We’re the market leaders in sustainably sourced wood floors.

Since 1997, we have been FSC® compliant, and the great majority of our wood flooring and cladding options are FSC® or PEFC certified.

Most companies will charge extra for this certification, but we include this as a commitment to a better, healthier planet for years to come.

To make the most sustainable choice for your home or project, and for our planet, choose Ted Todd.


Our floors are constructed for demanding environments and our confidence in them is reflected in our guarantee. All our floors that are less than 20mm thick come with a 20 year guarantee, and all our floors 20mm+ thick come with a 25 year guarantee.

The practice has many names, but always involved the use of an open fire or controlled flame to char the wood before cooling, cleaning and treating it with natural oils to create a dark visual style and uniquely tactile feel.

Pairing centuries old technique with new craftsmanship in our Cheshire workshops, our team engineered these square, 20mm thick panels to assure they are up to the high standards we set ourselves. A thick wear layer makes Hornblende a floor that can deal with modern day challenges effectively and allows you to re-sand the antique Elm boards for years to come, keeping the floor looking intricate and beautiful as ever.
