Q Can we lay floorboards and parquetry direct to concrete?
A Yes, providing the moisture content of the concrete is less than 5.5%. If it exceeds this level we can waterproof the floor using Densi-Proof. Our recommendation would be to use Densi-Proof on every concrete floor. In fact we can install over almost any flat, level, sound sub floor structure.
Q What types of finishes can I have on timber flooring?
A Polley’s Finer Floors are committed to using and recommending Australian made, environmentally friendly coatings in either gloss, satin or matt finish.
Q Does the timber come from managed and sustainable forests?
A Yes, all the Timber hardwood products we supply are formally acknowledged (Australian Standard AS4707-2006) as being sourced from legally and sustainably managed certified forests. This ensures the ongoing sustainability of our national Australian hardwood forest resource. Every hectare harvested is regenerated.
Q Is timber flooring cheaper than carpet?
A A beautiful wood floor need not cost much more than a quality carpet, indeed it will work out cheaper in the long run. Unlike a carpet, your timber flooring will last for years and will increase the value of your property.
Q Is timber flooring healthy?
A Timber floors are easy to clean and free from dust. A wood floor could help minimise allergies and respiratory problems and protect your family’s health from dust mites.
