Hardwood flooring stands the test of time; it adds a hint of luxury and a lot of character to any space. We carry the top lines of hardwood and are up on all of the current trends in the design industry. Hardwood flooring has evolved over the years to include hand distressed finishes, engineered products, wide plank boards and exotic species.

We have welcomed the introduction of engineered and distressed hardwoods to the market. Engineered hardwood is specifically designed to stand up to humidity fluctuations and has made wide width boards feasible for our dry Alberta climate. Distressed hardwoods are perfect for the active family; they come loaded with character directly from the mill to your home. No need for panic the first time you put a mark on the floor, simply grab a touch up pen because you have added to the hand-distressing and that's how your floor is supposed to look.

We carry an abundance of hardwood samples and have everything from your traditional 2 ¼" width solid hardwood to super-wide plank 7" engineered hardwood. Our design team will help you to select the product that is perfect for your lifestyle and budget. We have expert installation crews that will ensure that your job is completed to the highest standards.
