Hickory Flooring

Hickory flooring When you want a hardwood floor that is as handsome as it is tough, hickory flooring is the perfect choice. With a tensile strength that rivals steel, hardwood hickory flooring is one of the strongest and most durable floors for residential and commercial settings. Available in both light and dark hickory flooring, the wood is known for auburn and reddish color tones as well as cocoa brown and beige. Grain patterns are marked by mineral streaks and knots, giving hickory hardwood flooring a sophisticated but slightly antique feel that is perfect for everything from modern bungalows to rustic lake-side retreats.

Wide plank hickory flooring delivers beauty and luxury.

Wide plank hickory flooring provides a surface for your home or business that offers greater strength and durability along with a more luxurious and elegant style. Traditional commercial hardwood floors are made from strips of wood that are often no more than 3” wide and 3’ to 4’ long. Wide plank hickory flooring uses boards that may be 4-12”” wide and up to 14’ in length. The effect is stunning – in addition to making the room seem larger, a wide plank floor allows more of the grain and personality of the wood to emerge and creates a less “busy” feel because there are fewer overall seams between planks.

What kind of hickory flooring is right for you?

When designing your wide plank floor with Carlisle, choosing a type of wood is the first option to consider. In addition to hickory flooring, we offer products in Walnut, Ash, Birch, White & Brown Maple, Red & White Oak, Cherry and Pine. Once you have settled on hickory flooring, you have a variety of other options for making your wide plank floor a truly unique expression of your style.

Our offerings include:

Prefinished hickory flooring. Your hickory flooring can either be finished, stained and sealed on-site, or it can be prefinished in our factory. Prefinished floors have already been sanded, stained and sealed before they arrive at your location. A prefinished hickory floor makes installation faster and helps you avoid the mess and disruption that finishing a floor on site can cause. It also allows us to apply stronger protective sealants that can help your floor last longer.

Engineered hickory flooring. Engineered flooring is created with multiple layers or plies of material, rather than using a solid piece of hardwood for each plank. The top layer, called the wear layer, is made of a hardwood veneer to give the engineered floor the same look as a solid wood floor. Beneath that top layer, multiple layers are glued together to provide more stability in below-ground settings like basements, where humidity levels may be higher on average.

Distressed hickory flooring. Distressing a floor adds texture and style that gives the wood a sense of age and time-worn beauty. From hand-scraped edges and watermill marks to footworn surfaces and hit or miss swirls from saw mill blades, the techniques used to create distressed hickory flooring can give your surface a unique and lived-in appearance. Additionally, you can customize your hickory flooring in a wide variety of stains and finishes. And choosing a pattern like Chevron, Herringbone, Versailles or a custom parquet can help to create a stunning look for any room.
