1. What is wood flooring?

The wood used in manufacturing the wood flooring are well treated and kiln dried to 10% moisture content. Our wood flooring are 100% solid wood. They are export products. They are part of the consignments that are shipped to the European markets regularly. They are not inferior to what you see in Europe or USA. They are cut with great precision, and they fit together properly during installation.

They are available in different thicknesses – 10mm, 14mm & 15mm. The 15mm come in T&G, while the 10mm & 14mm come in strips.
Sometimes, they are glued down directly on the concrete (depending on the moisture condition of the concrete floor) or a sub-floor is created if necessary. They are finished with water-lacquer or oil-based wood finish.
