DetailsWhen fitting a wood floor to a room, it is important to leave an expansion gap around the perimeter of the room and where the wood floors meets a hearth or step etc. Our low profile beading offers a neat and unobtrusive solution for covering the expansion gap.

- Great service & excellent product
Ordered this to finish off the edging of our patio doors, it looks perfect once finished. Once again British Hardwoods products have done the trick. We have used them to supply all our timber needs throughout our new build from skirtings, architraves, door linings and so on. The quality of the wood is excellent as is the finish - we went for the oiled finish on everything and it is oiled beautifully. The only criticism we would make is that delivery is on the expensive side. However would still definitely recommend British Hardwoods!

- Great product, but extortionate shipping cost
The product itself I am very happy with. I needed a flat profile edging strip to finish off some wooden flooring, and most suppliers only have corner profiles. The fact that the packer piece (the square piece shown in the image) is separate is very helpful, as with laying wooden floors you need to leave an expansion gap - I therefore just fitted this flat over the expansion gap using adhesive. The European Oak colour is a great match to the Tuscan brand oak flooring I was using.
Now onto the downside.... Whilst the price for the edging itself was very reasonable (particularly considering how hard it was to find a flat profile), the shipping cost is just extortionate. I was charged TWENTY FOUR POUNDS (yes - £24!!!) to ship a few meters of edging within the UK. Admittedly the shipment was very prompt (much more so than the advertised 2-3 weeks), but £24 is just ridiculous. Had I been able to find a similar product elsewhere I'd have refused to buy from this company out of principle, but as it was I needed the edging to finish my project so I reluctantly bit the bullet.
So in summary - great product but rip-off shipping cost.
(Our reply: We are glad to hear that you were pleased with the quality and appearance of our solid oak floor beading. Unfortunately, because of the nature of the products we send out (namely timber in long lengths) we have to rely on specific couriers like TNT rather than more economical parcel carriers like DPD. TNT levy a premium charge for any pack over 1.5 metres in length - which applies to just about all of our timber orders. We prefer to show this charge separately, rather than 'hiding' it in the cost of the goods, as we feel that it is fairer to customers wishing to collect in person or arrange their own transport.)
