SOLID TIMBER FLOORING
Our helpful and knowledgeable Showroom team can assist you with all of your flooring enquiries. Barwon Timber has a number of staff who are qualified hardwood visual graders. We have one of the largest timber flooring Showrooms in Victoria displaying over fifty timber flooring products. We invite you to come in and have a look at our display.
In addition to the flooring on display, we are able to source almost any specie and size of flooring you would like. We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality timber products available sourced from reputable mills. We handle and store our flooring carefully to prevent damage and limit hygroscopic effects in the product.
We work closely with our supplying timber mills to ensure the flooring we supply is of a consistently high standard. We have refined our supplying mills to those who are leaders in the industry. Our supplying mills value the responsible harvesting of timber to ensure the protection of our forests and the longevity of our industry. You can be confident flooring supplied by Barwon Timber has been harvested responsibly, machined by reputable timber mills and tested stringently.
SUPPLY AND INSTALLATION SERVICE
We have supplied and installed floors for many of Geelong, Melbourne and the surrounding regions leading builders. Much of our work is received through referrals. We use highly regarded trades and products to complete installation and finishing. Once your floor is completed, we provide ongoing assistance for care and maintenance.
If you are interested in this service, please come in and see us in the Showroom. The Quotation Request sheet will help you put together the information we need to quote your job.
If problems occur with flooring it can be messy and expensive to repair. Timber is a hygroscopic material so it will absorb surface and atmospheric moisture and react by expanding and contracting. To help minimise movement in flooring, it is recommended that it be dried to standard moisture levels. In addition to our suppliers stringent testing, we moisture and oven test our flooring. Timber flooring should have a moisture content between 9 – 14% (10 -15% for Cypress).
Please be aware timber will react to local moisture and climatic conditions. We recommend you discuss this with your builder or our experienced staff. In addition to our testing, we store, handle and deliver our timber flooring carefully and under cover. We also check our flooring boards using callipers to ensure consistent machining is achieved.
We do all of this to minimise the risk of problems occurring in your timber floor. You can be confident flooring supplied by Barwon Timber is sourced from reputable timber mills, stringently tested and handled carefully.
