Product Review: Bruce Hardwood Flooring

Posted: Tuesday, March 08, 2011

You just can't go wrong with hardwood flooring with its timeless beauty and charm. It's also, thanks to specialized finishes and coatings, not the maintenance challenge you might have come think. Its ability to add value to a home or business makes hardwood floors the way to go. And if you're ready to go on your flooring project, Bruce hardwood flooring is as far as you need to look.

Bruce offers a stunning array of choices in hardwood flooring. From narrow to wide planks, from rustic, hand-scraped styles, to luxuriously smooth and glossy. You can also choose from several different species, each with its own unique striations and patterns.

Bruce has flooring in Ash, Pecan, Cherry, Basswood, Maple, as well as Exotics, just to name a few. And the color range is amazing. Bruce provides colors that range from blond to natural brown dark and warm tones, to reds and even multicolor. There's certainly a color choice that will be the perfect complement to your new or remodeled room. Bruce has a fabulous tool on their website that can even help you walk through designing your room with step by step ideas and suggestions.

You might be curious about the "Good," "Better," and "Best" ratings for Bruce hardwoods. This does not imply any lacking in quality or durability — it simply refers to how "rustic" you want your floors to look.

A "Good" rated floor indicates that the planking with have a greater number of pinholes, natural imperfections, or knots, which is really why some people want to install a hardwood floor in the first place. Up at the "Best" ranking, you'll see much less natural variation, and the floors will be a bit more uniform, although with any natural product, you'll have some differences from section to section. So don't let that moniker throw you off.

To maintain hardwoods, one of your best gatekeepers (literally!) are rugs, simple mats that go in front of doors that open to the outside. They catch debris and dirt that inevitably adhere to people's shoes. In the event that a rock stuck in someone's shoe does get up close and personal with your hardwood floor, Bruce offers a variety of care and maintenance products that can help repair a scratch or dent with ease.

Enjoy the grace and warmth of your Bruce hardwood floor, and let it be a testament to the care you give to your home or office.
