Builder's Pride- 3/4" x 2-1/4" Natural Hickory Prefinished Solid Flooring- 25 Year Warranty

In addition to being the hardest of the North American flooring choices, Hickory is also a beautiful option for home or business owners seeking a room with dramatic appeal.
This hardwood displays a breath taking variety of brown tones and dramatic grain patterns that make it just as appropriate in a contemporary high rise loft as it is in a log cabin.
In Eastern North America, it survived the catastrophic changes of the Glacial Epoch, some 50 million years ago. Thus, it is the first strictly American hardwood species. Westward trekking pioneers made hickory a prerequisite for their wagon wheels.  The same durability and strength that made hickory the choice for axe handles and other tools in the past now make it an excellent choice for high traffic areas.

What is "Natural Grade"?
Natural Grade flooring contains distinct variations in coloration and varying wood characters. 
It will also have a slightly longer average plank length compared to Rustic grade products but shorter length than our select grade product.

After 1 year, still love my floor

By chuck

from Southern Califronia

This was my first time installing a wood floor, and it went very well. There was a nice variety of wood tones and lengths within each box, a few pinhole knots or other defects that I was able to cut around. There were very very few totally unusable pieces, maybe 2 or 3 out of 16 boxes of the stuff; I ordered 10% over the 340 sqare feet I needed and I wound up with enough leftover to do the floor in a large closet. I put it all in a year ago, and after a one complete cycle of seasons I can report no buckling, cupping, splitting, or other weirdness. I love the look of the old-school 2.25" wide flooring, but word to the wise: wider planks means less bending over and nailing!

Service and delivery comments:

I picked it up at my local store, they used a forklift to put it in the back of my truck and I was gone within maybe ten minutes of showing up. Very helpful guys!

Cons

      We considered getting oak hardwood, which is what we already have in the rest of the house. So glad we decided to go a different direction in our new bedroom addition. The floor looks great. Can't wait until the room is finished to fully appreciate the new floor.

                      • Q:

                        I am planning on using this flooring in my upcoming kitchen renovation, but can't seem to find a definitive answer on whether to install before or after the cabinets. I plan to nail-down the flooring over the existing plywood sub-floor. I figure it will be easier to install the flooring first, but want to make sure there are no issues with expansion or contraction of the wood. Is there an actual recommended sequence for install?
