Home Design Inspiration: Custom Parquet with Border

Our job supervisor Anthony and his crew installed this custom parquet style flooring using 3/4″ x 4″ rift sawn white oak with an American walnut border. This customer has a three story foyer, so this custom flooring created a dramatic entrance to their center hall colonial-style home.

The flooring was installed unfinished and site-finished by our refinishing crew.

Check out this slideshow to the progress of the installation and finishing.

Home Inspiration: Ocean City Natural

Last week, our job supervisor Jimmy and his crew took a trip to Ocean City, NJ, to install Mercier Pro Series 3/8″ x 3 1/4″ engineered maple flooring in “natural.” We often recommend engineered wood flooring for beach homes, since it’s adaptable to beach climates.

We also love installing at the Jersey shore, since we get to enjoy the beautiful scenery and even make some new friends.

Before you wrap up your summer at the shore, contact us about your beach flooring needs.
