Whether you’re replacing aged wooden floorboards or undertaking something more substantial such as a commercial project, installing new flooring can add character to a room, and potentially increase the value of your refurbishment project.
Quality wood flooring is a commitment and we’ve experienced so many issues where builders use inexperienced trades people especially on herringbone and chevron parquet.
Fitting flooring needs a particular skillset and expertise, so it’s vital you’re confident the job will be complete to the highest standard, especially when the stakes are high on a large-scale commercial project for example.
Another reason to look to use a professional wood flooring fitter is that you have the security of working with someone backed up by qualifications and accreditations. The expert team at the Solid Wood Flooring Company have more experience than any other company with more than 30 years in the industry and connections with the best fitters in the business.
We also offer a substantial amount of advice in our technical centre, and ensure all our staff are fully trained as we set the standard of offering the best, most friendly and professional service in such a diverse industry.
The professional floor-fitters we work with aren’t only experts but are also creative. The detail is in the setting out and installation and you’ll not find better fitters anywhere in the UK. Generally rooms in a building aren’t evenly shaped making it problematic for inexperienced floor installers to fit. We only recommend the most proficient wood flooring contractors who possess the skill and know how to tackle tough areas and angles and have the right tools that’ll ensure flawless installation of wood floors.
The standard shown in the images we’ve shared is typical of what you can expect if you use our fitters. The importance of ‘blending’ the colour variation in the parquet is also extremely important so that you get the full beauty of the wood where living with nature is so much better than products made with fossil fuels.
Backing up our industry experience is our environmental credentials. More than ever before people are making eco conscious choices when undertaking their daily lives. This has now reached fever pitch with businesses being put under pressure to source their products ethically, which is why we are FSC-certified and have the globally recognised PEFC-certification.
It’s also more important than ever to have with influential business associations like the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) encouraging companies to work with suppliers who have the certification. By being certified, we’re demonstrating a commitment to conserving biodiversity, curbing deforestation, and acting socially responsible, which are all of great importance to us, as we want to pass on reassurance to anyone who works with us.
In regards to qualifications, there are no legal requirements like you would have when working with gas and have to be on the gas safety register, so that is why it’s so important we have our environmental credentials and our technical library. They’re places that our clients and the architects, interior designers and tradespeople alike can visit to get the full depth of our knowledge, latest information on our products and the standards we uphold.
As well as this, usually the cost of the flooring will be double that of the fitting, but one of the most important aspects is how the floor is fitted. However, sourcing your product from The Solid Wood Flooring Company immediately means you’re getting the best price on your wood flooring, so having a skilled person on the job also saves money in costly repairs down the line, using their experience to ensure you have long-lasting results.
There are some tradesmen who specialise and focus on a particular component of flooring, such as installing wood floors. Others tradesman will generalise in flooring and turn their hand to fitting carpets, vinyl and other styles of floor. With the variety of options available, you have to ensure you’re using a professional and your flooring gets the treatment it needs and deserves. On a commercial project for example there is no room for risks when there is a brief to fulfil, so you want confidence in the output of the project, and the only way to do that is to hire a specialist. Once again this means you’re saving time which on largescale developments is a huge benefit as there are enough tough choices to make and stumbling blocks that can occur when it comes to installing wood flooring.
Another one of the exciting aspects of any project is choosing the style of flooring you can have in your refurbishment. At the Solid Wood Flooring Company, we help you in your choice as our website is broken down into key categories based on finish and colour. You can also view our collections and see all our herringbone parquet flooring.
Traditional herringbone parquet wood flooring has been around for centuries. The ancient Romans used herringbone patterns for their roads. Herringbone wood flooring is growing in popularity again and we have more than 25 different versions of herringbone flooring from 70mmx250mm solid herringbone to 70mmx350mm engineered up to 120mmx600mm. All are from stock for immediate delivery, making us the perfect choice for maximum efficiency on your project.
There are many benefits to having herringbone parquet flooring, with one of the biggest being the end result gives a luxe feel to your space. With the modern preference being wood flooring as opposed to carpet that dominated up until the ‘90s, hygiene and cleanliness win the day as the floors are easy to clean and don’t hold any dirt.
The herringbone pattern makes hardwood floors very strong, since the pattern absorbs high compression and provides structural stability, making it a perfect choice for larger projects or simply a space needs to withstand high traffic.
The structure of the herringbone design will also give your floors the appearance of movement, which helps make the room feel more spacious. This means versatility really is a key element of what makes the flooring so special. Whether it be understated elegance or big impact you are looking for, the design of the herringbone flooring can fit to your requirements.
This, coupled with our recommendation for fitters to lay your flooring helps the whole process of updating your home or completing your interior design project easier. If you’re also looking for a more affordable flooring solution, that combines the highest quality at the best price, then this flooring is the answer.
Herringbone is one of today’s most popular designs and is very similar to chevron flooring – the main difference being herringbone floors are rectangle boards, whereas chevron boards are cut at an angle. Modern types of herringbone flooring have a ‘click’ system means installation means clicking each board with the next to create a floating floor that doesn’t require any glues or adhesives, and can be easily taken up again if there may be a need to redecorate or redesign the space in the future. With Herringbone flooring offering such an interesting visual and the quality delivering durability, we foresee you falling in love with this flooring from installation.
The range also supports our environmental credentials we possess at The Solid Wood Flooring Company as it is FSC-certified, leaving you safe in the knowledge you are making the most sustainable choice when it comes to sourcing your wood flooring. We’re FSC-certified in addition to the earlier certification mentioned, which means our produce checked at every stage of processing to ensure the wood is ethically sourced from FSC forests.
You can also give your project the style and charm that can increase the value and overall appearance of your venture by investing in our Natural Smooth Oak Herringbone Parquet Hard Wax Oiled Flooring. Ultimately, the overall feel and look of your wood floors will depend on the type of wood you choose, so selecting a high-quality flooring such as the one we have mentioned avoids issues such as warps, splinters, fade, etc. These issues can occur within a short period after installation if the quality of flooring is not prioritised.
We can supply any quantity of our floor ranges, and if we don’t have the right wood flooring for your requirements, as a UK based manufacturer we can make bespoke wood flooring for you. This would be subject to minimum quantities of 500sq m, as per our personal service, we want to meet the needs of your project and accommodate at any scale.
In summary, with the help of The Solid Wood Flooring Company and a professional wood flooring contractor, you can select the best wood for your house-floor based on factors such as environmental conditions and climate. Hiring professional wood flooring contractors and employing a quality supplier such as ourselves will help in providing great outcomes whether you’re in need of a completely new flooring installation or a wood flooring repair.
