- TYPES -


- ENGINEERED -


Engineered wood flooring is made with a veneer from solid wood that can be more durable under extreme temperatures. It can be installed over concrete, glued, stapled, or free floated. Its plywood base is dimensionally stable, meaning that engineered floors are less likely to warp and flex upon contact with moisture, unlike solid hardwood floors which can be susceptible to heat and humidity. Quality engineered floors are made from solid wood and can be sanded and refinished if the wear layer is a minimum of 3.0 millimeters.


- SOLID -


Solid hardwood is made from a solid piece of hardwood and is typically 3/4" inch thickness. Solid hardwood is sensitive to shrinking and expanding when exposed to extreme heat and humidity. Due to its thickness, it can be sanded down and refinished many times.


- AMERICAN MADE -


An American made product utilizes raw materials, production, and labor within the United States. Buying American made products is a personal choice that creates a positive effect: it helps boost the economy, supports American jobs, and revives the manufacturing industry. American made products are synonymous with quality and safety - consumers know they get a better product when they buy American.


- SALVAGED -


Salvaged hardwood floors are made from repurposed timber material that would otherwise be burned or destroyed due to agricultural clearing or development purposes.


- SALVAGED SPECIES -

- TEXAS POST OAK -


Texas Post Oak hardwood is distinctive from regular oak due to its intriguing grain that varies from board to board in a pattern that is not reoccurring.


- TEXAS MESQUITE -


Mesquite hardwood is an extremely durable hardwood species, rich in color and character that combine to create unique, rustic floors.


- SOUTHERN PECAN -


Southern Pecan hardwood's color variation and rustic grain provide a visual interest unique from any other wood, making it an ideal candidate for a natural finish.


- LIVE SAWN OAK -


Live Sawn Oak hardwood lends itself to a wide range of cuts, finishes, and stains resulting in clean floors with natural beauty and simplicity.

- TEXTURES -

- NATURAL FACE -


The natural movement that occurs in the drying process of wood after it has been cut creates unique dips in the wood that resembles the look of worn down reclaimed wood. Natural face flooring keeps these dips, rather than sawing it flat, creating a truly unique texture.



- HAND SCRAPED -


Hand scraping is a process to make a product look old, somewhat distressed and worn. Most products claiming to be hand scraped flooring are actually scraped by a machine. Hardwood flooring manufacturers that appreciate craftsmanship will complete this process by hand to achieve an authentic hand scraped product.



- WIRE BRUSHED -


Wire brushing is a texturizing technique that enhances the wood grain and adds visual interest. By adding a subtle texture, it creates a durable floor that is able to mask possible mishaps from everyday occurrences.
