This sustainable oak flooring is available in both engineered and solid oak. On display in Monmouth and Cheltenham Showrooms.
Character Grade We love this grade - it is how an oak floor should look! There may be cracks, flecks and rays in the wood and variation in colour - this is what Character is. Whether engineered or solid you will always get the response "What a beautiful oak floor". Grading is always a staged process starting at selecting sustainable tree trunks, visual selecting of raw then finally after kiln-drying and production. ATC offers oak in Prime (which is very clean and often referred to as Smooth), Character and Rustic. Character grade makes a great floor and is our favourite for the natural, warm and welcoming range of Oak that we offer.
Natural - This is where ATC applies clear, eco friendly Osmo oil to the boards. All done in house in Monmouth Yard. Applied to the character grade this will enhance all the gorgeous knots, rossettes and cat's paw marks. Osmo oil is a natural oil finish that gives the oak a warm, rich and lived in feel and is very easy to maintain. The first coat applied in-house by experienced ATC Finishers. Engineered wood is perfect for underfloor heating. Natural is also available in Distressed and Smooth grades in either boards or blocks
The ATC solid or engineered oak block floor is as traditional as it gets. All reminds us of our school days or walking round the museums
A very good, flat, dry, sound subfloor is always required for blocks and ATC can make this work if required
The traditional size is normally about 230 long x 70 width x 20mm thickness and is available as solid and engineered. The best style is Herringbone with a double border around. We also fit the Herringbone pattern without a border - the blocks can just flow under the skirtings When oiling the floor the room will have to be empty and left overnight to dry and will require two coats
