"Everyone" Has Become a Hardwood
It's not difficult to find
everyone seems to be an expert when it comes to hardwood
flooring these days. From the do it yourselfer that installed
a laminate floor in your sisters house all the way up to the
carpet store that sells one or two lines of hardwood. The
problem is some experts may lead you down the wrong path, or
more important; they may not offer what you really want!
Chances are you may find opinions on this
site that may be different than what the other store down the
street says. Why? Most salespeople do not have the knowledge
to sell hardwood floors and push customers into the drabby
looking hardwoods the masses produce. We're talking about the
standard oak that Bruce manufacturers. Don't get us wrong, we
don't dislike Bruce, but options over the last ten years have
Big Box Stores
Customization has lost favor over the years
with the growth of mega stores or what many are calling bog
box stores. We're talking about Lowes and Home Depot.
Occasionally I enjoy playing the uneducated flooring buyer
just to see what they're up to.
What I've discovered is many stores, but
not all, don't have the experienced sales people to sell
hardwood flooring. They become more agreeable if you like a
product, because why upset the apple cart? It's what you like,
but it may not work for you.

hope you can use to narrow down the selections. Below is a
graphic you will find on every product page. The most
important item would be the installation type as not all
hardwood floors can be successfully installed the same way.
All blue underlined links in the product specification area
lead to a simple, clear description once clicked on.
What Worked Up North May Not in
Some of us seeking retirement homes or vacation residences in
Florida may prefer to have the same hardwood floor they had up
north. With all the concrete
subfloors we have in the south, traditional floors, common
up north are rarely an option in the big home centers and
other smaller retail operations.
you still prefer
2 1/4" strip flooring hardwood there are
options with concrete others aren't aware of. You can choose
more expensive labor intensive application with the
solid hardwood on
concrete and plywood method. However two products shown
below offer another alternative.
