No other flooring offers the warmth, beauty and value of wood. It enhances the look
of any room and increases the value of a home because of its timeless look
and endless durability.
We invite you to come in and browse through our showroom in Appleton, WI and take in the warmth and beauty of our wood floors. Our two floors of sample woodwork will show you just what we can do with a wide variety of wood species and styles, from Red Oak to African Doussie, strip floor to hand-scraped or reclaimed plank floor, and parquet with laser-cut inlay borders. We also offer a wide variety of feature boards, wraps and precision-cut medallions. Come in and peruse your options.

Traditional hardwood floor sanding is typically an extremely dusty process. With Baseman Floors, you won’t have to worry about the clean-up mess associated with sanding.
At Baseman Floors, we use a dust-containment system that drastically reduces the amount of dust during the sanding process. Powerful vacuums are connected to our sanding equipment to eliminate virtually all airborne dust.
Our dust-containment system is trailer-mounted and run by a gas-powered engine outside on our truck. Not only does this eliminate dust and increase airflow, it keeps toxic fumes out of your home.
The Janka hardness test measures the force required to embed a .444-inch steel ball to half its diameter in wood. It is the industry standard for gauging the ability of wood species to withstand denting and normal wear. Due to differences in grain patterns, some wood species may show dents and scratches more readily than others, despite having a higher Janka score.
Certainly, but you may want to take into consideration that softer woods, such as birch or walnut, will show wear more readily than harder woods. Also, we recommend keeping your pets’ nails trimmed.
The most important way to keep your floors in good shape is by keeping sand and grit off of the floor. We sell cleaning kits to remove spills and grime from your floors. When your floor begins to show wear, a light sanding and application of another coat of finish.
I was so glad when Baseman Floors won the bid to install our new floor. From start to finish, they took excellent care of us and made the process run smoothly. When it comes to ongoing maintenance, Baseman is our only choice.
