We fitted this birch floor in Gloucestershire back in 2003. We recently (2014!) visited and took some photos – it still looks great! A few scratches from pushing wooden chairs back and forth but you can only see them if you get down on your hands and knees. If we gave this a light sanding and a coat of oil it would be better than new as it has aged beautifully. But the owners are happy with it just as it is.
