American Beech has unique pale pink and peachy colors not found in any other wood. Beech has many historical uses but is often overlooked as a flooring choice. It’s harder than Red Oak, and much more exclusive. The country grade has any material that functions as a wood floor (including shorter-than-average lengths and unfilled knots). It’s milled and finished alongside the higher grades for the same performance … but at the price of a quality laminate. This 3/4″-thick solid prefinished wood flooring is suitable for above grade installations, and can be nailed, or glued with the appropriate mastic. It’s milled with microbevels and a smooth surface, and natural variations in color are allowed.
