Our Atlantic Canadian Red Oak is a staggering narrow plank maple floor with a truly North American gloss finish. Because the board is only 107mm in width you have that true to life narrow Canadian hardwood look. As Red Oak is one of the most durable hardwoods on the market you can be confident in the knowledge your floor will last a lifetime. Because it is prefinished you will not have to do anything with your floor once it is installed. Atlantic Canadian Red Oak is a floor which combines, strength, durability and that unmistaken feel of a quality solid board. The natural grading to this board means the number of knots will be limited. Because it is a solid floor, you can sand and re varnish your floor in the future which will bring it back to brand new quality and look.
Why Should I Buy A Solid Floor ?
Solid Floors may be on the decline since the arrival of underfloor heating and the increase of engineered floors but there are still some things you can only get from real timber. As you would expect from the name, solid wood is real timber throughout the board with no plywood or any other backing. A solid floor is completely unrivalled when it comes to that warm feeling underfoot. And is still available in numerous timbers. Going forward, you can sand and re varnish your solid floor which will restore it to its original colour and because your floor is solid throughout you will have an unending amount of sandings in your floor. Solid floors should be either glued down or the more traditional nail down. When being fitted and don’t forget to allow your floor time to acclimatise in your home.
Cleaning and Maintenance:
The cleaning and maintenance of our solid flooring is similar to all wood flooring. A sweep of a brush is all it should take to remove light dirt from your floor. For mopping, it is important you use a damp mop rather than a wet mop. If your floor is too wet, over time it may cause issues from water penetrating the joints. Our Clean Green Cleaner is what we recommend for use on all our floors along with our Dada Spin Mop (both of which are available by clicking the relevant links).
