Thank you a million times for everything! I love my floors!!

We used Pureza Wood Floors throughout our modern farmhouse project located in the San Francisco Bay Area. At the outset of our project, we know the floors would be a key focal point of the interior. We found Pureza Wood online and decided to order samples to see how they compared to the numerous others we accumulated from local hardwood stores. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the construction and finish. The pricing was very competitive to other European Oak we considered with the added benefit of being French Oak. We ended up going with a clear matte finish to highlight the character of the floors and also had Pureza make our stair treads and risers. Despite some hiccups due to COVID, the floors turned out beautifully. The wood and finish is stunning and frankly even better than we expected. Pureza Wood is a family run business and it shows - James and his team are an absolute pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend Pureza Wood to anyone looking for bespoke French Oak flooring at a fair price. You will not be disappointed!

We could not be happier with the final product in our new construction home. We are so happy that we chose Pureza for our engineered hardwood!

James was not only wonderful to work with but his product is first class and elevated the look and feel of our house to new dimensions!

I have been in the wood flooring industry for 30 years. Nearly all manufacturers have cheapened their product but not their prices. This product is of the highest quality! In a time where the quality of nearly everything has fallen off, or corners are cut to make more money and the quality goes down, rest assured that this company CARES about EVERY customer. My experience was one on one customer service from start to finish. I can not wait for the opportunity to use this company again and again.

My experience with Pureza wood was phenomenal. James is so attentive to all our needs for the right flooring for our project. There are many that claim they have premium product, but Pureza is the best. Even our installers said they had never seen such high quality wood and finish in all their projects. I have been and will keep recommending Pureza Wood to everyone.

Our experience with PurezaWood was fantastic! James offers superior customer service. After seeing similar products at the Mart, I was happy to find PurezaWood offering a great product at a great value. Our flooring was installed two years ago and it still looks new. The European White Oak used by Pureza is superior quality and their factory finish has stood up to Chicago winters, three kids and a dog. Living in Chicago, I also felt good about supporting a local, family-owned small business. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend Purezawood for anyone that is in the market for new hardwood floors. Their French Oak floors are the highest quality that come in a wide variety of finishes and you can also choose a custom finish. The owner James is very knowledgeable and provided excellent service from the start to end of the project.

Our flooring is beautiful and we couldn't be happier. I would equate our experience with the PurezaWood team to that of a bespoke suit fitting. James paid careful attention to our concerns and expectations and brought plenty of stain and finish options to match our project. We would highly recommend PurezaWood if you are interested in the best french white oak on the market. You'll be surprised how affordable luxury engineered flooring is.

I found PurezaWood on Instagram and I am so glad I did! After completing a full house renovation, I feel the floors are the most beautiful part. Everyone who comes over comments on them. On top of that, their quality is unmatched and I loved supporting a small family business. Wins all around! Thank you to James and the team at PurezaWood.

Thank you PurezaWood for making our dream home look so beautiful! The floors are amazing with the highest quality! Avoid the box stores because you WILL NOT find the quality that you get from PurezaWood! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

It is hard to beat genuine French White Oak wood flooring, and impossible to beat PurezaWood’s combination of price, quality, and service for that type of floor! James and his support team are super knowledgeable and friendly. They have extensive worldwide connections which allow for very competitive pricing and quality control. After it was installed we ordered more for the 2nd floor because we loved it so much! The color is River North.

When I first started looking at different oak flooring options for my first full gut renovation I honestly did not know where to start. I talked to several different builders in the area and most recommended the same big box names everyone buys from for standard American Oak. After connecting with James at Purerza and touring their facilities it became clear I found the flooring product that I will use on all my builds.Theervice you receive and quality of floorisng is in its own league.Beware that once you go Pureza you won't be able to settle for anything less!

PurezaWood sets a high bar for quality and customer service. We loved the wide oak planks the minute we set eyes on them in the showroom. Initially we were disappointed that our custom order in 2018 was significantly due to trade issues. It made us wonder how good are these floors anyway when we were pressed for time. Once the floors were installed, the custom color was so refreshing that I had a difficult time parting with them in the condo we outgrew. There were frustrating moments with humidity, which James patiently tried to assist with, but harsh Chicago winters also didn't help. When we had a couple of boards that needed to be replaced 2-3 years later, James went above and beyond to source a couple of pieces for me. He remembers his clients and values the relationships, and the custom hardwood is beautiful. It's also important to use a great installer to not compromise the integrity of the floors!

James was great from the beginning to the end.Highly recommend PurezaWood to those who demands high quality hardwoods and great customer service.

I have researched, visited many stores, and ordered numerous samples to find the “right” wood. After visiting PurezaWood and meeting James, I knew this was the place! The selection, wood quality is superior, unparalleled to others. James is very knowledgeable and treats each customer like family, striving to find the perfect wood.I’ve installed hardwood on a concrete slab in several rooms. The first room was not PurezaWood (not aware of PurezaWood at the time). I purchased a high quality wood and the floors were installed with the proper gaps uniformly around the perimeter. The floor looked nice after install, but after a year, due to thermal expansion (and those cold Chicago winters), a large gap developed…in the center…ugggh!After “finding” PurezaWood, James directed me to various options. I installed a beautiful, 9.5 inch French Oak hardwood in the next room. After ~1.5 years, the floor looks exactly the same, no movement, no fading, gorgeous! Lesson learned, when installing on a concrete slab, critical to obtain a very, very high quality product, ie PurezaWood, (“good” is not “good enough”).My PurezaWood floors look amazing!!! I am ordering wood for my 3rd room with James. Yes, I would highly recommend PurezaWood!

Can’t say enough about James and Purezawood. James takes customer service to a new level. We did a new home construction wood floor. 1700 square feet of 7 1/2” wide Elmhurst and 200 square feet of herringbone.James was flexible and stored our flooring in his warehouse until we were ready for it. He even helped load our truck.The product is like no other on the market. Nothing even close. Have confidence working with Purezawood.
00:46 14 Feb 21
I absolutely love my floors! James and his team are true pros. Took the time to explain and educate me throughout the process to make sure I get the absolute best results. High quality, beautiful finish, and the value is unbeatable. Really. You are buying factory direct. No middleman. Wood is sourced from France. Thank you, James!

A 5 STAR EXPERIENCE WITH PUREZAWOOD!!!! THANK YOU JAMES!!!!I bought a house with a heated floor system and needed to find an engineered floor that could sustain the heat. My search linked me to PurezaWood and I immediately reached out to the company to learn more about their products. I talked to James on the phone and he was so helpful and knowledgeable. He explained the quality of the product from the overall manufacturing process, wood quality, bonding agents, thickness and stains and finishes used. In addition, I went in to PurezaWood's showroom with great samples and illustrations of products. James met me and helped me make an informed decision. He did not rush me and was patient as I was finalizing my purchase. The high expectations that James promoted for the product would prove to be true. After receiving it, I was thoroughly impressed. My installers were amazed at the quality of the product. Anyone that has seen the floor just comments how beautiful it is. I highly recommend PurezaWood for an engineered hardwood flooring installation. James and Cassie are running their business to the highest standards. Thank you!!!!! Joe M

We've collaborated with PurezaWood on past projects and will gladly continue to do so. Their knowledge and professionalism are unparalleled. It's refreshing to deal with a partner that values integrity and workmanship above all else.
20:50 16 Nov 20
Purezawood floors are a superior product at a more affordable price- and that’s rare these days! James and his family were a pleasure to work with from beginning to end, and I would recommend their product to anyone buying new or renovating.

I visited and researched a lot of companies while trying to find the perfect engineering flooring for my condo in Chicago. I was looking for the highest quality at a reasonable price. The large home improvement stores and some local suppliers offered low pricing but inferior quality that did not meet my standards. Researching more upscale suppliers led me to the Merchandise Mart, where I found the right quality, but price was way too expensive.Then I found Chicago's best kept secret for engineered flooring, PurezaWood!!! Not only do they offer superior quality than the flooring stores at Merchandise Mart, the price is also significantly lower. I ended up selecting wide plank (7.5" inches wide & 3/4" thickness) French oak engineered flooring in a custom dark finish and I love it! My floors are beautiful and exactly what I had envisioned.I would recommend PurezaWood to anyone looking for superior quality custom engineered flooring at a price that I'm sure will beat any competitor! I must also say that the owner, James, is great as he provides outstanding customer service and is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.So, if you're looking for engineered flooring, look no further and give James a call!
22:38 11 Nov 20
My husband and I spent a lot of time researching and searching for the best flooring for our new home. As soon as we found PurezaWood, our search was over. We were blown away by the quality of the product. You are getting merch mart quality product for a very reasonable price. James was beyond helpful throughout the entire process. He stayed in communication with us and our contractor as the floors were laid and the stain was chosen. Our floors totally transformed our home, we would highly recommend his product to anyone!
02:13 06 Nov 20
If you're looking for premium wood floors look no where else!After searching many different places, we came across PurezaWood. James guided us during the purchase phase all the way thru the install phase (installed them ourselves). He was amazing to work with, always had time to answer our many questions.The floors themselves are beautiful. A very premium 3/4in 7.5in wide plank is what we went with. Most vendors sell floors that are thin and have a thin wear layer (determines how many times the floor can be sanded). 1-3mm wear layer is what we were finding at other vendors. PurezaWood sells 6mm wear layers!!! Definitely will do business with PurezaWood in the future.Stop wasting time looking elsewhere!
22:24 04 Nov 20
From my very first phone call with James at PurezaWood, to our visit to his beautiful showroom, I was made to feel like his only customer. He is very passionate about the wood products he sells. He was very upfront on everything including timeline & pricing & I felt he was honest & very straightforward through the entire process & readily available to answer questions I had. He always kept me in the loop regarding the production of my floors. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase more floors from James in the future. I feel like my new kitchen is a little slice of Parisian heaven now.
02:26 21 Oct 20
The product from PurezaWood is top quality and I’m extremely happy with the look and feel of the wood. Working with James and team was easy, and the communication was a breeze.Because PurezaWood is custom made, you have so many more options than a typical box store- with much better quality.If you are looking for a quality product, at a competitive price, look no further!
21:43 07 Oct 20
We purchased over 6000 Sq. Feet of flooring from PurezaWood and we are very happy with the quality. Their customer service is super friendly and prices are great compare to other places. We were dealing with James and he was great. We definitely recommend PurezaWood to anyone who is looking for great flooring with best prices.
20:16 24 Aug 20
We were pretty set on getting 7.5" wide plank flooring throughout the main floor in our newly purchased home to replace the mishmash of tiling, wood and carpeting.After several frustrating weekends searching flooring stores and being unable to find the combination of width, color and most important quality we were hoping for, we found Pureza quite honestly by chance. James was willing to meet us on super short notice on a Saturday and walk us through his product offering and needless to say we were impressed. As a family run business, it's clear that there is passion in the product here and a desire for the utmost quality possible and it really shines through when you see the wood live.We ended up opting for an unstained version of their 7.5" European White Oak, which our contractor then installed and stained to our taste. The whole process from purchase to delivery was quick and seamless, and James was there to answer questions along the way.All in all a very positive experience with Pureza, I would certainly recommend.
19:42 29 May 20
If you don’t go with Purezawood you are losing out! They have a far superior product than any other place you will find. We searched big box stores and many smaller stores and nothing compared to the quality of Purezawood flooring. We found them on Google, called and James arranged for us to visit the showroom right away. As soon as we walked in, we were sold! We couldn’t be more happy with our floors and the wonderful customer service from James and his whole crew.Thank you James!Alisha Hunt and Leslie Doherty
03:48 09 Apr 20
They have an amazing selection of flooring, we re did our living room and we are extremely happy with it! The floors are amazing quality and Easy to install if you have Had experience with installing floors. I would highly recommend Purezawood for any flooring project.
13:19 08 Apr 20
I own an installation company and have been installing wood floors for many years. PurezaWood is my favorite to install, and it was easy for me to decide to use it in my own home. These floors are always impressive, beautiful, and durable. I'm very happy with them.
23:03 05 Feb 20
We were looking to replace our old carpet and the traditional thin strips of solid hardwood that floors every home in our area. After some research and HGTV, we decided to go with some custom wide plank engineered hardwood floors. Unfortunately, all home improvement stores/floor stores seemed to have the same uniform wood flooring. It felt fake and artificial.After a long search, we discovered Purezawood. They have a showroom we visited nearby in Chicago. The difference in durability and appearance was staggering. The wood is thicker than competitors’ and the material feels fresh from the lumber yard. Each floor board has a wide variety of design.The picture in this review shows the finished product after a full calendar year of Chicago weather with no issues whatsoever.
00:11 23 Jan 20
I'm a GC and I sourced my hardwood flooring from James and his team for my personal condo I'm remodeling at 100 E Huron in Chicago. It took a bit longer than expected but the result was worth the wait. The color is exactly what I wanted and quality of the wood is very impressive. Both the top layer and the weight & construction of the sub layers definitely stand out vs other woods we've worked with over the years. I will definitely use James in the future and also recommend James and his team to our future remodel clients.
13:43 27 Dec 19
Very happy with the beautiful French oak floors we purchased for our new custom home! We got the wide plank flooring 9 1/2” wide. You can totally tell the difference of their quality from other wood floors. Their standards met ours and they were very easy to work with. Our general contractor and interior designer were so impressed working with them that they will continue to work with them more in the future.
01:17 28 Nov 19
James from PurezaWood was so helpful and knowledgeable. Superb product, quality & service from James of PurezaWood.Thank you for everything.
22:32 14 Nov 19
PurezaWood is an amazing company! The owner James is very attentive and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with each step of the process from the design stage to the installation. The wood floors are beautiful and top quality, completely changing the entire feel of my apartment. I can't say enough how nice it was to work with someone who is passionate about the work they do, going the extra mile the whole process! Thank you James & PurezaWood! I couldn't have chosen a better company to help me through one of the more stressful experiences I've had!
14:57 16 Aug 19
I live in a high rise with concrete floors and was looking for some engineered hardwood floors. I didn't want to go the Home Depot route. I wanted something with more quality, a thicker top layer and good plywood. Pureza wood was a local company that I found nearby. They can customize your colors in a variety of thicknesses.I stopped in their showroom and was quiet surprised to be dealing directly with the president that day. The whole process was smooth and easy. Its obvious James is passionate about his business and his products. I would definitely recommend Purezawood to anyone looking for a top quality engineered hardwood floor
02:12 02 Jul 19
I am so glad my GC recommended PurezaWood. I had PurezaWood custom make 9" wide French Oak for my basement and remodel and they even made the transition pieces to match. I saved a lot of money and time working with James. If you're looking for the type of floor you can find in the merchandise mart but better, then I would recommend you check out PurezaWood first. These are probably the highest quality hardwood floors in Chicago!
22:54 12 Jun 19
Product quality is second to none. Experience that James and his team delivers is exceptional! Very attentive and knowledgeable.
01:52 28 May 19
James and his team are an absolute joy to work with. We used the wide plank French White Oak for our floors in our new townhome and are extremely happy with the results. His prices are better than other options in similar or better in quality and style to other more expensive brands seen at the Merchandise Mart.
16:28 14 May 19
My wife and I have had a great experience working with James at PurezaWood!When you first visit James' showroom, you can appreciate his passion for his products. It's truly a high-end product, direct to the consumer. If you've looked in the typical places for hardwood options, you'll be blown away with the quality of what he offers.We opted for the 7.5” wide, French White Oak, in a beautiful grayish brown pre-finish stain.We're remodeling a loft condo in the West Loop and knew we needed something special to recover the entire loft's floors, to tie it all together. We had 6 different flooring surfaces throughout the home. For install, we decided to go with SLC, to eliminate some ridges and valleys, and a double-stick glue install, using 1/4” cork underlayment.We have to break up the install into 2 parts, first part looks great! Looking forward to seeing the completed project later this year!
20:46 17 Mar 19
We installed PurezaWood in our new construction & LOVE it. James is very easy to work with & listens to your needs. We wanted a custom floor & they delivered.
15:55 19 Feb 19
We used PurezaWood for our new construction town home. The quality of the product was outstanding and James went above and beyond, delivering personal service to make our project a success. I would recommend anyone looking to do a flooring project give them a look before you make your choice. You won't regret it.
17:00 05 Feb 19
Very happy with PurezaWood. Excellent product and great service. James was very easy to work with and got us what we wanted at reasonable price and in a timeframe that met our needs (repairing after water damage). Also recommended a first rate installer who is now being used by a bunch of other people in our building as well. Might be cheaper places, but the premium product (unstained, engineered 5/8", 5" board) and the custom service made it a terrific value.
16:36 28 Dec 18
Great engineered floor at a very competitive price. Good service. Strongly recommended.
04:15 23 Nov 18
We used PurezaWood when we were replacing our damaged hardwood floors with wide plank engineered hardwood floors. The quality of the floors is outstanding and PurezaWood was able to get the exact color we wanted. We are so happy with the way our floors turned out and James from PurezaWood was so professional to work with. We highly recommended PurezaWood.
22:18 03 Oct 18
Fantastic product, and knowledgeable sales people who educate you and encourage you to compare their product against the big box stores. The installers did an excellent job of installing the floor and working with us to customize the color of the stain. We LOVE our new floors and highly recommend Purezawood and Pro Care Restoration. Great people, great product, and great installation!
09:37 01 Oct 18
I had a great experience with James and the gang at PurezaWe ordered a beautiful floor. There were a few hiccups that potentially affected our finish time, but Pureza went out of there way to take care of things and made sure we finished our job on timeI will definitely use them again and will recommend them to our clients.
15:39 12 Jun 18
the quality of their wood is top notch.. highly recommend. much cheaper than anything you can get in the city at this quality
05:37 06 Apr 18
Bought a new condo downtown and an interior designer recommended PurezaWood. I am so glad she did because the quality of their material was so much better than the other ones I have seen. I am glad I was able to buy luxury flooring at an affordable price!
21:34 10 Jul 17
The best hard wood floor that I can get. Very good quality material and professionals, friendly staff. The price is also very reasonable. Yoh guys are the best. Thank you.
19:22 29 Jun 17

I furnished three different apartments with this hardwood flooring, and I am really pleased with how easily the flooring installed. The floors are beautiful and seem very resilient, and the PurezaWood team was a pleasure to work with.
00:47 29 Jun 15
The quality of the floors are consistently impressive. Would highly recommend!
