HomerWood is famous for creating unique hardwood floors that stand out from traditional companies. All their
floors are handcrafted with painstaking precision by Amish artisans who live in the Titusville, Pa. area. In
2009, HomerWood introduced 30 new colors to their range along with wire brushed textures, and in 2010, the
company's Titusville plant received the Forest Stewardship Council's Chain of Custody certification. They offer

HomerWood was founded in 1984 and began as a small company with just four employees. In 1991, a fire destroyed the entire company which caused the owners of the company to go in a different direction.
In 2004, Amish artisans in the area were recruited and their ability to style and craft individual planks was designed to distinguish HomerWood products from other companies. Armstrong World Industries acquired the company in 2006 which increased HomerWood's profile and the company has been growing ever since.
