Our Appalachian Collection is interesting in that it is made with the highest grade of lumber. The Appalachian products will exhibit less color variation than literally almost any product on the market, while including domestic exotic species like Hickory, Hard Maple, and White Oak.
The construction of these floors also sets them apart. Firstly, we utilize a 7 layer hardwood core that is ½” thick. This results in a harder, more stable floor than almost anything on the market. Then we add the top layer of face sawn hardwood. What is special about face sawn? Most engineered floors are made with rotary peeled veneers, which have a higher yield. While this saves money, it results in a visual that is different from a typical hardwood floor. Our Appalachian Collection, like the Country, Antique, and Color Plank, all use face sawn techniques. And you can tell the difference! These floors are cut just like a solid hardwood floor, so they look like a hardwood floor…..like they should!
