From personally picking your flooring size and grading to a special parquet or plank pattern and unique finishing possibilities, we can help you create the custom-designed idyllic space of your dreams.
Although pre-finishing flooring is our forte, we are equally happy to support a traditional site-applied finish at the floor’s final destination.

Choose Your Grading
The first step in the selection process for your engineered wood floor is deciding which type of wood offers the best fit. Is it one of the qualities belonging to our fine range of freshly sawn hardwoods, or maybe a variety featured in our carefully reclaimed Antique Woods?
Next up is to define your preferred ‘grading’. Does a more uniform and clear growth structure fit the bill, or will a beautiful rustic growth character suit your project better? The choice is all yours. And if you are dazzled by choice, keep in mind that all our pure selections reflect nature at its best.
Part of your floor’s unique charisma is encrypted in your chosen pattern. For instance, random wide-sized planks tend to enhance the natural qualities of pure wood. Time-honored geometrical design motifs like Chevron and Herringbone still work wonders in more traditional environments. Or what about a floor crafted from one-piece planks, each spanning the entire width of the room? Whether traditional or contemporary, this floor is entirely your story - and we craft the wood to fit it.
The next step in your tailored journey: what kind of surface epitomizes the desired ambiance? To begin with, all our surface-processing techniques greatly enhance the natural character of the wood. Yet the selected type of surface treatment plays a noteworthy part in a floor’s final look and feel.
In general, a distressed wood flooring creates an authentic, aged appearance and oozes instant charm. Think of techniques such as hand-scraping or saw-kerf marks. There are plenty of options for modern looks, too. Brushing a Clear-Graded European Oak will bring out the beautiful grain texture of this particular wood. Obviously, we are happy to support you with our expertise, experience and advice in person. Meanwhile, get some initial inspiration by browsing through the options listed here.
Final Coats & Treatments
Now you have decided on the type of wood you want, the grade of wood, the pattern and the surface treatment, it’s time to choose a truly unique finish and colour. Our specially devised finishings program allows you to select from an endless range of possibilities to create a truly unique finish colour. Here at Forté Flooring we use only the highest quality environmentally friendly Oils and Hard-Waxes to protect the wood and create truly unique look.
After Sales Care
After we have completed your project, its important to understand the processes of taking care of the beautiful timber to ensure the full life of the product is met. It takes minimal effort to ensure the floor displays it's naturally beauty for up to 25 years.
