From Hollywood down to San Diego, customization was the most critical feature we found in our Southern Californian customers.  Amtico products were the landslide favorite with their large selection of colors and design options. 



For our Southern customers, the classic warmth and family friendly feel of Unfinished Hickory and Red Birch were the favorites.  These customers want to use these unfinished products for their personal projects, especially for large scale projects over 1500 sq. ft. and new construction.
