Burmese Teak Timber Flooring

Burmese Teak Timber Flooring is the most common solid hardwood timber flooring in Singapore. Its slightly different from the traditional Burmese Teak parquet flooring because it uses bigger pieces of teak flooring. Of course, the price is different.

I did this for my cousin's apartment at Oleania Residences at River Valley Singapore using Burmese Teak Timber Flooring (75mm x 10mm ~ 1 to 3feet) random laying. The top coat is finished with a mixture of matt/glossy of polyurethane varnish.

Burmese teak as compared to Indonesian teak is darker in color, and contains more oil in its wood. The oil acts as a natural water repellent and prevents the teak from rotting and damage from termites. This makes it more expensive and elegance for flooring and furniture.
