The company is offering a wide range of laminate flooring, solid wood and engineered hardwood products to customers who are looking to save money while making improvements to their homes.
The company is also offering cork and bamboo options to customers who want to decorate their homes. Bamboo flooring is a considered as a sensible alternative to timber flooring since bamboo is sustainable and it has a faster growing cycle. This means that it can replenish itself faster than wood. As compared to oak wood which matures in 40-60 years, bamboo can mature in 3-5 years. Bamboo is also strong and durable and is available in various styles and colours. Most importantly unlike solid hardwood, bamboo flooring it does not succumb to expansion or shrinking due to which customers will not have to face any problems after installation.
Cork flooring on the other hand is renewable and is made with recyclable materials. Cork flooring is typically made from cork bottle stoppers and creates a smooth surface which has high thermal and acoustic properties. This material is ideal for kitchens.
