Wood floors make the room. Any room. Every room. Maybe that's biased.

How Wood Cut Affects Floor Performance
How Wood Cut Affects Floor Performance
Palo Duro Hardwoods - Tuesday, August 08, 2017

We talked recently about wood cuts: quarter, rift, plain and live. We also talked about the forest-to-floor process. We even got in the dirt of the forest with a recent tree anatomy guide and how that anatomy relates to wood flooring.

The cut of wood from a tree, the angle of how boards are cut when harvested, affects the wood flooring that will be made from that wood. It affects the costs of production and the final appearance of the wood flooring.

5 Steps of Wood | Forest to Floor
5 Steps of Wood | Forest to Floor
Palo Duro Hardwoods - Tuesday, July 11, 2017

It’s so easy to buy products without knowing where they came from and the path they took before they landed at our door step. Without really knowing where, knowing something deeper than a label that only says, “Made in ______.” Without knowing how the products were made, and how that sets them apart from similar products.

The Anatomy of Wood Flooring
The Anatomy of Wood Flooring
Palo Duro Hardwoods - Tuesday, May 30, 2017

We’ve all hiked in the woods or seen a fallen tree in a park and looked at its rings. One common bit of knowledge passed on to us since we were kids was that if we count that tree’s rings we’ll know its age. Had an infomercial announcer been on-hand, he’d have said, “But wait! There’s more.”

How to Fix a Squeaky Floor
How to Fix a Squeaky Floor
Palo Duro Hardwoods - Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Squeaky floors. Do they drive you crazy, like fingernails on a chalkboard (when those still existed)? Maybe you block out the noises now, having tolerated them for years. Maybe you avoid walking over those especially creaky areas in your house, winding your way from the living room to the refrigerator during quick episode breaks when binging on the latest, greatest Netflix Original.

You’re busy and want convenience. Apps for this and that. A car that tells you how to avoid traffic while on the go. A drive-thru pit stop for a family meal between karate lessons and ball team practices on a busy weeknight. We get it.
