Did you know hardwood floors are made of many different types of trees?
Your new hardwood flooring is made using a large range of different tree species. They can be domestic, meaning they’re harvested right here in North America, or exotic, meaning they’re sourced overseas.
Each tree species looks and acts differently, with unique grain patterns and distinctive hardness levels. Certain options like bamboo and cork are considered eco-friendly.

You’ll want to be ready when our flooring installers arrive!
Plan ahead. Once you’ve picked out your perfect hardwood floor, it’s time to do your homework. Clear your room of all furniture, art, and knick knacks, and clean your floor or subfloor. It should be clean and level for best results.
Adjust your thermostat. Your interior climate needs to have the right balance of relative humidity, with no drastic changes in the days leading up to Installation Day. This is important, since your planks will arrive a few days before the big event, giving them time to adjust to your home.
Talk to our experts. We’ll want to hear it all well before the hammers start pounding. Let us know which direction you’d like your planks to go, and other important info, like proper measurements.
