Quality and origin of oakwood
Uipkes sets high standards for the quality of its workforce and wood products. We only invest in products that are produced in an ecologically sound way and of great quality. This means we use wood that comes from certified sustainably managed forests, mainly in Europe.
Sustainable forest management means it is cut selectively: only those trees are cut which are really useful. For this, a new tree is planted on the site or seedlings are given the opportunity to take the place of the felled trees.
The better the quality and management of the forest, the better the quality of the oak wood from which the boards are produced. Lots of oak on the Dutch market comes from low-wage countries such as China, where less strict rules are maintained concerning the management of forests and the quality of the oak wood.
Uipkes chooses the best quality European wood available. A beautiful oak floor from Uipkes will last a lifetime! An oak floor is therefore a sustainable investment in your home and contributes greatly to a warm and pleasant living experience.
All wood floor that we supply are produced in a traditional planing mill in the Netherlands. We buy sustainably produced raw oak wood, already sawn and dried, from regular suppliers in the Netherlands and Belgium. Before we start the woodwork, we check whether the supplied wood has the right quality to be processed into high floorboards. If we are satisfied with the quality, we start the woodworking procedure in which boards are cut to size and colored. For more background information, see:

French oak flooring
French oak is a calm type of wood characterised by the flamed pattern in its boards, sometimes accompanied by small knots, also named 'cat paws'. French oak flooring is yellow in colour, bringing a warm glow into your home.
Classic French oak flooring
Classic French oak is characterized by its yellow brown cognac color. The classic form of French oak is the busiest form of French oak. This means that there are large knots and maybe also some areas of the heart of the tree that are visible in the floorboards. This gives the floor an 'old' and exuberant character. Classic French oak is widely used in older homes and farms.
Rustic French oak flooring
Rustic French oak floors treated with natural oils gives the home a contemporary, yet also a neutral character. This oak flooring we can be supplied in various colors, including smoked, smoked white or natural or black. So you can always choose a color that best suits the decor and feel of your living environment.
Red American Oak Flooring
Red American oak has a characteristic salmon shade. Due to its unique flamed markings, this type of wood is very popular in the United States and is frequently used in flooring and furniture.
White American Oak Flooring
American oak cannot be coloured as easily as French oak. White American oak is usually slightly more expensive compared to French oak, which is why most Dutch suppliers do not offer flooring made out of this wood.
