American made, solid, hardwood flooring. A tradition dating back to before the founding of this country. Lockwood Flooring buys unfinished hardwood flooring from mills located across this great nation. Some of these mills have been in operation for more than 100 years. Often these mills are the largest employer in the communities where they are located and it is common to find that these mills have employed family members down to the 4th or 5th generation. Flooring from these mills is made with pride and ends up in the finest homes and businesses. If you are looking for flooring that is made from a sustainable source, beautiful, healthy, long lasting and a floor that gathers character as it ages, you are in the right place.
Did you know?…
Did you know that the forest products industry is at the forefront of the green movement? Each year these companies, through their membership and involvement in the various environmental organizations, fund research into the best way to both economically and ecologically harvest the lumber we need. These efforts have lead to agreed upon best practices that allow the industry to thrive while at the same time actually benefiting our environment. Wood is the original renewable resource.
Your investment in wood flooring not only benefits the environment, it benefits you, your health and your pocketbook as well. The service life of a quality, well maintained, wood floor can be 80 to 100 years. Wood is the natural choice.
Lockwood / FDG believes strongly in supporting those companies that have made a commitment to a better environment. To that end you will find resources throughout our web site to help you identify those companies that seek to provide a better world to future generations.
Let Lockwood Flooring help you with your real hardwood flooring project.
