what we do

1

Wood Selection -We welcome all first time buyers to visit our showroom so they can see first hand the beauty and grain offered by the different species of wood. Traditional to trendy – we have a wood flooring product for you. The samples section of our website has a great range of the more traditional wood flooring; however our options don’t end there. We have access to all the latest trends in re-claimed products like Tobacco Barn Wood, Horse Country Oak and Old Mill & Factory Wood. Additionally, we can obtain wood flooring with new treatments like fumed, wire-brushed and hand-scraped.

Wood Lengths & Widths – We will guide you through the process of determining how much flooring you will need to order including waste as well as help you determine the best width and lengths of planks. Longer and wider planks will be more costly.

3

Wood Delivery – Flooring deliveries within Connecticut and the surrounding areas are done via Housatonic Harwoods and a private delivery company. Depending on the size of the order the trucking company will use a 16′ box truck, 24′ box truck, 28′ trailer, or a 45′ trailer. Deliveries outside the Connecticut area are done via common carrier.

4

Wood Installation – Flooring must be brought to job site at least 48 hours before start of laying to allow for moisture equalization. For good atmospheric exposure, spread unopened bundles around in the room where flooring is to be installed. In new construction, the house must be completely closed in. During the heating season, the heating system must be operated for at least two weeks before flooring is laid.
