FAQ About Ten Oaks Flooring

How much water does the sealed product protect against?2022-08-10T21:24:51+00:00

While antedotal, we did a test in our offices. A normal unfinished & prefinished plank were submerged in water takes on around 18% moisture overnight. The Ten Oaks sealed took on 2% of moisture. Both tests were done in the same sink, same water and for the same period. It is amazing how much moisture was repelled and not let into the wood to make it change size and shape!

Does the Sealed make the boards straigher?2022-08-10T21:22:54+00:00

Suprisingly, yes! While the wood waits at the mill and is being transported it is interesting how much a wood plank can move. The wood being sealed make sit so the wood is unable to bow or move while transporting. The Ten Oaks flooring is some of the straightest wood because of the full seal on the wood flooring.

Can I install this sooner on a new construction or water damage floor?2022-08-10T21:21:17+00:00

It is recommended to wait till the house is closed up and the painting is done as the moisture can be very high. However, once this is done you do not need to acclimate the wood, you are able to install day of delivery wihtout fear of the floor not being flat.

Can I glue down if I used the sealed floor?2022-08-10T21:18:28+00:00

Yes, glueing the floor down is perfectly fine. Ten Oaks has approved the use of Pallmann and Loba glues. You do not need to do anything special, you can glue right to the back of the board with the seal on it.

Do I need to sand the floor if it is sealed?2022-08-10T20:30:32+00:00

Yes, the baords are fully sealed for moisture but after installation it is recommended you sand the floor with a 60g or lower belt then proceed as normal with your normal sanding sequence. After sanding it is ideal to put a coat of stain or oil/water based finish before 48 hours to ensure the moisture doesn’t change.

Ten Oaks Company History

Ten Oaks has a rich history dating back to May 1922, when it was established as the Stuart Lumber Company by four local visionaries with a desire to tap into the county’s timber resources. In its formative years, the company’s leadership rotated among its four founders.

In 1982, Buddy, who had previously worked at Masonite Corporation, decided to venture out on his own. His first step was to acquire disused strip flooring equipment from Masonite, setting it up along the banks of the Mayo River. In July 1984, he founded the Stuart Flooring Corporation with just one-half of a strip mill manufacturing line.

In 2004, Buddy expanded his enterprise by acquiring the T-George Vaughan Furniture company and its facility located in the Rich Creek Corporate Park in Stuart, Virginia. The facility comprised a 260,000 square-foot building and 34 acres of land, which he intended to use for expanding his hardwood flooring operations. The mill’s name was changed from Stuart Flooring to Ten Oaks, LLC, with a vision to elevate the quality of hardwood flooring.

Over the following 14 years, Ten Oaks experienced steady growth and eventually found itself running out of space in its original Progress Drive location. It also required enhanced raw material processing capabilities to meet the rising production demand. An opportunity arose when Shaw Industries announced plans to close the old Stuart Flooring mill, and Ten Oaks seized the chance to acquire it. With access to this spacious plant, Ten Oaks could expand its solid hardwood flooring product line and provide a broader array of products that catered to customer needs.

With a company as steeped in history as Ten Oaks, Rustic Floor Supply takes immense pride in offering Ten Oaks Hardwood Flooring in Atlanta, Georgia.
