        Comments about R.L. Colston 3/4" x 3 1/4" Maple:

        This maple flooring is great. We are not going to have to sand or condition the wood before staining it. It went in easily and the pieces of wood were very straight and smooth. We will only have a couple of spots to sand where there is an arrow stamped onto the finished side and there are only a couple of joints that are barely off (only noticeable to the hand when you run your hand over it). The floor is so smooth that you can slide across it and that is before staining or the polyurethane coat. It looks great too. It was easy to install until we came to the last two rows and the closet. Those two rows and entry way to the closet were not so easy but doable.

            It's hard to impossible to find a light gray maple unfinished. I wanted to stain my maple but was worried about the unfinished product I would receive. The quality was excellent, and I have the light gray maple--finished myself--that I wanted.

              Comments about R.L. Colston 3/4" x 3 1/4" Maple:

              Very high quality wood and uniform color for select grade. Floors came out beautiful!

              We used a professional installer and a custom stain color.

              Do some research though on staining maple. Although the boards have light grain and uniform in color, maple will mottle and show flames. We like the color variations, but just be aware of this. Also it is difficult to get the exact color you want. You will be somewhat though dependent on what the maple will give you - so it is important to do sample testing of colors on the boards to see what it will look like. Custom color staining may be best left to do by a professional. Our color is Early American with some red and clear added.

              90 % of the order came on 2-3 ft length . Absolutely not as I expected. the average probable is 2 feet.
              AND - unfortunately was NOT previously mentioned to me by Lumber Liquidators Web page specs. nor the Store.

              Service and delivery comments:

              again.... independently of my previous comments about the average length piece....> Tony & crew on Long Island city , NY 11103 are excellent . They truly understand what " Customer Service" stand for. Thank you

                            Can this product be installed in a sub-basement? The house's inside temp will be kept consistent. I just want to be sure this product is able to be installed in a basement type environment. The house is in North Dakota (eastern) and it can get humid during the summer time; however, the AC will keep the house temperatures from fluctuating too much. Thanks for any help!

                              Yes, however we approve basement installation of solid hardwood flooring installed with Elastilon as your installation system. Elastilon Self Adhesive Underlayment is a good option for any flat subfloor. You can use up to 3/4" thick or thinner solid or tongue and groove engineered flooring (works best with 1/2" or thicker). Floating with Elastilon needs to have an expansion break for spans over 33' on it's width, but not length.

                              Elastilon - www.lumberliquidators.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=7504

                            if I lay this floor over a plywood subfloor will it be even or will I have to sand? I am planning on installing this myself. Does this sound do-able?

                              Unfinished flooring require site sanding and finishing. We do not have comprehensive information on finishing available online. Companies like Bona Kemi have excellent products, equipment, and some information for finishing floors (http://www.bona.com/en/US/Craft/).

                              Our installation service HSS installs but at this time does not finish unfinished flooring. They can recommend a finisher or; Go to WWW.NWFACP.ORG and click on sand and finisher and then type in a zip code or city/state. These are NWFA certified installers and finishers.

                            Hello,
                            I want to install Maple 3 ¼ down the Cape in MA where it’s more humid/wet. There is crawl space underneath. Although Maple is stronger than Red Oak, Maple has lower stability for its expansion-due-to-moisture factor. I am going with wider planks – 3 ¼. Will I have any problems with Maple swelling up? Am I better off with Red Oak for this type of environment?

                            Thanks

                            Am I able to lay this flooring on top of a cement slab? I live in Southern California with low humidity and mild temps.
                            Thanks

                              This is a 3/4" unfinished solid nail down product and it would not be advisable for this application.
