We carry a full range of native and exotic hardwood species, including:
Each species has different attributes and offer varying degrees of scratch and stain-resistance. Hardwood planks can be unfinished or pre-finished. Unfinished planks allow for customization, while pre-finished planks are the most durable.
There is slight difference in the appearance of solid and engineered hardwood. The real differences are in the construction of the plank.
Solid hardwood flooring means whole panels of hardwood, without any special construction. You can refinish multiple times, so your solid hardwood can last for a lifetime.
Engineered hardwood flooring contains three to seven layers of wood veneers pressed together cross-grain. This offsets wood’s tendency to expand or contract. Engineered hardwood is more stable with less seasonal gapping. The top layer of engineered hardwood is a premium layer of wood, giving it an appearance like solid hardwood.
Cork and bamboo flooring offer unique benefits that could be perfect for your home. With their visually appealing designs and versatility, they’re always appealing.
Bamboo flooring is environmentally sound. Its hard surface can withstand heavy foot traffic and even moisture. Its unique appearance is noteworthy. Bamboo flooring has a pattern of dark bands that truly set it apart. It will grow back after harvesting, since its roots stay in place and let the plant grow again.
Cork flooring is the most environmentally friendly woof option as it’s made only from the bark of the cork oak tree. The tree remains unharmed and continues to grow. Cork is extremely soft underfoot, flexible, and warm to the touch. It absorbs sound, manages moisture, and is considered waterproof.
Traditional hardwood takes up to one hundred years to grow before it is harvested. In comparison, bamboo is harvested between three and six years of age, while cork takes between eight and fourteen years to fully mature. Once a cork tree is fully matured, it will continue producing for up to 150 years or longer!
Depending on the type of hardwood flooring there are diverse installation locations. Consider our 100% waterproof hardwood, which has a durable vinyl sublayer and moisture-repellent surface.
We recommend a professional installation. Subfloor preparation is essential since unseen moisture under your floor planks can be disastrous. Most engineered hardwood comes in floating floors and locks together. Solid hardwood is glued or nailed down for a permanent install. It is important to leave a gap between the base of the walls and the floors because hardwood naturally expands over time. Once all the planks are in place and installed, we'll check the surface to make sure there aren't any gaps between planks.
The relative humidity level in your home ebbs and flows with the seasons, without intervention. Relative humidity the level of water vapor in the air- can make or break your flooring over time. A higher-than-ideal humidity level will cause swells, warps, and cracks in your hardwood. On the other hand, a lower-than-ideal humidity level causes planks to shrink: an equally damaging prospect.
A consistent relative humidity level is the key to happier hardwood. You can rely on tools such as humidistats or hydrometers to always obtain a 42 percent relative humidity level. Other items that can help accomplish this goal are insulated curtains and shades, air conditioners, and humidifiers.
