Installing a Border to Accent Your Hardwood Floors

Installing hardwood floor borders can be a unique upgrade to your hardwood floor design. Borders essentially create a framed effect in a particular room or living space. In many cases, a wood flooring border will be a different wood species that is a contrast to the wood appearing in the main area of the room. For example, a dining room with natural white oak hardwood floor, which is a light colored wood, might include a border outlining the room in a contrasting species such as Brazilian cherry, which is a darker species of wood.

When it comes to borders, the possibilities are endless.

    Yes, we can do the subfloor prep as well as the hardwood floor installation and refinishing. We can do minor prep work such as removing carpet staples to major repairs including removing the existing subfloor and installing new plywood.

    We do sell many brands of hardwood floor products. There is a range of different vendors for unfinished hardwood floors and prefinished hardwood floors.

    As for cleaning products we offer, I recommend and sell cleaners from actual finish manufacturers such as Glitsa Clean or Woodwise Floor Cleaner. Avoid wax or oil cleaners like Murphy’s Oil or Orange and Glow.

Thanks for a great job on our floors – they look super.
