Species and Grades

The first step in selecting hardwood flooring is choosing a species of wood. Each species has its own characteristics, and it’s up to you to decide what you want and need. We offer four types of durable wood that can harmonize with practically any decor. Once you’ve selected your species of wood, you must decide on a grade. It has an impact on the look you want to achieve, and it can also affect the price of the product. Do you prefer a floor that is uniform or one with knots? It’s simply a matter of taste!
