brings out the true character and beauty of the wood floor. The stenght
and stability of our ROYALGUARDTM pre-finish is formaldehyde free which ensures an environmentally friendly floor and makes the maintenance of a Ernest Hemingway® Hardwood Flooring by Royalton® trouble free.
Engineered Flooring Construction
Hardwood flooring is a living material that is affected by the
environment. A great advantage of engineered hardwood floring is the
stability it offers compared to a solid wood floor during seasonal
changes. Ernest Hemingway® Hardwood Flooring features multy-ply and cross cut construction, which both offer perfect balance and performance.
Traditional Plain Sawn Cut
Ernest Hemingway® Hardwood Flooring by Royalton® is
cut using Plain-Sawn method, a similar cutting process as a solid
hardwood floor, resulting in a much finer, tighter and more traditional
wood grain that completely eliminates the spliting and peeling process
associated with peeled veneers. Because the surface of the floor is
visually the most important part, a Plain-Sawn cut offers a wide viriety
of looks, adding character and charm to a hardwood floor.
Same As Solid
An engineered floor will offer the same robust and luxurious feeling
as a solid wood floor. When installed both types of flooring feel and
look are the same. A solid floor can only be sanded until the top edge
of the tongue and groove. The construction of Ernest Hemingway® Hardwood
Flooring takes full advantage of a thick top layer which can be equal
to the sandable thickness on some solid floors. The Plain Sawn top layer
combined with our Royalguard finish will provide the homeowner with a
beautiful floor that will last for years.
Characteristics And Changes
Ernest Hemingway® Hardwood Flooring by Royalton® collections
are purposely selected as a character wood which contain all the
original defining uniqueness such as open knotholes, pits, worm holes,
true crafstmanship hand-scraping and other naturally ocurring elements
of a character grade floor. Our clients ourchase these floors precisely
for those defining characteristics in order to create a truly vintage
Another important aspect to consider is when wood is exposed to
normal sunlight it is subject to color changes. As with all natural
products made from wood, these changes are expected and add beauty and
distinctiveness to a hardwood floor.
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY FOR ANY FLOORING OR CABINETS!!!
This company does not even deserve one star! They are a JOKE!! WORST ever experience with a kitchen and flooring remodel with them. Would NEVER EVER refer any one to this place. Products are crappy, had TWO bad sets of hard wood flooring, delayed work for a week and a day to get new floors, meanwhile, while still trying to live with my 2 young children in the house that is all in shambles as moving things around so floors can be is not easy!! Finally once a good batch of floors came in it took 4 days to get it laid. As for the kitchen....where do i even start?! Cabinets were ordered so horribly, that my 8 year could have done a better job! Contractors made several trips to a warehouse in Chino to get cabinets, and to still come back with the wrong sizes and colors multiple times!! Time wasted for that 5 days! Oh and the contractor that they "referred" didn't speak any English! that makes it very hard to communicate on a project. And it was only ONE guy to do a whole kitchen cabinet job alone! So, so many issues with quality of the installation of cabinets! And so many times of trying to reach out to Jared the so called manager with no care to help! Started this project on 11-14-16 and to this day my kitchen is STILL not 100% complete per the agreement that was made with this company. And the craftsmanship work is very poor quality.
I have to wonder how they are even still in business!! I really wished i would have looked at their reviews before I signed a contract with them, so for that shame on me. I hope that people see this and turn the other way from this company on to better places to door any flooring or cabinets! - By Danielle N
This was my first time using SD Flooring Center & Design. I was very happy with them. My floors were done very well and very quickly, they really look great! They did a very good job, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.I could not be happier with my new floors. - By Catherine S
