Solid hardwood flooring is a timelessly classic choice for Raleigh area homes and commercial spaces. Tri Point Flooring’s hardwood planks are skillfully crafted using 100% solid wood, stained, and finished to suit your design aesthetic and lifestyle. As our customer reviews reflect, we provide expert customer care from the start of your project through years of your floor’s durability.
Solid hardwood floors endure through decades and even centuries of wear and tear because of how they are made. The planks are milled from one piece of kiln or air-dried timber cut to the desired dimensions. Either the factory finishes the wood planks or they ship to the installers to finish on site at your home or commercial space. All of this craftsmanship takes place in a controlled environment to protect the wood from warping and bending.
Quality manufacturing is only the first part of your floors’ journey to completion. Expert installation plays a major role in how your finished floors look, feel and last. Tri Point Flooring employs highly experienced installers who understand the value of proper execution in placement of each plank. This is why we proudly offer a one-year labor warranty to back up our work.
Obviously, this care and skill mean that solid hardwood floors cost more upfront than engineered hardwoods or luxury vinyl planks. But the end result proves timeless, never going out of style and always adding value to your property. In fact, hardwoods typically enhance property resale price by more than their cost.
If you have pre-existing flooring, such as carpet, vinyl or tile, our installers first remove those surfaces for you. Then we place your gorgeous new hardwoods with the skill and attention to detail that only our professionals provide.
Solid hardwood flooring does not limit you to one look or color, as seen in trends people followed during the past century. Today’s hardwoods provide a broad array of options for colors, styles, finishes, plank sizes and wood species. We help you select the right flooring for your home or commercial space. We base this advice on the local climate, expected traffic and your desired overall look. Although oak remains top of the list for many property owners, other people prefer bamboo, mahogany, ash, pine or other options.
Factors involved in helping you choose the right solid hardwood flooring include durability and who uses the floor on a daily basis. For example, families with young children and pets put strength and scratch-resistance at the top of their list. Others with less traffic can consider softer woods without concern for excessive wear and tear. Throughout your decision-making process, our expert consultants help you find the right products based on visual appeal and your budget, too.
Most home and commercial property owners are stunned to learn of the sheer variety of solid hardwoods available for flooring. In fact, you have access to a multitude of hardwoods, softwoods, domestics and imports through Tri Point Flooring. Each type provides its own benefits and special considerations for care or maintenance. Overall, your best choice is a wood that is widely available, suits your budget and fulfills your design taste. You must also ensure it provides the durability required to stand up to decades of the traffic your spaces impose.
The most common wood used for solid hardwood floors include:
Whichever type of wood you choose can affect the overall atmosphere of your space. Light woods like ash and maple tend to make rooms feel more open and airy, while medium woods like oak and hickory add coziness and warmth. Dark woods, such as walnut and mahogany, add an air of refinement and tradition.
Less widely available species work great for upscale and low-traffic properties. Although exotics like teak, mesquite and jarrah look incredible, they do not always suit the needs of today’s home or commercial property owners. But you can still achieve a similar look through more widely available woods, such as oak. We are happy to show you how, by giving special consideration to the floors’ plank size, color and finish.
Tri Point Flooring’s expert installers can finish your floors on-site or we can order factory-finished woods. We help you decide on the best option according to each method’s pros and cons. For example, on-site finishing takes more time during installation and creates some noise and dust. Factory finishing limits your customization options but makes installation much quicker and easier.
You also have options for your wood finishes. If you prefer a shiny appearance, choose gloss finish that reflects more light. For just a bit of shine, semi-gloss cuts down on glare and reflection but still looks clean and fresh. A satin or matte finish reflects even less light, but provides the benefit of reduced appearance of wear and scratches. All of these finishes provide the same floor protection, so you only need to make the choice according to the overall look you want to achieve.
