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.

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 Solid Wood Flooring Company celebrates 1800 Trees Planted

Posted in By Solidwood Company

We’re proud to announce that in association with GoneWest we’ve managed to plant 1800 new trees. This contribution has a direct significant impact to the global mission in reducing our communities carbon footprint, planting a future for your business, and of-course, for the planet!

Sustainable Timber Flooring

Sustainability is in our DNA

The Solid Wood Flooring Company cares considerably about sustainability. That’s why we’ve made it our policy to only source from well-managed, legal and sustainable forests and to be responsible to not only to the environment but also our clients, staff and contractors. We unreservedly condemn illegal logging or sourcing material from deforested regions. Therefore, we never harvest materials from rainforests and will not manufacture some exotic wood species, as sadly so much timber from these areas comes from questionable sources. With modern oiled finishes, we can create a vast choice of colour tones on Oak flooring; so it seems so wasteful that people are still selling flooring that comes from our ever reducing rainforests.

We only manufacture our own wooden flooring and can therefore control the sources of our raw material unlike a large number of our competitors who buy from traders.

We are FSC®️ certified and PEFC™️ certified, with full chain of custody. This means that all our certified flooring can be traced to the responsibly managed forest where it was harvested. This is just one of the ways we ensure all our products are sustainably sourced.

We are proud to be part of the “Gone West” mission of planting long term forest in England. Our commitment is to plant 4,000 (four thousand) new Oak trees every year, and if we use approximately 1,000 Oak trees every year for our Oak Wood Flooring it means we are planting 3 new trees for every mature tree we cut down.
