    For the last 13 years that Wall to Wall Flooring has been in business, we've had sales come and go. We've had blow out laminate sales, luxury vinyl specials, carpet discounts; and now, we have a killer deal on some beautiful hardwood floors. What's the reason for this sale? Simply put, when we get a deal, you get a deal.

    If you're looking for a hard surface at a reasonable rate, look no further than our current hickory hardwood special. In 4 different colors by 2 different manufacturers, both Naturally Aged Flooring and Maxwoods make fantastic products that are hard to beat at our price point of $2.99 per square foot; and with 2 of the 4 colors being random width, we're offering a deal that turns even the most modern designer's head.

        After doing some research on hickory, I've come to find out that there are 19 different kinds of hickory hardwoods around the world. What takes me by surprise is that with all of these off shoots of one tree, the grain variation embedded in each piece of wood is similar. No matter where it may be from, you can always tell a hickory flooring due to its unique grain design; whether it's the Southern shagbark hickory that grows in limestone soil, or kingnut hickory that grows in wet, bottomland forests; you can always tell hickory hardwood from the rest. 

    Rating at an 1820 on the Janka Hardness scale, this domestic wood species is harder thank oak; making it a product that will last. While hickory may not be impervious to these elements, hickory is resistant to termites, mold, fungus, scratches, and general wear and tear. Hickory floors give you a good bang for your buck. So when you're done looking around to get a good deal, and tired of haggling with businesses that won't budge for your budget, stop into the one store that already has; Wall to Wall, "Your one stop flooring center."
