Anderson Flooring Review
Anderson Flooring has been around since 1946 and according to it's website, has been making quality hardwood floor that would be considered upper end as far as wood goes. The family has been doing it for generations and they are responsible for several patents that have revolutionalized flooring, such as their patented 5-ply construction which was developed and created by the founder of the company and is now an industry standard. Thanks to this innovation, the 5-ply construction makes their engineered wood up to 100% stronger than traditional solid wood and more durable to boot.
Another innovation that the Anderson's created was the first "no-wax" floor with the freedom finish, an environmentally friendly solution to cleaning your wood floors.
Because of this, Anderson Flooring specializes primarily in engineered hardwood and focuses on the darker stained wood as well as the high end distressed, hand scraped planks available in the wider plank layout (up to 7 inches) popular today in higher end homes. Their main focus hard wood wise is red oak, pine, hickory, and maple hardwoods although they do have more exotic wood to choose from such as Pecan, Brazillian Hardwood, Rosewood and Patagonia Pecan.
The Anderson's have several different lines of hardwood including the very popular Virginia Vintage which subsequently allows you to choose varying plank widths of three, five and seven inch. This is a very rare benefit and most hardwood companies don't offer such when it comes to prefinished flooring . The Virginia Vintage collection is available in solid and engineered hardwood. Other Anderson collections include:
- Cimmaron Collection
- Classic Hickory
- Coastal Art
- Desert Hickory
- Exotic Collection
- and many others....
Anderson Flooring is environmentally friendly
