SOLID TIMBER FLOORING
WHY SOLID TIMBER FLOORING ?
Timber flooring is our bread and butter, since establishing ourselves in 1947, we’ve gained vast experience ensuring that our customers receive only the highest quality timber flooring in Melbourne.
The mills that supply our domestic hardwood flooring all utilise sustainable milling practices making sure there is minimal impact to our environment. Market Timbers mills conduct their logging operations in accordance with Australia’s strict Forestry guidelines, having high consideration for resource sustainability. This allows the unique ability of regeneration without the need for replanting to be utilised. Market Timbers understands the great importance of increasing our environmental awareness whilst recognizing our responsibilities to the environment.
GRADING OPTIONS FOR TIMBER FLOORING IN MELBOURNE
Along with a variety of sizes, our solid timber flooring is also available in a variety of grades. Below is a brief description of the three common grades available in timber flooring:
SELECT GRADE: Timber contains little to no natural imperfection. Boards are chosen carefully to comply with strict Australian Standards. Depending on individual species, Select Grade has a much more uniform appearance and has a very clean look.
STANDARD GRADE: Timber contains slight to moderate natural imperfections. These imperfections can include timber’s natural features (ie. Gum Knots, Gum Veins, etc.) Depending on individual species, Standard Grade has a little more colour variation between the boards and can have a slightly lower length specification. Pricing is slightly cheaper than Select Grade.
FEATURE GRADE: Timber flooring in a Feature Grade has a very rustic appearance. All natural features and imperfections are permitted. Feature Grade timber flooring is the lowest priced grade. Depending on individual species, colour variation between the boards can be heavy and can contain sapwood. Visit Market Timbers – your local Timber Flooring Melbourne specialist!
