We are a small team of dedicated professionals with a number of years experience and a passion for making beautiful floors.
Tim and Charlotte Faulkner started Homeoak Trading in 2005, initially working from their showroom at Exeter Racecourse. In the early days Charlotte did all the floor finishing work before their daughter Storm joined the business to help out. Still a family business they have now supplied thousands of floors across the West Country and beyond and Tim has unrivalled experience in the wood flooring industry after nearly 20 years of running Homeoak.
Gary Cutland became Homeoak’s “go to” fitter very soon after the business was founded. Although Gary works for himself (Gary Cutland Ltd) he has been involved in the fitting of nearly all Homeoak’s floors in a partnership of over 15 years. Gary is a skilled and time served carpenter and is often found fitting customers kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, staircases, storage solutions etc. much of the time using Homeoak supplied oak. Gary is ably assisted by Rob Lowry who has now been on the team for a couple of years and together they can do everything from fitting engineered oak over under floor heating, to laying an intricate parquet floor, cladding or building a staircase in oak to building a new extension!
Lauren Hutchings is our main floor finisher, either on site for customers, or pre-finishing oak boards here in our workshop. She is expert at applying Treatex Hard Wax Oil finishes, which we tend to use most often, as well as Morrell’s woodstains and Osmo products. She also does floor preparation and deliveries – keeping Gary and Robbie topped up wherever they are working around the area.
