Timber & Laminate

There is no substitute for a quality timber floor.

Timber is a natural product and each log is unique in colour and character. Even within one species there will be natural variations. Some species will exhibit small variations while others vary greatly. Each timber floor will be different and unique in its beauty.

Timber Grade
The grade of timber relates to the appearance of the natural characteristics of wood, such as gum vein, insect holes, surface checks and other natural marks. It should be noted as timber is a natural product even boards of the same species will differ in colour and markings.

Classic Grade
Classic Grade is a subtle feature grade of timber flooring that provides a low level of natural features. The low levels of natural feature present the floor with a uniform look that is best suited to modern, minimalist styles.

Australiana Grade
Australiana Grade is carefully graded to include the most interesting and moderate natural features to enhance the look of a timber floor.

Natural Grade
Natural Grade is rustic displaying a high level of natural features. This grade offers a unique, aged look with extenuated natural features.

Sanding and Finishing
There are many different types of finishes available ranging from oils through to water based polyurethanes. Choose the best finish to suit the functional and aesthetic requirements of the job.

The Janka hardness test measures the hardness of wood. It measures the force required to embed an 11.28 mm (0.444 in) steel ball into wood to half the ball's diameter. This method leaves an indentation. It is a good measurement technique to determine the ability of a type of wood withstand denting and wear. It is also a good indicator of how resistant it is to sawing and nailing.

Cortazzo Bros - Bamboo Flooring

Technically a grass, bamboo is one of the world's fastest growing and strongest plants. Bamboo can be harvested every 5 years, making it a more sustainable alternative to timber, which can take up to 60 years to re-grow. Because of its sustainability qualities, high durability and stylish appearance, it comes as no surprise that bamboo is increasingly demanded by home owners and architects alike.

Floating floors are a popular alternative to solid floors as they are cheaper, quicker to install, easier to maintain, use less of the natural timber resource and yet still give the look of a genuine timber floor.

The veneer is pre-finished (so it can be walked on straight away) with up to five scratch and stain resistant coatings, making it very durable against general wear and tear and stains.

Engineered floors can be one, two or three strips wide. Single strip is generally the most expensive, giving the closest look to a solid timber floor.

Laminate floors give the look and feel of a timber floor, but with all the durable qualities of laminate. A laminate floor is extremely tough and durable (tougher than engineered floors) making it an ideal family floor, or for light commercial installations

These floors can be purchased in a click system meaning the floor can be laid quickly and easily and damaged planks can also be easily replaced should it be required.
