Sheoga Hardwood Flooring was founded in 1982. The flooring company began as an off-shoot of the Hardwood Lumber Company from Station Road in Burton. Stephen Trudick and his wife Lee worked hard to cultivate a lumberyard and sawmill for the local community. In the early 80s, they recognized the need for a quality flooring producer and decided to expand their business. Steve asked Pete Miller to head the new company and sold shares to raise capital for equipment. In 1994, a new manufacturing facility was built on Burton-Windsor Road, including 4,000 square feet of showrooms and offices and 30,000 square feet of manufacturing space. By then, sales were expanding throughout the US and the international division had opened relationships in the Czech Republic and Singapore.
Many expansions and equipment purchases have occurred in the last 36 years, with the Sheoga team expanding to 76 individuals from the local communities. We are blessed to source our lumber from many local sawmills who are harvesting lumber from the Appalachian regions – places were forests are sustainable and their growth outweighs the losses from harvesting, fires and natural death. We are one of only six companies in the US certified under the NWFA RPP (National Wood Flooring Association’s Responsible Procurement Program) guidelines and FSC® Certified and we are audited annually by a third-party to ensure compliance. We are committed to a program that preserves our forests for future generations.
Operations expanded in 2013 to include a second manufacturing facility and we added a new product line of ¾” engineered flooring. This flooring utilizes a cross-grain plywood substrate with a thick veneer to enable glue-down applications on concrete and for homes situated in very high- or very low-humidity environments. The 5.25mm thick veneer enables the flooring to be sanded and re-finished multiple times during the lifetime in your home. All Sheoga flooring is available in Unfinished or Prefinished styles, with the options of various textures and stains/finishes.
Sheoga is committed to our community by sponsoring local events and working with charities: the Geauga Growth Partnership’s Intern Program, Santa’s Hide-away Hollow, UH Geauga Medical Center and the Gary Sinise Foundation — providing flooring for specially adapted smart homes for critically wounded combat veterans and their families.
