We understand, there are many great reasons to buy USA-made flooring. First, when you buy U.S.A. made, you will be supporting local businesses. It keeps someone in the U.S.A. with a job and it’s a great feeling knowing that your floors have been manufactured, sealed and constructed by someone in your community. Second, USA-made flooring follows sustainability practices. So, if you’re not only patriotic but are interested in keeping our planet and America safe – these brands are a great choice for you. Regardless of what type of flooring, be it carpet, laminate, vinyl or hardwood flooring, there is a USA-made flooring option.

They’re strategically positioned to give you the finest quality from forestry to finished product. They are most popularly known for quality Appalachian lumber and unfinished flooring prior to entering the manufacture of prefinished flooring.
