Few floors capture the same unique detail and natural appeal as real hardwood. Beyond looking great, hardwood also has many practical benefits, including improving the value of your property in many cases. It’s one of the longest-lasting flooring options available. It’s also considered a good choice for homes with pets and young children because it’s hypoallergenic and durable.
Natural wood floors are also popular for their durability, as well as their beautiful, timeless looks.

Hardwood flooring comes in many different styles, from rustic and weathered dark wood floors to airy and bright light wood floors, and everything in between. There are many characteristics that are specific to different wood species. For example, natural oak is one of the strongest hardwood floors and features attractive, even graining. We also carry many other popular wood species, such as maple, hickory, birch, Brazilian cherry, and walnut. You’ll also find narrow and wide hardwood planks, along with beveled edges, multi-tonal shading, and much more. Additionally, you can choose different shine levels, from glossy to matte, and many hardwood manufacturers use unique texturing techniques like hand scraping and wire brushing to achieve different aesthetic effects.
There are two main types of hardwood flooring: solid and engineered. Solid hardwood is made from a single, thick piece of premium hardwood throughout. Engineered hardwood is made using laminated layers of composite wood with a genuine hardwood veneer at the surface. Engineered floors are more water-resistant and can withstand heavier foot traffic better than solid wood floors. Solid hardwood flooring is thick enough to be refinished over and over again, as opposed to some engineered floors with thinner veneers.
Solid wood is recommended for dry, above or on-grade areas, while engineered hardwood can be installed on all levels of your home. Since wood is naturally porous and tends to swell and warp with humidity and spill exposure, you want to avoid installing it in bathrooms, kitchens, and other high-moisture settings. However, we do have Hydrotek™, our waterproof hardwood collection, which is 100% water-repellent, thanks to its unique design, and popular in these types of spaces.
When you shop with us, you’ll find a beautiful selection of wood flooring options. We have a full range of hardwood styles, including everything from classic red oak to trendy white pine. We also offer comprehensive hardwood installation services that will leave you with a new floor that is both functional and unique. As a member of the Carpet One cooperative, the largest flooring co-op in the nation, we can compete with big box stores that monopolize the market, while staying locally-owned. Our co-op gives us more negotiation power with suppliers, so we can pass on lower hardwood prices to you, all while delivering caring, personalized, and professional service.
