Why the Hardwood Floor ?
Hardwood floors offer a wide selection of styles depending on the look you’re going for.
Solid hardwood comes in stains from light to dark as well as styles from traditional to a more modern look. One thing is for sure – solid hardwood is a reliable flooring choice for the long-term homeowner. In addition to timeless designs and rich textures, solid hardwood has an unwavering reputation of longevity and increased home values.
Cherry and maple wood offer rich looks with reddish and light-colored stains. Hickory is great in rustic living rooms with its thick, hand-scraped textures and deep coloration. Oak provides the classic hardwood look and works in virtually any home. The looks hardwood can give your home are virtually endless.

How to Care for Your Hardwood Flooring
Beautiful hardwood is timeless and always in style. And it requires minimal upkeep. Yours will go far if you closely follow all manufacturer recommendations and stay proactive. Cleaning and maintaining solid and/or engineered hardwood can be simple:
- Sweep up spills, crumbs, dust and dirt into piles. Use a vacuum without beater bars or mechanisms, which can scratch your floor. At least once a week is recommended.
- Address standing liquids immediately with a clean, non-abrasive material. The less water and/or solution used, the better.
- Hardwood is resilient, but not invincible. Avoid buffing machines, steel wool, scouring powder, and steam mops to help prevent surface abrasion and warping.
