Grey, a sure bet

Once again this year, grey is very popular in interior design. So, two new shades of grey have joined our product line: Roccia, a medium grey offered in the preoiled Model Classic Collection and Urbania, a mouse grey available in the prefinished Unique Collection.

New grade and new width: Heritage 5¼ inches

We also created a new, more naturally rustic grade with wider boards in attractive lengths. Heritage grade boards are 5¼ inches wide and available in the following species: birch, red oak, maple, silver maple and ash.

New in 2013

In recent months, PG Hardwood Flooring surveyed a number of industry professionals to gain insight into the latest floor covering trends. This year, the trend is towards lighter shades, a rustic appearance, matt finishes and so on. So this is what we propose for 2013.

Introduction of preoiled UV environmentally friendly products

This year, PG added preoiled UV products to its Unique Collection as well as its Model Classic Collection. Products are finished with natural renewable oil, an environmentally friendly choice. This process allows the wood to breathe and is popular because it is simple to maintain and repair. Oiled flooring also enhances the grain of the wood, conferring a matt, rustic appearance. Habano and its rich cocoa brown overtones are sure to please those seeking a rich decor, while Marula with its greige accents adapts easily to any interior. For the more daring, PG and a professional painter worked together to create a Mediterranean-inspired product contrasting electric blue and carbon grey tones: Hope. This floor is sure to be the centre of attention in any home.

New in the Origin Series and E Series

Given the resounding success of the Origin Series, PG developed a new stain with greige accents known as Pelletier. The new Arizona colour added to the E Series features sandy grey and carbon tones.

New colours for the Model Classic Collection

Once again, this year, grey is the mainstay of interior design and we are pleased to offer customers Minio in shades of mouse-grey. Owing to the trend in lighter shades this year, PG developed a new colour, Sandbanks, sure to leave no one indifferent. Create your own ambience with Minio and Sandbanks available for all our grades, species, widths and finishes. The choice is yours!

Q. Is 15-lb construction paper an efficient vapour barrier?

A. Construction paper slows down the migration of humidity between the subfloor and boards, but does not act as a vapour barrier. Tar-free vapour barrier paper is required.

Q. My floor is scratchproof.

A.

False. No floor is scratchproof. Install felt spacers on furniture and chair legs and protect your floor when moving furnishings about. Place carpets in front of door entrances and in high traffic areas. Install a protector under your computer chair.  Sweep or vacuum the floor regularly.

Q. I’m having problems understanding the difference between grade and quality. If I choose Select and Better, the quality is better, isn’t it?

A. Effectively, many people believe that buying Select and Better means buying a better quality product. However, product quality is associated with the production method, while grade is associated with product colour. The grade refers to the number of characteristics allowed and the natural colour of the wood. For example, colour variation in the boards and the presence of small knots and mineral streaks is more markedly present in the Natural grade than in the Select and Better grade.

Refer to the “Documnents - Other documents” section to see the differences inherent in each grade. Do not forget that all PG® and Model® products, irrespective of grade, are manufactured with the same attention to detail. It’s up to you to choose the grade best suited to your rustic or contemporary style project.
