Bespoke Joinery & Stair Parts
We look at every part of a project to ensure we can offer our clients the best package on the market. The wood flooring is the main aspect but just as important is being able to offer our clients a wide range of matching thresholds and accessories. We have an in-house joinery team, they specialise in bespoke stair parts (https://elesco.co.uk/joinery/). Many companies on the market will offer separate treads and nosing’s, the issue with this design is the two separate parts may not be the same shade and you will see a distinct line where the two parts meet, this look can ruin an entire project. What our joinery team do is to create a bespoke bonded tread and nosing, this way there is no visible line and you have the appearance of a solid step but made from engineered oak, the finish would match the flooring.
We offer a few options for the nosing’s, a traditional bull nosing, a more modern square nosing or a mix between both. The joinery team can also create kites, side returns and all aspects of your stair case, so no matter the design we can provide a market leading quality product.
We also offer a wide range of thresholds, trims and accessories, all which match your flooring perfectly, these allow you to have the required expansion gap without an unsightly mis-matched trim. These trims can cover the gaps up to external and internal door, around fireplaces, pretty much anywhere that will not be covered by a skirting board. These are normally made from oak, but we can offer a wide range of metal thresholds and trims if you would prefer a metal finish over oak.
Accessories & Oil care
We can provide installation & oil care items for your wooden floors, we stock a range of high quality adhesives to stick the flooring down or underlay and PVA to float the wood flooring. See our installation guides (https://elesco.co.uk/installation/) for further information.
The oil care is a very important part of looking after your wood flooring purchased from Elesco, we recommend using Saicos wash care for routine cleaning and Saicos Wax care for annual maintenance oiling. Please see here (https://elesco.co.uk/oilcare/) for our full maintenance guides covering every detail of the process. If you need any help or advice about oil care please don’t hesitate to phone the office.
FeathEffect is a range of oak flooring developed by Elesco, we developed this range to highlight the natural beauty of wood flooring. The range was designed to be used with rustic flooring, prime flooring is becoming harder to source with high demand over the last few years. Rustic flooring has not been as popular. The driver behind the company developing this range was to make more readily available rustic flooring beautiful and the colours we have made show this. We used a rustic FeathEffect flooring at the Surface Design Show 2022 and it looked beautiful and everyone was impressed with the oak flooring.
What is Engineered Wood Flooring.
Engineered oak floors are constructed from multiple layers of wood, the top layer or lamella is usually oak. The core of the board is made from plywood, this method of layering timber adds stability and strength.
Wood is a natural product and is hygroscopic – which means the floor absorbs and losses moisture. If the humidity changes the wood floor can swell or shrink as the floor’s moisture content changes. Changing humidity can be caused by seasons changes or the use of air conditioning or heating systems. Engineered flooring outperforms its solid counterpart in relation to humidity changes and engineered flooring can be used over underfloor heating. Due to the increased stability of an engineered floor, longer and wider planks can be produced.
