WOODWORKS BY TED TODD FLOORING
Elm flooring is one of the rarest types of wood flooring around. As a result, our Mayer elm floors can only be crafted using genuine reclaimed, centuries-old, antique European elm.
This durable floor is water resistant, good with pets, suitable for high traffic areas and other everyday challenges.
What is Elm Wood Flooring?
Elm wood flooring is exceedingly rich in character, texture and is extremely hard to get your hands on.
In the 1970’s much of the Elm population was devastated by Dutch Elm Disease and because of this, Elm today can only be acquired from private residences, old barns and public spaces.
Years of seasoning in old residencies and barns has granted elm a natural gift in the form of precious deep grain movement. These rare creations make each plank and shape entirely unique to the next, meaning you’ll never find two the same, so your project will be packed with personality.
Benefits of Elm Wood flooring
Hundreds of years ago, elm’s resistance to burn made it a popular choice for interiors, with the dual purpose of being fire retardant and a decorative feature.
Nowadays, the value is leans much more to the latter, with the natural beauty of an elm wood floor being its primary benefit. These are patterns you won’t see anywhere else, and certainly not in manmade alternatives.
From a functionality point of view, elm is a seasoned veteran, having a hardness that is exceedingly durable. These floors have been backed up by a 20mm thick construction, assuring that these elm engineered flooring options will last a lifetime.
Elm Wood Flooring Installation
These floors should only ever be installed by a professional fitter, with proper preparations and methods making all the difference.
Once installed, use the appropriate Care Floor System to ensure that the timber retains its individual look throughout the years.
