  • Finish Types

    • Square edge

      Square edges are most regularly found on unfinished timber flooring, as unfinished timber flooring can be sanded to accomplish a level surface before the timber flooring is finished. Square edging gives a level, consistent appearance to a floor which makes it difficult to distinguish between floorboards from a distance. 

      A few people lean toward square edges over beveled edges because it dispenses the possibility of dust and dirt settling into the grooves. However, beveled edges that are sealed correctly will be easy to keep clean.

    • Bevelled edge

      Bevelled edges are commonly found on pre-finished wood flooring and also some unfinished wood flooring. A bevelled edge is especially important on a pre-finished floor because this floor type is factory finished and may have minor height variances between boards, which a bevel disguises very effectively. Unfinished floors do not require bevels because they are usually sanded to achieve a flat surface before being finished. However, there are some unfinished products available that come with bevels for those who prefer that look. Bevels enable you to distinguish between planks from a distance and often vary in size between brands. Larger bevels, especially with lighter coloured floors, can be a hassle as dust and dirt that becomes trapped in the groove can become very noticeable. Smaller 'micro-bevels' are a popular choice as there is less of a cavity for dust and dirt to be trapped in, while still achieving the same look.

    • What finish type is best for me?

      Lacquered floors are the most convenient for busy people or those on a smaller budget. There is no hassle of having to routinely apply more coatings. The floor is highly durable but will show signs of wear with age, as most surfaces do. 10 years or so down the track if it becomes quite worn you might consider getting it re-finished. Until then… just keep it clean and no worries!

      UV Cured Oil floors are also very convenient, give you the beautiful natural look of an oil but are slightly less hardwearing than a polyurethane. UV Cured Oil floor is best suited for someone who really wants the look of an oiled floor but doesn't have the time to care for it routinely.

      Natural Oil floors are more of a constant care, best for those who are energetic and have plenty of time on their hands, or those with a bigger budget who can allocate the care of the floor to a professional. A Natural Oil floor can be revived on demand - any time it starts to look dull a new oil coating can be applied to make it look like new again. In Commercial situations such as restaurants this is particularly useful to ensure the place remains looking tidy and presentable. In Residential situations, the need to revive the floor is likely to be a less frequent occurrence as there is generally much less foot traffic.

    • Natural Oil

      Oil finishes work by penetrating the wood surface and working in the cell structure to protect and nourish the wood. They give a soft lustre to the wood, providing a more natural appearance than a polyurethane.

      A Natural Oil finish is applied in several coats and allowed to dry naturally between coats. Typically 2 or 3 coats of oil are applied. Natural oil finishes require more maintenance than a polyurethane finished floor and are not as durable, but they also have some added benefits. When a Natural Oil floor is starting to show signs of wear it can be replenished by simply adding another coat of oil - this will smooth over the scratches and revive the look of the floor.

      Natural oiled floors can benefit from a coat of maintenance oil on installation and should be maintained in the same way periodically. How often you will need to oil the floor depends on usage.

    • UV Cured Oil

      Oil finishes work by penetrating the wood surface and working in the cell structure to protect and nourish the wood. They give a soft lustre to the wood, providing a more natural appearance than a polyurethane.

      A UV Cured Oil finish is cured using a UV light, a quick process that provides a good sealed coating to the floor and ensures a consistent finish. UV Cured Oil finishes offer the soft natural appearance of a typical oiled floor while having the easier care requirements of a polyurethane finish.

      UV cured oil floors will not need a coat of oil on installation but should be treated with maintenance oil periodically depending on usage.

    • Lacquer

  • Floor Status

    • Pre-finished vs Unfinished: What should I choose?

      To decide whether to go for a pre-finished or unfinished floor, you really need to weigh up your priorities. If you are on a tight timeframe, want better convenience and a more predictable cost, a pre-finished floor may be your best option. On the other hand if you have a specific look or finish type in mind that is not available pre-finished, and the cost, timeframe and convenience is not a worry - then buying unfinished flooring and having it finished on site may be your best option. Although unfinished (or site-finished) flooring has a number of benefits over pre-finished flooring, pre-finished flooring still remains for the most part, the more popular option due to its convenience and time-saving properties.

  • Laminate

    • What is Laminate Flooring

      Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product fused together with a lamination process. The main core of the board is usually made of compressed wood chips, the more densely compressed the board, the stronger it is. Laminate flooring replicates the appearance of wood (and sometimes stone) by using a photographic applique layer under a clear protective layer. Modern technologies enable a very realistic imitation, not just in looks but with 3D texturing which replicates feel of real wood or stone.

      Did you find this helpful? YES No
    • What are the disadvantages of Laminate Flooring?

      Because laminate is so densely compressed it does not absorb sound the same as a real wood floor and therefore can be noisy to walk on. A good quality underlay can go a long way towards reducing the noise in this situation.

      A laminate floor, being a man-made product, does not have the variety of a natural wood product. Plank patterns can be repeated as often as every 6 boards, depending on the brand. Care needs to be take when installing not to put the same boards next to each other or it will look unsightly. There is also very little colour variation between boards with a laminate, whereas there can be quite a lot of colour variation with a real wood floor.

      Laminate flooring can't be sanded back and re-coated like a real wood floor so if in future you want to change your colour scheme or look you will need to buy a new floor.

      If the surface of the laminate floor is punctured and the core gets wet, this can cause swelling. For repairs, there is only one option - that is to remove and replace the board at fault. In some cases, due to the joint system, this may not be possible. Also, depending on sunlight and age, the new piece may not match properly.
