1. It can be either solid timber that is seasoned timber milled to shape and the surface coatings applied. Its drawbacks are at times there is a risk the seasoning of the timber might not be completed prior to you receiving it and the timber continues to change it’s shape. Peaking at the edges of the installed boards sometimes can occur, and tenting and warping of the boards are other problems to guard against by careful due diligence by the consumer.FCTBT doesn’t sell pre finished solid timber flooring.
2. The alternative to a pre finished solid timber floor is a pre finished engineered timber floor. To help solve the above problems the full body of the timber board is not made out of one homogeneous timber specie. The timber board is “engineered” to produce lasting structural stability. This is accomplished by making a layer of the chosen timber whose features you want, sit on the top of the board, and numerous other timber layers underneath this layer. The bottom layers are generally cheaper materials to assist with affordability of the boards. All the layers are glued together and arranged in a manner to eliminate or reduce future problems.
