As part of a monthly blog series, we would like introduce some of our trusted vendors and suppliers. Chase Custom Homes & Finance has been working with many of these companies for more than a decade and each supplier is a key part of the homebuilding process. We wouldn’t be able to do it without them!
The beautiful hardwood flooring in our new homes comes from Kennebec Lumber, a company that’s been building a family-operated, Maine-based business for 19 years and counting. Based in Central Maine, Kennebec Lumber now employs more than 100 men and women.
Kennebec Lumber began producing flooring in 2005, and is the maker of the Maine Traditions Hardwood brand. Maine Traditions Hardwood produces pre-finished, unfinished and engineered flooring, in a range of species, including red oak, hard maple, yellow birch, red birch, American cherry and hickory.
The Maine Traditions Hardwood line is distributed by Independence Flooring Supply in Westrook, Maine. Chase Custom Homes & Finance works closely with Independence Flooring Supply to find the perfect hardwood product to fit our customer’s needs.
What makes your products superior/of the highest quality?
Chantal Callahan, Marketing Manager of Maine Traditions Hardwood (MTH): “Our lumber is cut and milled in Maine, then transformed into flooring of superior quality. Because the raw material is grown in the cool Northern Woods, the slow growth of the trees produces lumber with unique grain and character. And minerals in the area’s soil create color that uniquely enhances the beauty of our flooring. We take pride in producing our products from sustainably managed forest products, some of which have been managed by the family for over three generations.”
What do you enjoy most about working with Chase Custom Homes?
MTH: “We sell our flooring products through Independence Floor Supply. They have a great representation of our entire product lineup, and expertise to follow!”
