Sample matching

WFA is able to sample match almost anything that is requested.

The process of achieving a colour match takes up to 10 working days. We use the same extensive weighted method of application as the machines on the finishing line. This ensures precise and consistent application of the oils, stains and textures required.

Once the desired texture, colour and finish is agreed we will produce a control hand sample for client approval. On confirmation that this is correct the next course of action is to agree from the extensive range of suitable options in design, sizes and grade... The options really are endless.

NOTE: To achieve our smoked and fumed finishes the timber is smoked. Although this is a controlled process there will be variation in colour tones as they are dictated by a reaction with the natural tannins within the Oak. This process enhances the natural variation tones in the wood to create a beautiful, varied appearance. Smoked floors will naturally lighten and mellow with time. For a more consistent colour we recommend a stained or bespoke oil option is chosen and not a smoked finish.
