Oak Floorboard and Claddings tend to shrink, twist & cup when moved into the warmer drier environment of a house, so leave in the room to acclimatise in a stack, to stop the twisting and cupping, and shuffle the boards occasionally so that they dry out slowly and evenly, to help minimise any movement/twisting and surface checking/splitting that occurs naturally with changes in moisture content;
- SIZES MEASURED AS AT - 13/08/2012 -
Sizes are the usual timber NOMINAL size that the 25x150mm Planed Floorboard is machined from, with a finished size that is generally obtained;
Planed 6x1 Oak Floorboard sizes are generally ± 1mm on thickness / ± 2mm on width with one splitter saw edge & ± 6mm cross-cutting tolerance;
Be aware: For a multitude of reasons, size and profile of timber may vary from batch to batch, so it is best to purchase all you need for a job in one go, rather than buying more at a later date.
Various defects, surface checking, splits and knots occur naturally in timber, and are allowed in the grading of the timber;
They are not detrimental to the use of the Oak Floorboard.
If it is important, then you need to check sizes and profiles before ordering, and commencing work.
We cannot be held responsible for any variations in timber sizes, pattern, colour or grain.
