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 Quality engineering, beautiful finished product, minimal waste We selected this product for the entrance foyer when the house was first built 14 years ago. I then used the same Laurel Oak for our den right off the foyer and installed it myself in 2007. Now, in 2013, I installed the same product in the living room. This is a 15x25 living room, 375 square feet. At 20 square feet per case, the room measures out to needing 18.75 cases. I fully used 19 cases, so there is minimal waste product in the cases. There are possibly one or two boards per case that are a little out of alignment, but you can usually fit them in easily. The pieces lock together beautifully and even if they don't seem to fit with a full tightness after banging them in place with a mallet, once you hit it with the floor nailer, they grab right into place. Installation is not for the faint of heart, but it can be done by someone with moderate DIY and carpentry skills. You need the right tools. Buy the Flooring Nailer from Harbor Freight. It is a great deal at full price, but keep your eye out for coupons and discounts. I got mine for $120. It beats renting one from your local retailer. Now, I'll sell it on Craig's List for a steep discount so that someone will buy it, and then pocket the savings. For this space, including flooring and trim work it took me about 28 hours. It will go much quicker if you have two people working the install as one can be nailing a row while the next person is racking up the next row. Regarding finish, we have two dogs and have for all 14 years on that hall foyer and there are no scratches to the finish. I'm not a fanatic about cleaning (!), but the product looks beautiful all the time. We have a Roomba that vacuums on a daily basis to keep the dog hair from flying, but other than that, this Bruce floor just keeps looking wonderful. The variety of tones in each case varies, so you know it's real wood with real grain and color. The varieties blend together in beautiful harmony. Excellent product; highly recommend.
