    A client wants to refurbish her rental house with a wooden floor of about 4sqm and worktops for the kitchen. The base is dry concrete.

    Iroko? Would also need to be FSC.

    How about some reclaimed beech parqet? I've got about 5 metres if you're interested. Can be laid in a herringbone pattern if required.
    As for worktops beech, oak or pretty much any soild wood worktops will last a long time subject to correct installation & maintenance.
    Of course if it's abused nothing will last!

    Supplier reckons any floor with Bonkemi on it should be ok for 5 years, worktops need oiling every six months.
