Timber features and grades
So you have decided to go with a timber floor - great! Now we have to think about colour, hardness, grade, natural shrinking/expansion, board width/length..... Don't worry! With over 20 years experience Gus can help with all these decisions.
Several grades of timber may be available, depending on the species you choose: You might prefer a grade showing natural features such as knots, gum vein and insect markings, or perhaps a smoother grade to capitalise on the colour of the timber.
