The client asked us to re-level the floor in their house as it was sloping downwards around 60mm across a 3m area. You could literally put a ball at the top of the slope and it would race down towards the far corner. We also had to put some new joists in and replace the particle board with rimu.

Cooper Street required the removal of particle board in the lounge, dining and kitchen area.

We installed nogs throughout the area then laid the new timber.

Tawa flooring stained an earth colour

This property was completely renovated including extending the Tawa floor, installing pine stairs and oak downstairs in the entrance way. Looking at the picture the darker stained area upstairs is tawa and the lighter shade is oak. The reason for the colour difference is due to the older softer tawa absorbing more stain than the oak which is a fairly hard timber.
