Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood Flooring

Known for their elegance, warmth, versatility, and quality, hardwood floors have many appealing characteristics, including ease of maintenance.  As a result of manufacturing advances, it is now possible to select and install hardwood floors with boards of greater width and length than ever before.  For example, we currently offer engineered hardwood in our showroom that is 8 ½″ wide by 86 ⅝″ long.  On a related front, the advent of engineered hardwood flooring has greatly expanded the areas of the home in which hardwood floors may be installed; for example, it is now possible to install hardwood floors in humid and damp areas such as basements and other below-grade applications.  For those interested in faster and more cost-effective installation, lock, engineered hardwood flooring, such as Mirage Lock Hardwood Flooring, can be used for a quick and easy install without the use of glue or nails.
