New hot list items!

 

We're big fans of these Canadian hardwoods! Our feature Northern Solid Sawn Collection is 100% made at the iconic Vintage mill in Toronto. 

These products are considered lifetime floors because they have a life span of over 100 years!

In addition to giving the ultimate performance, the classic neutral blends and premium matte finish are exceptional.

LEVELLING | FOUNDATION FOR SUCCESS

We are usually drawn to the beauty and aesthetic of a floor but the reality is, true enjoyment of a floor comes from how well it performs. To this extent, a properly levelled substrate is the best indicator of the sustainability and survival of your flooring investment. 

To set yourself up for success, ensure that your substrate is clean, dry, sound, & flat. Doing so will ensure your flooring boards will have the right foundation to stay aligned and together. 

Many flooring manufacturers also specify moisture and levelling expectations that must be met in order for warranties to be valid. Doing your homework and taking the proper due diligence with the installation of your floor will help you avoid heart ache and unforeseen expenses. 

Here are some additional resources that may prove useful as you move forward on your flooring journey.
