Make your home a dream home by choosing different types of wood flooring from Melbourne Wood Floors. Description:- Melbourne Wood Floors installing different type of wood flooring in Melbourne like Solid Timber Flooring, Bamboo Flooring, Laminate Wood Flooring and Engineered Flooring. Melbourne Wood Floors provide cheap timber flooring installation services for your home. Make your home fantastic by use of laminate timber flooring in Melbourne and increase the value of your property. We believe hardwood floors, when harvested and manufactured responsibly, are one of the most sustainable flooring options available. In fact, we carry the largest selection of certified flooring in the Bay Area, when combined with our zero-VOC finishes and formaldehyde-free glues; we offer the closest thing to a zero impact floor available on the market. Solid Timber Flooring:- Solid Timber floors are natural, optionally pre- ﬁnished ﬂoors available in various species and grades (see reverse) suitable for people with allergies to dust and synthetic chemicals. The timber is from well managed, sustainable resources and the quality of the product is monitored closely throughout the manufacturing processes from the forest to sawmills, kilns, moldings and storage. Value for money: Virtually all real estate agents agree that hardwood floors add value to a home beyond their initial cost. A hardwood floor will last as long as your house lasts, so will never need replacing. In fact, in many home demolitions, the hardwood floorboards are removed intact and recycled, so it could be said that your hardwood floorboards can actually outlast your home. Environmentally friendly: Timber is a renewable resource. Today, hardwoods in Australia are harvested from plantations or carefully managed forests, ensuring that supplies will never run out and that minimal damage is done to surrounding flora and fauna. In many cases, the timber industry now actively participates in reforestation and wildlife conservations projects. Bamboo Flooring:- Solid Bamboo Flooring is favorable for its extreme hardness, durability and similarities to hardwood. It’s a great choice for residential and light to medium commercial use. The prefinished flooring has a 7-layer Aluminum Oxide Finish providing protection from everyday wear. This product has achieved Green guard Indoor Air Quality Certification and has been tested for more than 10,000 volatile organic compounds, including formaldehyde, to meet these standards. The tongue and groove profile allows the flooring to be installed on and above grade. The exotic style flooring is perfect for modern, traditional and transitional interiors. Laminate Flooring:- Laminates also fall into the “Floating Floor” category. They usually are made from either a high or medium density fiber body with a “photo” of timber flooring laminated to the surface. Laminate flooring will have a good scratch resistance and are generally economical in price. The range of species used for laminate flooring has grown to include Australian Hardwoods such as Spotted Gum, Black butt & Red Mahogany. Laminate flooring is available in different thicknesses and with new production techniques there are also various textures available. Engineering Flooring:- Commonly known as “Floating Floors”, engineered floors generally consist of a pre-finished timber veneer on a plywood base which is laid over an underlay and can be installed over most flat, solid surfaces. Most have a veneer of around 4mm thick which is re-sandable. Sydney Flooring carry a wide range of engineered floors including Boral “Silk wood”, an exciting range of Australian Hardwoods such as Black butt, Blue Gum, Brush Box, Spotted Gum, Tasmanian Oak & Jarah. Our range also includes Red floor among other brands offering many European and Asian timber species such as European Oak, Heave, Marabou, Northern Box and Kempas. Why Wood? In the last 15 years, the construction industry has taken a greater interest in sustainable wood products, and for good reason. Each year the planet loses over 70,000 square miles of forest cover, much of it permanently. Beyond scarring the landscape, this deforestation is causing a faster loss of species than at any time in the planet’s history. In addition, the carbon footprint of illegal deforestation is greater than all automobiles, trucks, planes, trains, and ships combined. With all this destruction, many people are asking “Why use wood?” The answer is that wood, when responsibly harvested, is by far one of the greenest building materials available. Unlike concrete, steel, and oil (which is used in the manufacturing of nearly all synthetic flooring products), it does not come from finite resources extracted from the ground which can never be returned to it. The carbon footprint of wood products is far lower than most other building products, and in many cases is either carbon-neutral or carbon-negative. This is because sustainable forestry can actually cause an increase in carbon absorption by forests, with more new trees growing in the place of the harvested trees. On the manufacturing side, the transformation of wood into flooring is significantly less carbon intensive than manufacturing carpet, vinyl, or even stone tile. For the homeowner or building professional who is considering the sustainability of hardwood floors, perhaps the greatest reason to pick certified hardwood floors is that it literally saves forests. Especially in the tropics, the demand for FSC Certified wood has actually caused previously endangered forests to be privately purchased and protected, often at much more stringent levels of sustainability than neighboring government- operated forests.
