Australian hardwood flooring is the traditional timber flooring option and is the product that engineered flooring tries to replicate.
In addition to a variety of species Australian Hardwood comes in a range of grades and widths and thicknesses.
GRADING OPTIONS FOR TIMBER FLOORING.
Along with a variety of sizes, our solid timber flooring is also available in a variety of grades. Below is a brief description of the three common grades available in timber flooring:
SELECT GRADE: Timber contains little to no natural imperfection. Boards are chosen carefully to comply with strict Australian Standards. Depending on individual species, Select Grade has a much more uniform appearance and has a very clean look.
STANDARD GRADE: Timber contains slight to moderate natural imperfections. These imperfections can include timber’s natural features (ie. Gum Knots, Gum Veins, etc.) Depending on individual species, Standard Grade has a little more colour variation between the boards and can have a slightly lower length specification. Pricing is slightly cheaper than Select Grade.
FEATURE GRADE: Timber flooring in a Feature Grade has a very rustic appearance. All natural features and imperfections are permitted. Feature Grade timber flooring is the lowest priced grade. Depending on individual species, colour variation between the boards can be heavy and can contain sapwood. Visit Market Timbers – your local Timber Flooring Melbourne specialist!
