Best Hardwood Floors Near You


When you need new hardwood floors, it makes sense to stay local.


As your top destination for better floors, we take our role in your decision-making process seriously. Our goal is for you to fully understand all your hardwood flooring options long before you make any final decisions.


How to Style Your Hardwood Floor

Today, there are hundreds of different hardwood styles to be found.


Each plank has one-of-a-kind grain patterns. There are hardwood styles for every taste. Choose a weathered, wide plank if your tastes are country-inspired; or a glossy and streamlined plank if you prefer a contemporary, minimalist look.


Make your hardwood flooring unique by combining your favorite:


  • Plank Widths
  • Plank Lengths
  • Colors
  • Finishes
  • Gloss Levels


Best Hardwood Species

Hardwood flooring can be crafted from a large variety of different tree species.


Choose between domestic and exotic hardwood species, such as:


  • Birch
  • Red Oak
  • Hickory
  • White Oak
  • Oak
  • Red Male
  • Maple
  • Walnut
  • Shiringa
  • Acacia
  • European White Oak
  • Pecan


Each hardwood species has a unique hardness level and grain pattern, so shop with care. With proper care and maintenance, your hardwood floors will last a long time no matter the species.


What Is Engineered Hardwood Flooring?

As the more traditional favorite, solid hardwood flooring is just what it sounds like: planks that are carved out of one single, solid piece of hardwood.


A much more recent introduction to the flooring field, engineered hardwood is manufactured in wooden layers, which are pressed together in a cross-grain fashion for denser, more affordable flooring.


Let’s learn more about these two distinct flooring families.


  • Engineered hardwood floors are made for humid weather and fluctuating climates. They won’t shrink or expand when they get wet.  A denser build allows it to hold its own, even when confronted with rambling toddlers or an active puppy. Engineered wood can even be refinished once or twice over its functional lifespan.


  • Solid hardwood floors are stunning to look at, but it can be a significant investment compared to its engineered counterpart. However, this investment pays off in the long run by increasing your home’s property value. If reserved for dry and level settings, your solid hardwood floor can last for generations. For those who like to redecorate frequently, a solid floor might be worth the higher costs, as it can be sanded and refinished again.


Where Can I Install a Hardwood Floor?

Hardwood flooring should not be used in a kitchen or bathroom: moisture and humidity are not their friends.


If you love solid hardwood, remember that it performs its best in dry, quieter rooms. Engineered hardwood is your best bet if you have puppies, toddlers, or frequent houseguests. For all your installation questions our flooring experts will have you covered.


Some of our favorite places to install hardwood flooring include:

  • Bedrooms
  • Dens
  • Entryways
  • Offices
  • Meeting Rooms
  • Living rooms
  • Hallways
  • Stairs
  • Pantries
  • Retail Shops


Wherever you install hardwood floors, we don’t recommend attempting this project on your own!

Professional installation is always the best option. Your product warranty probably requires it as a condition of coverage, and hardwood installation is a tedious process that most of us simply don’t have the skills, knowledge, or tools to successfully complete.

Does My Hardwood Floor Need Refinishing?

Has your hardwood floor seen better days?


Here are a few telltale signs your floor needs refinishing:


  • Deep Scratches or Gouges
  • Discolored Spots
  • Dull Finish
  • Warping
  • Severe Wear
  • Wiggling Between Boards
  • Exposed Nails
  • Gaps Between Planks


Don’t worry: our professional hardwood refinishers can give your floor a new life or even a dramatic new look!
