Choosing a floor for your home is a project in itself. The timber species, the grain and pattern, the board dimensions and the long term performance must all be carefully considered.

So you can match your flooring to your interior and furnishings you need a wide choice of floor boards to choose from. John Boddy offer top quality floor boards carefully cut, graded and machined. You can select from a wide range of hardwoods at their Boroughbridge site.

Buy oak flooring in American White Oak to European Heavy Character Oak. A huge colour palette to choose from and distinctive choices of natural grains. Start from pale yellow-brown biscuit with a pinkish tint and characteristic silver grain to light tan/biscuit or darker with or clusters of ‘pips’ like cats paws, on to dark biscuit including all manner of character and knots - that’s just the oak range!

Or you could try Walnut flooring with its sumptuous dark chocolate colour that blends well with many different styles and finishes. Maple flooring has a beautiful creamy white tone with a reddish tinge and is perfect for dancing on.

Still not what you want? Then look at ash, beech, cherry, Scandinavian redwood and the magnificently exotic wenge, a very dark timber with a distinctive grain – the choice goes on!

All floor boards are supplied in whatever type of finished edge you choose - be it plain, bevel, arris, or planed tongue and grooved (which can be with or without a secret nail pattern). All boards are end matched, giving a sleek and seamless finish.

If you are planning to have under floor heating you should consider engineered flooring. Needless to say John Boddy can provide this as well. This flooring is supplied with a birch plywood core for stability and a 5mm character oak veneer, (overall thickness 21mm). The depth of veneer provides the look of solid hardwood and is very durable. Select from European character oak and prime oak with either an oil finish (3 coats UV cured) or lacquered (6 coats UV cured). A UV finish helps stop colour fading. You also have the choice of FSC certified flooring in European character oak unfinished. Available in two thicknesses either 5.5mm veneer, (overall thickness 21mm) or 4.5mm veneer, (overall thickness 16mm).
