We pride ourselves on the service we offer and being a family company, working on the principles of high quality products, good service and competitive pricing.
Martyn Ryder established the company after extensive research into the flooring market and in particular wood flooring. In general the quality of cheap imports and lack of home grown products meant there was an opportunity to develop high quality hardwood flooring jointly with interior designers and architects.
The research started back in the 1980s when Martyn was in the development business, refurbishing grade I and Grade II listed properties and realised there was no wood flooring competitively priced that would meet what was needed to ensure the integrity of the conversion was in keeping with the era.
It took three years to complete the research and development of the first 10 lines of solid wood and engineered floors, which then became the top quality engineered hardwood flooring you now see in our range. There is a limitless range of finishes and colours available using either our prefinished floors or unfinished boards.
Since then we have exported to more than 25 countries and continents around the world including Europe, the Middle East, Australia, Malta, Azerbaijan, Columbia and the USA.
A large proportion of our wood floors have been designed and manufactured to exacting specifications created by architects and interior designers. We only use the latest, state-of-the-art machines, adhesives and finishes and are always striving to continually develop our products and increase the range of wood flooring options.
The expert team at the Solid Wood Flooring Company have more experience than any other company and this can be seen by the amount of technical advice on the web site. We ensure all our staff are fully trained and endeavour to offer the best, most friendly and professional service in such a diverse industry.
This is why it is our philosophy not to have a web site where you can buy online. The purchase of a wood floor is a high ticket item and corners should not be cut for the sake of a few pounds. Neither should people go into such a purchase, blind to the consequences of buying a wood floor that has not been properly manufactured, and then fitted badly. We have horrendous stories of people filling their basket on a web site only to find that the floors lifts, buckles and twists just a few weeks after being fitted all for the sake of a few pounds.
You can call our office number and help line – 01666 504015 - any time and we always welcome feedback and contributions to the web site and also our product lines. We realise we do not have exclusivity on new ideas but we do pride ourselves on our commitment to help the environment by providing sustainable products for our homes, hotels, museums and offices. Only pure wool carpets are sustainable, other types of carpet, vinyl etc., use fossil fuels and we know what they do to our planet.
