Maple Select and Better Grade (1st Grade) Unfinished Solid Hardwood Flooring will have a mostly white appearance almost completely free of any knots or mineral streaks. Our Maple unfinished solid wood flooring is milled by MFMA (Maple Flooring Manufactures Association) Standards allowing for very small board to board variation in color. The highest standard grade combines appearance and durability. Hardwood Floor Depot provides Maple Select and Better Grade that is also processed to NWFA (National Wood Flooring Association) Rules allowing exceptionally negligible character marks yet is known to be extremely predictable in overall color and grain variety throughout the entire wood flooring giving a spotless appearance.
Maple flooring is harder and more durable than almost any other type of hardwood flooring and is great for high traffic areas. Hardwood Floor Depot works solely with NWFA certified manufacturers that start the milling process with wood that is kiln dried for 30 days at 180-350 degrees giving more prominent strength and quality to our material. Maple hardwood flooring is the second strongest Domestic wood available. Hardwood Floor Depot offers our Maple Select and Better Grade flooring in 1’-10′ random length bundles. Average board lengths will run 5’ to 5 ½’ with longer lengths available at request. The flooring will have a four-sided tongue and groove for ease of installation. Recommended waste factor for this grade is between 8%-10%.
