Thank you for stopping by!
It’s been two and a half years since our move, and now we’ve upgraded our website as well. We hope that this will be a great source of inspiration for new and potential clients. We want to make finding, designing and installing your hardwood floors a great experience and we want to help guide you towards the best solutions for your project. We’re not here to try to sell you one type of hardwood floor vs. another. We have it all, sell it all, do it all. Whatever your fancy, whatever your style, we’re here to make it happen for you.
Before we get deep into the woodwork with specifics and minute details, let’s just dispel a few myths and misconceptions that we often hear or see floating around on the internet.
Unfinished and Prefinished, solid and engineered hardwood floors
Engineered floors aren’t junk! Like anything it has to be well made, and it has to be well made to work specifically with our temperamental Colorado climate. Both of these requirements are more than attainable if you know what you are doing, and you value quality craftsmanship.
Acclimation time is arbitrary! Every hardwood floor will need time to acclimate to you home, and it’s environment. Some manufacturers and retailers will give you a time frame up front as to how long it will take to acclimate to your residential or commercial space. Usually a week or two from splitting the wood to acclimation. This is an arbitrary chunk of time and should be disregarded. The truth is, it takes the wood the time it takes. It can take a day, or it can take more than two weeks. It all depends on the state of the wood when it gets to your space. There’s no rushing it. All you can do is use the right tools, like a moisture meter, to measure the wood from day to day to see how it is reacting. We know it’s not popular for a contractor to tell you “it’ll be done when it’s done”, but if you want the job done right, then you’ll have to let go, be patient and let the wood do its thing. If you’re lucky, the wood will be done sooner than you think and the project can get underway.
All about that base! Floor finishes with a water base that is. The wood flooring finish industry used to be dominated by oil based polyurethane floor finishes. Today, the water-based chemistry has by far exceeded the oil based chemistry. Combine more innovative and advanced science with the Clean Air Legislation in California, and the water-based wood floor finish is now leading the pack.
