Original oak boarding is increasingly hard to find and so we keep in stock a newly sliced oak board. This boarding is North American and is a high sustainability material. It is a character grade, is tongue & groove plus end matched, has been kiln dried down to between 8-10% and has stress relief grooving. We keep 7½” as our stock item with a 6″ board to meld for an older look, we also sometimes have 9½” subject to availability.
We are also now stocking engineered oak boarding (FSC certified) which has become very popular of late. It has a 6mm veneer of solid oak cross grained to ensure strength, stability and versatility, ideal for more damp environments such as bathrooms. It is fully load bearing or can also be glued directly onto a concrete or existing floor. Our stock item is an 8″ width, tongue & grooved plus end matched and suitable for underfloor heating. Other sizes available to order.
Also available, to order only, is pre-aged engineered oak boarding.
