We only deal with finishes that are 100% safe containing 0% VOCs (Volatile organic compounds), and no toxins. So it's safe for the whole family, guaranteed.
It also pays for itself, some of the top surfaces can be renewed by using special soaps and can be renewed number of times with tops that can be resanded to change out color.
The smooth surface has no grooves, no crevice notches, making maintenance so much easier. We also use a special glue that makes flooring come with acoustical sound proofing benefits.

There are only 3 common types of hardwoods
1. Prefinished Engineered hardwood flooring is made with a piece of lumber gets milled and placed on top of designed tongue and groove criss cross ply showcasing the hardwood on the top. This is a one time use and is nonrenewable or unsandable due to its thin top layer.
2. Pre-Finished or Unfinished Solid hardwood flooring is made when a piece of lumber gets milled already as is with the tongue and groove and no criss-cross ply in its base. These planks are renewable, and sandable up to about 5 times. Solids however can be unstable if installed on concrete foundations and are meant to be nailed on peer and beam.
3. Unfinished Engineered hardwood flooring is unfinishied engineered product that has an unfinished top. This thick top of real hardwood is just as thick like solid wood and can be stained and finished onsite. This type of wood floor is also renewable and can be resurfaced up to 5 times. This type of flooring combines the benifits of solid real hardwoods and the stability of engineered. We offer a unique commercial grade 0% VOC system with this type of floor.
