About Caislean Oak Collection.
Wood is an integral part of our lives...
For thousands of years trees and wood have been an integral part of our life, our ecosystem and our environment. Trees provide us with oxygen for life. Trees give shelter, food, heat and comfort to us and to other species. Trees fill our environment and give it colour, texture and beauty.
Wood as a natural product is characterised by individual beauty and unique shades, tints, texture and shapes. It has an unparalleled arrangement of knots and grains. No two pieces are or will ever be the same, just as no two people are or will ever be the same. Like trees, we have our own individual character and story.
Why Caislean Oak?
We have taken the best of European Oak from managed forests and added it to high quality plywood. This allows us to use less hard wood but gives you a floor that will last just as long as a solid wood floor. This structure is also significantly more stable than its solid counterpart. It will be better able to withstand changes in temperature and humidity which might otherwise cause buckling, swelling and other distortions
Having taken the raw plank you have a choice. We can sand, brush, distress or artificially age your oak wood floor. We can then apply the selected finish and even work on one completely unique to you. After all the above we will then complete your floor with a high quality seal. Our unique Tung Oil Finish offers Low VOC, allows for spot repair and very high water repellent properties, and offers a protective surface against household stains. Depending on the seal used it is a simple process to refinish your floor. The collection is suitable for Domestic and Commercial use and is available in a variety of different plank sizes to help fulfil your needs.
