It all begins with the floor

Whether you have an older home you want to restore to its former glory, or a modern house that you want to give that extra touch of style and elegance — it begins with your choice of flooring.  With a properly chosen and well laid floor, you have the start of something special. 

Our installation process is comprehensive, guiding you through everything from deciding which floor makes the most sense for you based on desired aesthetic, available budget, and lifestyle needs, through to ordering high quality materials from one of the many mills and suppliers we have great working relationships with, down to the professional and high quality installation itself. 

Getting hardwood floors properly installed doesn't just mean getting them laid down. There are many considerations where our extensive installation experience is key such as proper measuring of square footages and minimizing waste wood, complexity of angles and custom cuts, volume of foot traffic, the condition of the sub-floor and required repairs, checking moisture levels, eliminating squeaks and providing those added touches such as stair treads and risers, transitions and borders and forced-air vent registers. 

Getting the right floor means getting the right people to do the job, and we have the skills, the knowledge, the experience, and the passion to ensure your flooring project goes smoothly from start to finish. 

Solid Hardwood

Solid hardwood not only increases the value of your home, but enhances the elegance and warmth of your surroundings that is incomparable underfoot.  It’s a versatile option for any room, and is capable of producing a variety of interior style designs, from a sleek and modern vibe, or a beach house feel, to a more rustic charm, all while remaining durable and comfortable.

There are an array of wood species used in hardwood flooring locally and many Victoria area homes already enjoy classic hardwood installed during the mid or turn of the century.  From the pink hues of Red Oak to it's blonder cousin White Oak, this wood comes in a variety of gran patterns and is a common mid-century floor which offers durability like no other.  And although not technically a hardwood, Fir flooring is actually a soft wood by definition, prized for its deep amber colour and warm, elegant appeal.  Fir is typically found in many of those character, craftsman and heritage homes we have come to love around Victoria. Other varieties of hardwood common in our region include Maple, Birch and Alder, which are all durable and an ideal choice for high traffic areas.

Engineered Hardwood

In some instances, solid hardwood won’t be the best option, especially when it’s in an area of your home that is susceptible to high levels of moisture. When that’s the case, engineered hardwood is a stylish and practical alternative for homeowners looking for the elegance that hardwood floors bring into every home. 

Manufactured with strong and tightly packed layers, engineered hardwood floors are a wonderful choice for spaces with a concrete sub-floor such as basements or for those who are looking for wide plank options.

You don’t have to compromise on aesthetics or style, as engineered boards are available in most of the popular solid hardwood varieties. Plus, they are durable and strong with a variety of pre-finished styles, making them a great option for many houses.

Reclaimed Wood

Reclaimed wood is a great option to match century old floors for repairs in a heritage home or extending mid-century floors found in one part of the house throughout. And with our extensive knowledge of working with Victoria area floors, we are experts at selecting the perfect boards to match your existing wood floors.

One of the biggest advantages of using reclaimed wood is that it is a sustainable way to re-purpose building materials and give them a second life. Working with reclaimed wood is one of our specialties and one of the many ways we are working towards implementing more environmentally practices within our industry.
