Timber floorboards and flooring
Our range of timber flooring is available in hardwood, softwood and reclaimed timber. With a wide range of dimensions available, you’ll be sure to find the perfect flooring at Stan Dawson.
Timber flooring not only looks fantastic but adds a great deal of value to your property due to its durability and design. A solid timber floor will last a lifetime and can often be quite expensive, depending on where you source your materials. The quality of damp proofing installed in your property should also be considered when looking to install timber flooring. This is because tImber absorbs moisture, and many hardwood floors can warp under damp or humid conditions. This is why we recommend the installation of quality damp proofing and also treating your timber flooring prior to laying it. This may be a slightly more expensive process but will increase the durability and value of any room with quality, hardwood timber flooring.
