Rustic Floor Supply offers unfinished hardwood flooring at our Atlanta, Georgia location. Solid unfinished hardwood flooring stands as the premier choice in flooring materials, combining the advantages of other flooring options with fewer drawbacks. With solid unfinished hardwood, you gain full control over the final appearance of your floor. You can select the wood species, texture, and stain that align with your design preferences and finish the wood to your exact specifications. Comprising entirely natural, organic wood with no artificial components, solid unfinished hardwood embodies a timeless and classic selection. Additionally, it can be refinished and restyled to acquire a completely new look. In contrast, other materials such as engineered hardwood and luxury vinyl (LVP) attempt to replicate the authenticity of solid hardwood. Prefinished solid hardwood also falls into the category of imitation, as it’s essentially pre-stained and finished. When it comes to versatility and natural beauty, no other flooring material can rival solid unfinished hardwood.

Species of Solid Unfinished Wood Flooring

Different Styles of Hardwood Flooring Cuts

  1. Plain Sawn Flooring: This traditional method involves cutting logs into hardwood, resulting in the most usable wood. Growth rings are mixed throughout the face of the flooring, and at the ends of the boards, they create cathedral arches.
  2. Live Sawn Flooring: An increasingly popular choice, live-sawn flooring imparts a unique look to the boards. It offers more character and distinct grading compared to plain-sawn flooring, with character variations on the boards. Live-sawn flooring is gaining popularity in Europe and Asia. It retains the cathedral style of plain-sawn boards but typically positions it in the middle of the plank, with more straight grain along the edges.
  3. Quarter Sawn Flooring: Quarter-sawn flooring results from quartering a log and then cutting these quarters both vertically and horizontally. This method creates a unique appearance with flecking but lacks the cathedral look found in other cuts. Quarter-sawn wood is more stable and less prone to warping than plain or live-sawn flooring. However, it’s often more expensive due to the increased waste generated during production.
  4. Rift Sawn Flooring: Rift-sawn flooring is derived from the outer edge of the log, cut at a different angle than quarter-sawn flooring. This cutting process produces a uniform style with less variation than other cuts, making the grain appear to run in a single direction.
