Woodpecker’s Wood Flooring Types
With a family heritage in the timber industry that goes back three generations, Woodpecker are a company whose focus stems from creating traditional and natural wood flooring. Through a deep understanding of different tree species and with years of experience crafting high quality wooden floorboards, Woodpecker have continued to grow their flooring options to produce solid wood, engineered wood, bamboo and laminate floorboards.
Woodpecker are also proud to have all their wood approved by the Forest Stewardship Council and Program for the Endorsement of Forests, as both certifications guarantee the wood used by Woodpecker is ethically and responsibly sourced.
Solid or Engineered Wood Flooring?
So, you want the look and feel of natural wood flooring but you’re not sure what the difference is between solid wood flooring and engineered wood flooring?
Woodpecker’s solid wood flooring is as close to nature as you’re going to get from inside your home. Cut and made from sustainably sourced hardwoods, Woodpecker’s solid wood flooring provides that classic feeling of warmth that natural wood sustains. By using a range of different finishes, the wood’s natural texture is preserved, enhancing the unique grains and knots in every piece.
While engineered wood flooring holds that same natural wood finish and feel, it follows a different construction process. Woodpecker’s engineered flooring is formed out of three separate layers to add extra stability to every piece. The top layer is made from the same cut hardwood as the solid wood flooring, giving that natural wood appearance and texture. While the second and third layers are made from softwood, fibreboard or plywood to add extra stability and versatility to your selected flooring.

Woodpecker’s Bamboo Flooring
Bamboo flooring is an extremely sustainable way to achieve the appearance of wooden floorboards. At Woodpecker, they use two different techniques to turn their harvested bamboo into boards. They either laminate strips of bamboo together to form solid pieces or bind and compress the bamboo fibres together through a process called strand weaving. Both techniques create strong and durable flooring that can be produced in a range of colours and styles.
Woodpecker’s Laminate Flooring
With two collections of laminate flooring available, Woodpecker have a selection of durable and scratch resistant laminate floorboards for you to choose from. Simulating the appearance of solid wood flooring, laminate flooring offers a more affordable option to achieving that wooden floor finish. Whether you want a natural and rustic style or an overall whitewashed tone, Woodpecker stocks a variety of laminate flooring options.
