There are three categories of wood flooring on the market: Solid Flooring, Engineered Flooring and Acrylic Impregnated Flooring.  Only types 1 and 2 will be addressed here as they are the most commonly used for residential purposes.


Solid Wood Flooring

Solid wood flooring, by definition is any type of wood, regardless of width or length, which is comprised of one piece of wood from top to bottom.  It is nailed down to 3/4” exterior grade plywood and is appropriate to use in any room in the house.  It can either be factory finished (pre-finished) or unfinished (sand-on-site).  Sand-on-site solid wood best allows for personal taste and preference.  By choosing the species, stain, finish and pattern in which it is laid, solid wood gives you a great opportunity for customization.  Adding borders and medallions can further enhance a floor’s unique appearance.  Your solid wood floor will last a lifetime and also give you the option to have it sanded and re-stained to give it a new look.

Domestic Hardwood includes Red Oak, White Oak, Ash, Beech, Birch, Cherry, Cypress, Heart Pine, Hickory, Maple, & Walnut.

Imported Hardwood includes Bamboo, Brazilian Cherry, & Mahogany.


Engineered Hardwood Flooring

What is engineered flooring?  Engineered flooring is made using a cross ply veneer construction using 5 plies of hardwood veneer.  This is the most stable construction of all wood floors that we know about on the market today.  It is designed to be glued directly to a concrete slab.  Engineered flooring is not to be confused with the name "laminate flooring" which is synonymous with products that are made to look like wood, but are not real wood.  This product is for those interested in a custom finish.  We recognize the importance of creating a custom design with a particular stain, finish and species of wood.

The product line consists of eight different species of flooring including:  Ash, Cherry, Elm, Hickory, Maple, Red Oak, White Oak, and Wild Pecan.  All species are available in widths of  2, 3 and 5 in

If you want a custom finished hardwood floor and if you are working on a concrete subfloor or if you want a certain wood that is unavailable or priced too high in solid strip flooring, then engineered hardwood flooring is the answer.
