About Cherry Flooring
There are several varieties of hardwood called “cherry.” American or domestic cherry hardwood is typically the most common in Chandler area flooring stores. However, you may also encounter Brazilian cherry, Bolivian cherry, and other similar species used in flooring.
These types of cherry flooring vary in terms of color, grain pattern, hardness, and other factors. For example, Brazilian cherry has an open grain that looks similar to oak but is twice as hard. American cherry, on the other hand, is on the softer end of the Janka hardness scale and isn’t as vibrantly red as Brazilian cherry. You can also find cherry hardwood flooring in a wide range of stains and finishes, including hand-scraped or distressed styles.
When it comes to installation, cherry has closed pores, making it slightly more challenging to finish. So if you choose a cherry hardwood flooring that is not prefinished, it’s important that a qualified installation team applies the finish evenly to achieve that perfect look. Our flooring experts will be happy to take these tasks on for you!
