What are Flooring Grades?

Each grade of flooring has its own unique characteristics and style. Some grades contain more grain, more knots and look more natural and rustic. Some are cleaner and more polished for an elegant look and feel.

A&B Grade

A&B grade is the cleanest Grade for hardwood flooring. Meaning there are minimal/ smaller knots, less grain and minimal sap because it is cut from the center of the log. This Grade often has a shorter line for colour variation because it is a natural selection.

ABC Grade
