Listone Floors

We combine the traditional beauty of wood with modern finishing methods of engineered floors’ production, ensuring their durability and resistance and allowing us to obtain a rich variety of products with the best use of raw material. Additionally, we employ advanced chemical processing and pigmentation techniques, enabling us to offer a wide range of products.

Why choose real wood?

Wood is a material made by nature according to the rules of nature.

Compared to many other raw materials – such as stone, metal or fossil fuel deposits – wood is a potentially inexhaustible resource because it grows entirely powered by the sun's rays and rain's nutrients. Wood has a slow life cycle, but it is completely ecological and continuously renewable if the forest in which it grows is carefully managed.

Trees can absorb higher levels of carbon dioxide and, more importantly, retain it, much more efficiently than untreated wood. A forest cultivated according to the rules of good management, as it grows, not only provides a constant supply of wood – a truly unique material as versatile as it is beautiful – but also plays a vital role in preserving the quality of the air we breathe. It regulates the hydrogeological balance of the soil and protects the landscape.

Wood managed in this way creates no environmental damage.

Which type of flooring to choose?

There are so many different types of hardwood flooring on the market today – different dimensions, wood types, and finishes – that it can be overwhelming. It is vital not to be guided solely by aesthetic criteria. Wooden flooring is naturally sought after for its beauty and the sense of well-being it conveys. 

Never forget, however, that it is an essential technical component in your home and factors such as dimensional stability, total available thickness, and thermal resistance play a significant role. That's why you should make a serious distinction between traditional hardwood flooring and engineered hardwood flooring.

Solid Wood Flooring

Each board of solid wood flooring is nothing more than a strip of solid wood, devoid of any treatment that could enhance its stability.

What is an advantage in an antique piece of furniture, for example, is a technological limitation for wooden floors, where wood is synonymous with tension and movement. This makes the solid wooden flooring sensitive to changes in humidity and therefore subject to warping. And as the size of the plank increases, this reaction tends to become more pronounced.

The risk ranges from cracks to detachment in more extreme cases. casos mais extremos. 

Engineered Wood Flooring

The engineered wood flooring is also 100% wood. It is, however, a more complex product in terms of construction, with each component being specially designed to perform a specific function. 

We leave the premium wood, the most attractive part of the piece, exposed as the top layer. The layer below, marine plywood, is there to provide stability and balance to the floor. 

Engineered flooring is not only better in terms of dimensional stability and resistance to humidity variations, but also allows for larger planks of equal thickness. This benefits both the appearance and technical performance of the floor.
