Strip Harwood Flooring

Hardwood strip flooring is what most consumers are familiar with and is part of the solid hardwood group. There are hundreds of different options ranging in different widths, normally between 1’½” to 3” wide. They are referred as “strip” hardwood flooring, due to the fact that they are manufactured in long strips, which have to be installed one at a time.

Plank Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood plank flooring is manufactured from solid wood planks but, normally consist up of more of the harder species (cedar and oak) and the exotic species (redwood, ebony, and ironwood) hardwoods. Normally all hardwood plank flooring will need to be custom cut for the structure or room. The major advantage to choosing hardwood plank flooring is when a section or plank becomes damaged, it can easly be replaced without having to tear up the entire floor. This is a wonderful trait for commercial uses within high traffic areas, such as restaurant or bar hardwood flooring.

Parquet Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood parquet flooring is the “grand daddy” style of hardwood flooring. It is done by using unique geometric patterns to develop an elegant design by using several types of wood. Today, almost all parquet floors are designed into preassembled tiles that are then fitted together onto a subfloor.>The price for this style of hardwood flooring will increase due to the complexity of its design, the types of wood that are chosen, and the required high-end finish. We have laid down some of the most elaborate parquet wood floors in Grand Junction and surrounding areas.
