When Wes and Erica moved into their new Birmingham, Alabama home, they knew almost immediately that they wanted to do some serious updating to the space. One of the areas they knew they needed to overhaul was the flooring.
The previous dining room with beige carpet
When Wes moved in, the home featured a beige carpet that simply had to go. Instead of replacing the carpet with a new one, Wes decided that he wanted to invest in a new hardwood flooring to really upgrade the look of their home.
Wes decided on Storka Wentworth hardwood flooring
After consulting with South Cypress, Wes decided on Storka Wentworth oil-rubbed French Oak hardwood flooring. Before the installation, Wes had to use some self-leveling product on certain concavities in the subfloor to ensure there were no ‘spongy’ areas in the floor. When the product arrived, Wes immediately unpacked and randomized each box to ensure variation of each lot throughout the house. Wes says that it took him about 10 working days from the beginning of carpet removal to the last of the ~744 square feet of hardwood being installed.
Wes loves the charm and character that comes with the distressed and reclaimed look of this dark Oak hardwood. The wood is absolutely beautiful!
