Dear Waterlox Fan,As the Blizzard of 2011 finally comes to a close, leaving behind freezing temperatures and layers of snow and ice through much of the country, it is also time to acknowledge that the home improvement season is now underway.And while we continue to explore the many ways that Waterlox Original Tung oil finishes can support you, we also take a look back at Cleveland’s rich history as a paint and varnish hub in the United States. 

Feature Article: The History of Cleveland
As a Paint and Varnish Hub
Cleveland

This week’s feature article explores the rich history of Cleveland as a longtime paint and varnish hub. The strong industrial base that the city boasts today can be traced back well into the early part of the 20th Century.

To a large degree, the growth of Cleveland and much of what exists here today can be attributed to its industrial base. The United States was an early leader and Cleveland a major center of industrialization. Strategically located, Cleveland developed because it offered one business benefit few other commerce centers at the time could – access to different transportation networks. Read the entire feature article on the Waterlox Blog.

When Remodeling Wood Flooring, Use Waterlox Original Interior Tung Oil Finishes

As you look at your “honey-do” list of home improvement projects to tackle this winter, enhancing your home with wood floors should be at the top of the list. The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) states that in a national survey of real estate agents, 90 percent said that houses with wood flooring sell faster and for higher prices than houses without wood floors.
 

In addition, no products protect wood flooring better than Waterlox Original Tung oil finishes. To learn more about how best to apply Waterlox finishes for your wood flooring application, click HERE.
 

Q&A: Do I Need to Finish All Sides
of My Countertop?
 

In a perfect world, all six sides of a countertop could be coated to slow down moisture intrusion.  No matter what process is used to finish wood, checking and warping can never be completely stopped or prevented because wood needs to be able to expand and contract. Further it is impossible to completely encapsulate a piece of wood.

We will be delivering Reclaimed  Antique Heart Pine materials  to Mt. Vernon Estate (George Washington’s Residence) tomorrow to rebuild slave quarters and gates. 

This is just one of many Historical treasures that E.T. Moore supplies premium materials. 

This will not be part of any “stimulus package” as they did it the old fashion way; they EARNED it.

New Housing start for E. T. Moore Homes LLC

We are breaking ground in Viniterra. We are excited to be a part of this great project. Our new home for sale on lot 88, will be custom created by E. T. Moore Manufacturing, Inc., from the footers to the roof shingles. We plan to use a combination of Antique Heart Pine, Reclaimed chestnut, Chinese Elm and other rare woods for Flooring, Beams and millwork.  Old growth sinker cypress and live edge Juniper for siding and exterior trim framing the antique brickwork.  Please check for progress on this magnificent home.
