Few options beat the elegance and enduring beauty of natural hardwood. Hardwood flooring can last the life of your home, thanks to its durability. You can sand and refinish it multiple times throughout the years. It increases your property value so it’s an excellent investment.

Our local experts are here to listen to your hardwood flooring ideas and help you find the perfect product for your next installation project.
Modern hardwood flooring comes in a variety of styles, including wide and narrow planks, multi-colour wood, distressed finishes, and whitewashes. Unlike wood-look imitations, each genuine hardwood plank is completely unique, with gorgeous flowing grain patterns, textures, and gnarls. You can also choose beveled edges and extra slip, stain, and abrasion-resistant finishes. It’s also important to pick the right wood species for your home as well since that can play a big factor in several key factors.
Beyond the style of hardwood, it's also important to decide on what type of wood species you want. From natural oak floors to maple, hickory, walnut, cherry, birch, and exotics, there are a wide array of options. Beyond their unique appearances, each species offers various levels of scratch, dent, and moisture resistance. Certain species will transform into different shades as they age. Our flooring experts will guide you through the benefits of each hardwood species and help you decide on a product that works for you.
If you’re considering a hardwood installation, it’s always good to make informed decisions. With the region’s chilly winter season and balmy summer, a carefully chosen hardwood floor will ensure happy returns. We can help ensure every flooring decision is made carefully. Today there are two major forms of hardwood on the market – solid and engineered. Here are things to keep in mind about the different hardwood flooring families.
Solid hardwood planks are hardwood floors in their traditional format. Solid hardwood is prized by those seeking the ultimate value-enhancer. It can be sanded and refinished multiple times over the years, appealing to those with changing styles. Solid hardwood is best reserved for quiet, dry interiors. It cannot be used below grade, and a steady relative humidity level is required.
Engineered hardwood flooring looks and feels like its solid counterpart. Made of multiple layers of pressed hardwood and resin, engineered planks are much denser and more resilient. These options are equipped with a scratch-resistant surface for additional reinforcement. Engineered hardwood can be installed below grade and offers a fair degree of moisture resistance.
We do not recommend installing hardwood flooring yourself. Proper hardwood flooring installation is essential because if done wrong your floors can become damaged and end up needing to be replaced sooner. But there’s no need to stress! We’re here to save you time and headaches. We have an in-house installation team who are skilled in all forms of hardwood installation, including glue, staple, and floating floors.
