Allow Nature to Customize Your Floor™
Hardwood Floors of Distinction Since 1984.
HomerWood is the originator of Traditional Character™ flooring, crafted from the entire tree. Our floors are beautifully preserved and reveal all of the trees' natural perfections, including original markings, distinctive graining, and inherent characteristics. While planks may feature a distinctive array of knots, splits and checks, pith and sap content, we take special care to remove any defects that could weaken the floor. The result is an elegant, premium floor that features both clear and character planks that reflect the greatest attributes of natural wood. Our extraordinary work ethic and attention to detail are reflected in every aspect of producing a one-of-a-kind HomerWood floor; including hand selection of boards, Amish Hand-Scraped® artistry and personal determination of quality.
HomerWood was founded in 1984 and is located in Titusville, PA, situated in the heart of the Appalachian Mountain region. The plant originally made architectural moldings and hardwood flooring, employing just 4 people.
In June of 1991, a fire destroyed the original HomerWood building and all equipment, tooling and inventory were lost. As a result, the company reevaluated the focus of HomerWood and decided to rebuild the plant, not just to manufacture flooring, but to make a product that was different from the traditional grades of flooring common in most homes.
In 2004, HomerWood enlisted the help of local Amish artisans to hand-scrape our flooring products, after realizing the Amish had a natural talent for styling and crafting the individual planks. The Amish Hand-Scraped® collection was born.
In 2006, HomerWood was acquired by Armstrong World Industries; bringing a premium brand to the Armstrong and Bruce portfolio of hardwood products.
In 2007, HomerWood added engineered structures to the flooring profiles offered. A surface coating expansion also allowed all flooring to be finished onsite in Titusville.
In 2009, HomerWood introduced its largest product launch, bringing 30 new colors, wire-brushed textures and smoked visuals to the marketplace. The line consists of 48 visuals, both solid and engineered, that truly position the HomerWood brand as a leader in design, quality, and craftsmanship.
In 2010, HomerWood® Hardwood Flooring announced that its Titusville, Pennsylvania manufacturing plant has received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody certification.
In 2012, HomerWood introduced the Birch Run Collection, a new species option in a designer inspired color palette.
FSC provides third-party certification confirming that materials used are harvested from well-managed, sustainable forest operations. HomerWood purchases raw material from suppliers who use only the highest standard in forestry practices, thus assuring the conservation and replenishment of forests.
