Hardwood flooring offers the perfect balance of luxury and practicality for any home. It is good looking, long lasting, warm underfoot and a design chameleon, so there's no need to change your floor whenever you change your colour scheme. Wood flooring will actually add value to your home, as well as making it more saleable, so investing in this beautiful, tough and durable material makes sense all round.
The hidden benefits of wood flooring
Using more wood in your home is good for your health. It creates a better building environment since it is easy to clean and cannot harbour pollen, pet dander, mould or other allergens. And its increased use has now been linked to mental health too. Indeed, independent research from regions as diverse as Canada, Japan and several mainland European countries all show that significant use of timber in interior schemes has a similar stress-reducing effect to that of nature itself. This favourable effect cannot be replicated with imitation wood.
And since timber is also a cost-effective thermal insulator with an excellent ecological pedigree - every cubic metre which is used as a substitute for other building materials reduces CO2 emissions by an average of 1.1 tonnes - choosing to use it for floors and cladding can genuinely benefit health, wealth and happiness.
Choose wood flooring from the experts
Timber for floors and cladding has been Havwoods' passion and primary focus for well over 40 years. We understand it. We know how it works, and our vast experience has taught us the best type for every situation. This is why most of our wood is hardwood - it comes from a tree which reproduces by flowers and has broad leaves - since, as the name implies, the wood from these trees is usually far harder than softwoods.
We hold large quantities of a huge number of different products in stock, both engineered and solid planks and parquet, and we carry well over 300 different lines in oak alone. Furthermore, we are continually updating our portfolio to bring you the most technically advanced and aesthetically interesting products available anywhere in the world.
Finding the flooring which is right for you
The search facility enables you to browse all of our wooden flooring products by colour, shade, construction, finish, pattern, species, size and grade. You will find floors suitable for both glue-down and floating installations, unfinished or finished with oil or lacquer. Most are perfect to fit over underfloor heating too: full details are provided on the technical information sheets.
Take the time to browse; send for some samples, visit a showroom, or simply give us a call. And remember, virtually all of our planks and blocks are suitable for interior cladding installations too.
