Somerset has a production advantage in that Somerset Wood Products supplies the kiln-dried lumber to its flooring division for the manufacture of Somerset brand residential hardwood flooring. This gives Somerset tremendous quality control over the final product. Somerset currently offers homeowners a vast array of options to meet their personal tastes.
The planks in the Somerset Classic collection are constructed using red oak from Appalachia. Somerset takes measures to help ensure the classic collection features planks that have realistic texture on the top layer and are produced in a number of natural and designer colors. These are available at American Carpet Wholesalers in 3 1/4 inch and 5 inch plank varieties, the lengths are random and up to 6 1/2 feet for a more natural pattern during installation.
Somerset hardwood engineered floors are a good choice if you really want the look of classic hardwoods but don’t quite have the budget for solid hardwood flooring. These engineered floors are all made in the USA from sustainable sources. In fact Somerset has earned the Forest Stewardship Council Chain of Custody Certification and is a member of the Appalachian Hardwood Manufacturers, Inc. Their manufacturing standards meet the standards of forest sustainability and think long-term about their with a 100 year plan for their forests.
For installation you have several choices; you can choose to go traditional with nails or staples, the plank can be glued, or you can have a floating installation. Somerset backs up their product with a 50 year finish wear warranty and a lifetime structural warranty. With its 8 ply cross grain construction and 7 ply birch core this is a plank floor that should hold up well under normal conditions.
