01. The Brief

Here we have two modern and luxurious two townhouses in the heart of Yarraville. Provincial Floors worked closely with the builder and architect to provide the homes with a timber floor that was beautiful and sophisticated without the use of stains or coloured oils.

02. The Ingredients

After thinking about the brief provided by the architect and builder, Provincial Floors recommended some high-end timber flooring solutions. With a modern and contemperary facade, American Oak Timber Flooring couldn't be looked past. American Oak is a light timber that is frequenty used in the U.S due to it's pronounced grain patterns and excellent staining capabilities. 155mm x 14mm American Oak Flooring was specified in this project. In order to keep the space light and generous, Provincial Floors used it's 'Cruda Finish' to deliver an 'invisible finish' with close to zero gloss level. This was the perfect combination to compliment the finishes and style of these homes.

03. The Processes

In this case, the timber flooring substrate was a concrete slab. After the substrate was checked and approved for level and plane, our craftsmen installed a plastic moisture barrier and plywood over the slab. By doing this, the floor is helped to mitigate moisture and also fixings are provided through the plywood overlay. Our team began the installation of the flooring using trowel glue as well as secret nails - inline with industry standards. Provincial Floors uses Australia's most expensive and reputable glues that are certified to meet some of the toughest ‘green’ product requirements in Europe and the world. This ensures the floor is well adhered to the plywood without the use of harmful chemicals and properties. After months of work on this project by other trades, Provincial Floors conducted the Sanding and Polishing. Advanced sanding machinery and techniques were used to remove the impurities from the American Oak's surface ready for coating. Sanding was followed by coating of the floors and staircases on the project.
