Solid hardwood can last for many, many years in your home as long as it is properly taken care of.

Hardwood installation

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