Hardwood floors have come a long way in the past few years.  There are several styles, colors, and species of hardwood floors to choose from. 

We offer 4 different types of hardwood floors:
Traditional Solid Wood (also known as traditional North American hardwoods)
Exotic Solid Wood (for individuals who desire a more unique looking hardwood floor)
Engineered Wood (installed in areas not suitable for solid wood applications)
Bamboo Wood ("Eco-Friendly" alternative to traditional hardwood flooring)



Refinishing

According to the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) guidelines, 1/32" of the hardwood floor can be minimized each time the floor is sanded. Also, a hardwood floor must have at least 1/32" thick of hardwood layer above the tongue in order to maintain the stability of the tongue and groove joints.
Hardwood Floor Refinishing is a simple way to restore the fresh original appearance of your existing hardwood floor. At Premier Hardwood Flooring , we pride ourselves on our use of the most technologically advanced tools and methods. All wood floors are buffed, tacked, and vacuumed between finish applications, resulting in an evenly finished floor free of imperfections.
Our certified hardwood professionals are trained to identify if your hardwood floor can withstand a sand & refinishing project.

Maintain Hardwood Floor
Now that your hardwood floor has been revitalized and renewed, there are specific protocols to follow in order to guarantee the longevity of your new hardwood floor fininsh: Do not use sheet vinyl or tile floor care products on wood floors. Self-polishing acrylic waxes cause wood to become slippery and appear dull quickly.
Use throw rugs both inside and outside doorways to help prevent grit, dirt and other debris from being tracked onto your wood floors. This will prevent scratching.
Do not wet-mop a wood floor. Standing water can dull the finish, damage the wood and leave a discoloring residue. Wipe up spills immediately with a slightly dampened towel.
Do not over-wax a wood floor. If the floor dulls, try buffing instead. Avoid wax buildup under furniture and other light traffic areas by applying wax in these spots every other waxing session.
Put soft plastic or fabric-faced glides under the legs of furniture to prevent scuffing and scratching.
Avoid walking on your wood floors with cleats, sports shoes and high heels. A 125-pound woman walking in high heels has an impact of 2,000 pounds per square inch. An exposed heel nail from a shoe can exert up to 8,000 pounds per square inch. This kind of impact can dent any floor surface.
When moving heavy furniture, do not slide it on wood flooring. It is best to pick up the furniture completely to protect the wood flooring.
For wood flooring in the kitchen, place an area rug in front of the kitchen sink.
Use a humidifier throughout the winter months to keep wood movement and shrinkage to a minimum.
One of the primary benefits of a hardwood floors is durability. Unlike other types of flooring, hardwood floors can be sanded & refinished in a very cost effective manner. Here are some examples that would prompt you to consider a sand & refinish project:

Scratches (Surface & Deep)
Termites
Spots (Dark & White)
Mold/Mildew
Discolored Wood
Oil & Grease Stains
Pet Stains & Odors
Heel & Shoe Marks

Laminate

The advances of laminate flooring technology has greatly improved over the past few years and its cost effectiveness makes it a top choice amongst homeowners. Laminate flooring has a core comprised of High Density Fiber (HDF). The superficial layer of laminate flooring emulates hardwood, stone or tile.
A key benefit of laminate flooring is the floating installation method. The floating installation method is when the individual planks are locked together but never attached to the subfloor underneath. Laminate hardwood floors have a special tongue and groove locking system that tightly joins the planks or tiles together. This installation system requires no glue, nails or staples and leaves the old floor intact (resulting in a considerable cost savings since removal of your old floor is not necessary).

Carpet

Carpet not only quiets a room but also offers homeowners more warmth and softness to touch than any other flooring product. Advancements in carpet fiber technology are making carpets softer and more stain-resistant than ever before.

Carpet padding technology has been dramatically been improved as well. Some carpet padding can block liquid spills from penetrating the cushion and soaking into the subfloor while some padding are able to eliminate odors in your carpet.

Some of the advantages to installing carpet are:
Carpet adds warmth and is soft under feet and easier on children's knees
Carpet is much quieter than hard-surfaced floors
Carpet comes in a wide variety of colors and hues.
Carpet is easy to decorate with and offers many solid color tones for rooms with patterned wall coverings
Carpet can hide many subfloor irregularities that would not be permitted with hard-surfaced floors
Carpet can go on all grade levelss (even concrete sub-floors in basements)
Carpet is very economical and the installation costs are much less than some of the hard-surfaced floor products
