So many factors will have to be taken into account such as species of wood, plank lengths and widths, tones, textures, design patterns, choice of finish, laying angles, wood grade and finishing touches - all determine how your floor will look.
Come and visit our showroom for some inspiration or we can bring samples to your house. The kettle is always on, or the fridge has some light refreshments if you want to book a private viewing out of hours.
We can provide flooring on a supply only basis, or supply and Install ensuring that this is done to the best standard using high quality materials and fitters. We will then also supply products and advise on the appropriate after care for your choice of finish.
Where to start
Solid or Engineered
Solid is the traditional flooring choice. Comes in various widths and lengths and can be enhanced with bevels and finishes.
Engineered is precision made with layered sections of ply or wood bonded together. The grain of each piece runs adjacent to the next to enhance the planks strength and resilience to movement. This is perfect with underfloor heating and environments that are more susceptible to humidity and temperature change.
Pre-finished or Unfinished
We can supply boards pre-finished with Hardwax oil, Hardened UV oil or lacquer. Your choice of finish may be determined by the look or practicality of the floor, whether it is for domestic or commercial use. Once laid it is ready to use.
Unfinished wood will require a treatment once installed. At Toncam we can do this for you to a very professional standard using the Bona range of products. Click here. We can use a product to keep the floor its natural colour, change the colour using the create range or 2K craft oils, apply high traffic HD laquer for busy commercial areas, or an anti slip laquer to reduce accidents in the right areas.
Square edge or micro bevel
Most common is the use of a micro bevel. This can be all four sides or just down the edge. The sharp edge is planed off at a 45 degree angle adding definition between the planks or blocks.
Square edge gives a close fitting smoother look.
Natural, Rustic, Character grade are often the same thing and will generally mean that the floor has been selected to contain more knots, medullary rays, sap wood, sound heart, and colour variation.
Prime or select is generally chosen for its clean, uniform appearance. Minimal knots, sap and colour variation.
Brushed – Boards can be light or heavy brushed to create a textured feel. Lovely to walk on in bare feet and good for pets as they get the feeling of more grip underfoot. Exposes the harder wearing wood and is not as scratched so easily.
Distressed – If you want the look and feel of an old worn in floor then this can be achieved through various processes. Some of our boards are hand crafted by experts to give a unique feel and appearance.
Traditional boards or something different – As it suggests, you can have traditional long length boards in a variety of widths, or choose something different like a herringbone effect, parquet blocks, patterns and panels, even create your own floor.
Please discuss your requirements and we will do our best to bring your vision to reality.
