Board-to-Board Color Variation
Board-to-Board Color Variation

Wood is a natural material that features changes in color and tone. The board-to-board color variation is more pronounced in some species, less in others. If you like the look of contrasting light and dark tones, select a species that offers most color variation. If you prefer consistent color from board to board, choose the least color variation.

Hardness Scale
Hardness Scale

The density/hardness of the wood species and its ability to withstand foot traffic, children and pets will impact its wear performance, and will vary from species to species. Strong, resilient Oak is used as the industry benchmark. The hardness scale shown to the left shows the relative hardness of this wood species.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Very Good Choice In Engineered Flooring I installed this flooring about one year ago in our master bedroom. We had always wanted hardwood flooring in our home, but we have dogs. One is around 70 lbs and the other is 45 lbs. We obviously had major concerns regarding the impact that they would have on any hardwood flooring. We really liked the look of hand scraped hickory and decided to take a chance in one room. After nearly one year of use I can report that the floor looks as good as the day I put it down. If I get down on my hands and knees and look carefully I can see some very light scratches here and there. Having said that it is important to know that my wife keeps our dogs nails trimmed and filed to lesson their impact on the flooring. I would have given this flooring 5 stars except that the quality control is not excellent. I encountered several boards that had debris that was not cleaned off prior to the seal coat application. You need to check each board before you install them. Also, if you need to reverse directions during your install (ex. to go back into a closet) be aware that the bottom edge of the groove side of the boards protrudes further out than the top. You will need to trim that bottom edge the get a flush fit on the top surface. This was my first DYI hardwood flooring install and I am very happy with the results. I will be purchasing more flooring to continue this install into other areas of my home. March 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful with unexpected surprises Our approximately 1000 sq ft house now has this beautiful flooring throughout (with the exception of the bathroom). The color is warm and absolutely beautiful. I won't rate durability, quality (though it appears to be of high quality) or ease of installation because I haven't had it long enough to judge the first two and we had it installed professionally. Surprise! Originally we chose this wood because we thought it would be forgiving due to the hand scraping and grain. When we inevitably drop something or in some way mark the wood, we want that to not be a glaring scar. The grain is lovely and to our surprise the floor has dark grain patterns and marks that the sample did not show, but is hinted at in the swatch on this website. There are very dark streaks and spots that some people may not like. We think they add a great deal of character to the wood and will make this a forgiving floor. I've included pictures. If you choose this floor, I hope you love it as much as we do. August 28, 2013
