BOARDS AND PLANKS
There is nothing like a beautiful sustainable natural oak floor and we will have a floor to suit you - choose between specification, colour, grade and look
ATC staff are here to answer any questions, full explanations on terms, and to assist you to choose exactly the engineered or solid oak floor that is perfect for you
Always a good variety of widths
Boards can be fitted in regular widths - so all boards exactly the same width, but as natural sustainable engineered and solid European oak, will have a lovely varied and mixed grain throughout. This is important as you want wood to look like wood!
Alternatively, boards can be fitted in random widths - twenty years ago this is how all flooring was fitted. You would use all the wood you had and mix the widths. This gives a very traditional and different look
All boards come in random lengths - but good lengths. This is the sustainable way!
Choice of thickness - ATC can advise which is best for your particular project
Character, Rustic - for that great lived in, warm and inviting look. Character grade is full of knots, shakes, cat's paw and rosettes to give it that distinct pippy rich oak feel
Smooth, clean - for that clean, light and fresh - or dark contemporary look, very attractive. Prime or Select grade is much cleaner less marks, still will have some - a tree is a living product! - and works well with contemporary, cleaner, white, grey oak floors and lighter floors or very dark, rich, black oak floors.
Smoked and Fumed - just gives that smokey depth particularly works great with grey and dark
Distressed, aged - looks as if the floor is part of the house
Raft - old looking natural floors, the saw is dragged over the wood for this effect
Range of colours from White, Light or Grey oak flooring - perfect for that wow factor
Natural, Warm and Welcoming - traditional natural oak range
Rich, Dark and Dramatic - rich, aged and smoked oaks as displayed in this section of the website
You can decide to have a pure natural colour, warm honey tones or richer and darker shades; to bring out the grain in an engineered or solid sustainable oak floor. The first coat can be applied at Monmouth, Monmouthshire and then delivered to your home.
If you cannot make up your mind on colour ATC can fit unfinished and then apply a colour, to suit your particular lighting and home, if this helps. Please note that the oil takes overnight to dry and this will mean that you will lose the room longer.
Not only boards, but we have a vast range of blocks (Parquet) flooring:
Herringbone, Basket, Brick or Chevron pattern blocks
Big long blocks - The 'Amsterdam look' in all colours
Versailles Panels or Continuous Weave blocks
Chantilly and Petite Jerdi panels
Create and Urban ranges from Ted Todd Flooring
Whatever the look you are trying to achieve, contemporary, clean, natural, traditional, rustic or just different!
The best way forward is to visit Monmouth or Cheltenham. ATC is a well established and respected, family run business. The Founder and Owner - Stephanie Harris - runs the business with her daughter - Scarlett - as her partner.
You will normally find Stephanie in Monmouth and Scarlett in Cheltenham - both showrooms are backed up by extremely efficient, experienced and helpful staff, so well worth popping in for advice and to see the wood on display.
Monmouth has a bigger selection of flooring - we have more room and afterall this is where all the preparation is done so you are very welcome to see the timber in its raw state and the work we do. If you cannot make the normal working hours because of work commitments, please just request an evening or weekend appointment in Monmouth and we will be happy to oblige
ATC not only have display but good samples for you to take home and try out in your lighting
If you bring a measurement with you we can give you an idea of cost. You can see a lot of the floors we offer and discuss in detail
It is vital that the engineered oak has been machined to perfection without any short cuts in the manufacturing to save on cost. ATC would recommend having all the wood tongue and grooved on all four sides - the sides and the ends - just makes for a better fit and afterall we are Fitters. Otherwise delamination can occur if not correctly machined and you will end up paying twice. ATC can advice you on this. Please look for sustainable engineered oak flooring only
You will need solid oak for handmade thresholds, framing fireplaces, sections by patio doors, skirtings and to finish off the work
We would recommend using experienced Carpenters for this work, as the end result is always worth it. It is all down to the finishing touches these can make or break the final look
ATC offer a full supply, fit and finishing service all inclusive price - no hassle, no hidden costs - fully professional work from start to finish. All our work is guaranteed and carried out by our own in house Carpenters
This is a service we offer throughout Monmouth, Monmouthshire and South Wales, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and The Cotswolds
