Ps. For the budget driven, they are in order from most expensive to most cost effective.

Pros: As traditional as it gets, also allows for complete customization
Cons: The most labour intensive option

Timber Flooring – Traditional

Also known as Tongue & Groove flooring or parquetry, solid timber is the traditional method of flooring, most commonly in Australian species. Solid Timber flooring or Parquetry is the most labour intensive option which also requires on-site sanding, coating and sometimes staining. This can also be a benefit for many as it allows for the selection of custom finishes or stains, it also allows for custom patterns or designs.

Engineered Timber

The beauty of real timber, but engineered to a plywood constructed base and in most cases pre-coated. This provides a very stable option with a huge range of species, colours, stains, sizes, textures and grains. Engineered Flooring is the modern age version of timber flooring with many options and is also suited for DIY. Our range of Engineered Flooring can also be re-sanded and stained, just like a solid timber floor to give you many years of natural beauty.
