Commercial wood flooring – 3 Great options for you to choose – Sussex Floor Restoration

Whether you are building a new commercial space or want to improve an existing one, solid commercial wood flooring is an excellent way to bring style and practicality together to complete your project.

Wooden floors come with a range of benefits, such as durability and easy maintenance, and they can fit into any space.

In this blog, we will explore three main types of wooden flooring for commercial premises and explain the benefits of each so you can have a better understanding of which might be right for you.

Solid hardwood floors:

Solid hardwood floors are made up of planks of wood that are then nailed or stapled to a wooden under-floor.

These planks can be made up of many types of wood to achieve different grain styles or colours. Some customers even choose to construct commercial reclaimed wood flooring using pieces of quality reclaimed timber or antique wood to bring a greater element of sustainability to their space.

A great benefit of solid hardwood floors is their ability to be sanded back and refurbished very easily, which gives them a very long lifespan due to how easy it is to bring them back to a like-new look.

This means they are great for areas of high footfall and almost any other setting other than where extremely high load-bearing is required.

Commercial engineered wood flooring:

Engineered wood flooring is designed to allow for expansion in the wood by fusing together layers of solid hardwood to create extra stability.

Like solid hardwood, the flooring installation is a simple process and you can easily choose from many different finishes and colours to ensure the flooring fits in with your commercial space.

An engineered floor is perfect for spaces where conditions fluctuate, as their design means that they are better equipped to deal with moisture and humidity. They are also designed to be installed on top of concrete, which means they are suitable for almost anywhere in your building.

Locking/floating floors:

Locking floors (sometimes known as floating floors) are often thought of as only being an option for those using laminate flooring. However, the good news is that engineered wood can also be used to create a locking flooring system for your commercial premises.

The locking groove mechanism means that installation costs are greatly reduced, as there are no nails or adhesives used to attach the wood to the floor, thus creating a ‘floating’ floor.

Locking floors are great for spaces requiring a fast setup and easy maintenance. When looked after properly, these floors can last between 10-20 years, and they are equally as easy to replace when the time comes to renew them.
