Do you want them to fit it as well? I know someone who recently got a wooden floor from that Tile Depot on Hatfield Rd (St Albans) but I think they fitted it themselves. They said that place had the best prices though... don't know if they offer a fitting service
on the contrary, i have hard wax oil and tis lovely darlink. [apologies, am on the mateus]
British Hardwoods, is who we sourced our oak from. fitted it ourselves though. v nice it is too. and this lot, timber neutral do gorgeous woods, and when we visited them they said they had really wide plank solid oak at an even better price. grrr. we did get the mango wood for our bathroom from them, and its lovely.
varnished, or laquered, is great inasmuch as the laquer is harder wearing. BUT, when it does go, you have to strip the whole lot to re-varnish. with waxoil, you can do spot repairs without having to strip the whole floor. AND you can still feel the grain of the wood, whereas a coated in varnish/laquer floor feels like it might as well be a veneer. to me.
Amphibimum - MM was asking specifically what she could use a Scooba on. My answer is correct. It's got nothing to do with taste - we also have and love hard wax oil, but we can't use the Scooba to clean it.
