R.L. Colston- 3/4" x 3-1/4 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.

Unfinished flooring sold in open, strapped bundles and not sold in boxes.

No warranty

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.

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

          I installed 1,100 sq ft of the Hickory this past week. Quality of the wood itself exceeded my expections. Quality of the milling exceeded my expectations. I had also purchased a Norge 15 gauge nailer....which I was concerned about as it was so cheap. Not a single misfire... it too exceeded my expectations. All and all was a great experience and would do again in a heartbeat.

            I bought this for my cousin, a professional installer to put down. I was looking for something different than the usual oak floor. Something with knots and color variations. This stuff is great. Harder than oak and beautiful light and dark grains, very different and pleasing to the eye. The knots also add character making my brand new floor look rustic. This is exactly the look I wanted, love it after 3 coats of moisture cure finish.

                These floors are wonderful! We installed over 600 sq feet and only had three pieces that were not usable. Fantastic quality, still amazed whenever we walk in our front door. What a statement!

                  This was a great product. it is a little hard to get used to but once you do it goes quickly. the wife and i did the whole house in about a month working on it on the weekends 3500 sq ft. hickory is a bit hard to accept stain would reccomend a good gel stain but i used minwax stain and finished it with verathane semi gloss. i love it and by the way hickory is HARD.

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

                  Hi all

                  I ordered 5000 square feet of this, and finished just over 4000 - the rest is for the barbecue smoker and the log fire. The floor is beautiful. If you want a unique character floor then unfinished utility or ranch grade hickory is the way to go. Please note you will have a lot of firewood for the winter. A high percentage is mismilled and there are lots of splits in the utility grade.

                  I finished the floor with a colonial american half strength stain. Given the amount of labour - you will NOT save money on this product. If you want a unique and beautiful utility floor full of character, and you are prepared to remill several pieces with the table saw - this is a beautiful product.

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

                      I installed quite a bit of the natural Hickory through-out my bedroom, closets, living-room and stairs. I am happy with the choice. There are a lot of nice character marks in the wood. I didn't want a perfectly clear floor (I think those floors start to look like Pergo when they have no imperfections). In fact, I would have been ok with even more character marks. I prefer the sand/finish flooring for the smooth finished product. Pre-finished flooring tends to have "micro-edges" between boards which make it harder to clean. Also, pre-finished boards sometimes aren't perfectly milled to meet the next butt-end, causing small "butt-end" lips.

                      I could not use 25% of the pieces that I purchased. They are in too poor condition to be sanded or planed down to use. That said the pieces that I did use look good and I am happy with them.

                        Can this hickory flooring be glued instead of nailed?
                        Asked on 6/22/2013 by Wayne the builder from Lake Havasu, AZ

                        1 answer

                        • Staff Reviewer

                          A:

                          This is a solid 3/4" product designed to be nailed to a wood substrate.
                          But can be installed over concrete using our Elastilon underlayment.
                          What you should know about Elastilon Strong
                          An Elastilon-backed wood floor is much faster to install than traditional nail or glue-down methods.
                          Elastilon Strong can be installed on new concrete floors, handling up to 3.9% moisture content. A vapour barrier of at least 6 mil PE should be used below grade and on newly poured concrete above grade where the moisture content is above 3.9%.
                          Laid down with a 5/8” (15 mm) expansion gap, Elastilon Strong creates a dynamic, floating floor that expands or contracts naturally with the hardwood.

                      • Q:

                        How are the widths measured? On a board 3-1/4" like this, what is the face width? Is it 3" of flat surface width plus 1/4" to 3/8" of tongue? Can you measure a piece of 3/4 x 3-1/4" flooring? I want it for something other than flooring and need to rip/saw the tongue off and maybe the groove too, and need to know actual widths to determine what dimensions I will end up with. Thanks.

                        What does it mean, "square edge?" I didn't notice it mentioned for other flooring you sell. I'm actually looking for something without a tongue & groove if I can find it here.

                          This is an unfinished tongue and groove floor. Only prefinished floors have a micro-bevel.

                          Minimum 5/8" plywood. This solid 3/4" product is not recommended to be nailed over particle board (no holding power) and the only way to install this in a below grade application is to use our Elastilon underlayment.

                          Hickory is very hard with a 1820 rating on the Janka hardness scale. This is an unfinished product so you want to consult with a finish manufacture to get the most durable finish for the flooring. To help prevent scratches to the finish try to keep your pets claws trimmed or covered with vinyl claw covers. This wood would be a good choice for a dog owner because it is hard, and the light color will show less scratches.
