Hickory is a beautiful hardwood that is incredibly durable and resistant to every day wear and tear. It is known for being exceptionally heavy, hard and strong, with a unique course texture and straight grain pattern. Ranked as 45% more durable than Red Oak, hickory offers a resistance to common dents and scratches; making the wood highly desirable as flooring in high-traffic homes and commerical settings.
Hickory Makes Bold Statement in Chapel Hill Home
Logs End recently supplied 4¼” Solid Hickory, pre-finished with the Walnut stain, for a residence in Ottawa’s East End neighbourhood of Chapel Hill. On this project, Eugene (Owner, Micel Flooring) did a custom build on the staircase and railings with a colour match to the newly laid hickory floor.
