is generally available in (19mm and 21mm represents traditional solid timber and 12mm and 14mm represents overlay timber). 

Note: Various other sizes available in Australian Species, such as 60 x 19 to 180 x 21. Contact an NS Timber Flooring representative for further information.
