Floorboards

Floorboards are available at Howarth in a wide range. Wooden floorboards, typically manufactured from redwood or whitewood, which are known for being durable and ideal for machining. They are PTG, meaning that they are planed with tongue and groove floorboard fittings. This means that the boards are planed to reach an attractive and smooth finish, and will ultimately interlock securely with each other. The biggest benefit of this is that the boards will remain strong once installed.

Redwood and whitewood timber floorboards are a type of softwood that is perfect for structural use, including studwork and joists, joining work (exterior and interior), as well as door linings and flooring. However, there are many differences between them:

  • Redwood floorboards are durable, meaning this is ideal for machining and easily absorbs treatment, whereas whitewood floorboards naturally resist treatment.
  • Whitewood is also very durable, making it ideal for construction purposes and works well with hand and machine tools, as well as can be glued and painted.

Floorboards are intended to be used as a base layer for any living area, including dining rooms and bedrooms, etc. It is referred to as a subfloor from time to time, and is normally covered with a final floor, which could be a carpet, tile, laminate floor, or engineered wood flooring. Nevertheless, if you are keen in achieving a rustic feel to your home, leaving wooden floorboards visible is a great way to achieve this.

Timber floorboards are a product of nature, commonly known as wood flooring and hardwood flooring in the market. Timber flooring is a product manufactured from timber to provide warm and easy feeling on the feet.

If you decide not to install any sort of flooring, such as carpet, over the top of your floorboards you could decide that paint or stain could be the way to enhance the personality and needs of the room. Paint is a great option if you want to add a burst of colour to your floorboards.

On the other hand, if you are keen to enhance the natural character of the wood grain, you could decide to choose a wood stain instead. Stains are available in gloss, as well as stain or matte finishes to suit your personal preference.
We also advise installing a good level of insulation beneath your floorboards to ensure that your home is kept warm during the winter months.

For further information and expert advice regarding what type of floorboards to choose from, please contact your friendly local Howarth branch.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to stop floorboards creaking?
To stop floorboards creaking, sprinkle lock lubricant or talcum powder into the joints between the floorboards.
