Timber Flooring Final Finishes Do Matter

11th, April 2016

Where large scale investments are made in premium value commercial, retail or residential developments it normal for these to be marketed in a way that identifies high specification. Luxurious, exclusive, lifestyle and astonishing are common terms used by property specialists to market high value developments.

It is therefore essential that the spotlight is clearly focused on product quality and standard of installation when procuring essential final finish items that have a lasting impact on prospective purchasers. Flooring is certainly one of a number of essential finishes that will influence purchase decisions and timber finishes are commonly specified in high end developments.

Buyer Beware: Whilst contractor selection within the construction industry is very much ‘price’ focused when procuring final finishes within high end developments it is strongly recommended that a balanced view of product quality, contractor’s track record and attention to detail is taken into account. Timber flooring is and high value investment, if things go wrong it is extremely disruptive and very expensive to replace or correct mistakes once buildings are occupied.
