Our Brushed Provincial Grade European Oak flooring has rich rustic charm and character. It contains a fair amount of natural figuring and an abundance of splits, checks and large open knots up to 75mm in diameter. Due to its rustic appearance it is a popular choice for country cottages, barn conversions and commercial applications such as pubs, restaurants, churches and museums. When finished with oil, the timber has a golden biscuit tone which gives a lovely light and airy feel to any room.
All the raw timber we use is sourced from either PEFC or FSC certfied suppliers. The timber is kiln-dried to a moisture content of 8-10% and kept at an ambient temperature in our heated and humidity controlled factory. All our wood floors are manufactured to order, from the same batch of timber. We pre-plane the boards before final machining which results in accurately machined floorboards which are extremely straight, flat and a pleasure to fit. Mass produced imported floors are not made, or quality controlled, to the same high standards as a British Hardwoods wood floor.

- Very satisfied overall
Overall I was very satisfied with the floor which when fitted has plenty of character. The knots and splits are what gives this floor its unique appeal and was particularly suitable for our newly built oak framed barn. However I was a little disappointed at quite a large number of heavily knotted boards which had holes where the knots had fallen out during manufacture which made fitting the floor more laborious. Inevitably with more cutting there is more wastage hence I have given value for money only four stars.
