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.

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!
