As the name suggests the Floorboards are supplied and fitted with no protective coating. The advantage is the customer has the choice of various finishes such as a choice of coloured Wood Floor Stains, unfinished hardwood oak floors can then be stained if desired with a view to closely matching the existing colour of furniture, wood panelling or other wood items. A choice of protective finishes such as lacquer (varnish) or Hardwax oil is available.
When the time comes to choosing a hardwood floor, either solid hardwood or engineered hardwood, prefinished flooring will demand less time to install. As the name suggests the hardwood floorboards have been factory sanded and prefinished with a varnish or hardwax oil thus eliminating the finishing process on site.
Most antique wood flooring is available from two sources: recycled oak beams or floorboards from demolished buildings and barns.
Due to the ever increasing demand, antique wooden floorboards are becoming a diminishing resource and therefore subject to limited availability, long lead times are therefore not unusual from the time of ordering to installation.
Hand Scraped Wood Flooring is an alternative to antique wood flooring. As the name suggests, the planks are hand scraped to form a lot of character. Real hand scraped wood flooring is very expensive due the amount of labour involved to produce such works of art, It is unfortunate that there are now manufacturers in the far east who try to replicate hand scraped floors with machines rather than working the boards traditionally by hand. These replicated hand scraped boards are easily identifiable on the market as each and every board will have been machine scraped at exactly the same point on every board thus resulting in no uniqueness for individual boards.
At Naked Floors we produce our own range of Aged and Distressed Oak Flooring.
Our website has been designed to give you an insight to our range of Oak Floors and the range of finishes we offer. Once you have reached the point where you would like to begin a helpful dialogue with us to view our oak samples simply telephone or email us.
For our range of non hand worked prefinished, oiled or lacquered and unfinished oak floors we are happy to provide samples via the post for a small postage and packaging charge. We only charge what it costs us to package and post the samples to you. Should you decide to go ahead and make a purchase the cost of that packed and posted sample will be deducted off your final purchase of Oak Flooring.
The range of hand worked and uniquely coloured floors are not available to purchase off the shelf and are only available for onsite finishing. Therefore samples of these works can only be viewed in the comfort of your own home or commercial property.
We love to talk Wood Floors and appreciate that viewing samples in your hand is the final part of making a decision for your wood floor installation project. As we will already have had initial telephone dialogue regarding a sample you have viewed on our web site, we will arrange a visit to your property with a selection of sample boards so you can take a close up view.
We are just as passionate as you are about creating the exact floor you want to compliment your decor. High-pressure sales is not what we are about, you simply view and choose!
