Use the calculator above to select unfinished or pre-finished, grade and a board width, then type in how many square metres you need to cover. Be sure to buy around 10% more than you actually need to account for wastage from cutting and shaping as the flooring is being laid.
Pre-finished and Unfinished Engineered European Oak Flooring
iWood offers an attractive range of pre-oiled, lacquered and coloured engineered oak flooring boards, as well as untreated boards for you to apply your own finish.
Our pre-finished engineered wood flooring boards are available with a range of protections and oils already applied, so the boards are ready to install. Our unfinished engineered European oak flooring boards are supplied without any treatment for you to apply your own oil, lacquer or stain.

The high durability also makes this flooring perfect for commercial applications with high traffic as well as domestic purposes.
Our pre-finished range is supplied in lengths of 1.9m, with a choice of 150mm or 190mm widths. The overall board thickness is 18mm, including a 4mm solid wear layer.
What Grades Are Available?
The grade of timber describes different classifications of appearance or sometimes physical properties.
In our engineered European oak flooring range we offer two grades, a prime grade and a rustic grade, with the difference being in appearance. Only the unfinished flooring is avilable as Prime, with our pre-treated range available in Rustic.
Prime grade oak flooring is virtually free from knots (if there are any, they will only be tiny), giving a clean, modern look causing little visual distraction, while rustic features more knots for a more traditional feel. Prime boards are also uniform in colour, while rustic can have slight variations which are negligible once they are treated anyway.
Prime Grade Flooring
Rustic Grade Flooring
Both prime and rustic grades have any knots pre-filled (so they won't catch on bare feet) and the whole board is sanded for a smooth finish. The untreated flooring is ready to take an oil, lacquer or stain of your choice. The pre-treated boards have various finishes and colours to choose from (see above).
What Sizes of Engineered Wood Flooring are Available?
Our unfinished engineered oak flooring boards are provided in lengths of 1.8, 2.1 and 2.4 metres. With unfinished, you will receive a random selection of lengths to make up your square meterage. Our pre-finished engineered European oak flooring is provided in lengths of 1.9m.
For unfinished boards, in prime grade, there are two widths available, 180mm and 200mm, and in rustic there are three, 160mm, 180mm and 200mm. For pre-finished rustic boards, there is a choice of 150mm or 190mm widths. The widths stated are the Face Widths, or the amount of board left showing once the tongue and groove have been fitted together.
Both unfinished and finished boards have a tongue and a groove down all four sides for ease of laying and strength and solidarity once installed. On unfinished, the two long edges feature a micro-bevel, giving a tiny v-groove where the boards meet, whereas the pre-finished boards are bevelled on all four sides.
The unfinished boards are all 19mm thick, featuring 15mm of high-specification manufactured birch plywood, with a 4mm solid oak top. The pre-finished boards are 18mm thick, with a 14mm manufactured backing and a 4mm solid oak wear layer.
Floorboard Size Effects
Narrow boards, when highly polished, are known to provide a formal, classy look, while wide boards give a more relaxed feel to a room. The width of the boards can also affect the perceived size of your room. Small rooms can be made to appear larger through the use of narrow boards, while narrow rooms can be made to appear wider by laying wide boards lengthways across the narrow width of the room.
Treating and Finishing Your Unfinished European Oak Flooring
If you opt for our unfinished boards, treating your flooring is essential to minimise potential stains from spills or animals.
iWood's engineered wood flooring is provided unfinished, that is without oil or lacquer, so you can apply your own choice of treatment for a variety of different looks. Numerous products are available that will colour the oak and bring out the grain pattern as well as options to give it extra physical protection.
Examples of Finishing Products
iWood doesn't sell finishes, but we've made a page about an online shop we've personally purchased products in the past from
While both the unfinished and pre-finished flooring is tongued and grooved for simple installation, we recommend your flooring be fitted by an experienced professional who can take your exact scenario into consideration.
We recommend that you install door mats in front of entrances to avoid grit and small stones being brought into your house that could scratch your floor.
We also recommend applying protective pads to the feet of all chairs and tables to avoid scratching your floor.
The lead time on our oak flooring is approximately 7 – 10 days.

How long do our deliveries take?
See the product description above for availability.
Costs of delivery
We base our delivery costs on where you're located. Make sure that you check out our
delivery costs page
Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.
Aside from delivery locations that are priced on application, your delivery will be provided with means of offloading from the truck. This may be by HIAB (lorry with a crane arm), or by supplied manpower. The method will be determined by the haulage company we use based on your location and available options at the time. Please note, both offload options will drop your order to the side of the lorry, they won't be able to carry it around the back of a property, for example.
For areas that are priced on application, by default, we will quote for delivery on a flat-bed lorry that you'll need to arrange to offload yourself. We can quote for offloading on request, but to these areas it's usually prohibitively expensive, and cheaper for you to hire a forklift, or arrange to have enough people on-site to offload.
How our orders for wood work
Once your secure order is placed, you should get an email that confirms exactly what you've ordered. Once we receive you're order from our sawmill and wood suppliers and we're ready to ship it out to you, we'll give you a call to confirm a delivery with you.
