RECLAIMED WOOD CHOICES
Many of our products are available F.S.C. certified and you can get some species from reclaimed lumber. There are a variety of cuts available which include plain sawn, quarter sawn, rift and quarter sawn, and the grading of lumber ranges from clear (free of knots) to character-rustic grade for a wide selection of flooring available. Widths are generally from 1 ½” to 7” but are available up to 12” wide.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR FLOORS
Prefinished solid and engineered floors are available. We also do custom parquets and border work, inlays and wood air vent covers.
SANDING, STAINING, REFINISHING
We will give you an expert, honest answer about the condition of your floors and let you know when it is time to refinish, or if the floor needs a screen and recoat.
SANDING YOUR FLOORS
Floor sanding and refinishing is necessary if one or more areas exist where the original finish has worn through to bare wood; if the finish is moderately to heavily scratched, or has chipped away altogether in places, or if the floor’s coverage with rugs or furniture has caused environmental discoloring in some areas.
STAINING YOUR FLOORS
If you prefer to add a color stain to your floor, we use stains that are compatible with our finishes, whether it is the oils and waxes, or the urethanes. We always provide a sample of the stain if you request it to make sure it is the shade you want.
REFINISHING YOUR FLOORS
Floor screen and coating entails cleaning and buffing the top layer of the surface finish and applying a new coat of finish. This procedure will not take out deep scratches or stains on your floor.
CHOOSE THE CORRECT FINISH
Waterborne polyurethanes, oil-based polyurethanes, Low VOC; finish options include matte, satin, semi-gloss, and gloss. .
