We use the best quality trees to produce our First grade ash flooring. Pale coloured wood makes up the majority of the floor, although there will be enough olive coloured streaks to make it interesting. The floorboards will be clean and will include only occasional small knots and defects.
The magnificent Barn grade ash floor is a bold choice. These floor boards are taken from the ‘heart’ of English ash trees where the oldest wood is found. Barn grade ash includes it all; large knots, wandering heart splits and stunning streaks of dark olive colouring.
Our range of solid ash flooring is supplied in a traditional mixed width format, with each floor comprising of three widths. We do this to make best use of each ash tree we cut and because it is the way it has been done for hundreds of years. The board widths are designed to be laid randomly to create a natural looking floor.
To see our full range of hardwood flooring, please come and visit our beautiful oak framed showroom at Wootton Bassett, Swindon, where we display all of our floors as well as many other products.
Each solid ash floor is created to order. Please allow three to four weeks for production. We can also supply skirting and architraves to match your choice of floor.

Our solid hardwood floors are supplied machined to a tongue and groove profile (T&G) on the long edges. The ends are cut square but may need retrimming on site. The corners are sharp rather than bevelled. The boards are reversible so that you can choose the best face when laying.

|Coating||Our solid hardwood floors are supplied unfinished. Once laid, the floor will need sanding and finishing with your chosen flooring specific coating.|
