With customer satisfaction as our focus, our company assures the highest level of workmanship and on-going service. We take great pride in the quality of our materials, while fitting within your budget. A Swinard wooden floor is crafted to last for generations.

Solid Wooden Floors

An individualised floor – choose from a wide variety of timber species and board widths, which can be left natural or stained before your personal choice of coating, either waterborne polyurethane or hardwax oil, is applied on site.

Engineered Wooden Floors

With a 4mm thick hardwood layer of your timber choice, these 100% wood boards are constructed with multi-layers of ply beneath and coated with polyurethane or oil in the factory. They click together and come in a wide range of timber species, colours, and coatings.

Laminate Flooring

A good laminate floor can be hard to tell apart from the real thing. Laminate flooring is a cost-effective choice for those who want the look and feel of real timber but want a durable floor at a fraction of the price.

Sanding, Coating and Finishing

We offer a full range of sanding, staining, coating and finishing options for both new and existing timber floors. Restoring and re-coating an old floor can bring it back to life.

Swinard Wooden Floors are Environmentally Aware

The installation of sustainably sourced hardwood flooring was an important belief held by our founder, Geoff Swinard, and we have continued with this principle.


We aim to obtain all our timber from ecologically managed forests and our preferred suppliers have sustainability certification. For timbers to be sustainable a tree must be planted for every one that is harvested and the forest must maintain its ecological integrity.
