Production Scheduling

Understanding our production scheduling will help to ensure your hardwood flooring is finished as quickly as possible. Whether it is shipping out or being received in, we have you covered.

Your hardwood flooring can be prefinished within one to two weeks after the raw flooring is entered into our system. 


We do, however, recognize that "rush orders" come up from time to time, and we will make efforts to accommodate your requests.

Smaller runs or custom color requests are typically scheduled for Fridays. In order to have your small or custom color order run on Friday, your raw wood must be received by Wednesday.
