Anderson Tuftex Bernina Hickory

We installed our clients top choice, Anderson Tuftex Bernina Hickory, on their entire first floor. This 1/2″ thick engineered wood flooring is beautiful and versatile. It features a heavy hand-scraped texture and 5″ wide planks. The high color variation of the hickory wood adds to its appeal. This hardwood flooring can be installed above, on, or below grade. It can even be installed over radiant heat. With the option to choose any of four installation methods, we can nail, staple, glue, or float this floor over virtually any subfloor.

Refinishing Wood Stairs & Railing

Our crew began by removing the existing carpet runner from the staircase. All of the spindles were also removed for painting and to allow for sanding of the railing. The treads, risers, and railing were all scraped, filled, and sanded down clean and smooth. As always, the dust from the sanding process was contained and the rest of the house remained clean and dust free. Once everything was sanded and wiped down, the staining process began. The stain color was custom blended to contrast the Bernina Hickory color. The spindles were installed and the risers were painted white.

This textured style carpet is made from the super soft and extremely stain resistant 100% Stainmaster® Luxerell™ Bcf Nylon. You can choose from any of the twenty-four colors available.
