Flooring Grades

(Character Marks Included in a Higher Grade Flooring are Automatically Accepted in Lower Grade Flooring)

“Rift/Quartered” is known for its close grain and relatively uniform appearance, making it a perfect choice for those desiring a grain strength and attractive linear styling. Ideal for radiant floor heating projects.

Average Strip Flooring Length: Approximately 33"
Average Plank Flooring Length: Approximately 34" -38"

“Clear Grade” is relatively free of character marks and the most consistent in color. It's considered to be a more elegant grade of wood, due to its clean, graceful and uniform appearance.

Average Strip Flooring Length: Approximately 36"
Average Plank Flooring Length: Approximately 34" -38"

“Select Grade” has limited character marks and a wider range of color variation than in Clear Grade. This endows the wood with a beautiful, natural quality and makes this versatile grade an appropriate choice for any room.

Average Strip Flooring Length: Approximately 33"
Average Plank Flooring Length: Approximately 34" -38"

“#1 Common Grade” has a variegated appearance, with both light and dark colors. Natural wood characteristics, including knots, wormholes and other markings, make this grade both interesting and attractive.

Average Strip Flooring Length: Approximately 28"
Average Plank Flooring Length: Approximately 28" -30"

“#2 Common Grade” provides handsome visual texture, knotholes, very dark stains and other natural "beauty marks" that convey the history of the wood, without detracting from its durability. The floor is serviceable, economical and exhibits the uniqueness of natural wood.

Average Strip Flooring Length: Approximately 18"
Average Plank Flooring Length: Approximately 16" -24"

All Weaber Strip Flooring products are packaged in 7' nested bundles. Our Plank Flooring products are packaged in 7' and 7-1/2' nested bundles depending on grade.
Quantity per bundle and average length varies by width and grade.

Installation Safeguards

For Installing Unfinished Hardwood Floors

Hardwood flooring is a kiln-dried product. Weaber’s Wood Flooring is manufactured at a 6%-9% moisture content with a 5% allowance for pieces outside that range up to 12% moisture content. To maintain these moisture levels, do not truck or unload in rain, snow or other excessively humid conditions. Cover with a tarpaulin or vinyl if atmosphere is foggy or damp.

CHECK FIRST for the following conditions, and if they exist, correct them: Water or excessive moisture underneath or in the house, insufficient ventilation under the house, wet conditions, inadequate moisture retarder. 

  • CRAWL SPACE CONSTRUCTION - A ground cover of 4-6 mil polyethylene is essential as a moisture retarder. Ventilation must be provided with no dead air areas.

  • CONCRETE SLAB CONSTRUCTION - Proper on-grade construction requires both a vapor retarder between the gravel fill and the slab to prevent moisture entry through the slab, and a vapor retarder on the top of the slab to prevent moisture from reaching the finished floor.

  • SUBFLOORS - With 3/4” thick strip flooring use either kiln-dried boards of #1 or #2 Common Pine or other dense, Group 1 Softwoods suitable for subfloors over wood joists, or exterior plywood. If plywood, 5/8” (19/32”) or 3/4” (23/32”) performance rated products are preferred. Also, 3/4” (23/32”) is a comparable substrate. With 1/2” thick strip flooring use a 3/4” (23/32”) subfloor. Thinner materials can not be recommended as a preferred subfloor material. Flooring strips (no matter what length) should contain a MINIMUM of 2 nails. Nail all pieces within 1”-3” of the ends.

  • HANDLING & STORAGE - Flooring should be stored in a dry well ventilated warehouse. Recently manufactured flooring should be allowed to acclimate to the area. 

  • BEFORE DELIVERY OF FLOORING, the building must be closed-in with outside windows and doors in place and sheetrock installed. All concrete, masonry, and framing members, etc. should be completely dry. Never pour concrete after flooring is delivered. 

  • AFTER DELIVERY OF FLOORING, it should be broken up into small lots and stored in the rooms where it will be installed. Allow four to five days for the flooring to become acclimated to that particular job site. Temperature and humidity should be maintained at or near occupancy levels.
