A few things to consider when choosing Hardwood Flooring:

COLOR

Hardwood colors run from almost white to black, with browns and grays in between. Medium colors are cozy and rich while dark colors are modern and chic. The species can impact the colors so let our staff help you select the best species to get the desired color for your space.

WIDTH

 Hardwood flooring is usually thought of as the ¾” thick and 2.1/4” wide boards, but is also available in various sizes from 3” to 6” or more widths. The typical 2.1/4” boards are called strips. If the boards are 3” or more they are called planks. Each style creates a unique look. Ask our professionals to help you achieve the desired look.

Always ask for samples of the Hardwoods you are considering to see how they will look in your home. All lighting is different and will change the overall appearance.

Wine Corks

CORK

Cork is sustainable hard flooring that is made from the bark of the cork tree. Cork comes in planks and tiles that are both easy to install.

Hardwood Installation

SOLID HARDWOOD

Solid Hardwood is 100% solid wood. Most solids are nailed to the subfloor. Because it is susceptible to shrinking and expanding from extreme temperature changes, solids are not suitable for installation over concrete slabs and not recommended for below grade use.

ENGINEERED HARDWOOD

Engineered Hardwood is also 100% wood. Its cross-ply construction allows it to be installed above or below grade and even on concrete slabs. Engineered flooring is glued down, or stapled down but can sometimes be floated over an existing floor.
