At Smith Brothers Flooring, we are very proud of the strategic partnerships that help us to best serve all of our clients throughout Canada. We love to partner with companies that align with your mission, vision, and values.
Appalachian is a team of c committed to producing the best prefinished solid hardwood and engineered hardwood flooring options available on the market today. When making your floor complete, the team at Appalachian hand selects only the finest planks from the best choice-grade hardwood around.
The team at Appalachian deals with domestic, North American, and exotic imported hardwood species from Brazil to give each and every client a wide variety of flooring options to choose from. Each and every finished hardwood floor from Appalachian is milled either in Canada and the U.S., and their eye-catching selection of colors and grades is sure to astound.
One of the many reasons we love working with Appalachian Flooring is their steadfast commitment to environmentally friendly business practices. With an eye towards being more environmentally conscious, Appalachian’s manufacturing process is purposely designed to minimize production waste and, most importantly, conserve valuable hardwood species for generations to come.
Additionally, the team at Appalachian transforms wood residue into energy that is then used to kiln dry all green lumber. Appalachian is also in full compliance with the Lacey Act, which prohibits the importation of illegally harvested wood or wood products.
Appalachian has also patented their own revolutionary wood finishing technique, known as Evershine. This technique significantly improves both the beauty and resilience of their hardwood floors. Evershine gives Appalachian’s flooring options the capacity to retain their gloss while resisting wear-through. Overall, Evershine finished wood products will stay looking better for longer than other options.
While there are many other finishes that claim superior wear resistance, Evershine consistently outperforms these alternatives. This is largely because they rely on an abrasion-resistant layer applied under the topcoat. This technique leaves the top layer more susceptible to wear and tear over the years, which can result in your floor becoming much duller in areas with high levels of traffic.
On the contrary, Evershine finish includes abrasion-resistant aluminum oxide particles in the very top layer, which is much more effective in protecting the original appearance of your solid hardwood floor. Evershine finish also comes with seven coats of UV cured polyurethane and an impressive 35-year warranty on wear-through.
At Smith Brothers Flooring, we recognize that relationships with companies like Appalachian Flooring only allow us to serve our clients that much more effectively and efficiently.
