Wooden Floors have been around for centuries

Wood flooring has been used for centuries. In the Middle Ages, wooden floors were laid in castles, monasteries and mansions. Wood is easy to work with, can be recycled and is biodegradable. Wood is also a renewable raw material in contrast to other raw materials such as petroleum, stone or ore that form the basis of other types of floors such as laminate, PVC or flagstones.

Uipkes has many years of experience in delivering and installing custom wooden floors for many private individuals, architects and companies in The Netherlands and abroad. Sustainability, craftsmanship, an eye for detail and our love for wood and design are central to the way we operate. All our oak floors are made from wood that comes from sustainably managed forests and we also use environmentally friendly natural products such as linseed oil in the finishing of our wooden floors.

At Uipkes, traditional working never went away. Our experienced flooring installers create your wooden floor in the installation pattern, color and wood type the way you want it. They also have extensive experience in placing engineered wood flooring on underfloor heating. Our wooden floors can be used everywhere, including in the kitchen or bathroom.

A wooden floor can be installed in various ways, depending on the current floor of your home or office.

In addition, other factors can play an important role in the installation of a wooden floor. For example, if you live in an apartment, noise reduction is important. In that case, our advice is to install a 'floating' floor. In short: every situation requires tailor-made advice.

JANKA WOOD HARDNESS

Hardness is an important feature for wood species. One type of wood is harder than the other. The harder the wood the more durable the floor. The hardness of  wood is measured in Janka, also known as the "Janka Hardness" system (N). This means the force measured in kg required to push a smooth steel ball with a diameter of 11,824 mm to the middle of the wood (the surface of the half steel ball is exactly 100 mm²).

The appearance of wood

In general, there are three principal surfaces or sawing methods of wood: the crosscut surface, the radial surface and the tangential surface. The crosscut surface is any surface that is perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the trunk. The radial surface is any vertical surface passing through the longitudinal axis of the tree and through the center of the trunk. It is also called quarter sawn wood. The tangential surface is any surface that does not pass through the longitudinal axis of the tree, but runs parallel to it. When sawing is performed in tangential direction, we speak of flat cut wood.

Movement of Wood

Wood is a versatile material, with infinite application possibilities. By nature it is beautiful, characteristic and warm. In addition, it is strong, durable and easy to handle. Wood is influenced by the soil, the climate and the structure and structure of the tree from which wood is derived. These influences make wood so diverse. When applying wood, consideration should be given to characteristics such as: wood moisture content, shrink and swell, volume and heat characteristics.
