Engineered flooring from Sutton Timber made from sustainable UK hardwood

Sutton Timber specialise in sourcing standing trees of English and European Hardwoods.

From oak to elm and ash to cherry our wood is sourced from privately owned woodlands and government forests across the UK and Europe.  

Sutton Timber hold a comprehensive stock of kiln dried and air dried wood including engineered hardwood floorboards that will not bend, warp or discolour and can even be used with underfloor heating systems.

Ben Sutton explains the manufacturing process: “From our own English stock we produce a 27mm blank and cut it into three sheets of 5.5 mm veneer. These are then glued to the best quality 12 or 15mm exterior birch ply to produce a floorboard that looks identical to a solid wooden board, but has had all the tension removed, providing an excellent level of stability and reliability.”

Ben Sutton tips and advice on working with hardwoods

Working with Underfloor Heating

In the past it could often be difficult to choose between engineered or solid hardwood boards.

Whilst hardwood floors create a stunning look in any room with a rustic, natural feel and beautiful lustre, traditionally customers have been advised to not use solid hardwood boards in conjunction with underfloor heating.

Now however you can combine the best of both worlds with our range of engineered hardwood floorboards that will not bend, warp or discolour when used with these modern heating systems.

UK grown wood

The Sutton Timber range of UK grown wood includes:

  • English Oak that can be supplied with a clean, straight grain, free from imperfections or as a character or rustic grade with knots and swirling grain patterns.
  • Cherry and Scottish Elm woods that add a sense of warmth and well-being to any room.
  • Ash – there is a surplus of engineered hardwood boards made from native Ash trees due to the recent felling of diseased trees.

Sutton Timber offer a range of colours to harmonise with home interiors and the outside environment.
