Why Choose Wood?
Wooden floors will add beauty and
character to your home. We offer a great variety
of woods and will help you choose the best product for
your application. The right wood in conjunction
with the right finish will provide an excellent floor
that is beautiful, durable, and easy to clean.
Certain woods have extra durability for use in high
traffic areas, bathrooms, and kitchens.
As far as cleanliness goes, wood
floors are a much better choice than carpet.
Carpets trap dust, dander, allergens, and odors that
generally remain in the carpet until it is replaced.
A occasional dusting with a Swifferฎ
is all your wood floor will need to remove dry dust and
dirt. A damp mop will remove mud and liquid spots
when needed. The occasional clump of mud can be
whisked up with dustpan and brush and the occasional
spill can be wiped up with a paper towel.
Unlike laminate or other plastic
products, real wood floors can be renewed over and over
again, thus the floor can easily last the lifetime of
your home. This has both economic and
environmental benefits. Depending on the wood and
finish that you choose, your wood floor can go many
years, even decades, without needing a refinish.
Custom Wood Floors
These are the floors that you will
not find at home centers or floor stores. Lengths are

equate to costly. Depending on the grade and species,
this type of floor can fit into most flooring budgets.
Lead-time for a custom manufactured floor is generally
