PROTECTING YOUR WOOD FLOOR
To ensure adequate protection for your wood floors against external influences like liquids and dirt, your floor is treated with oil which is available in many colors. We specialize in wide range of custom colors for your floors. The possibilities are infinite. Please take a sample photo with you so we can create the floor you like.
Wood flooring in all colors
Are you looking for a color for your floor that perfectly matches your interior? In our showrooms we can present you a wide variety of color samples. Outside this selection it is possible to mix colors as desired so that they match exactly with your preference.
Uipkes Wood Flooring uses Corcol oil. Some of the properties of this oil are:
- Corcol oil is made from 100% natural raw materials (linse and wood oil).
- It is easy to apply, even for the do-it-yourself.
- Provides good protection (water and stain resistant).
- Durable and easy to repair.
- Maintenance friendly.
'It is possible to mix colors as desired so that they match exactly with your preference.' For example, it is possible to 'color' an oak floor by means of a color pigment.
When lacquering the floor, three layers of lacquer are applied. Lacquer has the following properties:
- Water-based, so odorless and safe.
- Matte appearance under any 'viewing angle'.
- High wear resistance.
- Permanently elastic.
- Permanently crystal clear.
- Easy to process.
- Quick drying.
A lacquered floor must always be glued. With tropical hardwoods, a layer of lacquer gives a natural effect.
Every floor, regardless of the type of wood, must be finished. If there is no protective layer, the wood will become contaminated and affected by liquids. It is also practically impossible to clean untreated wood. It is possible to have your floor treated ready-to-use in the factory. \
If you decide to have the floor installed, it can also save time because the parquet installer no longer has to sand and oil on site. A floor oiled on site requires another 48 hours of drying time. We are happy to show you the differences in our showroom so that you can make an informed choice.
