Oak Hardwood Flooring

There are about 600 different species of oak. The vast majority of flooring that is sold in the United States is made from domestic Oak lumber. In today’s blog, we will discuss why Oak is so popular. I won’t talk about all these different types and the variations that come between species. I will cover red oak hardwood and white oak hardwood because these are the two big hitters in the flooring market. This information will hopefully give an explanation of why there is so much oak lumber in use for hardwood floors and why it’s so popular. At the end of this post, I list our oak hardwood flooring collections and deals....Read More

Hazel Creek & Mills River from COREtec

“May you live in interesting times”.

That is about when laminate flooring was introduced, and what a run it had! More recently, LVP floors have made a big splash, and continue to do so. It seems like each year an industry leader like COREtec will introduce another breakthrough in the resilient business that firmly embeds the entire market in “interesting times”. Hazel Creek & Mills River are SPC Floors...Read More

Maybe because customers that buy Hickory floors tend to be the most satisfied customers that we have? Possibly.

Hardwood Grades 101: 4 Oak Natural Grades Explained

In the wood flooring business, the goal that every manufacturer seeks is lumber clean enough to make their Select floors. Unfortunately, only about 60% of the tree will become the high-graded material. What does the manufacturer do with the rest? We work very closely with a couple of major manufacturers to develop products that use these lower wood grades, and move them into the market (and out of their warehouses!) quickly. Keep in mind that the grades for hardwood lumber are quite different from unfinished hardwood flooring grades, and unfinished hardwood flooring grades have very little in common...Read More
