    Comments about 3/4" x 3-1/4" Utility Oak:

    We did the entire house in this wood, and we have a large house (3000sq ft). Less the bathrooms, kitchen, laundry and entrance, the entire house is done in the utility oak. The price can't be beat, and it looks beautiful installed. We are almost done with the install but have not stained yet. We started It as a DIY project, but it took too long, as many pieces have to be cut or are small. We finished by paying a person hourly. I can say that I love it and know it will be beautiful stained. It was well worth the money and effort. We did buy the recommended 20% extra, but so far we have had very little waste. A few pieces were warped and had to be cut to remove that section, but we have not thrown a single piece away.

        Best Uses

        • DIY-er
        • Workshop floor

        Comments about 3/4" x 3-1/4" Utility Oak:

        I had a 1200 sq ft workshop that I needed covered with wood. The utility oak was the logical choice and I planned ahead by ordering 2000ft. The material arrived in 2 lots, each about half of the total quantity. It was very apparent that the 2 loads came from different sawmills.

        The first lot consisted of seemingly regular runs of hardwood floor, albeit a bit more figured/grained/rustic than normal flooring. The second lot was truly awful, with all pieces being between 8 and 14 inches. And every piece longer than 16" was split or completely unusable in some way. The pieces from the different loads were made just off such that they couldn't be used together without modifying the tongues/grooves slightly.

        So I got as far as I could with the better load (about 2/3) and started using the second load last. The tiny pieces were truly maddening. Finally I went to the local big box hardware store and purchased 2 bundles of their oak floor to mix into the last 1/3 so I could have a few longer boards.

        Overall, the waste on the first lot was no more than 1/4. The waste on the second lot was at least a solid 1/2. If the whole lot had been like the first load, I would give this flooring 5 stars, buy as much of it as I could, and start my own discount oak flooring installation company. But if the whole lot had been like the second load, I would have given it 1 star, built an expensive bonfire, and given up on hardwood floors forever. I feel it was a good gamble for me and I even have enough leftover to do the 400ft loft space too.

        It takes TIME to sort through all the flooring to find usable pieces. And lots of SPACE is needed to lay all the pieces out and inspect them for defects. Both of these factors should be considered. And of course you have to find something to do with all the pieces you can't use. This is where value really comes into play. If I had paid for better flooring, it certainly would have taken less time. When time is money, this is a very serious consideration.

        Something kind of obnoxious: the flooring was marked "PROMO" in wax crayon on the faces of many of the pieces. Had it not been for this, the floor would not have needed any sanding and would have been ready for finish as soon as it was installed.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I picked up the flooring in 2 loads in a cargo van from the warehouse. The associates at the warehouse were helpful and friendly. They were happy to help load the van, proficient in forklift operation, and conscientious of my time.

          I used this bundle to make a set of media shelves, the various lengths and differences in grain created a great looking unit. With red mahogany stain-varnish it has a great "presents" and will hold about 200 CD's plus the literature. This was also my first project with pocket joinery, and I'm glad to say it went well!

              Comments about 3/4" x 3-1/4" Utility Oak:

              We used this flooring in our office. The plan was to stain and paint a checkerboard pattern on it, so we wanted unfinished, cheap hardwood. We originally were going to use subfloor, but found this solid hardwood that cost about the same. We were so excited. The floor looks great. Yes, there were pieces with holes or missing tongues, but most pieces worked well and the holes added to the charm of the floor.

                  A:

                  Tavern or Utility



                  This product comes in square-edge or v-groove and may be mixed product. Will have defects, knots, open knots, missing tongues, machine burns, splits in the wood and short pieces (12"-8"). No returns allowed. Cabin, tavern, or utility grade hardwood can provide a low-cost option in hardwood. When purchasing this grade be sure to add 20%-25% to complete the project.





                  SUMMARY: Tavern Grade flooring will contain significant variations in wood coloration and character; however, such imperfections should still provide a serviceable floor. Tavern grade has the lowest average board length of all standard wood grades.

                  DETAILED: Tavern grade flooring will admit a limited amount of unfilled and unfinished open characters including open knots, splits, or cracks. Severely mis-manufactured boards, shattered or rotten ends, pieces with less than ¼tongue, or other unsound defects of a similar nature are typically not permitted. Tavern grade pre-finished flooring will contain a limited amount of pieces with finish irregularities including, but not limited to: bubbles, finish skips or lines, severe streaks, stain/color variation, surface handling scratches, and grainy surface/debris. When assembled, Tavern grade flooring may exhibit gapping that exceeds 0.031”and end/side over-wood(e.g. height variation between adjacent boards) that exceeds 0.030”.



                  NOTE: This grade description is intended only to provide general characteristics of the identified wood grade, and is not all-inclusive. Specific wood characteristics and acceptance criteria may vary by wood species. A 5% allowance per box is established for pieces exhibiting one or more milling, grading, or finishing defects.

                IF A PLANK IS MISSING A TONGUE, CAN IT BE FACE NAILED TO HOLD THE BOARD IN PLACE? OR IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO MAKE SURE THE PLANK WILL STAY SECURE?

                  A:

                  If a plank is missing a tongue on the long side use it on the last row installed by the wall. Planks that are missing a tongue on the short side can be installed if needed to complete the job, but try to make the job a complete tongue and groove installation if you can. You can also use a 3/4" hardwood router bit to make a groove and then use a spline molding to make that groove a tongue.

                  A:

                  Any natural colored wood filler will work well on this product. These are available at all home centers and hardware stores. You want to use a filler that dries after applied so it can be sanded and finished, flexible fillers will not work.

                  A:

                  If you want to install 3/4" hardwood wood flooring over a slab you will have to build up a floating plywood system. Make sure the slab is clean, level, and dry. Install 6 mil poly sheeting over the slab, and then install a layer of 3/8" plywood floated over the poly. Next, install another layer of 3/8" plywood at an angle or perpendicular to the first layer of plywood and screw the two layers together. Install #15 felt over the plywood and then install the flooring using 1 1/2" L cleats or staples. Another method would be to install the flooring onto our Elastilon underlayment.
