Photos of floors that clients have laid from our timber:
10 inch oak
9 inch pine: photos above and below
colour in the photos is true in as much as that means anything in
artificial light. The images are not digitally retouched or manipulated
except for toning down a dog and a bright pair of trousers that detracted
from the floor!
The colour of timber is enriched after fine sanding by oiling or using
proprietry finishes. Some idea of the true colour can be seen on a
sample by wiping it with a damp cloth or a furniture oil/wax.
As you see in the photos, 100-year old timber can include
knots and nail holes and 'imperfections' as well as the grain pattern.
This is part of its charm and character making for a genuine period
Architects, builders and private
individuals for country property conversion, cottage renovation, restoration,
extension and new build. We export to Europe for businesses and private
property renovation and build.
Much is Victorian but there are
also individual reclaims from later 20th century buildings. Your new
reclaimed floor boards will have a unique history!
All large timber taken out
is cut as required to customers' needs. It is used for repair, renovation
and new build where solid and completely seasoned wood is of benefit.
It is particularly recommended - pine or oak - for real wood floors
old and new. We also supply oak beams cut from 100- or- so-year-old
wood, again for restoration or extension rooms or entirely new building.
