Real Wood Flooring Service
A new floor adds character to any home or office. Our wood floor installation services are second to none.
Solid wood flooring is the original wood flooring. Planks are cut from the log and are then kiln dried to a stable condition normally between 8 to 12% moisture level. They are then machined into various widths, lengths and grades. A profile is given either square edged or tongue and grooved. They are then finished at the factory or in many cases are left unfinished to be finished on site by the installer.
Engineered flooring is a hardwood veneer on a cross ply base. It is more stable than solid wood flooring and has many other advantages. The installation methods can be very different to Solid wood flooring. It comes in various thicknesses from about 10mm to 21mm.
At Woodpecker their traditional high standards of selection and machining of every plank of flooring – instituted in the original small factory where the first floors were made – are still applied today now that their manufacturing facilities extend to thirteen state of the art factories around the globe. Every board goes through a rigid quality and grading process to ensure that the highest possible standards are met to guarantee your perfect satisfaction
Your satisfaction guaranteed with a 25 year warranty
Each Woodpecker floor carries this outstanding reassurance of our confidence that you will not find a better value product anywhere on the market. Your satisfaction depends on our care and attention to detail, such as the careful selection of the trees before they are felled and the way in which the timber is sawn, stacked and dried.
In most cases the sawn timber is air dried for over twelve months prior to a 2 stage kilning and dehumidification process to achieve maximum stability. It is then carefully selected for grain pattern, colour variation and knots, to provide the many varied appearances that are available within the Woodpecker range.
Wood flooring too cold? We have a full range of carpets too.
