How we work

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.

We now have four main manufacturing facilities specialising in our solid and engineered flooring range, although due to sustainability issues we rarely manufacture solid Oak these days. All our facilities are FSC® or PEFC certified to ensure that all our products are sourced ethically with the environment in mind.

Ongoing Development & Sustainability

The Solid Wood Flooring Company manufactures unique hardwood flooring products with the best managed forest timber products. We will not purchase or machine any timber from the rain forests, such as Teak etc. A good managed forest will plant more trees than it harvests and in North America, parts of Russia and even China this is very much the case. We do not have many of our deciduous forests left now so oak in the UK is in short supply. All our products are unique to us as they are made to our exacting specification and are British quality controlled.

The continual development of our ethical hardwood flooring means we can offer high quality products at competitive prices.  As a member of the Timber Trade Association, The Solid Wood Flooring Company sets industry standards with their approach to testing, sourcing, research and development.

Being proactive with sustainability ensures that more trees are planted than harvested for our timber products.

We have earned a three Tree rating with the WWF, which is the highest that can be given for our environmental and sustainability statements and procedures.

Wooden flooring products are just like us - every tree is individual and unique as this is how nature works. The grain and colour variation on any single species of tree will be different, just like every human being is different. Even identical twins will have personality differences even though they may look alike. The seasons and climate changes will have an impact on trees and can alter their hue, colour and structure.
