Timber Flooring

If you want timber flooring installed in your home, we are the team you are looking for. We install high-quality timber floors, and the standard of our work is exceptional, not least because of the amount of preparation work that we put in at the start of the process.

We can supply and install your timber floor, with both new and recycled flooring options available. A range of wood types and finish options are available, too, including native New Zealand, Australian, and island timbers.

Plus, we install other types of flooring, including engineered timber floors and laminate flooring. Give us a call today to find out more and to get a quote.

Benefits of Solid Timber Flooring

Timber flooring offers a range of benefits, whatever style of house or type of decor you have in your rooms. These benefits are the reason wooden flooring is a popular choice among homeowners in Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, and many other locations on North Island.

The main benefits of solid wood flooring include:

  • Highly durable and will last longer than almost any other type of flooring available on the market
  • Visually stunning as well as being luxurious and sophisticated
  • Can be machined and installed in any location
  • Range of timber species available to ensure you get the look you want
  • Range of finishes available to create the final appearance of your new floor

Expert Installers of Wooden Flooring

When you come to us, we can install a wooden floor you have already sourced from a supplier, or we can supply and install. Both recycled and new wooden floors are available. All the timber floors that we supply come from leading manufacturers.

Our installation teams have extensive experience in the installation of wooden flooring across Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, and elsewhere in the North Island. We also have strict quality standards to ensure the highest levels of workmanship.

Our process includes making sure all necessary preparation work is completed before the floor is installed. Proper preparation is the best way to ensure the floor doesn’t develop problems in the future, particularly problems caused by moisture. Our preparation work prevents uneven surfaces, gapping, and cupping.

Part of our preparation work at Mainframe Flooring includes installing a vapour barrier, particularly if you have a concrete floor. In other words, the area under the floor is just as important to a successful and long-lasting installation as the surface. By installing a vapour barrier, we prevent moisture that rises through concrete floors from damaging the timber.

Timber Flooring Options

From species native to New Zealand and Australia, to American oak flooring, you’ll find the perfect floor for your home.

You’ll find details of the flooring that we offer below, including images of how the timber looks. However, we recommend you make an appointment to visit our showroom to see samples of each type. Seeing samples is the best way to get a full appreciation of the wood.

Below is a guide to our list of flooring types:

  • Colour – description of the wood’s appearance.
  • Dimensions – the board dimensions that are available.
  • Lengths – length of the boards.
  • Density – indicates the stiffness, hardness, joint strength, fire resistance, and ease of manufacturing of the timber.
  • Janka Test – measures how resistant the wood is to denting and other types of wear. The higher the number, the more resistant it is. This measurement indicates the force required to embed a steel ball into the wood.
