Solid wood styles are:
*Flat-sawn – The timber is cut horizontally, and is considered to be the most recognisable style of wood flooring, as this cut creates a distinctive triangular grain finish;
*Quarter- sawn – The material is cut into quarters, and the strips make up the flooring. Once finished, the flooring has a linear grain pattern;
*Rift-sawn – The timber is cut into quarters, and then complimented with a flat-sawn cut. This creates a horizontal grain finish.
During cutting stage, the material is heavily controlled so that its moisture content is reduced – else, the timber can warp during storage.
Solid wooden boards can be treated with a variety of finishes, which can give you a whole new world of flexibility in terms of appearance.
Boards can be varnished for a clean and glossy finish, or can alternatively be oiled and left untreated to create a rustic, natural look in your property.
Along with versatility, hard wooden floors are incredibly durable too. This means that, with a little love and care, your floor can be as good as new for many years to come.
