End Grain Oak Flooring
There are several end grain systems including individual blocks.
The problems are always with installation and also expansion and contraction. We are now producing our mosaic end grain oak flooring system which is easy to fit and more stable than most end grain floors. The problem with end grain floors is that the ends of fibres of the tree that feed it during its growth are open unlike conventional floorboards.
This means that it will absorb more moisture and conversely dry out quicker than conventional floor boards.
We always recommend oiling these boards with a viscous natural oil to start and then a top grade hard wax oil to finally seal the surface and edges. We also manufacture the traditional end grain blocks that are 47mm square and 20mm thick but these are normally made as square edged panels or as stair treads.
Both these products can be seen below. Please call 01666 504015 for more details.
Not quite right? We can make wood flooring in any finish or colour.
