There are a number of different timber installation methods:

Parquetry floors, Perth

Parquetry Floors

Parquet blocks can be milled in a variety of sizes. This is a more time consuming installation process as the blocks are usually smaller than normal milled timber floorboards. However, for a unique finish, parquetry floors can certainly provide the wow factor to your home.

Direct stick floors, Perth

Direct Stick Floors

Cost effective however relies heavily on the evenness of the concrete floor. If the concrete floor is uneven this will show when the timber floors are installed so the slab may need to be ground and leveled prior to installation. Moisture barrier is laid and then adhesive applied to the floor. The floorboards are then weighted down or nailed, temporarily to the ensure the floorboards stick to the slab.

Plank on Ply Floors, Perth

Plank on Ply Floors

Plywood is initially installed and the timber floorboards are then installed via the direct stick method or floating. This is particularly useful when the concrete slab is not level, which as mentioned above, will cause the timber floorboards to look uneven.

The time it takes to install and finish a timber floor depends on the size of the area and finish required. After a floor has been laid we need to wait 3-4 days before sanding the floor. After a floor is laid we wait 3-4 days before sanding the floor. During this time you may walk and live on the floor if you need to.

Stained Black Jarrah Floorboards

New Age Timber Floors was asked to transform this Jarrah floor in South Perth. The owners wanted the Old, Reddish, Jarrah floorboards, stained black. To start, we sanded the floor. This time around the only floors to be sanded and stained were the bedroom and ensuite. The owners want the rest of the floors to be completed at a later date. The next step was to change the colour of the Jarrah floorboards to black. Mark did this by using a stain, on a test patch, to achieve the desired colour. He then, stained the floorboards and finished the floors with a Matt finish. The transformation is impressive. The owners were extremely happy with the final result.

Knitted Blackbutt Floorboards

New Age Timber Floors installed Blackbutt floorboards for this project in Willetton. The owners had a games room added to the back of the house and were renovating their kitchen. They wanted their timber floors to flow seamlessly throughout their house. Due to the renovations, the new floorboards had to be knitted into the existing floor. To do this, we ripped up and cut some of the exiting floor so we could "knit" the boards together. We then installed the rest of the wood floor. Finally, we sanded both the existing and new floorboards and coated them with a water based finish. This was to ensure a consistent finish across the floor. The floor looks like one uniform floor from the dining to the new games room. Therefore, the owners were very pleased.
