Many homeowners want wood flooring, but think it is too noisy when walked on, it will feel cold, and will get scuffed and scratched. WhisperHOME® is the only wood floor in the world with an innovative installation technology that is designed to muffle the sound of footsteps and helps provide added warmth to the room due to improved airflow. Top that (literally), with the highest grade of flooring finish, ever - that meets even the extreme demands of the NASA space program, and you get the smartest wood flooring in the world – quiet, warm, and durable.

One of the Warmest Wood Floors
You’ll Ever Step Foot On

Revolutionary construction with integrated, advanced adhesive applied to the bottom of every plank provides better airflow under the floor, allowing air to circulate. So, the floor maintains a room temperature feeling instead of feeling cold.

Smart for the Environment. Smart for Your Home.

Preserving our natural resources and environment are important. The raw materials used for this floor are sourced only from managed forests in the northern United States. The lumber is purchased from suppliers within a 500-mile radius of the factory that have active reforestation programs and FSC certifications. Only a portion of mature trees are cut, leaving other trees for seeding. Plus, it contains no VOCs, has a formaldehyde free adhesive, and is 100% CARB compliance.
