Solid strip timber flooring can be fixed direct to joists, to sheet subfloors of particleboard or plywood over joists, plywood or battens over concrete slabs and in some locations, direct fixing to the concrete slab is common. The traditional timber floor is renowned for its strength, durability and character. Throughout its life, solid strip timber floors can be rejuvenated to near new condition by sanding and refinishing. It is ideal for new houses or to match existing floors in renovations and they can be top (face) nailed, or secretly fixed in combination with adhesives.

Engineered flooring is manufactured with a decorative layer of timber (called a veneer or lamella) bonded over layers beneath which is often timber. This not only provides some additional stability but also maintains all the appearance and characteristics associated with solid timber flooring. Various factory coating systems are now used with some products to highlight and colour the grain and other techniques to texture the surface for a stunning appearance. Most engineered flooring is pre-finished although some are designed to be sanded and finished after installation. Engineered floors may be laid as floating floors, glued to a sub-floor as an overlay and in some cases fixed as a structural floor on battens. Pre-finished engineered floors are ready to walk on once installed.

Hurford Hardwood has developed “Fourteen” for people who love the look of wide hardwood boards but don’t want the traditional top-nail appearance in their floor. Fourteen has been fully designed and tested with the support of the “Australian Timber Flooring Association” for optimal performance as a floor covering. Fourteen’s unique attributes have been designed to work in harmony with the fixing methods and the subfloor to ensure a balanced stable floor is achieved. Fourteen has been specifically designed for secret fixing to plywood or particleboard using adhesive and concealed mechanical fixings. Fourteen has been pre straightened using a proprietary method which Hurfords have developed and enables clean straight lines to be achieved when the flooring is installed, as well as assisting in a faster installation process.

Hurford Roasted

Hurford Roasted is a process that has been developed to enhance timber flooring properties. It uses ultrahigh temperature and humidity to change the molecular structure of the hardwood and creates an extremely stable, more durable, denser product while darkening the natural colour. Heating wood to extreme temperatures permanently changes several of its chemical and physical properties. The change in properties is mainly caused by thermic degrading of hemicelluloses. The Hurford Roasting process is carried out in a purpose built Kiln in which the temperature is increased to 185–215 ºC, depending on the processing level. The colour of the wood fibre changes drastically as the ultrahigh temperature is introduced – the higher the temperature, the darker the change to colour of the fibre is. The colour change is permanent and penetrates the entire piece of hardwood, thus eliminating the need to stain flooring to achieve a rich dark coffee brown colour. The Hurford Roasted process increases greatly the stability of flooring. The process reduces the normal shrinkage and swelling that traditional Kiln Dried hardwood can experience by up to 50%, making it an ideal flooring product. The Hurford Roasted process increases the natural durability by 3 to 4 times greater than the same species unroasted, without the use of chemicals to treat the timber. Since no chemicals are required and only water and heat are used, the Hurford Roasted process is extremely environmentally friendly.

Parquetry comes in two forms, block parquetry and the less common mosaic parquetry sheet. Parquetry provides many options of combining block orientation, size and species to transform floors into an outstanding feature. They can be laid to various subfloors and, similar to solid strip timber floors, they can easily be rejuvenated throughout their life.

What an amazing all-round experience. Our initial contact was with Sarah and we were impressed with not only her knowledge of products and options, but her responsiveness, professionalism and willingness to accommodate. Sarah and Sandro were passionate in providing a custom colour that we were ultimately thrilled with, with quite a detailed process to ensure satisfaction.
