This floor will have AT LEAST 25% waste or possibly much more!
Who buys #3 common flooring? People who are looking for extreme character in their floor. If you think you’re going to make a #1 common floor out of this by culling out the waste, you are mistaken. If a piece were #1 common, it would have went into the #1 common pile when this was graded. So don’t call us after you buy this upset saying you’re having a ton of waste. If you are wanting a nicer floor with less waste, spend the money now and buy a higher grade floor.
Unfinished White Oak No. 3 Common hardwood flooring comes from a long line of beautiful White Oaks. Being that it is a White Oak, that does mean that it is apt to undergo moderate color changes overtime, taking on a slightly amber tone. It is essentially a straight-grained wood with a medium to coarse texture and longer rays than its close relative Red Oak. In addition, the sapwood of White Oak is almost white, while the heartwood is grayish brown.
