Discount Hardwood Flooring
Get Your Discount Hardwood Flooring at Floors to Your Home
What makes a classic? Is it timeless appeal, consistent quality, or is it the ability to transcend fads and maintain its character? For wood floors, the answer is all three. The beauty of hardwood flooring is as varied as the trees it's derived from; a veritable bounty of colors and patterns can be counted on to add pop to any interior design plan. Floors To Your Home offers a lovely selection of discount hardwoods with rich burls, lush grain patterns, and colors ranging from the palest champagne to the darkest ebony. The possibilities begin with your imagination!
Floors To Your Home features a great selection of discounted domestic and exotic hardwoods. Both varieties are perennial favorites, from the common and beloved white oak to the highly sought after teak and mahogany. We include both first quality and cabin grade options.
A solid hardwood floor plank, as the name suggests, is made from a single piece of wood, while engineered flooring is composed of layers. The top layer will be visible on installation, while the bottom layers provide stability. Another great thing about wood flooring is the variety of installation options. Many of our hardwoods feature tongue and groove construction, while others click together just like our laminate or vinyl plank flooring. Same easy installation, same great discounts!
There's no need to shy away from wood in homes where scratching and impact damage is a concern. Modern hardwood floors are protected by a transparent aluminum oxide or polyurethane coating to prevent damage.
What's the Best Option For You?
The two most important factors in picking a wood species are strength and aesthetic. If your flooring is going to be installed in a high-traffic area, it makes sense to look into selections known for their durability. The Janka Hardness Scale is the industry standard; it's readily available for consultation and offers a concise, easy to understand measurement.
After narrowing down the species options based on your needs, then you can move onto getting the flooring look you want. Different hardwood species from all over the world showcase the true spectrum of nature's diversity, providing a huge array of colors, grain patterns, and contrast levels between the grain and the wood itself. We pride ourselves on offering our customers an unmatched selection of hardwood species and styles to ensure the perfect discount flooring match for everyone.
All hardwood is measured using the Janka Hardness Scale to determine its strength and density. The pressure it requires to imbed a steel ball half of its diameter deep into a piece of wood provides the Janka rating. Pine is one of the most common sources of North American wood and merits a 650 on the Janka scale. It can make an absolutely stunning floor, especially for those in search of a quaint, rustic look, but its softer constitution makes it more susceptible to dents and scratches.
Oak is known for being the hardest domestic wood on the market today. Red Oak is considered to be the benchmark for average hardness in a wood floor and carries a 1200 Janka rating, while its cousin White Oak carries a Janka rating of 1350. Both Red and White Oak hardwoods make classic, elegant floors that can last for years to come.

Discount Hardwood Flooring and the Environment
As global citizens, it's our responsibility to take an active interest in preserving our natural resources. That's why we only purchase and sell hardwood flooring that meets the high standards set out by the Lacey Act of 1900, a landmark piece of environmental legislation that has been amended over the past 100 years to reflect the changing times. Under this law, it is "unlawful to import, export, sell, acquire, or purchase fish, wildlife or plants that are taken, possessed, transported, or sold: 1) in violation of U.S. or Indian law, or 2) in interstate or foreign commerce involving any fish, wildlife, or plants taken possessed or sold in violation of State or foreign law." Just like we don't take any shortcuts when it comes to discounts, we don't take any shortcuts when it comes to sustainable flooring.
The vast majority of our wood is grown and manufactured right here in the United States and rigorously conforms to the Lacey Act. The small percentage that originates in China comes from non-endangered, non-threatened birch trees and also adheres to these specifications. All nondomestic materials are measured against the same standards as their American counterparts. When you buy discount hardwood flooring from Floors To Your Home, your environmental conscience can rest easy knowing you support safe, renewable sources.
Picking The Right Discount Hardwood Flooring For You
Both types of discount flooring confer a different set of benefits to your home. Solid hardwood floors are the only type of floors on the market today that are actually proven to increase a home's selling price. Why? Because solid hardwood floor can, with proper care and maintenance, last for a generation or more. It's also the only flooring material that can be re-finished. All it takes is some sanding, the stain color of your choice, and voila! This type of discount hardwood flooring can be installed on wood subfloors, and should always be installed above grade to prevent complications from moisture, humidity, and temperature fluctuations.
Because its additional layers lend extra sturdiness to its construction, engineered hardwood flooring is more versatile than solid in terms of where it can be installed. It also tends to be lower in cost. Frequently engineered wood floors are also stronger and less responsive to the environment, so climate factors such as moisture and temperature will present fewer issues. Engineered wood flooring can be installed over concrete, and can also be installed on, above, or below grade.
Both solid and engineered hardwood flooring are available in a wide range of finish options. A hand scraped surface provides a more characterful rustic look, while nothing says timeless beauty like a smooth finish.Whatever your preference, the trained experts at Floors To Your Home are standing by to help you select your dream discount hardwood flooring!
