Bruce Hardwood

By Michael Hilton

Hardwood is one of the most beautiful flooring options and one of the most expensive. It is often difficult to find Bruce Hardwood at discount hardwood prices, because Bruce limits the number of hardwood retailers in a market area. This limits the number of retailers selling the line and encourages retailers to market the Bruce Hardwood styles at suggested retail pricing rather than selling these hardwood lines at wholesale hardwood pricing. However, some Dalton, GA Hardwood wholesalers deal in a large enough hardwood volume, that the may not follow the rules in as far as sticking to suggested retail pricing for these hardwood lines. Also, many Dalton Hardwood wholesalers may not carry the Bruce Hardwood line, but these wholesalers typically trade product availability in other limited distribution lines with wholesalers who carry the Bruce line.

Bruce Hardwood is offered in both solid hardwood floor and engineered hardwood flooring styles. Bruce offers various varieties of hardwood flooring quality. Not all Bruce hardwood flooring lines are top quality, but it is one of the most trusted names in Hardwood. Bruce typically offer a good, better, best product quality and has a hardwood floor designed for every budgetary need.

While Bruce is by far the most recognized Hardwood flooring name by consumers, there are dozens of other Hardwood flooring lines that meet or exceed Bruce quality. Carpet manufacturers have entered the hardwood floor market, as well such as Shaw Hardwood and Mohawk hardwood. These manufacturers do not limit distribution as sharply as Bruce, so hardwood pricing for these lines may be more competitive. Cheap hardwood prices are not necessarily a reflection of poor quality, they are more likely the result of competition-The American Way.

In some cases, different hardwood brand names may be placed on the same hardwood style carried by different "manufacturers". Only God can make a tree, but anyone can place their brand on hardwood. Exotic hardwoods and other imported hardwoods are imported and distributed by hardwood importers, who sell these goods to various "manufacturers", who label and market these products under their own brand name.

In shopping for hardwood, don't get too attached or bleary-eyed over a specific brand name. You may find a hardwood style down the street that appears to be the same style and color that carries a different brand name and label at half the price. It could be the same product. Remember, hardwood color varies by board. If you take a sample of your selection to another wholesaler, you may not find an exact color match. If you find an exact match, go back to the original wholesaler and try to find an exact color match from within the same box that your sample was taken. Chances are, you will not find an exact color match from within the same box from where your sample came.

Since brand names mean very little in the hardwood flooring world, the image gallery below could be marketed under various brand names including Bruce. We have linked each image to the Hardwood wholesaler website who has provided the image. Contact these hardwood wholesalers for samples or pricing-you'll probably be glad you did.
