Andrew's son Douglas Borthwick followed in his father's footsteps and, from the age of 15, has spent over 50 years transforming the business to what it is today.
Continuing with the family tradition, Doug's sons Scott and Clinton are continuing the craft into the 21st century, delivering quality and perfection with each and every timber floor.
The Borthwick Floors™ family business is a very well known and largely respected name throughout the construction industry. Their techniques, along with the quality of workmanship they have perfected, have earned them the reputation of being "The wood flooring family, with sawdust flowing through their veins".

They have developed advanced methods of high quality direct staining for timber floors, a technique which has been crafted and tested since 1995, with continuing success. Borthwick Floors™ strives to keep ahead of the field and be constantly innovative in their methods of installation.
