Finish & Sheen

We’re here to guide you through the process of selecting the finish and the sheen to achieve your perfect custom look. Our state-of-the-art finishing facility offers a controlled environment that carefully recreates the “on-site finished look” minus the challenges that occur in the field. Shannon & Waterman’s pre-finished floors let you see the finished product prior to installation, allowing you to place each board in the perfect spot to further customize the look of your installation.

An important part of your wood flooring aesthetic is texture — it helps create depth and captures the natural character and beauty of the wood. Add texture with brushing, hand-scraping or a combination of both. For a subtle touch consider hand-scraping just the plank edges to add a unique distinction between each plank. Or, choose not to add any texture and keep the wood smooth — the choice is yours.

Allow us to help you select the wood flooring construction that works best for your project — either solid or engineered. Solid wood expands and contracts with changes in your relative humidity and with our 3/4″ solid wood, you’ll experience a more authentic look with natural movement during seasonal changes. Or, select one of our engineered wood flooring platforms if you prefer a more refined look that is less likely to change with humidity and can be installed above and below grade.

We offer two engineered wood platforms: Standard and Ultimate. Standard is a 4 mm decorative wear layer mounted to a 15 mm Baltic Birch core. Ultimate is a 3-ply construction that sandwiches a 11 mm Baltic Birch core between a 4 mm decorative top wear layer and 4 mm Oak bottom layer, for the ultimate in balance and stability.
