Wood and Laminate Finishes

Wood and Laminate Finishes



Low sheen, lightly brushed finish that enhances the natural characteristics of the wood. It masks dust buildup and footprints, and resists the wear & tear caused by active families and high traffic.


A slightly higher sheen than Nature Finish, Smooth Finish highlights the natural warmth of the wood, providing a traditional, sophisticated look.


This texture, which accentuates the natural grain, is crafted by lightly scraping the finish with a wire brush, creating long, linear strokes that expose a more open grain and bring out the wood's natural character.


Hand Scraped surface textures evoke craftsmanship, and appear random and natural. The board surfaces are scraped to give a hand-hewn, rustic look that adds warmth and a cozy, lived-in feel.


Reminiscent of original barn board, our Band Sawn finish is achieved with a precision sawing method that creates a varied, worn effect that can complement any décor scheme, ultra-modern to traditional.



An embossing process perfectly follows the grain of the wood image, recreating the most authentic embossed wood look.


Two different sheen levels of finish are used during the embossing process, flawlessly replicating the depth and dimensions of real wood flooring.


An antiqued, hand-scraped appearance is given to the floor, reflecting the vintage styling of long ago, yet undeniably fashion-forward.

If properly cared for, a premium solid hardwood floor can last for over a century. Manufactured from a single solid piece of wood, solid wood flooring can be professionally sanded and refinished several times during its life. Ideal above or on grade (main floor), but not below (basement.)


100% real wood with greater usage options, and superior stability (very little movement) through Canada's trying seasonal humidity fluctuations. Made from a core of real wood, and a top layer of hardwood wear layer glued atop the core. Can be installed on, above or below grade in existing and new home construction.


Cost-effective, versatile and prized for its aesthetic impact, Laminate flooring is made by pressing multiple layers of resin/melamine-impregnated paper on top of and below high density fiberboard (HDF). The top surface is a transparent overlay, which creates a strong, damage-resistant surface that protects the decorative layer beneath.

More scratch resistant than real wood, Satin Flooring High Performance Laminate can be used anywhere, even bathrooms. And because it clicks together board-by-board, single boards are easily replaced.


A technologically advanced, fashion-forward floor that combines the superior durability and solidity of engineered hardwood with a floating feature, similar to laminate, that lets you install them on any subfloor. A patented "click" design with self-locking joints makes them literally a snap to install. Made with a super-strong, recycled HDF (high density fiberboard) core.

Advancements in flooring materials have allowed for the development of strong, easy to install, stable and durable flooring products. Engineered hardwood flooring is an excellent alternative to traditional hardwood floors.
