Hardwood floors provide a natural and unique flooring option. They come in a choice of species, and a broad range of constructions and widths, shades, textures and finishes.

Wood floors originate from natural materials that represent a range of character and color. These beautiful hardwoods differ structurally by thickness, hardness and construction, and by method of milling and manufacturer. Wood floors differ visually by species, grading, width, stain, and gloss level.
