At Perth Timber Floors we often jokingly refer to the engineered systems as the cake mix of the timber floor world This is because like cake mix the messy, dusty, sometimes smelly process of sanding and polishing has been done in the factory so the wide panel real timber pre-finished floorboards, are boxed and ready to deliver to site and install. The real timber top layer (3-6mm lamella) is bonded to cross laminated base material stability. It is this unique engineered structure that allows the engineered floors to be installed without being adhered or fixed to the subfloor but rather boards are adhered to each other and “float” over an underlay. The engineered floors are perfect for installation in multi-level dwellings where the Body Corporate Regulations and Building Codes require approved acoustic underlay data and lift only access.
- Engineered floors are fast to install and are trafficable on the same day.
- Engineered flooring doesn’t have to be adhered to subfloor.
- Engineered floor systems are ideal for installing over existing ceramic or vinyl tiles.
- Engineered floors can be installed in dwellings which are still occupied.

Strip Flooring and Parquetry
We specialise in Direct Fixed installation, the most common method for installing floors over concrete slabs throughout Western Australia.
Timber clad concrete or MDF staircases are becoming increasingly more popular as more double storey houses and units are built or carpets are replaced as part of a home renovation.
Beading and Skirting Boards
All timber floors must have an adequate expansion gap when installed as specified by the Building Codes. This is to allow space for the timber to expand and contract with seasonal changes.

Plank on Ply
This method is most often used to build height to match marble and granite entry tiles or to patch and repair a variety of subfloor surfaces during renovations. 12mm plywood sheets are adhered and nailed or anchored to the concrete or other subfloors.
Repairs, Renovations and Remodeling
Remodeling your kitchen is the best way to update your home. In most cases, this means changing the cabinet layout or footprint, which ultimately means changing your entire floor.
