Our LIFE-Solid engineered wood floors provide unsurpassed stability without sacrificing the beauty or quality of real wood flooring. The sawn face produces both the exact same visual as a solid piece of wood flooring and necessary thickness to sand and refinish if ever desired. The engineered construction provides the stability to create our unique visuals on a wider canvas. While our collections and individual products are named to reflect the heritage and history of our home state of Georgia, our floors can be used wherever life takes you.
L – Lifetime Finish: Our lifetime finish warranty provides peace of mind in knowing you’ve selected a floor that is quality built and will stand up to years of use. We utilize a 7-layer proprietary finish process with Aluminum Oxide for increased wear resistance and a stain and scratch resistant Nano Technology top coat for lasting beauty.
I – Installation Options: The 1/2” thick-engineered construction allows you to install our floors on, above or below grade. The alternating 8-ply construction provides increased dimensional stability, less expansion and contraction which all equal worry-free installations. Our products can be glued, stapled or floated.
F – Fashion Forward: Our flooring features leading edge visuals, texture and color with a commitment to quality and individuality. Combining these features with wide width planks and longer length boards gives you an aesthetically pleasing visual in traditional to rustic decors.
E – Environmentally Friendly: Our production process and species selections all focus on sustainability. We only use non-endangered woods and are producing 4 to 5 times more flooring out of the same lumber normally used to produce one piece of ¾” solid hardwood flooring. Furthermore, our flooring products comply with CARB Phase 2 and have been certified under FloorScore® and GREENGUARD Gold standards.
Blue Ridge Brushed offers products with subtle texture while maintaining a smooth appearance. Our wire brushing process removes the soft grain leaving a harder surface with a seasoned appearance. This finish style provides a more durable floor that is able to weather your family’s demanding lifestyle.
Hiawassee Hand Scraped provides an old-time warmth from a rustic timeworn look with the benefits of the durability of modern finish. Our options are designed with a subtle scrape to have the look of an older handmade floor that can blend in with any home style. Your active lifestyle will only add to the appearance of these floors through the years.
Savannah Sawn features rustic circular or band sawn effects that bring back the historic visual of floors produced from rough cut sawmill lumber while still having a smooth overall feel. The grain and knots are accentuated by this saw-cut distressing to create a versatile aged visual for your home.
Engineered wood flooring consists of multiple layers of a plywood core, cross-layered with a hardwood veneer bonded to the top. The multi-layer and cross-layering produces a dimensionally stable product while still providing a real hardwood floor.
Engineered wood flooring is very versatile in terms of installation - most can be stapled, glued or floated. In addition, they can be installed over concrete slabs and below grade with proper preparation and adhesive.
Sawn Faced is indistinguishable from a solid wood floor. The lumber is sawn into the desired thickness and ready for application to the engineered construction. Sawn veneers provide the best visual appeal and the strongest grain structure due to the natural sawing process.
The sawn face process will produce 4 to 5 times more flooring out of the same lumber used to produce one piece of ¾” solid hardwood flooring. Additionally, you may sand and finish our sawn face flooring should you desire.
Logs are processed and put onto a large wood lathe. The wood veneers are then peeled off the logs in long strips, like paper that comes off of a roll of paper towels. The rotary cut shows dramatic wider graining, also known as “cathedral” graining. Rotary peeled veneers offer the maximum use of raw materials for the lowest cost.
Solid flooring, as the name suggests, is where each plank is made of a solid piece of wood-- typically milled to ¾” thickness. It is either unfinished (stain & finish on site) or prefinished into beautiful options of visuals. Solid flooring comes in a variety of widths and can be re-sanded and refinished multiple times over the life of the floor.

One of the hardest domestic species, hickory is known for its wide range of color variation and character.
You can expect variation - white/blonde tones in the sapwood ranging to dark chocolate browns in the heartwood. The extreme variation in the floor makes hickory a great character rich option.
