Finish

Many of our solid boards comes in main finishes;  Matt Lacquered and Oil. The boards are also available in an unfinished state. Oil Finish is designed to sip through the wood natural which will provide a natural matt appearance. As a result, oil makes wood look richer and more translucent without adding a film on the surface.

During the oiling process, the wood is coated in drying oil which soaks into the surface of the wood to act as a protector against spills and dirt and everyday wear and tear. Another version of the Oil is the UV Oils which have been exposed to high capacity UV lights which cure the oil quickly.

Another finish we provide at Giant Floors for our solid wood boards are the lacquered finishes. The finishes provides a glossy, smooth appearance and feels to the solid wood. To achieve this finish a wood floor is usually coated numerous times with a high-quality lacquer. A lot of woods are finished with a matt lacquer, this gives a more subdued shine to the floor. The difference with Oil Finish is that oil sinks into the surface of the wood, Lacquer sits on top of the wood adding more protection.
