We're the experts in wood flooring and can help you understand the differences in our grades and cuts of wood. Share with us the details of your space and the vision you have for your floors, and we'll take it from there to help you select the best options for your needs.
  • Clear: clear wood is free of defects, though it may have minor imperfections.
  • Select: select wood is almost clear, but contains some natural characteristics such as knots and color variations. This is the most common choice for homeowners
  • Common: common wood (#1 and #2) has more natural characteristics such as knots and color variations than either clear or select grades, and often is chosen because of these natural features and the character they bring to a room. #1 Common has a variegated appearance, light and dark colors, knots, flags, and wormholes, whereas #2 Common is rustic in appearance and emphasizes all wood characteristics of the species.

  • Plain sawn: plain sawn, or flat sawn, is the most common cut. The board contains more variation than the other two cuts because grain patterns resulting from the growth rings are more obvious.

  • Quarter sawn: quarter sawing produces less board feet per log than plain sawing and is therefore more expensive. Quarter sawn wood twists and cups less and wears more evenly.

  • Rift sawn: rift sawn is similar to quarter sawing, but the cut is made at a slightly different angle.
