Mayflower - 3/4" x 2-1/2" Utility Chocolate Maple Prefinished Solid Flooring- 5 Year Warranty

Maple floors are exceptionally beautiful, fine-textured, tough and dent resistant. The heartwood has creamy white color tones to light reddish brown, and sapwood is a pale creamy white.
Because of Maple's unique characteristics and durability, it has been the flooring choice for high traffic spaces such as bowling alleys, basketball courts, dance floors, and schools just to name a few.
Imagine how well it performs in kitchens, dining rooms, and kid's bedrooms!
Maple will offer you great durability, beauty, and will get your neighbors talking.

What is "Utility Grade?"
Utility grade flooring will have defects, knots, open knots, missing tongues, machine burns, splits in the wood and short pieces (12"-8").

Hardwood floors can be cleaned more thoroughly than carpeting, and they have a very durable surface that is easy to maintain.
When properly cared for, hardwood floors are extremely resistant to mildew and other types of problems associated with carpeting.

  • Q:

    looking at putting a wood floor in our double wide home in our vacation home in Wisconsin. Will the fact that we keep heat at 50 when we are not there in winter and turn air off in summer when we are not there going to be a problem? Do you need a expansion stop in a big room? how many feet? we are doing an area about 650 sq feet-living-kitchen-hall-dining. Do you need any other underlayment other than plywood?

      All of our flooring products are designed to be installed in climate controlled environment.
      Being a natural product it will be subject to the effects of temperature and humidity. If proper heat and humidity levels are not maintained your flooring may shift, shrink, expand, gap or buckle.

      All wood products are affected by environmental conditions, especially prefinished materials.
      To control wood movement- expansion or shrinkage- it is recommended to acclimate the new flooring in the areas to be installed, not in (garages, U-Haul trailers, sheds, or tents) to normal lived-in conditions while in the boxes. If the products are protected in plastic then open the ends of the boxes. Length of time is not the determining factor. The goal of acclimation is for the core of the product to reach an equilibrium or moisture balance of the new flooring with its surroundings before installation or fastening. This balance could be achieved in as little as 1 to 5 days, or longer for some dense or oily exotic species.

      Avoid shocking the floor.
      Just like you, wood actually performs best with consistent indoor temperatures of 60°-80° F and indoor humidity levels of 30% - 50%. Very dry or humid regions of the country usually require extended conditioning. Maintaining the recommended acclimation levels even after the installation should be viewed as ongoing floor care. Your doing so will help to minimize board movement, excessive squeaks, finish cracking and gaps.

      Hygrometers sold in most Target and Wal-Mart stores ($10-$45) can be used to easily identify the need to regulate the humidity or air moisture.
      In addition, to prevent board warping or bowing, do not cut the plastic support bindings on the outside of the packaging until ready to install. Store products flat, in a dry place. Provide air flow under and around cartons. Do not store directly on bare concrete or next to outside walls. Cartons should be placed as close to the center of the installation area as possible.

      Proper jobsite conditions, acclimation and moisture testing of the subfloor along with the new flooring all works together for the success of the installation and is the responsibility of those overseeing the project.
