North American Hardwood Flooring

For hundreds of years, North American forests have been providing more than 20 different species of hardwoods, perfect for flooring, furniture, cabinetry and more. Species distribution varies by region and each type requires a particular set of conditions to thrive. This includes everything from specific types of soil and nutrients to certain amounts of moisture, warmth, sunlight or shade.

More than half of all American hardwoods are Oak. However, American hardwood forests have also provided many other species suitable for flooring and cabinetry, including Maple, Ash and Birch. to date, eco-inspired designs have utilized hardwoods as a natural, renewable resource well.

If you're looking for some "green" hardwood flooring, look no further than Floors for Less. What makes our North American Hardwood so green? Managed forests, about 95% of all our forests, generate 4 times the oxygen and clean up 4 times the carbon dioxide as does old growth forests. These are the active growing trees that keep our air clean and fresh! The replacement cycle is 30 to 50 years depending on the species and purpose, but forests managed in the USA are sustainable. We even export wood without loosing any acreage. There is plenty of wood!

One of the newest benchmarks is distance raw materials travel to consumers homes. What can be better than Wisconsin hardwood flooring...local product, local labor and very competitively priced! Stop by our showroom today and let us help you get started on your next home improvement project!
