Grading is differentiated by the amount of knots, mineral streaks and color variation within and between boards. At Demopolis Hardwood, we offer Clear, Select, No. 1 Common and No. 2 Common grades, ranging from the least amount of visible variations to the most, respectively. More color variations and natural characteristics would be best for a high-traffic area to hide any imperfections caused by the high traffic.

This depends on the wear layer of the flooring. The thinner the wear layer, the fewer times the floor should be sanded. For very thin wear layers, flooring should only be sanded once.

Regular daily maintenance includes sweeping with a soft bristle broom or dusting with a dry microfiber mop. Use the vacuum on the bare floor setting weekly, and clean with a recommended wood flooring cleaner monthly.

Because wood flooring is a natural product, it responds to humidity variations by expanding and contracting even after it has been processed and put in place. The best way to reduce movement caused by moisture is to install humidity controls before flooring is installed.

We offer hardwood flooring that caters to any budget. We price by the truckload, or by the quantity of an order itself if it is less than truckload sized. Call us today at 334-289-8686 to learn more!
