Our Country collection is an engineered floor that has a smooth finish, and a great product line, including both Natural and stained versions of species such as Maple, Hickory, and White Oak. This product is made in the USA.
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!
Our Blue Label grade allows knots, color variation, wormholes, etc, and will have an average board length that is less than the first quality. Expect boards to be between 12” and 72”, with an average around 24”. Order 10% extra so you can cull some of the defects that you don’t like.
