Hardwood flooring is beautiful, natural, and a great way to add value to your home. It comes in solid and engineered constructions with a variety of finishes including smooth, hand scraped, wire brushed, or distressed for a truly custom look. It is a great choice for creating beautiful spaces in areas such as living rooms, bedrooms, and dens. While hardwood was once a luxury few could afford, innovations in flooring technology have brought the price of genuine hardwood flooring down considerably. Hardwood floors are absolutely timeless and proven to add value to any home.
We carry thousands of products from brands such as Armstrong, Beaulieu, Hallmark, Preverco, Timeless, Mirage, and Shaw. Choose from the most popular species including maple, oak, birch, hickory, and walnut, or from a large selection of exotic woods for a truly unique style.
The Brands We Carry
What is the difference between engineered and solid?
These days hardwood flooring is often divided into two main categories: solid and engineered. A solid hardwood floor is exactly that—a single piece of wood flooring that is machined to join together. An engineered floor is constructed from a core (usually plywood) and a veneer (a thin layer of hardwood). Although there is more work involved in manufacturing an engineer flooring they offer some advantages in terms of price, durability, and stability.
What is the difference between hardwood and softwood?
Would you believe that hardwood is not always harder than softwood? In fact, the difference is actually the type of tree. Hardwood comes from deciduous trees (trees with leaves) and softwood comes from coniferous trees (trees with needles).
What is a Janka Hardness Rating?
Janka rating is a test used by the lumber industry to measure and compare the density of wood species. In general, the denser a floor is, the less likely it is to dent. Of course, it is also important to compare the brands and the type of finish on each product as many concerns are related to scuff marks and scratches.
How do I take care of my hardwood floor?
We’d be happy to provide specific information on your floor, but the most important thing you can do to maintain your floor is to maintain a suitable environment inside the home. Hardwood is hygroscopic which means it will absorb and give off water and most hardwood flooring problems are caused by too much or too little humidity in the environment.
