Why is Solid Wood Flooring such a good choice?
Before jumping to purchase any product, it’s always worth considering how it has been developed and treated and why this makes it a good choice. With solid wood flooring, the wood is generally dried in a kiln until an 8-12% moisture level is achieved. This gradual drying process helps to prevent the swelling or bowing of wooden floorboards when the weather is particularly cold or humid. With winter just around the corner this feature can be essential, ensuring that no unsightly gaps or stress fractures appear as a result of the flooring changing shape. If you’re sourcing your wood directly from suppliers like Unique Bespoke Wood, it may also be wise to store your floorboards in the room of choice for a period of time before installation, so that they may acclimatize to the humidity and temperature of the room.
In order to achieve a uniform look and an easy Tongue and Groove installation process, the solid wood flooring will often be planed before and after the kiln drying process. This ensures they remain of an equal size and thickness, allowing for a relatively straightforward installation process with an attractive finish. The edges of the flooring will usually also be beveled, which allows for a slightly larger margin for error, without any noticeable inconsistencies or gaps in the flooring. Furthermore beveled edges will also help to prevent costly maintenance by stopping dust or dirt from accumulating underneath the wooden floorboards.
