Nobody beats our selection of hardwood flooring.

 

Hardwood floors offer the unmistakable charm and timeless beauty only found in authentic, real wood. They are never out of fashion and add real value to the home. Many interior decorators today prefer hardwood floors as the base layer and then add an area rug to enhance the room’s overall color scheme. Through advancements in manufacturing of wood floors, modern hardwood floors are more durable and adaptable to many different living areas. Engineered wood floors allow homeowners to use hardwood flooring in areas of the home that they would never have considered in the past. Hardwood floors come in a wide variety of wood species, colors, and widths. Besides the classic North American hardwoods, like red oak, white oak, maple, and ash, many manufacturers now offer exotic hardwood species from all over the world.

Exotic hardwoods give homeowners the chance to better express their own personal decorating tastes with a more unique looking floor. A beautiful wood floor is an investment that will do more to define your home’s style than any other single element. Take the time to find the right floor and you’ll be rewarded for years to come. Styles in flooring may change but the beauty of hardwood is forever. We can help you find the right hardwood floor for your home.

Cork

 

 

Completely natural, environmentally sound, and beautiful too, cork is such a remarkable material that even modern technology has been unable to match or surpass it. A completely natural product, cork is harvested without damaging or chopping down a single tree, making it the ultimate environmentally friendly product.

Cork comes from the bark of the cork tree and is made of millions of cork cells. Each cell functions as a miniature sound and thermal insulator, as well as a miniature pressure and shock absorber.

 

By regaining its shape time and time again, no matter how much it is walked on or how long furniture stands on it, cork always retains its elasticity. These unique qualities make it ideal for use in flooring as it reduces sound, is warm to the touch, and comfortable to walk on. Cork is durable, quiet, warm, comfortable, and not to mention, easy to clean and maintain. Couple that with the beauty of a cork floor and cork becomes a perfect choice for any home

Hardwood and Cork Floor Care

DON’T DAMP MOP

Water and wood floors don’t mix! Use only the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning products on your hardwood floor.

VACUUM REGULARLY

Small stones, mud and gritty dirt tracked in from outside can play havoc on the wood floors finish. To help combat this use long bristle welcome mats placed at all outside entrances for people to wipe their feet on before entering onto the floors. Also, vacuum using a soft bristle brush attachment.

USE THE PROPER CHAIR GLIDES

Narrow wheels, sharp wooden legs, and metal furniture legs can scratch and dent hardwood floors. Any furniture that rests directly on top of a hardwood floor should have felt protectors or furniture coasters under all its feet. For extremely heavy objects such as a piano, use wide, non-staining rubber cups. Purchasing floor protectors is cheap insurance for protecting your hardwood floor investment.

PROTECT FROM DIRECT SUNLIGHT

Your wood floor may change color or fade due to exposure to direct sunlight. The sun’s UV rays accelerates the oxidation and aging of wood, so periodically rearranging your furniture and closing the curtains during intense periods of sunlight can help avoid the problem.

Don’t Use Oil Soaps

There are many over-the-counter oil or wax based cleaning products that may damage or dull the finish of your wood floor. The best suggestion is to only use the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning products on your hardwood flooring.

Never Wax a Urethane Wood Finish

If your hardwood floor has a polyurethane finish never use a paste wax on the floor’s surface. A paste wax may form a sticky film on your floor and allow tracked in dirt to stick to your wood finish. Polyurethane finishes will not adhere to any wax and adding a fresh coat of polyurethane to your floor will be very difficult.

Trim Pet’s Claws

Pet’s claws may scratch you floors finish. Regularly trim dog’s claws to help reduce scratching to your floor’s finish.

Wipe Spills Immediately

When accidents happen and some liquid gets spilled on your hardwood floor, you should use a slightly damp white cloth or paper towel to immediately clean up and dry the affected area. For more difficult spots, follow the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning procedures.
