Quick Overview

An authentic aged, fumed and distressed engineered oak floor with plenty of character and rustic appeal. The boards can be supplied with an optional hardwax oil finish or supplied unoiled - ready to take a finish of your own choice.

Board Width
Typically 185mm. Our floors are machined from natural materials and this can occasionally result in a slightly narrower width of 180mm. Each board you receive will be exactly the same width. If you are matching up to a floor we've previously supplied, please Contact Us.

Board Length
1.8m-2.4m average (some shorter lengths will also be supplied)

Board Thickness
Overall 20mm (comprising 5mm European Oak on 15mm Multi-Layer Plywood)

Important note: Fuming is a chemical process which darkens the wood in a natural way. Different boards and different batches of timber will react differently to the fuming process, and as such, photographs on the website, and samples, are provided as a guide to tone only, and are not an exact colour match.

Our Tradition Aged Oak floor lends rich, rustic charm to any period property. Newly machined oak boards are passed through our custom-made distressing machine which imparts random indentations to the surface and edges. The boards are then wire brushed which raises the grain of the timber and adds texture to the surface. Lastly, the boards are fumed, a chemical process which darkens the timber. Each board will react differently to the fuming process, producing a natural range of dark, medium and lighter shades; we recommend loose laying boards before fixing to achieve an even spread of tones. Knots come filled and sanded as standard.

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.

We use numerous ways to deliver our floors all around the UK mainland. This includes delivery by our own vehicles and also the use of independent couriers.

  2. Go to the shopping cart.
  3. Type your full delivery postcode in the 'Calculate Shipping' box and our website will calculate the shipping method and the accurate shipping charge.

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.

Courier Delivery

Applies to smaller flooring orders only (usually up to 10m2).

Storage information

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.
