We are very concerned about the environment, so we install floors that are fully certified by the international timber trade (see “ protecting the origin of species”).
Stability and variety
The beauty of wood is its warmth and versatility. It is also renewable and recyclable. We buy timber that has its own distinctive hardness, colour, grain and finish. We can also source speciality products that are extremely hard wearing and products suitable for underfloor heating.
Preventing scuffs, stains and burns
Where there is heavy footfall, speciality hardwood floors are the answer for shops, offices, museums and other public buildings. As specialist fitters, we are asked to repair or re-fit floors in listed buildings. In the home, the kitchen area is open to spills and burns but we can apply sealants to help prevent too much damage.
We only fit certified wood; it may come from almost any part of the temperate or tropical regions of the world: For example Oak, Beech and Elm from Europe: Bubinga, Ipe, Massaranduba and Wenga from South America; Zebrano from West Africa; Mahogany from the Caribbean, South America, Africa and beyond; Teak, Merbau and Kampas from Asia; Maple and Walnut from North America.
Saving the forests
Some woods are rare and, consequently, expensive. We only fit wood that has been responsibly forested and ethically sourced. And we deal exclusively with hardwood floor suppliers who are committed to the conservation of the world’s forests including the World Wildlife Foundation’s Save the Forest.
