Oak is a versatile and popular hardwood flooring species with a number of benefits. From contemporary & elegant Premier grade to our Natural grade, which has a more characterful and rustic look. Oak floors are an ideal match for many design schemes.
Why choose Oak Flooring?
Oak flooring is a beautiful addition to a project and can be complementary in a number of settings. The grade of the timber, the finish applied to the floor, as well as the construction of the product all add their own benefits. You can tailor your project by choosing the right floor for you:
A Premier grade Oak floor has a more uniform, cleaner look with lower knot content, giving a more contemporary appearance, while a Natural grade floor is more knotty, with a higher degree of colour variation, resulting in a floor with natural charm.
Because of its physical characteristics, the finish applied to an Oak floor can be used to easily highlight the natural beauty of this wonderful material.
Our Oak floors are available in a number of different constructions. A wide board could be used to open up a space and give a more contemporary, modern look, while a narrow floor will be exciting and visually impressive. Also available are Oak parquet woodblocks or chevron boards, which are a design classic and a great way to achieve a traditional look using a modern product manufactured to a high-specification.
Engineered Oak Flooring
Our Engineered Oak Flooring is available in both 15 and 20 mm thicknesses. Engineered boards less than 18mm thick are known as Engineered Overlay as they require a structural sub-floor while a board with a thickness of 18mm or over is known as Structurally Engineered, meaning it can be laid as a structural floor and has a thicker wear layer.
The multiple layers of plywood backing give support to the top layer of Oak, resulting in a floor that looks and feels beautiful and that can be sanded and re-finished even after years of use.
Most of our engineered Oak floors are suitable for installation over under floor heating because of their stability and moisture content. They can also be laid in all rooms of the house, from bathrooms to bedrooms.
