Nestled in the beautiful countryside of south-central Kentucky is the headquarters of a premier manufacturer of solid and engineered hardwood flooring. Harvesting wood from the Appalachian timerlands, Somerset products are of the highest quality, and the variety and selections the company offers will inspire anyone looking to make an investment of hardwood flooring. And if the highest quality weren't enough, Somerset is also committed to the highest standards of sustainability. From start to finish, Somerset gets the job done with excellence and integrity.
Somerset has earned Forest Stewardship Council Chain of Custody Certification and manufactures FSC-certified flooring by special order. The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) provides third-party certification confirming that materials used are harvested from well-managed forests. Somerset is so committed to protection of forests they have a full-time forestry staff dedicated to keeping the company held to the highest standard of environmental consciousness. In addition, all the sawdust generated by Somerset processing the wood materials is used to provide heat and steam to fuel their manufacturing operations or is made into wood fuel pellets, also sold under the Somerset name. This means not only are they using sustainable raw materials, but any left overs don't end up in the landfill.
But we were talking about their flooring products. When you're ready to shop, Somerset will amaze you with their array of choices and features. You will find both engineered and solid wood flooring. The majority of their lines of hardwoods include Appalachian oak, maple, hickory, and cherry, but they also offer a dynamic collection of imported exotic species whose natural contrasting graining and unique designs can bring a dramatic look to any room.
And not only can you choose from a variety of species, you can also narrow your search to products that have specific features, such as handscraping, high-gloss, or distressing, and the planks come in different widths, from standard 3 ½-inch up to 5 inches, to allow you to individualize your look and feel.
Somerset should be your front-runner when deciding on your new hardwood floor. They represent quality, beauty, and individuality…with a conscience.
