The Choice Between Plain, Quarter, and Rift Sawn Hardwood Flooring

Posted by admin Blog 0

Hardwood flooring is a classic and ever-popular choice for many number of flooring applications. Though,  choosing which kind of flooring is often no easy task. Choosing which type of hardwood you’ll be using is one hurdle on it’s own, and to some, probably the most obvious. Apart from that, though, there is also the choice of which kind of cut you would like – and I’m not talking about beef. Hardwood boards can come in a number of different cuts, all with different appearances and stability. The main choice is between plain sawn, quarter sawn, and rift sawn.

Generally speaking, quarter sawn and rift sawn board are the most labor intensive, respectively, and produce the most stable boards, but come with a little higher cost.
