Timber is a natural material. There are variations in colours across all timber, even from the same species. No two trees are alike, just like no two pieces of timber are the same. There are a number of different finishes or coatings that can be applied after the floor is laid. The finishes we use are:
Solvent Based Polyurethane
Available in Satin, Semi-Gloss and Gloss. Solvent based polyurethane coatings brings out the warm colours of the timber and suit a wide range of homes. They are known for being an extremely tough and resilient coating for solid floors.
Water Based Finish
Available in Matt, Satin and Gloss. Water based finishes keep the timber colour lighter than solvent based finishes, giving a more modern lower sheen look. Environmental compliance is a common reason for choosing to use a water based finish, as they give off low VOC’s. With low odour and faster drying time it provides the least disruption for customers.
Oil Modified Urethane
Available in Gloss and Satin. Oil modified coatings enhance the timber grain and give beautiful deep natural timber colours similar to solvent based finish. They tend to cure slowly in cold weather.
