From dance floors, to musical instruments, to cutting boards, this specialty wood is used for the sturdiest of occasions. Known for its strength and stability, according to the Janka Hardness Scale, maple hardwood has a rating of 1450, which places it above other well known flooring alternatives, such as oak and ash. This lumber is native to the states and can be found across our nation, making it quite popular and easily obtainable. The specialists of Floor Coverings International of Charleston recommend this option for those in need of a wallet friendly and natural looking floor.


Maple offers a subtle grain design that compliments immense open spaces in any home or facility with its natural, light finish. More often than not, the grain is quite strait with a fine and even texture. It has an impressive durability about it that makes it perfect for high traffic spots, such as hallways and dining rooms. Maple timber is less porous than oak, making it more resistant to dents and scratches. Its natural tone and longevity make it appropriate for various living situations.


Maple is ideal for those interested in a low maintenance flooring alternative. By taking immediate action when spills or messes occur, you can prevent your floor from damages, such as warping or staining. Maintaining simple cleaning habits will ensure a long, beautiful life for your maple hardwood floor.
