Finishes & Coatings

Blackbutt solid timber hardwood floor oil modified gloss finish
Solvent Based Polyurethane and Oil Modified Urethane

Solvent polyurethane and oil modified urethane coatings bring out the warmth & colour of timber which suits a wide range of homes. To see the difference in Solvent Based and Water Based Polyurethane head over to our timber types and species page

They are known for being an extremely tough and resilient coating for solid timber floorboards & parquetry. Solvent based polyurethane can also be used on engineered/floating floors and cork. See sanding and polishing

Our team in the showroom can show you the difference between a water based and solvent based finish.

Oak Parquetry
Water Based Polyurethane

Water based polyurethane keeps the timber colour lighter than solvent based finishes giving a 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 fast drying time it is a popular option of coating.

Water based polyurethane can be used on solid timber floorboards, parquetry, engineered & floating floors and also on cork

Solvent Based Polyurethane versus Water Based Polyurethane

Gloss Levels

All gloss levels are available in each of the polyurethane products:

Stained Timber Floors

We also stain timber floors. We can stain or white wash timber and cork floors and everything in between.

Below is an example on the left is and engineered timber which is a Boral product called Metallon™ Engineered Hardwood Flooring in the colour Tungsten. Our client wanted Chevron Engineered Parquetry in another part of their home and wished it to match. Parquetry Flooring Company installed Preference De Marqué Chevron Engineered Parquetry in raw oak and stained the timber to match the Metallon™. Although the rooms are not completely finished the stained timber floor looks just like the pre-made engineered floor.

Finishes can change “the look” you are going for, tailoring it to your preferences.
