With qualities like natural beauty, durability, lasting value and comfort, there
are so many great reasons hardwood flooring makes a smart choice for your
home.

Wood Floors are:

Easy to Maintain: Routine maintenance is a little more than simple sweeping and vacuuming,
always making sure your hardwood floors are protected from moisture and heavy wear
which creates scratches. Preventive maintenance like area rugs, floor protectors (on ALL
furniture on your hardwood floors), and routine maintenance with proper hardwood floor
cleaner should always be exercised (improper products can contribute to additional wear,
may VOID your warranty, and cause failure when recoating.

Ecological Sound: Unlike most floor coverings, wood floors come from a natural resource
that is sustainable. Long gone are the days when timber was cut down with little thought for
the long term consequences on the nation's forests. Today most timber is cut from forests
that are carefully managed to ensure continued resources in the future. In fact, according to
U.S. Forest Service statistics, almost twice as much hardwood timber Is added every year
through new growth as is harvested. Additionally, there is more standing hardwood timber
today than there was 50 years ago.

Healthy: The Environmental Protection Agency has said that indoor air quality is one of our
top health threats. Installed in the home or elsewhere, wood floors help contribute to a
healthy living environment. Hard surface flooring such as hardwood floors does not rap or
harbor dust mites or molds. That creates better air quality for all inhabitants, but especially
for the estimated 35 million Americans who suffer from allergies. The hard surface of wood
floors also helps avoid artificial substances such as pesticides that can accumulate on some
floor coverings. A recent EPA study found that pesticides used in gardens and homes
accumulate on floors and other surfaces in the home, but that wood floors greatly reduce the
accumulation of such toxins. Another concern for the home environment is the off-gassing
of toxins that results from some synthetic materials. Any of these chemicals can make people
in the home chronically ill.

Selection and Variety: With today's technologically advanced manufacturing, stains and
finishes, hardwood floors come in many sizes, styles, colors, finishes and species. These
many choices can compliment any home or office with style and a beautiful product that last
a lifetime. See Custom Wood Floors, Accents. Borders,  Medallions, and Painted Wood
