Fashionable & Cozy: Hardwood
Hardwood guarantees a pleasing, warm, and natural living atmosphere. The color of the wood can be matched with the existing furnishings, but it is important to remember that the color is going to change a little as the wood matures. We would be pleased to advise you in this regard.

The Systems

  • Solid nail-down only - use for above ground, or sub-floors; requires correct expansion allowances between vertical walls
  • Longstrip float, and/or nail-down - used for all grade levels on wood sub-floors and/or concrete slabs
  • Engineered float, or nail-down - use for any grade level on wood sub-floors and/or concrete slabs

Care Tips

  • Sweep or vacuum regularly to remove debris and accumulated dirt from the floor.
  • Once a month use 1 cup of vinegar to 1 galloon of warm water. 
  • Water can dull your floor's finish and permanently damage the wood so only use the vinegar solution once a month!
  • Although hardwood floors can be scratched, any scratches to the finished top layer are usually easy to repair with a buffing and recoating the floors.
  • Over time, sunlight will change the color of most stained hardwood flooring to some degree.
  • Hardwood floor finishes can be restored to their original luster.

Resistant & Natural: Tiles
Duraceramic tile is a functional, warm and practical choice for floors. Tile and stones are great products for countertops, backsplash or walls. Tiles offer versatility in application as well as beauty from their design potential.

The Advantages

  • Durable - professionally installed duraceramic will be warmer to the touch, and will not shatter if something is dropped on it due to a limestone base.
  • Easy care - duraceramic, and glazed cermaic tiles resist odors, stains and dirt, and they can be cleaned easily with a sponge or a damp mop, and most ordinary household cleaners.
  • Scratch-resistant – tiles with a PEI rating over 3 are very resistant to scratches and scuff marks.
  • Resistant to fire - ceramic tiles will not burn or give off toxic fumes.
  • Water-resistant - glazed ceramic tiles, and duraceramic will not absorb moisture, meaning that common liquid spills in the kitchen are of little concern.

Care Tips

  • Clean your tiles with a broom or a steam vac. Caution: Uncovered suction cups can quickly scratch up your tiles.
  • Tiles can be cleaned with water and a special, mild cleaner.
