Typically costs more to install, as Solid Timber Flooring MUST be glued down

Some timbers difficult to install

Some can’t be used below grade

Less stable: higher chance of shrinkage and cupping than

Engineered Timber Flooring

Moisture sensitive: must be acclimatised to the environment in which the floor will be installed in, for at least three weeks prior to installation (very important that the moisture content of the flooring is similar to the internal pre existing timber - e.g. subfloor, framing, etc.)

Project takes longer due to sanding and coating (typically one coat per day, three coats minimum)

Creates dust and fumes

Nobody can be in the home/building whilst sanding and finishing is underway

No access to timber floor during coating stage

If damage occurs, often requires the entire area to be re-sanded and coated

Additional costs if the flooring is stained or bleached

More chance of imperfections in the timber, due to being machined directly from raw material
