Hardwood installation

There are many different styles of hardwood boards we can install. These styles are planks, strips, and parquet. Planks are the most popular types and are available in different widths ranging from 3 inches to 5 or even 7 inches. Many newer styles of wide planks even use a combination of widths to vary the look of the flooring. Strip flooring choices are usually available in widths below 3 inches. These strips look as good today as they did 50 years ago and are sure to stand the test of time. Parquet flooring uses small boards arranged in geometric patterns. These can range from simple combinations to incredibly elaborate and detailed patterns.
