R.L. Colston- 3/4" x 2-1/4 Hickory Unfinished Square Edge Solid Hardwood Flooring

R.L. Colston & Sons offers traditional 3/4" unfinished solid hardwood floors in a variety of species in 2-1/4" to 5" widths.

Hickory greatly separates itself from other wood species by its great color variation which begins from light tan to reddish/ dark brown tones with dramatic grain patterns.
Its unique rustic appearance, the combination of its hard density and moderate coarse open grain, make it just as appropriate in a contemporary high rise loft as it is in a log cabin.
It is also ideal for high traffic areas and kid's rooms.

Please note unfinished flooring is sold in open, strapped bundles and not sold in boxes.  This product  must be purchased in bundles.  Bundle size may vary.

What is "Natural Grade?"
Natural Grade has some color variation, mineral coloring and small knots. It can also be referred to as #1 or 2nd grade.

    • Q:

      I would like to install this over an above grade concrete slab using elastilon. Are the short ends grooved? From what I understand, the short ends need to be glued and if they aren't grooved, the product isn't compatible with an installation using elastilon. Also, am I able to sand and finish this floor if installed in this manner? Thanks.

        Yes this flooring is end-matched (tongue and grooved).
        Yes this floor can be sanded and finished over Elastilon.

    • Q:

      This product says "square edge" rather than tongue and does that affect installation? I don't see how you can blind nail it without the tongue.

        R.L. Colston-3/4" x 2-1/4 Hickory Unfinished has a tongue and groove profile. The "Square Edge" refers to the top edge treatment, for example most pre-finished flooring has a beveled edge.

    • Q:

      Is it a good idea to install hickory in a kitchen area? If so, what sort of finish works best? I do not want to change the color in any way but would like something that would resist water, pets and children.

        Unfinished Hickory is fine in a kitchen however the finish you choose will determine how well it holds up. Our pre-finished hickory will work well. Today's hardwood finishes are most durable and are applied in a quality controlled environment. We offer several pre-finish coatings, whereas most site-finished floors -sanded and finished at the job site- would only have two or three coats applied, then these must be air dried.

        There are more advantages than disadvantages of pre-finished materials. Nearly all pre-finished hardwood floors will have beveled edges to some extent. On the other hand, site finished flooring will have more types of finish choices and a flawless uniform appearance when sanded. Many people with health concerns or respiratory issues choose pre-finished floors because these are installed without the usual sanding dust and fumes commonly associated with site finished floors. Another benefit is that these can be installed and walked on the same day!

        Our Bellawood floors are factory pre-finished with an aluminum oxide water-base urethane using a multi-step application process. (8) coats are applied to most domestic and exotic wood species and each coat is hard-cured using Ultraviolet (UV) light. Bellawood pre-finished flooring offers superior wear resistance and is backed by a limited 100-year warranty! Maintaining the appearance of any wood floor requires close attention to in-door climate controls during seasonal changes.

        Therefore, whether you choose one of our many “pre-finished” or “un-finished styles, we will have a floor for you. Let us know how we can help with your selection.

      How do I care for this product, ie cleaning. How often should I refinish this product.

        This is an unfinished wood product and will need to be sanded and finished after installation.
        We can only recommend our Bellawood Floor Cleaner, or cleaners that are safe for water based urethane finishes. Never use any polish, wax, oil soaps or cleaners that add shine to the floor.
        Resurfacing will depend on the amount on wear in your home.

      Is this product FSC certified?

        Lumber Liquidators is not FSC certified, but many of the vendors we get our products from are FSC certified.
        Lumber Liquidators offers flooring brands that practice responsible harvesting. People that make their living in timber know the importance of sustaining healthy forests. Without a well-planned growth cycle, they simply are out of business. Tree cutting is monitored very carefully within a selective cutting and replanting strategy. At Lumber Liquidators, we believe hardwood flooring is a natural, healthy choice—for both you and the environment.
        What is managed forestry? Flooring mills must submit harvesting plans to the local government for approval. As a part of this process, they map and grid the land affected and take an inventory of the trees (size and species) in each grid. The government will then approve the plan and the mills must cut to it. There are limitations on the number and size of each species that can be harvested from each grid and then they must move to the next grid. Once a grid is harvested, they cannot go back there until 30 years has passed. Most mills will participate in re-foresting (planting new) even though they are not required to.
