Wood floors come in several different species in domestic or exotic. McCurley’s Floor Center provides & distributes a large selection of different species of prefinished & unfinished hardwood floors. Whether you’re looking for engineered or solid hardwood flooring in Brazilian cherry, hickory, walnut, maple, teak oak or exotic hardwood we have it all.

Alpine Ash
A tall tree found in the cooler high altitudes of the Australian Alps between Melbourne, Victoria and Australia's capital city Canberra. Preferring steep slopes and the sides of mountain ranges, Alpine Ash produces a light consistently creamy colored wood. It is predominantly straight grained as a result of the quartersawn cut providing Alpine Ash with excellent dimensional stability. It is ideal for interiors, ranging from sophisticated retail spaces to elegant home interiors.
Australian Beech
One of the most important hardwoods of Australia, Australian Beech thrives in the warm and relatively humid stretch of New South Wales coastline in a high quality open forest. It is a tall tree up to 230' in height of particularly striking appearance. Its straight trunk rises to at least half of the trees height. The wood is renowned for both its strength and versatility of application with attractive coloring from cream to pale brown.
Brazilian Cherry

Color: Sapwood is gray-white; heartwood is salmon red to orange-brown when fresh, and becomes russet or reddish brown when seasoned; often marked with dark streaks.
Grain: Mostly interlocked; texture is medium to rather coarse.
Variations within species and grades: Moderate to high color variation.

Heritage Oak
A uniquely Australian floor from the rugged Woolshed range of Northern Victoria's Alps. The natural features found in these wide width boards reflect the colorful history and character of Australia's past. Featuring a distinct grain pattern highlighting the attractive light color. Australian Heritage Oak provides a distinguished character to a diverse range of interiors.
Color: Heartwood is uniformly pinkish to dark red, often a rich, dark red mahogany hue, turning a deep brownish red with age and exposure; sapwood is pale. Frequent black streaks with occasional ingrown grain.
Grain: Frequently interlocked or wavy. Texture is even and moderately coarse.
Variations within species and grades: Moderate to high color variation.
Color: Light brown to dark reddish brown.
Grain: High in character, with ingrown bark and mineral streaks. Most commonly used in flooring as end-grain block, which has small irregular cracks radiating across the grain.
Variations within species and grades: One grade; moderate color variations.
Pine (Southern Yellow)
Color: Heartwood varies from light yellow/orange to reddish brown or yellowish brown; sapwood is light tan to yellowish white.
Grain: Closed, with high figuring; patterns range from clear to knotty.
Variations within species and grades: Longleaf pine (P. palustris), shortleaf pine (P. echinata), loblolly pine (P. taeda), slash pine (P. elliottii). All have many of the same characteristics as Douglas fir. Old-growth lumber in these varieties has substantially higher density and is more stable than second-growth material.
Sydney Blue
A blend of medium to large hardwoods harvested from the coastal regions of Australia spanning from just north of Sydney to the Atherton Tablelands west of Cairns in the far north. The name Sydney Blue reflects the attractive blue gray bark which is common to this group of eucalypts. Timber color varies form soft brown reds to deep rich reds which when blended in flooring give a particularly warm luxurious feeling.
Color: Heartwood is yellow-brown when freshly cut, turning dark brown to almost black with alternate layers of light and dark. Sapwood is yellowish-white and clearly demarcated from heartwood.
Grain: Straight when quartersawn; coarse texture.
Variations within species and grades: Moderate variations in color.
