Prime American Cherry Solid Wood Flooring
Our Prime Cherry Flooring is machined from sustainably sourced solid American cherry timber. The wood displays warm colour tones, a subtle grain pattern and minimal knots.
Due to its unique nature our solid cherry flooring is usually only available as a random width floor. Board lengths are generally between 2m and 3m but some may be supplied shorter than that, depending on timber availability at the time of machining.
A unique hardwood floor which has timeless appeal and beauty. The heartwood ranges from light to dark reddish brown which contrasts beautifully with the paler creamy-coloured sapwood. The boards are available in a random width which adds to the look of the floor. The boards are fairly light when first machined but will darken significantly over the first twelve months, developing a rich, burnished auburn colour. Due to this dramatic colour change, areas of the floor which are covered by furnishings may show lighter than uncovered areas of the floor.
Our solid cherry wood flooring is available in random width boards. Random width floors look extremely appealing and the effect can greatly enhance the appearance of the finished floor. The boards are usually supplied in a roughly equal linear meterage of 89mm, 114mm, and 140mm widths (though this may occasionally vary, depending on raw materials). When fitting a random width floor, you should lay full rows of each individual width. You will need to allow a little more wastage than when fitting a single width floor; we recommend a minimum of 15%.
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.

BHW Van (our own vehicle)
Door to door delivery using our own vehicle and driver. When your order is ready, we will contact you to arrange a convenient delivery day. On the day of delivery, we will provide a delivery time-slot (usually when our driver is en route). On arrival, our driver will transfer your order from the vehicle to your doorstep.
Pallet Track (kerbside delivery)
Overnight kerbside delivery by an independent Pallet Track courier, using a palletised network of transport and 17.5 tonne vehicles. In special circumstances, where access is limited, it may be possible to arrange a smaller 7.5 tonne truck but this is dependent on the size of the load.
When your order is ready, we will contact you to arrange a convenient delivery day. Pallet Track deliveries are “kerbside”, i.e. the driver will move the goods to the back of the wagon where possible, and it is the customer’s responsibility to move the goods from the wagon and into the property. It is essential that a delivery day is chosen when there are sufficient physically capable people present (potentially all day) to facilitate the offloading process. On the day of despatch, we will notify you to confirm that your order has been despatched. Updates regarding delivery windows and approximate delivery times are the responsibility of the courier.
Premium Delivery (door to door)
Door to door delivery using our own vehicle and driver to areas beyond our usual delivery scope (offered as an alternative to Pallet Track courier). When your order is ready, we will contact you to arrange a convenient delivery day. On the day of delivery, we will provide a delivery time-slot (usually when our driver is en route). On arrival, our driver will transfer your order from the vehicle to your doorstep.
Applies to smaller flooring orders only (usually up to 10m2).
Our timber is kiln-dried and should not be stored in a cold, damp environment (e.g. garage or outbuilding). On delivery, the packs should be taken straight indoors into a dry, heated building. All concrete, plaster and wet work should be fully dried out prior to storage and/or installation. Our hardwood flooring has been factory acclimatised and further acclimatisation is not necessary prior to installation.
