Our engineered compressed bamboo flooring has 7 coats of ceramic glaze on the wear surface and the boards are sealed on all sides with polyurethane to protect them from spillage.
In addition to this the floor is clamped up tight when laid however all spills should be cleaned up as soon as possible.
Cleaning with a slightly damp or dry mop should be used for spills.
However in my 14 years experience of laying bamboo and timber flooring in kitchen areas, I have not had one complaint from any of our satisfied clients.
Yes. Carpet attracts and holds many allergenic spores, dust-mites, bacteria, fungi, animal dander and other unhealthy microbes. These irritants are dispersed every time you vacuum.
Standard timber means that you are more likely to get 2nd grade timber or timber that may have imperfections such as gum veins, knots and cracks. This type of timber works well in older style homes, creating a more natural look and feel to your abode.
Select timber means that you are getting the very best top of the range grade also known as classic, this grade has minimal imperfections and gum veins.
Before we are able to install your floor, we need to check the sub floor level and moisture content as well as inside of your home to insure your flooring will stay firm and secure without warping, cupping, swelling or splitting apart.
Please remember the preparation of your sub floor is a key factor to a good result and will be a more secure outcome for the timber once its laid. The floor preparation will take one day, to ensure the barrier is dry, when we install the timber we normally use 2 – 3 of our team members who are experienced craftsmen. If you are using raw state timber we will direct stick the timber with glue to the concrete or ply Once laid the timber will require a week to settle prior to coating. Sanding, sealing and coating will take up to 3 – 4 days. We aim to have your floor done within 2 weeks from the time of commencment to the completion of your job.
Yes it does . It depends on the type of structure and design your staircase is, wheather the steps are standard, extra wide or long, open ended, kite steps, curved or tread steps. Also the type of timber you require and wheather you want straight edged or bull nosing on your steps, theses all need to be taken into account. Please call Jae on his mobile as he has installed many different types of timber on staircases in Western Australia since 1998.
No you don’t have to, we supply & fit matching beading between the floor boards and existing skirting boards. If you don’t like the beading we can remove the existing skirting boards and re fit them after the floor has been installed. This will be an extra cost.
Yes we can install the flooring on most types of tiles. Laying between 10mm to 19mm thick boards over existing tiles, this can create height discrepancies to adjoining floor coverings and you may need to adjust the clearance height of doors. We can install special reducers to certain areas to match the floor level.
Yes, We tidy up and bag all the rubbish and all wastage. Sometimes we may need to charge a minimum cost.

What’s the advantage of using an Engineered wood floor over a Solid nailed down floor?
Engineered timber floors can be installed in areas where there is slightly higher relative humidity levels. Engineered timber flooring is more stable therefore it is a great choice to use in summer homes where the humidity is alot more lower especially when no one is living in the home. Manufactured engineered flooring does not waste valuable prized timber below its wear layer, they can also tolerate floor heating systems because of the cross plyed layers, purchasing engineered flooring also helps conserve our forests.
Yes, as long as the moisture content of the concrete does not exceed 4%. Basements are known to have higher relative humidity due to being under the ground. It is recommended to use a Floating engineered wood floor which allows the use of a 4-6-mil plastic vapor barrier in any areas where there is slightly higher moisture conditions.
No, like anything else you purchase there can be big differences in quality. Some manufacturers use a lower quality timber along with low grade, cheaper bonding glues for their ply layers. Their milling could also be off and their finish quality could be poor. I generally suggest staying away from names you have never heard of and only use Name Brands like Pure Timber flooring who deal with manufacturers that have been around for a long time and warranty their products. These will be the ones who will stand behind their flooring if something should go wrong.
Yes, installing pre finished timber flooring is very easy. It is an easy and rewarding way to save a lot of money especially if you float. Our flooring comes with easy to follow instructions. Standard tool knowledge would be an advantage. If you purchase your flooring from Pure Timber Flooring, we will gladly take the time to walk you through your installation.
It is important to remember that all manufacturers recommend adding a 5% wastage to your actual square meterage. This added 5% is recommended to cover boards that you may not want to use and for cutting and fitting wastage.
Some flooring styles may require more or less tools that are mentioned here but generally you will need some small basic tools such as, a Combination Square, Miter saw, Hammer, Jig saw, small table saw, a pull bar, a few packages of small wood shims and a tapping block.
Yes, beside from the smooth surface styles some timber flooring manufacturers also produce character or hand scraped versions that are available. These show more light and dark boards along with more pronounced character with the possibility of small pinholes and knots. What is popular nowadays is a rusticor hand scraped look also black stained or lime washed veneers have become more versitle in modern homes.
Purchasing prefinished flooring eliminates the time consuming chore of the sanding and refinishing and gives you the added benefit of a perfect finish all done for you at the factory. Most of the brand name manufacturers carry a variety of stained colors to choose from and are coated with a durable 7-10 coats of the UV oiled or Aluminum oxide finish. Compressed Bamboo is coated with ceramic glaze.
Using prefinished flooring allows you to move right back into the room after installation. No waiting for days while the finish is being applied and drying!

Congratulations on purchasing flooring from Pure Floors. We hope you will enjoy your new floor at home. We are pleased to offer you the following Warranty on Engineered Oak flooring and Compressed Engineered Bamboo products installed by Pure Floors installation team. This warranty is extended to the original purchaser of Pure Floors. This warranty is not transferable to subsequent owners.
Pure Timber flooring warrants to the original purchaser (undersigned) that the floor you have purchased will remain free from manufacturing defects in lamination, assembly, milling, dimension and trading for as long as the original purchaser owns the home. Being natural products, timber flooring will continue to expand and contract through heating and non-heating seasons. Properly installed floors may consequently experience some separation between boards at different times over the year. If separations do occur, they will not be covered by this warranty.
This warranty does not extend to the finish polish or the surface coating applied to or on the flooring.

Engineered products are approved and warranted over radiant heated subfloors provided that the floors are installed in strict accordance with the installation guidelines pertaining to radiant heated subfloors: Solid wood products are not warranted.
The following guidelines must be applied throughout the life of the floor in order to reduce the affects of radiant heat on engineered wood floors. Even when these guidelines are followed it is still possible that your flooring may experience some cracks (checking) on the surface, gapping between boards, or delamination of boards. These symptoms are NOT covered by this warranty. The temperature and humidity levels described below must be maintained otherwise any warranty, express or implied, will be voided.
• To minimize the effect that rapid changes in temperature will have on the moisture content of the wood floor an outside thermostat should be installed. If one is not present, suggest to your customer that this should be considered. Unlike conventional heating systems, radiant systems work most effectively and with fewer traumas to the wood floor if the heating process is gradual, based on small incremental increases in relation to the outside temperature.
• Prior to installation proper moisture testing must be performed. Moisture content between substrate and wood flooring should not exceed 4% for engineered wood products
• Radiant heating system must be in operation and running continuously at least 6 days prior to installation.
• For glue down installations turn system off immediately prior to installation and after the flooring is installed, slowly raise the temperature to the preferred comfort level (over at least 5 day time frame) beginning two days after installation or at the onset of colder weather conditions.
• The radiant heat system must be controlled and the surface temperature of the flooring must never be allowed to exceed 25°C. The proper humidity level must be maintained within your home at all times during the year. Use of a humidification system may be required to maintain proper humidity levels to avoid excessive drying of the wood flooring.
• Seasonal gapping should be expected.
