Beautiful and Sustainable Somerset Hardwood

Naturally occurring wood characteristics such as mineral streaks, knots, and variations in grain and color are not considered defects. All Somerset flooring is proudly manufactured in the USA to the highest quality standards. When you buy Somerset, you can feel good about contributing to the growth of U.S. manufacturing and jobs. Somerset Hardwoods are one of our special this May from $5.75 SF for Builder Grade

Now more than 50 million tons of wood fiber and sawdust generated by our manufacturing processes—instead of ending up in a landfill—is converted into premium grade pellet fuel. Somerset brand pellets are sold across the U.S. through major pellet distributors and retailers for use in pellet stoves and fireplace inserts.

Strategically Positioned to Manufacture the Finest Flooring

Somerset manufactures flooring from the finest natural hardwood resource in America—Appalachian hardwood. With corporate headquarters in Somerset, Kentucky, and manufacturing facilities in central Kentucky, the heart of the Appalachian timberlands, the company is strategically positioned to give you the finest quality.

Vertically Integrated—from the Forest to the Finished Product

Somerset processes millions of board feet of lumber a year. Throughout operations, including their own lumber manufacturing, and drying, milling, and finishing of hardwood flooring, the company maintains control over the entire process. This is an important reason they are able to consistently produce quality products that you can purchase with confidence!

State-of-the-Art Facilities and Quality People

To achieve their uncompromising high quality standards, Somerset continually invests in the most modern manufacturing equipment, paved lumberyards, computer-controlled dry kilns, state-of-the-art finishing lines, and dedicated employees. It is their skilled and dedicated employees that ultimately make the difference in their products, service, and reputation.

Wood is an Environmentally Sound Choice

Somerset flooring is an environmentally sound choice because trees are a renewable and sustainable resource. You can trust that maintaining healthy and productive forests are a priority—not only are they essential to the world where our children are growing up, but our jobs, and the livelihood of hundreds of Somerset employees and their families depends on the forests. Somerset supports the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, requiring that they be responsible stewards of managed timberlands by meeting independently established and monitored objectives on an ongoing basis. Somerset is also one of the only major manufacturers to have a full-time forestry staff.
