This grade displays the wood's natural medley of colour and character. Premier Grade highlights some of the colour variation that is found in natural wood. With no more than 3 pieces in a row (7.5') when boxed these long boards produce a floor that is very clean and consistent. This grade is exceptionally uniform in both colour consistency and clarity and as such variations caused by staining, checking and mineral streaks, pin knots and character marks are not found in this grade. Grading is a means.
