All of our real wood floors will have their own individual set of official grading rules set out by the factory. These grading rules will detail the exact grading allowance allowed within that floor. If you require a copy prior to purchase then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is a brief summary of our grades.
Rustic, ABCD, Traditional, Living
Rustic, ABCD & Living grade floors will contain larger knots plus many natural characteristics found in real wood flooring such as sap and mineral streaks. A traditional grade floor is typically more knotty than Rustic.
Classic, ABC, Character, Nature
Classic, ABC, Character, Nature grade floors will contain some knots plus natural characteristics such as sap and mineral streaks. These floors will be slightly cleaner looking than a Rustic grade but still have all the natural beauty real wood offers.
AB & Select ABc
AB & Select ABc grade floors will be fairly clean with some smaller knots plus some natural characteristics such as sap and mineral streaks.
Prime grade floors will be very clean looking with some small pin knots at best. These floors will however still contain some natural characteristics such as sap and mineral streaks.
