American Oak Balmain East, SYDNEY NSW
This naturally beautiful and warm American Oak floor was created working closely with the Builder, Home Owner & Architect. The flooring was USA production 180 x 21 mm Prime Grade American Oak which was milled by Hurford Wholesale. In this instance we installed the wide board flooring over varying substrates including 68 x 32 mm hardwood timber battens and particle board. It was necessary to top nail the 180 mm wide boards to properly fasten, secure and comply with our ‘best practice’ installation methods. Learn more about our installation methods in Our Services.
Initially the specification called for the direct staining of the American Oak flooring, but after much deliberation it was decided that a subtle, natural coloured finish would work best, so we put forward Bona ‘Naturale’. Naturale has a very high wear resistance and is classified R10 (low risk of slipping), making it suitable for use on floors as well as stairs. The R10 rating satisfies the new Building Code requirement for slip resistance to stairs, download Bona ‘Naturale’ Slip Certificate.
