skill of an old world tradesmen to do the work on your floors. One of
the more simple up grades that can add real flair to an older 50's 60's
home is to rip out and replace to old fir stair treads even if you keep
the old fir skirting the treads and risers can come out and new pre made
oak stair treads can be fitted and urethane glued in. While we are on
the topic of fifties sixties homes the top nailed strip floors came in
several different face widths, the inch and a third top nailed strip Oak
came from different sources back in the day and are not usually
transplantable, Handy to know the history and legacy of the nailing
patterns of the hardwood flooring contractors of Vancouver from the 40s
and onwards. Upgrading a sixties home with a new kitchen hardwood floor
is money well spent too I have installed every kind of hardwood floor in
a kitchen you can imagine, one of the best looking hardest wearing
easiest to keep would be ones that match the physical dimensions of the
length and the face width. AHF all hardwood floor Ltd. can supply you

oak hardwood flooring materials. This is specially milled I need six
weeks usually to make it with variety of matching in colors. This

the face width for stability. Stability of being able to pick up ambient
changes in the environment humidity and temperature mostly concerning the wood species ability expand and
contract without overbearing it past it's point of dimensional origin.
A diligent Installer knows what to watch out for while laying a wooden floor and how to
alleviate the additional stress caused by this. Know your grains, the
best floors have dedicated specified grain designations and are part of
international standards such as the NWFA or the MFMA . You probably
heard of these Oak species grain patterns rift sawn is edge grain,
quarter sawn is vertical grain, Plain sawn is common or flat grain. Each
type of grain has its own direction of expansion and contraction besides

different sawing methods on our premium site finished Hardwood
flooring Plain sawn
Plain sawn (also called flat sawn) is the most common cut. It
produces the maximum yield and therefore costs less. Plain-sawn
lumber has varying grain orientations. The grain can run parallel,
diagonal or perpendicular to the face of the board. This variation
can cause un-even drying which makes the board more likely to warp
(cup, twist, and bow). The board will also shrink somewhat in
thickness as well as width. A plain sawn floorboard contains more
variation than the other two cuts because grain patterns resulting
from the growth rings are more obvious. Quarters awn Quarter sawing
produces flooring with annual growth rings running almost straight
along the face of the board. Quarters awn flooring materials tend to
remain flat despite changes in moisture content and are less likely
to shrink. Quarter-sawn flooring also has superior ability to hold
paints and stains. This process costs more because quarter sawing
requires more time and skill to cut and it yields less board footage
from each log. Rift sawn Rift sawn is similar to quarters awing, but
the cut is made at a slightly different angle.
Project Wood flooring will
perform best when the interior environment is controlled to stay
within a relative humidity range 30% to 50% and a temperature range
60F to 80F. The chart below indicates the moisture content wood will
likely have at any given combination of temperature and humidity.
Note that equilibrium moisture contents in the recommended
temperature/humidity range (green area) coincide with the 6% to 9%
range within which most hardwood flooring is manufactured. Although
some movement can be expected even between 6% and 9%, wood can
expand and shrink dramatically outside that range.
