Polish your home
Hardwood flooring has delighted homeowners for centuries. Quality hardwood flooring boasts the timeless and classic feel of the grand homes of the rich and famous, injecting a touch of luxury to any room.
Whereas other flooring options can date quickly and soon look tired and old, the investment you make by installing hardwood flooring ensures your home will look polished and refined for many years longer than carpet, vinyl, linoleum, or tile alternatives.
Reclaimed oak hardwood flooring
Reclaimed Oak boasts benefits for those that prioritize both style and ethics. Using reclaimed oak means your new flooring is installed with ethically sourced lumber that has been previously used for building or furniture. Your reclaimed oak floors will add an individual chic to your home that cannot be replicated.
Oak is popular for it’s hard wearing durability, as well as how highly resistant it is to insects and fungus attacks that can require repair, and cost you money down the line.
The decorative notes of oaks natural knots and appealing grains, and color that improves with age, make it a solid design choice for timeless interiors.

As part of our pre-installation preparation, we will also remove any waste from the preparation process.
Hardwood flooring installation
Following preparation, one of our flooring experts will come on site and install your new hardwood floors.
Please see the item ‘What to expect next’ at the bottom of this quote for a detailed breakdown of the installation schedule.
* Price listed includes labor and on-site visit charges.
We understand how frustrating it can be to make the major decision to install new flooring, only to be met by major delays. Because of this, on acceptance of this quote, one of our staff will call you back within the hour to arrange a date and time for your job. Further, we guarantee your installation will be completed no more than 20 business days after booking your job.
If there are any delays or changes to schedule, we will notify you at least 24 hours beforehand.
What to expect next
While the installation process itself (including preparation with sanding, filling, and cleaning) will take 3 days, the hardwood floors then require further sanding and three coats of polyurethane, adding a few days to your timeline.
Additionally, please be prepared for noise and dust resulting from the installation and sanding process.
All tools, equipment, and supplies are cleared from the site on completion.
A typical schedule of installation is as follows:
- Day 1: Preparation of surface for installation.
- Day 2: Installation of hardwood flooring.
- Day 3: Flooring is sanded, and coated with polyurethane.
- Day 4 & 5: Further two coats of polyurethane applied.
- Day 6: While the polyurethane coating hardens, the floor can be walked on in clean, dry socks, but as it’s not fully hardened, no heavy furniture can be moved back yet.
- Day 7: Safe to move back furniture - job complete.
Note: As polyurethane takes five to seven days to fully harden, care is encouraged and it is ideal to hold off the full seven days to move furniture back into place, to ensure no impact damage or scuffing is caused.
