Wood specie specification
Description: The use of oak in flooring is very widespread, notably because of its excellent stability. It is prized for domestic use in temperate climates. It's also used in structural work, because it is solid and resistant. Oak is a wood with character, both classic and timeless, making it a sound investment. It goes well with all styles of decor. Its texture and grain allow a lot of freedom in applying different types of finishes: aging, hammering, staining, smoking by oxidation... there are many styles, making the possibilities endless. Oak ages especially well, because its beauty intensifies over time. It is mainly characterised by its natural roughness, having knots, cracks, and grooves. The number and size of these defects can influence the oak's look and determine its grade or "choice." Whether you choose character, rustic, or prime grade oak, it's all a matter of style.
CD Grade : The CD grade is the most common grade for wood flooring. All type of knots and traces of sapwood are permitted on the solid wood facing. These natural defects are part of wood's appeal as an elegant and unique, living material.
Glued onto a multiply wood base of 9 layers of birch, the wood flooring has a wear layer that is just as deep as that of solid wood. Classic finishes and remarkable stability for long-lasting and timeless result.
Brushed wood flooring : The wood is brushed along the grain to remove its soft parts. The "brushed" finish makes the surface slightly irregular to the touch, so the wood's texture is highlighted. This finish works best in rooms where there is heavy traffic, because scratches and scrapes are less noticeable due to the floor's irregularity.

Floating a wood floor, or "floating installation", is the quickest and easiest installation method for non-professionals, and can be undertaken by any DIY enthusiast.
The principle is very straightforward: assemble the flooring by glueing or clipping the strips together using their tongue and groove joints. The strips themselves are not stuck to the floor at all, hence the term "floating installation". This is an easier and more adaptable method to use when laying over the top of an existing floor-covering (plastic floorings, carpets, tiles, stone…). Advice : add 10% to your existing surface
