, few are as valued as the average 100-year lifespan it has to offer. You'll enjoy the stunning visuals, the outstanding performance, and the durability that helps it reach its full lifespan potential.

If it's durability you're looking for, you're sure to find it in this product line. One of the determining factors in your flooring's lifespan is the species, which ranges from hard to soft.

Some finishes, while beautifully perfect for your décor, also work to protect your floors as well. Hand-scraped or distressed finishes help hide scratches, scuffs, and water spots for a floor covering that look like new longer. Even in heavily traveled spaces, you'll find they last longer when you make the right option choices.

After that, your installation team will work to give you the best looking and best functioning floor possible.
