When it comes to choosing a floor covering for your building project, consider the many benefits of hardwood. In today’s fast paced world, better health and a cleaner living environment are important.
Hardwood flooring will not trap dirt like carpet. Instead it provides a cleaner environment because it does not collect allergens or dust. It will be a relief to know that your family is living in a healthier home; one that is eco-friendly and was exclusively created by Mother Nature.
Wood floors are available in a number of popular species, both domestic and exotic.

The appearance of wood determines its “grade”. All grades are equally strong and serviceable, but each creates an entirely different look.
Select and Better – Select Wood is almost clear, and may contain natural characteristics such as small knots and color variations. This is often because of these natural features and the character they bring to the room.
Common Wood has more natural characteristics such as larger knots and color variations. Because of these natural features, it brings character to any room.
1 Common/Exclusive – Has a variegated appearance, light and dark colors, knots, flags, and “wormholes”.
2 Common/Traditional – Is rustic in appearance and emphasizes all wood characteristics of the species.
