Hardwood Is Today.

Natural, warm and honest is the feeling you want for your home, you will get it with genuine hardwoods; plus the one-of-a-kind beauty you never get tired of! The warm character of solid hardwood flooring is handsome enough to let you bare your floors to the world with nothing more than a gleaming finish to preserve their beauty. Add rugs and you bring another dimension of color and texture to your decor. Rich oriental or geometric designs – whatever your style – solid hardwood floors provide the perfect setting.

It’s warmer with wood.

Solid hardwood flooring, like all solid wood, is a natural insulator. It’s made of microscopic hollow cells and these air spaces produce high insulating values. It would take 15 inches of concrete to equal the insulating qualities of just one inch of wood.

Solid Hardwood Floors. Future Perfect.

The same enduring qualities which have made solid hardwoods a favorite for so long are projecting it into a bright future. Solid hardwoods fit so well with the way we live, their popularity continues to grow even as architectural styles change. Like a fine piece of furniture, wood flooring increases in value and becomes more beautiful with time. In a national survey, 90 percent of real estate agents said that houses with wood flooring sell faster and for more money.

Solid hardwood flooring works with all types of construction. It can be installed on concrete slabs, on-grade and above-grade, or on conventional wood joist construction over a basement or crawl space. Block and parquet flooring, other choices to the linear look, can also be installed on slabs or conventional joist construction with attention to proper system details.

As you like it.

Color it contemporary with a natural finish or color it in the rich dark hues like floors from America’s past. Solid hardwoods take beautifully to an endless variety of wood tones, from light and natural to very dark finishes, whatever complements your style of home furnishings. The degree of color is determined by the use of stains in the finishing process. These are followed by a penetrating or surface type protective coating. Here you have another choice in the degree of gloss, ranging from a soft, satiny appearance to a very reflective sheen.

Wood’s low cost.

Whatever choices you make in selecting your solid hardwood flooring, the cost over the years generally will be less than the cost of quality carpeting. On average, people replace wall-to-wall carpeting after 11 years, even vinyl tile will only last an estimated 20 years. On the other hand, solid hardwood flooring will last for the life of the building and can be refinished five to 10 or more times, depending on the flooring conditions.

New floors from old.

The trend toward remodeling and renovating has brought about a new appreciation of solid hardwood floors. Machine sanding removes the old finish, an operation that exposes a new generation of wood and overcomes years of wear and neglect. The newly finished floor will be a source of pride for decades to come.
