Good floor but still color variance and too many short piece

    Comments about R.L. Colston 3/4" x 2 1/4" Maple:

    I definitely wanted a uniform color and thought 'select' was the way to go but I don't consider it uniform at all. We had to be very careful and conscious during the installation to make it look random by try to put like colored boards together and not having super light right in the middle of super light... Also hugely disproportionate number of short pieces and by short, probably more than half the boards were under 24" so you have color issues and then having to piece together a bunch of little pieces... It turned outgood but glad I installed it myself as a flooring company would have just thrown it down and called it all 'random' and say that's how it should look... We spent a lot of time and in the end looks good but just not the bowling alley look/consistency was going for. When I say I wouldn't recommend this, I just wouldn't recommend it if their goal was the same as mine. It is a nice durable floor and if you like the random/varied colors, it's perfect.

      Unfinished Hardwood Install

      Comments about R.L. Colston 3/4" x 2 1/4" Maple:

      This hardwood floor was a joy to install. The boards locked into place. The milling standards were consistent, the boards were straight and true. I did not encounter any boards with blemishes. I would use this product again. My only concern is the stack of short lengths I have left over. When I calculate the shorts as a percentage of the overall project it is about 4%. I was careful to use shorts under Kitchen cabinets...so the percentage might be higher in a dinning or living room.

        Wrong product delivered to store from online order. The order took 2 weeks to get there too. Luckily, the store manager found the same product in a different store. I had to drive 30 miles to get it though.

Very clean, straight, and easy to install. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from this manufacturer in the future.

                  Great product. I installed the same wood in a living room and dinning room about 8 years ago and it still looks like new. We decide to replace carpet in a couple of the bedrooms and this floor is what we are putting in there as well. I really like the wider planks, makes installation easier (less nailing).

                        R.L. Colston-3/4" x 2-1/4" Maple Unfinished Square Edge Solid Hardwood Flooring- is unfinished.
                        Unfinished means that the wood flooring has not been run through a finishing line and has not been sanded, stained, or finished with a top coat (urethane). It will need to be finished on site after it is installed.
                        This product is sold by the sq. ft unit as it is sourced from different mills in bundles that can vary depending on supplier (usually around 19 sq ft each).
