Solid Wood floors 

Solid wood flooring is crafted from a single piece of hardwood lumber. Whether it is made of Red Oak, White Oak, Hickory, or Maple, our Solid Hardwood floors are all ¾ of an inch thick with random lengths.

Engineered hardwood floors.

This type of hardwood flooring is constructed to be much more stable than solid floors in areas that experience large humidity swings throughout the year. The definition of engineered hardwood flooring from the National Wood Flooring Association Engineered wood floors are real wood floors that are manufactured using three to nine layers of different wood veneers. The sub layers can be of the same species, or of different species. The grain of each layer runs in different directions, which makes it very stable. This means that the wood will expand and contract less than solid wood flooring during fluctuations in humidity and temperature. The top layer of engineered wood flooring consists of high-quality wood. While this type of flooring can be sanded and finished, it cannot be done as many times as solid wood flooring. Engineered wood flooring can be installed above, on or below grade. While most engineered flooring is installed over concrete subfloors, a growing percentage of above grade installations are utilizing engineered flooring because of the higher demand for wider boards .

Utility Grade

The lowest grade of all pre-finished flooring, this grade accepts anything; short pieces, sander burns, splits, large knots, pieces missing a tongue on one end, any and all of these can be in a box of utility grade wood. That being said, it is still pre-finished, solid wood at half the cost of unfinished wood flooring. You will need to figure 20% waste and you should get a serviceable floor.

Tavern, Cabin, or Country Grade

While tavern will not have a warranty, NOFMA guidelines say it must be 95% useable. A small amount of unfilled knots, as well as small finish defects like skips, color variations, scratches and bubbles are allowed. Mis-manufactured boards are not allowed. For the most part, tavern grade has shorter board lengths, more color variation, small dings, and a lower price. Keep in mind this was graded out of # 1 grade wood, one board at a time.

Outlet Grade

This grade usually has the same appearance of #1 and better wood. The defects in this grade are hard to see, most likely from a missed specification. Maybe the first quality product has a 40% gloss and this came out 50%. Maybe the stain was off a bit, not matching the master color. This material is pulled after all aesthetic grading has been done, leaving a floor with very few visual defects. Another common defect is width/height variation. To be included in #1 Common, a variation of up to .020 is allowed. For variations of .020 to .075, Outlet is the correct grade. Anything over .075 goes into Utility.

#1 Common and Better Grade

This grade makes up about 80% of the tree, so it is the most commonly used for flooring. Containing #1 Common, Select and Clear, the board lengths are longer, less variation in color, and natural defects such as knots and checks are minimal.

#2 Common Grade

While only about 2% of the tree, #2 Common is quite popular as a floor. With no defects, this is a first quality floor. It does contain more variation in color, a shorter average board length, as well as knots up to 3/8”.
