New Flooring Species

Hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for your next project for several reasons. Whether you’re a homeowner, builder, or designer, the versatility and durability of hardwood floors make them a highly desirable option. Our wide selection of flooring can create a customized look that suits your specific needs and preferences.

We’ve dabbled in the hardwood flooring market for a while, but now we’re going all-in, expanding your options like never before! Choose from prefinished or unfinishedengineered or solid, as well as a rich selection of species! Let’s delve into the details of each option to highlight their advantages:

  1. Prefinished or Unfinished: Prefinished hardwood flooring has gained popularity due to its convenience and time-saving benefits. This type of flooring is manufactured and finished at the factory, which means it arrives at your location ready to install. With prefinished hardwood, you can skip the sanding, staining, and sealing process, saving you valuable time and effort. Moreover, prefinished floors often come with factory-applied finishes that provide enhanced resistance to wear, scratches, and moisture, ensuring long-lasting beauty.

Unfinished hardwood flooring, on the other hand, offers you the opportunity to customize the final look of your floors. With unfinished hardwood, the sanding, staining, and sealing processes are done on-site after the installation. This allows for greater flexibility in achieving a specific color, sheen, or custom finish that aligns perfectly with your project’s aesthetic vision.

  1. Engineered or Solid: Engineered hardwood flooring is crafted from multiple layers, with a top layer of real wood and a base of high-quality plywood. This construction enhances stability and minimizes the potential for expansion and contraction due to temperature and humidity changes. Engineered hardwood is a practical choice for areas prone to moisture, such as basements or kitchens. It offers excellent dimensional stability while maintaining the warmth and beauty of natural wood.

Solid hardwood flooring, made from a single piece of wood, exudes timeless elegance and authenticity. Solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished multiple times, allowing you to refresh its appearance and extend its lifespan. It provides exceptional durability, making it an ideal choice for high-traffic areas. Additionally, solid hardwood offers natural insulation properties, helping to regulate temperature and reduce energy consumption.

  1. Rich Selection of Species: The availability of a rich selection of species enables you to create unique and personalized flooring designs. Each wood species possesses distinct characteristics, such as grain patterns, color variations, and hardness levels. Exotic species, such as Brazilian Cherry or Tigerwood, offer captivating and bold aesthetics, making a striking statement in any space. By choosing from a diverse range of species, you can tailor the flooring to match your desired ambiance and design theme.
