Sutton Timber was a really fortunate find after starting an online search for "light coloured engineering wood flooring" (I knew I didn't want oak!). Having researched (too!) extensively the "commonly stocked" engineering woods (mostly being oak!), when the sample of ash flooring arrived from Sutton Timber, it immediately exceeded the quality of the other engineering woods, was in the same price bracket, and what was more, it was exactly what I was looking for. Ben's passion for his product was obvious throughout and he was with me from order through to delivery!! My floor is better than I thought it would be, and I take delight seeing a different part of the ash tree every day! Thank you Ben for producing such beautiful wood!

used Sutton Timber's first grade solid English oak in my three reception rooms, two cupboards, hall, stairs, landing and bedroom. My floor fitter said it was the best oak in England and it is hard to believe anything else. The wood is simply beautiful – a calm, clear, grain with just the right amount of variation and movement in it. I never get tired of looking at it and it draws admiring compliments as soon as visitors get through the door. Ben is amazingly knowledgeable about wood and finishes and is fastidious when selecting each plank. He was really helpful at every step of the process, from suggesting choices of timber to organising delivery and advising on acclimatising and preparing the wood. His love of timber is evident and his passion for it is apparent in the quality of the wood that he supplies. I have no hesitation in recommending Sutton Timber, as the quality of their products and service is second to none.
