Hardwood flooring is a natural and beautiful product which is why we recommend viewing a large format sample at one of our store in Leeds & Wakefield.
Solid Wood Flooring
Engineered wood flooring is precision-made of layered sections of solid wood bonded together. With Ted Todd engineered wood, the grain of each piece runs in a different direction to the adjacent layer, enhancing strength and resilience and reducing the wood’s natural tendency to expand and contract. This means they are less susceptible to movement from moisture or heat and thus are recommended for use with underfloor heating. Engineered wood flooring options, unlike solid wood, do not need to be nailed or glued to the sub-floor. Ted Todd is unique in that all of our engineered wood flooring boards are constructed of nothing less than 100% hardwood.
Engineered Wood Flooring
The traditional flooring choice, each plank in these ranges is a single piece of solid wood, expertly cut to varied lengths and widths, sometimes bevelled and enhanced by a range of finishes.
A solid hardwood floorboard gives an unrivalled feeling of tradition, they are hardwearing and resilient, can be re-sanded many times and can last well over 100 years. A key characteristic is what we at Ted Todd refer to as ‘shape’, by which we mean how the wood lays. Solid wood does not sit flat on the floor; it has living form and subtle contours which respond to the environment and create a gentle but noticeable sensation underfoot.
You know when you are walking on a Ted Todd solid hardwood floor; the extra long plank lengths, the random widths and above all, the sturdy traditional feel that leaves you with no doubt that you will be leaving a legacy.
Ted Todd and the Environment
The largest selection of FSC Certified Hardwood floors in Great Britain – over 200 FSC Certified floors available.
Here at the Floorstore Direct we believe to be successful, we have to responsible for the environment that we woork in, thats why we work alongside companies like Ted Todd take it as their own responsibility to know the exactly origin of their timber. If suppliers can’t prove where the timber has come from or that it has not been sourced in accordance with their strict environmental and ethical policy, they simply do not do business with them.
They check the tree species in which they trade in to make sure that they are not CITES listed and where possible try to source independently verified FSC certified flooring which they supply under our FSC Chain of Custody certificate TT-COC-002154. Some people in the trade are cynical – “it may be FSC but how can you prove it?”
An independent FSC-accredited certification body goes to where the wood is grown and checks the forest management against strict environmental, social and economic criteria – and they keep visiting and checking – at least every year. If the forest management passes, then they sell the wood as FSC certified. Every stage from the forest until we sell you FSC certified flooring is independently checked by an FSC-accredited certification body.
