Sun Mountain is pleased to introduce a selection of new factory-applied finishes, available on Cherry, Hickory, Red Oak, White Oak, Sapele, and Walnut wide plank floors. Finishes are grouped into four palettes—light, brown, gray, and red—providing a beautiful and broad spectrum of choices. Sun Mountain’s flooring finishes include water-based stains and glazes, including several new “ceruse” finishes that highlight and accentuate the open grain of the wood, with durable UV top coats and either matte or satin sheens. Both solid and engineered floors are available, in widths from 4″ to 8″ wide, end-matched, and with a choice of edge details. Sun Mountain also offers a variety of distressed wood options, including hand-planed and hand-scraped treatments.

In addition to introducing new finishes, Sun Mountain has expanded the Wide Plank Flooring pages of its website. With the implementation of a filtering tool, users may now view, explore, and compare flooring finishes on different wood species. “We are very pleased with this enhancement to our website,” said Sun Mountain’s General Manager, Ed Wright. “We feel we’ve taken what can be an overwhelming process and, with this unique website tool, assisted people in finding the perfect wood floor for their home.”

Users may also customize their flooring designs through a simplified product “configurator,” specifying features such as wood species, plank widths, edge detail, and finish options. “Because many of the selections are presented visually and with ‘tool tips,’ the configurator feature helps to organize the user experience and streamline the quoting process,” Wright added.
