Hardwood flooring is a durable and beautiful addition to any room, and, with so many wood species available to our customers, J. Gibson McIlvain is an excellent place to find the hardwood flooring which you need. We provide flooring to many major flooring manufacturers and installers, and this starts with our strict grading process. During our initial sort, which is performed as the lumber first enters the yard, we identify the boards that are perfectly suited for flooring and set them aside to be graded by experts in the industry.
Stability is key to a good flooring species. No matter how beautiful the wood, if it cups and warps after installation, no one will be happy with it. Uncompromising attention to detail when drying our flooring species and careful milling are necessary to ensure that the lumber will arrive at your factory or project site ready to go.
After stability is ensured, we turn our attention to ensuring consistent color and grain patterns, as both are crucial to prevent a mismatched floor. When we pick our lumber for a flooring order we pay careful attention to these elements to help guarantee a beautiful floor.
