Wide Board Finished Floors and Walls
Extremely durable and beautifully hand finished
Porter's Finished Floors and Wall Panels are made from beautiful French, European and American Oak, hand brushed or scraped to achieve an elegant worn finish, and protected with UV cured Aluminium Oxide clear finish for long lasting protection. We specialise in wide boards and pre-finished timber for floors, walls, cabinetry and ceilings, and source our product from the world's leading manufacturer. We also stock solid oak stair nosings (finished on all sides), cover strips for cabinetry and wall panelling. We also have available on request FSC Certified (100% pure) timber, where we adhere strictly to the FSC's Chain of Custody Compliance (Forest Stewardship Council).
The Benefits of Porter's Engineered Timber Floors:
Up to 12 layers of quality ply are used to ensure stability. When compared to solid timber floorboards, the longer spans give a smoother more seamless finish, and the superior engineering eliminates "cupping", a warping problem that can occur in solid timber, especially in wider widths. Engineered timber floors are extremely stable and many of the problems that effect floor laying, such as drying, shrinkage and moisture expansion, are eliminated or reduced.
Porter's have been specialising in paint finishes for over 30 years, with innovative floor finishes being no exception, and now we can offer exquisite custom finishes that are difficult or not possible to do on site. Our standard range of finishes is shown on our website, but please talk to us about custom colours, specialised bleaching, pickling, metallic finishes and sand blasting. Some of our floorboards are described as "smoked" or "fumed". Ammonia fuming is a traditional process for darkening and enriching the colour of oak, discovered by observing the way that oak beams in stables darkened over time, a chemical reaction of ammonia with the natural tannins in the timber. This beautiful rich cappucino brown colour runs throughout the thickness of the boards, so even after sanding they retain their colour.
All Porter's Finished Floors are carefully checked before delivery to ensure end-matching (where grain of timber follows on where two floorboards join at the ends), and colour matching is correct. To ensure a perfectly seamless finish, Porter's Finished Floors are tongue and grooved both on the sides and at the ends. Our boards are also supplied with sufficient random shorter lengths, deliberately done to allow the installer to avoid repetition of joins. The boards are a luxurious 20mm deep, incorporating 6mm of oak over a multi-ply wood base. This thick top layer is deep enough to be sanded and refinished approximately 4 times, if required. Wall panels are 10mm deep, including 2mm of solid oak over a ply base. Also available are solid oak cover strips and solid oak nosings in matching finishes.
