Our story began in the 1940s when we started selling railway sleepers from beneath the railway tracks of the UK, so you could say we’ve always had a taste for character grade timber! It’s therefore no surprise we now stock a beautiful range of unfinished wood flooring that’s brimming with personality, thanks to a few knots, face shakes, fine splits, fillable defects and colour variations.

Our Character Grade Unfinished Solid European Oak Flooring is a fine example, and being very similar to French oak flooring, it illustrates the beautiful characteristics of homegrown oak. Whether you’re looking to add a touch of class to your home or are keen to replace your flooring with a highly durable and natural material, these floorboards are perfect. We do feel the need to emphasize that they are the genuine article and are therefore not to be confused with North American white oak or cheap engineered flooring!


What are the benefits of choosing unfinished wood flooring?


With unfinished wood flooring, you essentially have a raw material that will need to be protected before it is walked on. The wood has been made into boards but left ‘unfinished’, meaning that no stains or protective layers have been added. You’re therefore able to finish your floor when it’s been installed in your home, meaning it’s easier to match to your other doors, furniture and interiors. There is also a huge range of colour options available, and popular options include lacquers and hard wax oils. With an unfinished wood flooring, you not only have complete control over the final appearance, but you’ll be guaranteed a distinctive and unique appearance which adds warmth, personality and charm to your home.


Our Character Grade Unfinished Solid American White Oak Flooring is another quality option with slight imperfections adding plenty of appeal. As is the case with all of our unfinished oak floorboards, it’s important to remember that the longer you leave the boards in the room in which they are to be laid, the better they will acclimatise before fixing, thereby minimising the potential for movement. If you’re concerned about warping and are currently weighing up your options, be sure to take a look at our Unfinished Engineered Oak Flooring. Not only have these boards been designed to withstand the demands of modern living without compromising on style, they are created to be less susceptible to warping and shrinking when compared to traditional solid wood.
