Hickory Flooring GalleryHickory sample board


The heaviest of American hardwoods, it holds nails and screws well. The wood can be sanded to a good finish. The grain pattern welcomes a full range of medium-to-dark finishes and bleaching treatments. Its name is an English contraction of the Native American "powcohicora."

In Eastern North America, it survived the catastrophic changes of the Glacial Epoch, some 50 million years ago. Thus, it is the first strictly American hardwood species. Westward trekking pioneers made hickory a prerequisite for their wagon wheels.

… I swear, they look amazing. Everyone comments how good they look. The installers said they enjoyed installing them because the wood had so much character.
We are very pleased with how everything worked out. You guys
kept me in the loop the entire way through - now if all the other companies would have done that through this building process I would have less gray hair.
We have told several people about you guys. Don't change a thing, I was very happy with how everything went!

“..a litany of superlatives could only describe the character...short of boring you with well deserved praise I think that the word “outstanding!" probably says it best....you guys are too much!..”
