  • How should I store my Solid Wood Flooring prior to fitting?
    Solid boards need to be acclimatised for 14 days before fitting. This can be done by following the guidelines below:

    Store the boards in the environment in which they are to be laid. Leave the boards in their cartons, with both the top and bottom end open. Store at least 500mm away from any wall Support the Cartons off the ground at a minimum of 400mm along the length.
  • What are Solid Wood Floor Boards?
    Solid Wood Flloor Boards are made by machining kiln dried timber to a regular size within fine tolerances.
    Each plank is individual and will retain the characteristics of the tree that it came from, as every tree is individual. Solid Wood will react to changes in humidity and moisture and can move by more than 5% of its original kiln dried measurements.
    This is why solid boards must be acclimatised prior to fitting and care must be taken when installing them. Always use a professional fitter!
  • What are Engineered Wood Floor Boards?
    Engineered boards are constructed from layers of Hardwood Ply and a final Solid Hardwood wear layer. These are Glued and Fused together in controlled factory conditions to produce a reliable, strong product.
    Taurus Hampshire uses only the strongest backing and the construction of our boards are 8-11 layers of Cross Ply Hardwood, with a final wearing layer of either 4, 5 or 6mm of Solid Wood..
  • Do Solid Wood Floors look better than Engineered Wood Floors?
    Not at all, the top layer of an Engineered Board is the same genuine Wood that you have in a Solid Board. The finished look of an Enigneered Wood Floor will be identical to that of a Solid Wood Floor.
