About Brazilian Cherry

Cherry is a hardwood that is well known among craftsmen because of its unmatched strength and undeniable beauty. This wood is versatile in style and function, allowing homeowners to experiment with unique furniture pieces and a variety of functions. It is equally balanced in malleability and durability that gives it the ability to be cut and sanded, stained and molded, with great ease. Its natural fluidity in any environment makes it an appropriate selection for most homes in Painesville.

Strength & Uses

Brazilian cherry is a gorgeous hardwood that features a light, slightly red tint. This lumber absorbs stain beautifully due to its fine, even texture. The grain generally moves in a straight line, however, features an occasional stray curly pattern that makes every cherry hardwood a unique floor. This hardwood is universally known for its impressive lifespan. It successfully stands rough loving, resists deterioration and decay over the course of time.  Cherry is a gentle hardwood that encourages bare feet walking.

This hardwood is an excellent option for residents seeking low maintenance. We encourage our clients to take immediate action and effective measures when spills or messes occur to surely prevent your floor from permanent blemishes, such as warping, staining, or scratching.
