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 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by American Scrape-Hickory Cajun Spice I researched hardwood flooring for months before purchasing this product. I began looking for hardwood flooring and due to the many different products from more manufactures then you can count, I couldn't make a decision. I then began looking at tile and then vinyl and back to hardwoods.. What a big waste of time.. No manufacture makes this easy.. I was all but ready to give up, when I stopped at a small independent flooring retailer. I was able to take large samples home to compare and they had contacts with the manufactures to get the answers I was needing. I gave them guidelines such as engineered wood, trees grown in USA, flooring made in USA, 3/8 inch, hand scrapped, floating with glue joints.I had even given them a price range, however at this point, pricing was secondary.After reading many reviews about the floors scratching or denting and even just rolling the fridge across it, I was pretty worried. Let me just say this, that is all BS.. Buy a good produce and you will really enjoy it.. We had a few boards with cracks and knots, but no biggie.. Just make sure you buy a little extra so you don't have to use them.. With all this said, the questions many people would really want to know, would I buy this produce again. I would buy this flooring without looking at any other flooring on the market.. My advise is to stay away from the big box stores, don't buy online, buy USA products, and take the reviews with a grain of salt. January 11, 2014
