At Floor Coverings International Triad, we help Greensboro homeowners find the perfect hardwood flooring for their homes. Many families in the greater Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point area choose maple for their flooring needs. They love this gorgeous hardwood because of its strength, sustainability, and soft features. Read on for more information about maple from your local flooring experts:

Soft and Subtle

Maple is well known for its soft and subtle appearance. This is due to its lack of a strong grain. You can find some maple with brown streaks or even “birdseyes”, but for the most part, the graining on a piece of maple is fine and sometimes hard to see at all. There are generally some slight shade differences from board to board in this creamy white hardwood. Its light, simple look and feel make it a great choice for modern and traditional aesthetics alike.

Strong and Low-Maintenance

With a Janka hardness score of 1,450, maple is one of the stronger domestic hardwood species. This makes it a great choice for large, busy families as well as pet owners. With a usual hardwood maintenance regimen—sweeping and vacuuming weekly and refinishing every few years—your maple hardwood is sure to provide warmth and beauty for generations.


Native to the Northern United States and Canada, maple is grown close to home. Local, sustainable tree production is better for the environment because it cuts down on the pollution generated by shipping materials across oceans. Many Greensboro residents choose maple because it is an ethical, sustainable choice.
