Driftwood Ontario is crafted from railway sleepers, giving it a beautifully rugged natural appearance. Thanks to the wooden contours that these sleepers produce, every plank within the floor has a distinct individualised look and is a unique installation for each client. Unfilled cracks and rough knots are a feature of this.To maximise its lifetime the floor must be maintained by applying a coat of maintenance oil, ideally every 12-18 months, and kept clean to prevent stains from penetrating the wood.
Engineered flooring is the perfect combination of practicality and authenticity. Constructed in layers, generally made from birch plywood, engineered flooring has a top layer veneer made from solid wood.
It's these layers underneath which provide engineered flooring with a greater structural stability than solid wood floors. This means that it's not as prone to shrinking or warping with changes in environmental conditions.
Due to the makeup of this product it is only suitable for glue down installation.
It also allows for engineered flooring to be installed above underfloor heating, whereas solid wood flooring (in most cases) cannot.
The solid wood veneer in this floor is 3mm in thickness. However, we do not recommend sanding this product, it's natural finish is what gives it its rugged appearance.
