TYPES

Unfinished Hardwood
Unfinished hardwood refers to the manner in which you purchase the product, which is of course - unfinished. This is the way that the originally wood floors were done. The rough wood is bought and nailed down to the sub floor, which is then sanded, sealed, stained and then finished. The hardwood is available in MANY different sizes and thicknesses. The widths range anywhere from 1½ to anything above. We usually recommend that you remain within 2 ¼”- 3¼ (remember the movement due to moisture?). Unfinished hardwood is very much in use today.


Pre finished Hardwood
The pre-finished hardwood comes in strips that are already sanded, stained and covered with several coats of polyurethane that are applied in the factory. A great variety of species, grades, colors, finishes and strip widths are offered. Quick and easy to install, without the dust and odors associated with unfinished hardwood. Right now, most of the industry is gearing towards the pre finished. With the new Aluminum-Oxide finishes, and the controls that the factories have, you will never be able to match.

 EXOTIC WOODS FLOORING

The first thing that you need to research when shopping for exotic wood flooring is the type of wood you want to use. You can select from exotic woods like Brazilian maple, rosewood, zebrawood and more. Each type of exotic wood has its own hardness rating and its own hues and grain patterns. You should request samples of the woods that you are interested in so that you have a better idea of what they will look like after the flooring is installed.
Brazilian Maple Rosewood Zebrawood
Is a dense cream-colored lumber, with a clear grain, to nearly white. The wood undergoes a medium degree of color change, with a slight ambering over time of a more golden cream color.  Patagonian Cherry/Tiete Rosewood is unique pinkish red, rose colored wood which is extremely dense.  With distinct brown/black lines alternating between a tan colored back-ground, Zebrawood is primarily used for design accents.
