Anderson Hardwood Floors Review
When you are searching for a reputable hardwood flooring company that has floors that will stand the test of time, there are many to choose from. From companies like BellaWood to Virginia Mills Works, the choices can be daunting. In this article, I am going to go over a company that has been receiving accolades from all over...Anderson Hardwood Floors.
Anderson Hardwood Flooring...what make Anderson so Special?
If you are looking at laying floors, you have to worry about a bazillion things. As my hardwood guy told me, it isn't like shopping for steak. You have to think about a lot of things when choosing hardwood for your house. Do you have kids and pets? How often will people be on the floors (is it in a high traffic place?) Do you intend to throw rugs and runners on it? (some floors will darken with natural light) Most people worry about the look of the hardwood (which any wood can be stained to fit your style) rather than look at things like hardness and durability of the wood. Some will factor in the pricing of the hardwood as though it would mean that the more expensive it is, the higher the quality.
Anderson hardwood floors have been in business since 1946 and are largely a family affair meaning that the business gets passed down from generation to generation. Because of this, when you talk to an Anderson, you can rest assure that you are talking to someone who knows his or her way around flooring.
Anderson Wood Flooring comes in a variety of selections ranging from the currently popular and eco-friendly bamboo hardwood to oak, pine and even pecan. Much of the hardwood that they have is hand scraped meaning that it has the look and feel of being antique wood because they raise the grain.
Hardwood Flooring From Anderson
Anderson Wood Flooring...what they suggest
Most of the hardwood from the Anderson family is engineered flooring because the Andersons believe that this type of flooring is the most flexible and durable out there. In fact, the 5 ply construction, which is an industry standard, was designed and developed by its founder. The secret behind this is the construction: It alternates the grain of the wood which in turn makes the wood itself almost as strong as steel all the while producing less waste.
Another bonus that comes from buying Anderson Hardwood is that they were the first to develop a solution to waxing your hardwood, called freedom finish. This finish is environmentally friendly and works to fill in the cracks and pores of the wood.
The Anderson's have over 60 years of experience with laying hardwood floors in homes and businesses and have received accolades from those who have had the benefit of beautiful Anderson Hardwood flooring in their homes.
