After 40+ years in business, it’s safe to say we have done our fair share of trying new products and various brand names. We have several manufacturers and brands that we use most often, and our proud to put our name on after the project is completed. Box stores or other retailers may carry inferior products that may look nice, but we know we can stand behind the products we carry.
PG Model is one of our more popular prefinished brands, like many others, they offer a variety of solid and engineered wood products. They also carry most domestic wood species’ including Red oak, maple, birch, and now hickory. Check out their website or call us at 763-784-3000 to learn more.
Armstrong is another brand that makes quality products. They manufacture both real wood and laminates.
Somerset is another one of our trusted manufacturers. They offer some products that other manufacturers have trouble matching the look, quality, and availability, specifically the different grades of prefinished white oak and hickory.
Casabella offers an array of wood flooring, including unique handscraped floors that can add a distinguished and personal touch to any home.
Mirage is the brand to look at if you like options. They offer a vast collection of species, grades, colors, and product types.
Kahrs is a Swedish based company specializing in floating floors. They have been producing hardwood floor products for over 100 years. They were founded in 1857 which makes it the oldest wood floor manufacturer that’s still in operation today.
Many box stores carry Luxury Vinyl Planks and Luxury Vinyl Tiles, but many customers find it hard to trust the unknown name brands that sell these products. We carry a number of brands that we trust, so you can rest easy knowing you’ll receive a quality product. Some of these brands include Trends, Armstrong, and Casabella.
In today’s market, there are tons of manufacturers and products that all claim to be the best at what they do, and it can seem impossible to find the ones that actually hold up to their reputation. The brands we use have been chosen after years of real life experience to find the ones that meet our expectations and we can be proud to use in all of our projects.
Pro Coat, or Professional Coatings, is a name we can proudly stand behind. After many years of working together and perfecting the finish we use today, we use Pro coat’s artisan series in essentially all of our oil based applications. They also offer a oil modified water borne product know as H2Oil, which can provide some of that oil based look, without the same degree of odors and longer dry time
When it comes to water based finish, we use one of the biggest names in the hardwood flooring industry. We use Bona’s industry leading Mega, traffic and traffic HD. Bona Mega is the standard, while Traffic is recommended for busier households.
Duraseal is almost strictly the only stain we use. We know it works well with all of our finishes, and is formulated specifically for hardwood floors. They offer a large variety of colors that’s sure to compliment any home. The colors often coincide with minwax colors, so trim or other small staining projects in the future may be easier to match. Not all stains can be used for hardwood floors, you are welcome to find a stain that you absolutely love, but we cannot use gel or wiping stains, only penetrating stains should be used on wood floors.
