Lifetime of Beauty
To preserve the beauty of your hardwood flooring for a lifetime, all of our pre-finished hardwood flooring is protected by seven layers of UV Cured Polyurethane infused
with Ceramic particles (aluminum oxide) for scratch resistance and gloss retention. The finishes are 100% solids with no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can be harmful
to humans and the environment. The finish is cured instantly by UV lights thus creating a safe yet extremely durable finish. This process provides the highest quality finish
and durability in an environmentally friendly way.
Choosing pre-finished hardwood flooring is a smart choice for the environment. Wood itself is green; it’s a renewable resource with a much lower carbon foot print then
plastics that are found in many carpets and some laminate flooring. Do you or a member of your family suffer from allergies? Prefinished hardwood floors are hypoallergenic.
