The timeless look of wooden flooring
When Steve Heald started installing wooden floors 20 plus years ago out of the back of a van, he had no idea Just Hardwood Floors would morph into the business it is today.
Now staffed by 13 employees and run from their East Tamaki warehouse and showroom, Just Hardwood Floors is a fully-fledged operation which has been providing quality timber flooring to Auckland homes and businesses since 1997.
Along the way, the company has earned industry accolades as innovators in their field, especially for their quick adoption of other flooring types.
‘‘We’re a little bit unique in not just doing solid timber floors but also engineered, prefinished engineered and laminate flooring,’’ says Nicole Heald, Steve’s wife and business partner.
Engineered wood floors have been growing in popularity over the past few years and still provide the authentic, timeless look of a solid timber floor. They’re easy to clean and quick to install, and, as Nicole notes, a more sustainable and stable product than solid timber flooring – using plantation-farmed timber as opposed to slow-growing rainforest woods such as kwila.
‘‘You don’t need 19mm of solid wood for them; you only need 2 to 6mm on top.’’
With such benefits, it’s no wonder she’s observed a real shift in the flooring materials they use.
‘‘When Just Hardwood Floors started, it was NZ natives, Australian hardwoods... now they’ve become harder to source and more expensive,’’ she says.
‘‘It’s shifted to American Oak solid timber floors and European Oak engineered flooring over the last few years.’’
To meet with this demand, Just Hardwood Floors now import their own range of Premium Oak flooring, Euro-PRO, and have their own coating machine, oils and polyurethanes from Italy to precoat before going on site; resulting in a faster installation every time with no extra sanding required.
