There are many choices of hardwood widths, lengths, and final finish to suit all tastes and applications, from matte to glossy all from reputable brands. If you are looking for any specific hardwood flooring in the Greater Toronto Area, please come visit us.
We are experts when it comes to solid hardwood flooring, and it has certain limitations and may not be suitable for all areas due to natural characteristics of wood. Moisture and temperature fluctuations cause solid hardwood to expand and contract so you must consider that fact when deciding what type of wood flooring you would like to have in your home. There is no standard size when it comes to the solid hardwood flooring you will find in our Toronto store, but typically the largest they come in is 5” wide by ¾” thick so as not to compromise the structure of the flooring. We also recommend that solid hardwood flooring not be placed directly over concrete due to the possibility of trapping moisture beneath the flooring causing multiple problems. Solid wood can be cut into three different styles they are rift-sawn, flat-sawn and quarter-sawn. Quarter-sawn and rift-sawn will have the same appearance because only one side of the wood is visible on flooring.
