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

    We selected the 2nd grade of this Oak flooring. Adds some great character to the floor. We did not need a lot of extras due to the majority of the boards being in great shape...only a few missing the tongue, knots in the wrong spot, etc.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Arrived quick with helpful staff at the Lexington location.

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

        Boards nice and straight. Very smooth surface so sanding will be minimal. However, many boards suffered severe sniping / burning either from surface planer or roll sander requiring more culling,cutting and waste than would have liked.

        Too many holes and cracks

        By angry_customer

        from Boston, MA

        Verified Reviewer

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

        If you're buying from here, you will need to either get at least 100 Sq ft as waste or deal with a mixture of bad wood. There were so much holes and cracks in them. I had to get an extra 5p sq ft at another place. I do not recommend here. It was good years ago, but no longer on my list for my floor needs.

          We are re-doing a 1960 rancher and this product was simply meant to be in it. Put it on a concrete slab with poly down first and then Elastilon. A great investment, should last 100 years! Great for kids and pets because it is so durable and cleanable. Worth the investment -- has added great value to the home. Looks old school but a lot of the time the old school stuff is still the best.

                what grade is this flooring. Is it a number 1 oak? does it contain knots and if so what percentage / size allowable

                  A:

                  This is natural grade. Natural Grade flooring contains distinct variations in coloration and varying wood characters. Natural grade flooring will have a slightly longer average plank length compared to Rustic grade products. Can be between 1-6 feet on average.

                  A:

                  The only way to install this solid 3/4" flooring is to use our Elastilon underlayment product.
                  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.
                  • Elastilon Strong has no odor and is free of volatile materials.
                  • Elastilon Strong gives cushioned comfort.
                  • 1/8” (3 mm) thick Elastilon Strong has ratings of IIC 62 and STC 54.
                  • Thermal resistance: R _ 0,15 (m K) / W
                  • Elastilon Strong carries a 70-year limited warranty.

                  I would not recommend this product over your radiant heat system. You would have better results if you use a quarter sawn solid wood flooring or an Engineered, or Laminate floor. For information about our quarter sawn wood floor options please contact our sales department at 1-800-HARDWOOD.

                  A:

                  Both have advantages; a pre-finished floor can be installed and then walked on as soon as it is layed, where as a sand & finished floor will take up a few days. The advantage of a sanded floor is that you have more stain color choices and different gloss levels to choose from.
