Hardwood & Laminate



WOOD FLOORING INFORMATION:

Typical Warranties: Different floor types are warranted for different physical aspects, and for different lengths of time.

Life Expectancy: Some floors, such as hardwood and ceramic, may last a lifetime if properly maintained; others such as laminate may last for 15 - 30 years; while others, such as vinyl tile may only last for a few years.

Child & Pet Friendly: Do you have an active household? Some floor types are better than others at standing up to traffic, resisting pet nails and liquid spills, and for cushioning joints and elbows.

Care & Maintenance: Today's floors offer easy maintenance to keep them good-looking over time. Some are easier to care for than others with nothing more than simple vacuuming and mopping, while some require periodic refinishing. Laminate flooring is easiest floor to care for.

Why Wood?

  • Incomparable beauty and uniqueness
  • Wood floors match homes of all ages and styles
  • Increases the value of your home
  • Wood floors are one of the most requested “must haves” from homebuyers
  • Not harmful to the environment. Wood floors are environmentally friendly and recyclable
  • Naturally renewable and biodegradable
Janka Hardness Scale for Wood Flooring Species
The Janka hardness test is a measurement of the force necessary to embed a .444-inch steel ball to half its diameter in wood. It is the industry standard for gauging the ability of various species to tolerate denting and normal wear, and is also a good indicator of how hard a particular wood is to saw or nail. The higher the number, the harder the wood.





LAMINATE FLOORING

In 1990, Witex invented a way of making direct-pressure laminate flooring with a high-density core board. Today, over 70% of the laminate flooring sold around the world is made using the same technique.

Our Mainstay II Collection delivers the outstanding performance of laminate flooring in a value priced selection of traditional designs. The collection provides a host of impressive features and benefits like glueless installation, built-in scratch resistance and moisture resistance.

These floors are also available with our pre-applied Plus Silent Comfort Backing for faster installation and a quieter, softer walk. The Mainstay II Collection features a special surface treatment that adds a textured, wood grain look and feel to the overall floor pattern.
