Why choose hardwood?

Prized for its natural beauty and lasting durability, hardwood in your home makes a rich visual statement but keeps cleanup a breeze.

Hardwood floors combine strength and style. Our wide variety of colors, textures, species and styles make it easy to find the perfect choice for your home.

We offer both solid and engineered hardwood from a variety of manufacturers including Mohawk.

In solid wood flooring, each plank is a solid piece of wood from the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods. These hardwood floors are best installed on or above grade. Wood species vary in hardness and light sensitivity, so keep foot traffic, furniture and light exposure in mind when choosing a species.
 
 
 
 
Engineered hardwood flooring is made from real hardwood with a cross-ply construction that resists expansion and contraction from humidity changes. It can be installed on any level.

Our favorite aspect about hardwood flooring is the way it looks. You can choose more uniform patterns or select a style with distinctive natural variations, knots and mineral marks. Light-colored hardwoods will open up spaces to produce an airy vibe. Golden honey tones add a warm ambiance.

Wide planks are perfect for crafting a historic or rustic feel and will enhance the natural beauty of any wood type you choose.

Hardwood flooring will last for decades when properly cared for. We would love to give your home this timeless beauty.

There are many hardwood species, stains and finishes available and we invite you to browse our catalog HERE or visit Marsh's Carpet to view them in person.

Choices in hardwood flooring

The great thing about hardwood flooring is that you can use it throughout your home. While it isn’t feasible to install solid wood in your basement or below ground spaces, you can still utilize engineered wood floors to keep the continuity flowing. Engineered flooring is still real wood flooring. However, it uses a wood veneer that is attached to a specialized backing and covered with a protective layer, for extended lifespan.

One of the first choices you’ll be faced with is which wood species to select. Different species have different properties, and one is sure to be better than others, depending upon the traffic flow.

For areas that have high levels of traffic, ask your flooring specialist about species that are hard and dense. For lower level traffic areas, you can safely select something that’s a little softer.

Once your species has been chosen, you can start to consider what type of stain is best suited for that option. Some species hold a stain better than others, while some species have a beautiful color all their own. In those cases, you might just want to have a clear topcoat applied for the full effect. At this stage, you can also select a prestained product, or one that can have the stain applied at your location.
