Introducing our new Technical Library

Covid 19 Update Read More

We are open for business as usual (although there here is nothing usual about this situation) with our transport company (Brooks Transport) who are designated by the government as critical to the covid response. We are still delivering direct to door or site, (however collections or visits to the warehouse are not possible.) Our IT systems allow us to work from home so our staff are protected. Please Call or Email Us for samples or orders. Our factories are back to full capacity and the supply chain is operating effectively which can be seen here. As a trade supplier we have a minimum requirement of 50m2 for any samples and supplies. Please call 01666 504015 if you require less. For Government advice please click here. Even with these steps we have made, we must pull together, support one another, and get through this as a group, a family, and feel proud to say to our wider community we are critical to the Covid-19 response, and we will support it for as long as we are able. Stay safe, stay well, look after yourself, and each other.

The Building Centre will be open fully with the café back and exhibitions in place from Monday 12th April 2021. In the meantime, you can book visits in advance by contacting The Building Centre directly on 020 7692 4000. Please note that we do not have any representatives based at this showroom, but you can call us during your visit to talk through the options on display on 01666 504 015.

The Tetbury showroom is strictly by appointment only, maximum of two people with social distancing and face coverings required. Please call 01666 504 015 to book an appointment.


Introducing our new Technical Library

Posted in Technical By Solidwood Company

Here at the Solid Wood Flooring Company we are experts in all things to do with Solid and Engineeered Wood Flooring. From the structure of the wood in each floor we produce to guides on how to fit Herringbone parquet flooring.

To make it easier for all users of the website, we have added all of our useful documents onto a Technical Library page that could be found in our Technical Centre section.

This collection of documents is being added to all the time, to give you the most comprehensive library of information on wood flooring. We believe by giving you all this information, it will avoid potential disasters when selecting a new floor. We know Wood Flooring is an investment, but with the guidance in the Technical Library, we are confident the right wood floor in the right environment can last a lifetime.

You will find the Technical Library split into sections for ease of reference, and these sections are:

•    Our range of Certificates showing our Responsible Wood Sourcing Efforts
•    SATRA Test Results for Wood Flooring Slip Resistance
•    Type Testing Results for Wood Flooring
•    Understanding Wood and it’s properties
•    Information and Advice on different Subfloors
•    Information on Under Floor Heating and Wood Floors
•    General Information
•    Wood Floor Installation Guides
•    Chevron and Herringbone Parquet Fitting Guides and Advice
•    Cleaning and Maintenance information

If you have any other questions about wood flooring, our team of experts are happy to discuss them over the phone on 01666 504015 or via email on
