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.

American Black Walnut Chevron Flooring - How to Finish

  • Wood Flooring Supplier - The Solid Wood Flooring Company
American Walnut makes a beautiful wood floor with its hue and grain variation. It is quite absorbent, so will soak up oil finishes and will look “dry”, this is normal for walnut.
 

With our walnut flooring the choice is yours on how you want the finish to look

You can create a glossy finish with Lacquer but this sits on top of the wood rather than penetrating the cell structure and keeps a natural look. It will also scratch, the only way to repair this is to re-sand. With oiled walnut it is easy to maintain and easy to repair.

The image below shows the walnut being fitted by our expert installers who we can introduce to any of our clients.

Chevron Flooring Fitters
As you can see the surface is very matt, which is normal. Some people will like this and others will want a more satin shiny look. To increase the shine a little, you would apply some thin maintenance oil with the proper professional equipment, which you can find here and buy online here!
 

For a higher satin finish look you can use a buffing machine and satin hard wax oil, which will take time to dry but it will give that extra protection and bring out the grain and colour of the walnut. The images below show the floor after this has just been applied during the installation of the chevron.
