American Exotic Hardwood Flooring

   The preferred flooring material for centuries has stood the test of time by virtue of its inherent durability and beauty. Hardwood is also easy to maintain and offers many health benefits as it does not accumulate dust mites or mold, which serve as irritants to those with allergies and can cause chronic illness. Our exotic hardwood flooring line includes many of the most popular and beautiful hardwoods. Our exotic line contains only the highest quality hardwoods.

 

   Environmental concerns are as important to us as the quality of our product itself. It is important for consumers to be sure that the businesses they purchase hardwood products from utilize Sustainable Harvesting Practices. Our products are green and environmentally friendly. Hardwood is also a sustainable resource, with timber added through new growth and replanting nearly doubling that which is harvested.

 

   In addition to being an environmentally sustainable choice, our exotic line features some of the most durable woods in the industry. Many exotic species also feature other mechanical benefits, such as heightened resistance to decay and insects, when compared to domestic species.  Beyond hardness and durability, our exotic line contains some of the most beautiful woods in the world. From the shimmering highlights of tiger maple p to the rich browns of Black Walnut, these products provide a full range of styles, accents, and color combinations that can serve as perfect decorative complements or as centerpieces unto themselves. This is why interior designers, contractors and homeowners looking to express their personal style choose American Exotic flooring.
