Our specialized hardwood flooring is direct from the sawmill, to our showroom, and straight to your home. By eliminating the middle-man, we are able to provide quality hardwood floors at a fraction of the cost. All unfinished flooring is 3/4" thick and available in 2 1/4", 3", 4" and 5" widths.
Hardwood flooring is "graded" according to distinct qualities present in the wood. The grade of the wood has nothing to do with the quality of the wood, it is simply sorted by its appearance based on the presence of knots and natural color variation. Please see the National Wood Flooring Association page for the grading guidelines that we follow. While this link refers to oak, similar rules apply for all types of flooring.
Poplar is a softer wood that features a lot of character. Its color ranges from a very light tan color to a dark brown or even almost black tone, though it may feature other colors such as yellows, greens, and sometimes even deep purplish and reddish hints. Poplar ranks at a 540 on the hardness scale.
