Our Country product is one of our most popular products, and needs a bit of an introduction. Why is it called Country? The manufacturer takes all of their boards that have more color variation and places it in this collection. Many customers prefer this type of look over the more formal, straight-grained appearance of our Appalachian products. As an example, a Hickory floor with lots of color will have a very different appearance than a clearer floor. What is important here is that we help you find exactly what you want for your home!
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 Country Collection, like the Appalachian, 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!
In the lighter colors like Natural Hickory and White Oak, you will see quite a bit of color variation. In the darker colors such as Onyx and Ember the variation is much more subdued, but will add a layer of color that you won’t find in the Appalachian Collection.
