Millwood Custom Flooring
(Finish in place, aka nail down)
Solid oak flooring has been popular for over 200 years. Oak is a wonderful material for flooring and extremely hard wearing. Usually ¾” thick in widths from 2.25” to 7” and available in red or white oak, it can be stained in virtually any color, and the finish sheen from satin to gloss. Of course, it can be refinished many times and you can even change colors completely. Oak comes in different grades and can be smooth or handscraped (with the grain, or across the grain). It takes a little longer to install and the areas have to be completely free of furniture for about 10 days. The final stain and polyurethane take a couple of days after the wood has been laid and acclimated. However, for an incredible first-class look to your home there is no better choice.

The most popular choice in moisture-prone areas such as kitchens and bathrooms is porcelain or travertine tile. Unlike the 70’s and 80’s, tile is now normally installed with only 1/16” grout lines and prefinished grout mix which doesn’t change color and contains sealer plus anti-microbial products to avoid dirt and mold. Tile also has a lot of heat-resistant qualities and can be used near fireplaces, furnaces, and other sources of heat. Tile also comes in different types of materials such as ceramic, porcelain, quarry and mosaic. Tile is a beautiful way to incorporate different shapes and designs into your flooring and will improve the look of any area.
