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 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks amazing, but handscrape is too rough for a swiffer sweeper I love the look of this floor, and it has great detail and character. However, you have to vacuum only as if you use a swiffer sweeper you'll have white fuzz stuck on every hand scraped patch. These hand scraped sections also stick to your socks. Recommend only walking on it with bare feet or hard bottom slippers to avoid disappointment. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great choice for softening the look of your home! This wood is durable and has about the most character you can get from a hardwood flooring product. Our homebuilder installed this for us in a brand new house with lots of modern accents (modern appliances, furniture, fixtures, cabinets, etc...) and this added a lived-in, feeling that made an otherwise colder design scheme feel lofty and loved. The hickory is VERY hard and resists nicks/scratches very well. I have scooted couches across this and not been able to see any blemishes. Heck, any blemishes you could manage to get in this floor just ADD to the character! Even small patches that the contractor had to touch up are unnoticeable due to the wide amount of natural variation. I'm sure do-it-yourself patches would be hard to notice unless the color was just in the wrong family. The River House color is a great accent to dark espresso or black woods as it has a slight reddish-gray hue with darker graining that picks up and highlights any wood you put with it (I'm sure even 90's blonde Oak would look great on it). There are a lot of rough patches where the knots are. I find this beautiful and practical as it keeps my family from losing grip while wearing socks around the house. Don't think you'll be sliding across this floor! The knots aren't TOO rough as to snag socks or dry dusting mops. Overall, I am very pleased with the rustic, sophisticated, and practical nature of this floor... I can't wait to see how it ages! June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very rustic, very nice looking floors We recently had the Armstrong Hickory American Scrape floors in the River House color installed in our entire first floor. We are very happy with the finished look of the product and the durable construction. We choose a floor with a more distressed finish because we have two dogs and the distressing helps to hide any scrapes or scratches caused by the dogs. This wood does have a lot of knots and rough patches, but that is one of the things we really liked about it. Our contractor did say he had trouble nailing in the boards because the wood is so hard, but overall the installation looks beautiful. April 16, 2014
