Light Feature, Rustic, Reclaimed Grades.. What do these grades mean?
Timber grading relates to the visual character of timber flooring; the size and frequency of naturally occurring wood features in each board. Boards with larger and more frequent features will be graded differently to boards with smaller and less occurring features.
Because timber is a natural product, some features are seen across all grades. For example, gum veins, knots (to differing degrees) mild gum pockets and sapwood. The presence of these features don’t necessarily detract from the overall look of the floor but add personality and individual character to your floor
Some Things to Know About Timber 'Grades'
Selection Tip: When looking at individual board planks, it’s hard to translate that to the overall flooring look, so we recommend requesting a couple of planks to give you a better idea of the grade you’re selecting.
How the boards and lengths are laid on the floor is up to your floor installer; so if you have any specific requests, mention this when discussing your project requirements.
