Everyone loves the classic look of a luxurious hardwood floor, but many people feel like the cost of installing a new floor is too high. Floor Country Canada is here to tell you that is not necessarily true. We offer a wide variety of hardwood floors for nearly any budget. There is no good reason to avoid installing hardwood floors, because they have a wide variety of both practical and aesthetic benefits:

• They add a touch of class. Hardwood floors make any room more elegant. The beauty of wood will never look tacky or outdated, and they improve a room’s acoustics.
• It adds value to your home. Hardwood floors are increasingly popular these days, and adding hardwood to your home will impress buyers and increase the price you will be able to get if you ever choose to resell.
• Hardwood is incredibly easy to clean, and is low maintenance. A quick vacuum or sweep, followed by a little mopping using a hardwood spray cleaner, and your floors will be sparkling. And best of all, they don’t trap dirt, dust, and allergens like carpets do, so you don’t need to worry about having those things lingering in your home.
• High quality hardwood is extremely durable. There are many hundred-year-old houses in this country that still have their original hardwood floors, and they still look great. Unlike other flooring options that need to be replaced when they start to wear out, hardwood can just be refinished.
The classic, elegant look of hardwood is being chosen more and more often by homeowners in Winnipeg and for good reason. It is strong, beautiful, and with just a little care will last for the life of your home.

Exotic Hardwood Flooring
We’ve all had the experience of walking into someone’s home and being wowed. Something about their home sets it apart, gives it a unique look that seems impossible to recreate in your own home. But all it takes to achieve that effect is installing exotic hardwood flooring.

Exotic Hardwoods are species found more in the tropical areas. They are harder and denser than domestic wood and are considered to have a more striking appearance, giving off a more contemporary/modern look and making your flooring the centerpiece in any room.

Bazilian Cherry known as Jatoba, Brazilian Teak known as Cumaru, Tigerwood, Sucupira, Tauari and Rose Gaboty, all have a unique and distinctive looks that cannot be replicated by any domestic wood. These species exhibit vibrant colors from fiery reds to deep browns, offer dramatic contrasting stripes, and display wide, rich grains.

If you have thought about exotic hardwood flooring in your home, you are on the right track to a beautiful, elegant floor that will garner many looks from your friends and family.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring
No one can deny the appeal of a hardwood floor, but not every room is suitable for traditional solid wood floors. That’s where the beauty of engineered hardwood comes into play. Engineered hardwood construction has durable, high-performance qualities. Its advantage over solid hardwood is that its construction allows for installation in most grade levels of the home, including below ground with a protective moisture barrier being installed. Engineered hardwood floors are made up of layers. The top layer is natural wood, which comes in a variety of species such as red oak, maple, ash, birch or hickory. The bottom layer is also wood. In the middle is a core built from 5 to 12 layers of plywood, each layer positioned in a different direction. Available in a wide range of boards with many styles, from traditional to modern, from smooth finish to hand scraped, countless stain colors and wood spices, engineered hardwood floors complete any living space.

At Floor Country Canada we have a large selection of Engineered Hardwood to fit your budget and style. Whether you’re looking for a trendy new living room, or for a classic elegance in your kitchen, our professionals are here to help you with your decision.

Pre-Oiled Hardwood Flooring
Many people prefer a less sophisticated wood floor, simpler and more authentic. Pre-oiled hardwood offers just that! A rustic and natural appearance that people just love! The oil allows the wood to keep and enhance its raw aspect, while protecting it. Therefore, you will not see a glossy coating on the floor surface but an oil that penetrates inside for a deep impregnation. The oil allows the wood to keep its beauty longer, which will sure give character to your house. Obtained from plants, the oil is ecologically friendly, so will have no negative effect on your home’s air quality. Maintenance is key in extending the product life cycle of your wood floor. With pre-oiled hardwood floors, a sweep is all you need for its daily cleaning. For a deeper clean use a recommended wood soap with lukewarm water. It is that simple!

In the event of scratches, you just need to lightly sand the surface and reapply a thin layer of the impregnating oil and these scratches will disappear. Your floor will regain its uniform aspect and your scratch will be ancient history.

At Floor Country Canada, we offer a complete line of products including wood soap, concentrated and spray revitalizer, regenerating oil, impregnating oil, finishing oil, stain remover, concentrated and spray cleaner to help you preserve the beauty of your pre-oiled floors.
