FINISHING ON A HIGH NOTE

With 12 different finishes available across the Ted Todd and Woodworks portfolio, we have a floor finish that’s right for every project.

From lacquer or oil based, matt to satin sheen, our finishes help protect your hardwood floor from damage.

Whilst many of our floors are created complete with a finish to save you time and effort later, we have many unfinished options which you may decide to finish on site in line with your specifications.

 

There are important aesthetic outcomes to consider however.

Almost all our finishes will change the tone of our floors in some way, and understanding the colour change when picking your most appropriate finish is very important.

Hardwax Oil, Natural Oil and Oil Wood Traffic will give the floor a much darker look, whereas water-based finishes such as our Naked Skin Lacquer and Satin Lacquer give a more medium-to-dark tone.

DIFFERENT FINISHES

MATT LACQUER

Transparent, soft-feel lacquer that maintains the original ‘unfinished’ look of natural wood. Dried and sanded between a minimum of 6 coats for the maximum possible protection. For cleaning lacquer-based finishes use Care System 1, and for white toned floors with a lacquered finish, we recommend using Care System 3.

HARDENED OIL

Hardened oil is an oil-based finish. It has a natural look with a subtle sheen. The outer layer is UV hardened to give added wear and water resistance making it easy to maintain. For cleaning UV finished floors use Care System 1, and for white toned floors with an UV finish, we recommend using Care System 3.

PEARL LACQUER

This specialist finish creates an iridescent reflection and provides the durability you would expect from a multi coat lacquer. For cleaning lacquer-based finishes use Care System 1, and for white toned floors with a lacquered finish, we recommend using Care System 3.

OIL WOOD TRAFFIC

This finish gives the wooden floor a warm and soft appearance, typical of natural oil-based finishes. It is very resistant to wear and tear and liquids due to natural hardening. For cleaning oil-based finishes use Care System 2, and for white toned floors with an oil-based finish, we recommend using Care System 4.

HAND PAINTED

A hand painted finish, completed in our Cheshire workshops, which varies depending on the floor or cladding. For cleaning hand painted finishes use Care System 1, and for white toned floors with a lacquered finish, we recommend using Care System 3.

NAKED SKIN LACQUER

Transparent, soft-feel lacquer that maintains the original ‘unfinished’ look of natural wood. Dried and sanded between a minimum of 6 coats for the maximum possible protection. For cleaning lacquer-based finishes use Care System 1, and for white toned floors with a lacquered finish, we recommend using Care System 3.

RESTORATION OIL

An organic, oiled based finish made of a mixture nut derived oils and beeswax. Penetrates deep into the pores of the wood to restrict dirt and debris on the surface. Transparent with no visible finish on the floor. For cleaning oil-based finishes use Care System 2, and for white toned floors with an oil-based finish, we recommend using Care System 4.

NATURAL OIL

An organic, oiled based finish. Penetrates deep into the pores of the wood to restrict dirt and debris on the surface. Transparent with no visible finish on the floor. Adds warmth to the floor and is easy to re-apply and deep clean. For cleaning oil-based finishes use Care System 2, and for white toned floors with an oil-based finish, we recommend using Care System 4.

BURNISHED HARDWAX OIL

A durable, natural finish that combines oils to deeply penetrate into the wood’s pores. Slowly build up for maximum protection. Reflects light well and emphasises grain/undulations across the floor. Also available in matt and super matt. For cleaning oil-based finishes use Care System 2, and for white toned floors with an oil-based finish, we recommend using Care System 4.

ORIGINAL POLISHED PATINA

Transparent, soft An authentic way of finishing our antique and reclaimed floors. We polish slowly by hand to protect the wood and supply a lustrous look.

UNFINISHED

Supplied without any finish. Allowing you to select a finish to be applied once laid within your project. Please check the relevant Care System for you’re chosen finish to assure the correct protection.

OXIDATED OIL

Oxidated Oil is a finish that hardens the surface of the wood using oxygen. Through a chemical reaction, the oil element develops over time through exposure to air and creates an almost invisible, but very hard wearing matt layer of protection.
