Florence Green Engineered Hardwood

If you prefer a true rustic look, the Florence Green maple flooring is an exceptional product. This engineered hardwood product features planks that are varying sizes to really give the floor unique character.

The maple wood grain and semi gloss finish present a rich appearance, and the beveled edges create an attractive look. It is relatively easy to staple or glue down the planks, and to clean it, you simply sweep or dust mop it as needed.

Hampton Suite Engineered Hardwood

For a hand scraped maple flooring option with the appearance of natural wood in tones of light, medium, and dark, the Hampton Suite product is fabulous. The planks are hand honed and enjoy an 11 step semi gloss finish. The 7 foot planks have filled knots and splits, and the product comes in light and medium tones of maple wood for a true, vintage look.

Sweep or dust mop the floor as needed for cleaning, but do not use water or harsh cleaners. This product comes with a 35-year warranty.

Porter Hill Engineered Hardwood

For a rich, antiquated, hardwood maple flooring solution, the Porter Hill product is magnificent. This product, when installed, creates an even, fluid flooring pattern that has the appearance of reclaimed custom planks.

An artistic finish is added by filing checks, then wire brushed to complete the design. They are then stained to a glowing warmth creating a very welcoming atmosphere in any room.

Max Tile Raised Floor Tile

A great maple flooring alternative that will perform well in a damp environment is the modular Max Tile raised tile. These look very attractive with their commercial grade vinyl laminate surface. Although it resembles a shiny hardwood floor, it will never need to be resurfaced or refinished.

These easy to install 1x1 foot raised floor tiles are durable and versatile, and designed to allow air flow underneath - which prevents the growth of mold and mildew. This is a great option if you want a product that you can install and disassemble, as it is well suited for repeat installations.

Envee Rigid Core LVP Laminate Planks

A maple flooring alternative that is super economical is the Envee Rigid Core LVP Laminate Planks. This will not expand like laminate does when moisture is present, and it is very resistant to moisture.
