I love timber floorings, however I am worried about scratches more. Should I avoid timber floorings?

Timber is a sensitive material especially when subjected to the elements. In an indoor environment however, wear and tear is unavoidable but can be minimized based on the selection of hardwood used. Bamboo is a great solution as it is a resilient material and easier to maintain. If the unfortunate event does occur, it can be easily repaired using methods specified by your supplier. It is important to tell the supplier your concerns in order for them to make an appropriate recommendation.

In our existing 2 storey family home we find the Timber flooring too noisy, if our children run around upstairs. How can we reduce floor noises without going to solid concrete flooring?

Currently Hebel offers a great solution where by replacing the old plywood lining of your home with the new Hebel 75mm Power floor system which will:

  • Eliminates squeaking associated with traditional particle board or plywood lining used in traditional building methods.
  • Gives your floor a solid feel.
  • Superior thermal performance.
