Clear – A mostly heartwood flooring product that allows all the natural heartwood color variations with minimal character marks and limited color variation. This combination features the infinitely variable grain patterns with the minimal distraction from character marks and color variation.
Select & Better – Limited character marks and a wide range of color. Contains all the variations in coloration produced by the contrasting differences of heartwood and sapwood. Also included are minimal character marks, such as small knots, worm holes, and mineral streaks, as well as slightly open characters. The combination creates a floor where the light sapwood and dark heartwood are combined with small characters and other small color interruptions.
Second & Better – This grade is comparable to a mixture of Select & Better and No. 1 Common grading.
No.1 Common – A little more character than Select & Better – More natural wood characteristics – including small closed knots, worm holes, open checks, color variation, along with machining and drying variations. No. 1 Common is a tasteful floor where prominent variation is expected.
No. 2 Common or Rustic Grade- The most character of them all – this grade allows for knot holes, open worm holes, very dark stains, and other natural characteristics, along with prominent color variations. Manufacturing variations include drying characters and machining irregularities. No. 2 Common is most desirable for applications where numerous notable character marks and prominent color contrast is desired.
No. 3 Common or Shorts- Utility Grade
Please note that each wood flooring is graded differently.
