With Preverco, appearances are never deceiving

Posted on Mar 2, 2021

In the past, shopping for hardwood floors was complicated. Clients were bombarded with grades that varied from supplier to supplier. People felt as though they needed a PhD to understand the technical information of wood flooring.



Maple floors, easy to maintain, affordable, and simply beautiful!

 

But no more. We’ve stopped the technical mumbo jumbo. With our appearance-based classification for our hardwood floors, we eliminate the confusion. For Preverco, our hardwood appearances are synonymous with the floors’ looks; appearances have nothing to do with the quality of the hardwood floor. In other words, unlike traditional “grade classification systems, regardless of the appearance you choose, you will benefit from the same unmatched hardwood floor quality Preverco is known for.
