Brazilian cherry flooring, also called Jatoba, is the most popular imported hardwood flooring from Brazil. Its warm red hue and bold shadows are perfect for bringing elegance to both residential and commercial settings in the Calgary, Alberta area. At Floor Coverings International Calgary, we have a great selection of Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring and are here to help you find the perfect variation!
Brazilian cherry is extremely durable. It rates a 2820 on the Janka Hardness Scale (a scale that compares the hardness of all the different species of hardwood flooring). The higher the Janka score, the more durable the hardwood. Compare that to a 1360 rating for white oak flooring and you can see that Brazilian cherry makes a great choice for high traffic areas. While these floors do fall on the pricier end of the spectrum, their durability is unmatched. Brazilian cherry hardwood floors are sure to last in your home for decades to come.
Brazilian cherry flooring tends to have a high degree of color variation. From style to style and even within a particular style, you are likely to see shades ranging from a rich chocolate to a deep red. These floors age beautifully and tend to deepen over time.
This type of variation is part of the appeal of this product and can add character to any space. Call today to talk with a design associate at Floor Coverings International Calgary and find just the right hue for you.
A good installation team will also keep an eye on the variation in colors of the planks and make sure to spread the color variation out evenly across the whole room. Our installation teams have installed countless square feet of Jatoba flooring and they are ready to install yours.
