Solid Wood Flooring
Solid wood flooring is laid with planks or blocks which are milled from a single piece of timber, usually a hardwood, although pine is also often available. The process is relatively simple. In Europe, where almost all of our solid wood flooring is milled, the log is usually live sawn, which means that it is cut straight across to ensure a nice variety of grain. It is then planed, profiled and sanded and may be bought unfinished, for completion on site, or pre-finished with either an oil or lacquer.
