Our specialized hardwood flooring is direct from the sawmill, to our showroom, and straight to your home. By eliminating the middle-man, we are able to provide quality hardwood floors at a fraction of the cost. All unfinished flooring is 3/4" thick and available in 2 1/4", 3", 4" and 5" widths.
Hardwood flooring is "graded" according to distinct qualities present in the wood. The grade of the wood has nothing to do with the quality of the wood, it is simply sorted by its appearance based on the presence of knots and natural color variation. Please see the National Wood Flooring Association page for the grading guidelines that we follow. While this link refers to oak, similar rules apply for all types of flooring.
Birch features an almost wavy or curly grain that is very tight giving it a smoother more consistent appearance than some woods. Its color ranges from slightly yellow to pale blonde with darker closed in knot holes. It is a very gorgeous and durable wood ranking at a 1260 on the hardness scale.
