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

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dont buy this floor! The stain and finish easily comes off. I bought this flooring around 10 years ago. I put it throughout my 3100 square foot home. Within the first year, my floor started losing its stain/finish. They claim the stain/finish process is hardened and sealed into the wood, that is simply not true from my experience. My painter was doing some painting throughout the house and his special blue tape that is safe on all surfaces, removed the stain and finfish on my floor leaving a big blonde maple looking spot that could be seen from the other room. This continued to happen in various parts of the house. My daughter had a party and some candy was stepped on into the floor. When we cleaned up to remove it, it removed the stain and finish int the shape of the candy. My dogs nails, scratch the service easily and we keep her nails clipped regulary. We have wwooden chairs with felt protectors and they still remove the stain and finish. Theirs nothing scientific about this special stain/urethane finish. Its nothing more than a thin coat of sprayed on stain.urethane that apparently doesnt stick well to the maple floor. Nice idea that does not work. Its a shame, everytime sojmeone walks into my home they compliment me on the floors but then they see all the blonde maple scratch marks and spots and realize the deficiency in the product.
