Introducing a new series: THE FORTUNE SERIES
This series features two products with a neo-retro look offered in 7-inch birch.
Is it possible to create a prized, walnut-inspired product? Yes, because we have succeeded! Tamarin, offered in Pacific grade 3 ¼-inch birch, re-creates the rich look of walnut at lesser cost.
You have projects, we have the solution:
All-new ModelSmart, our latest, reasonably priced engineered product, combines the beauty and reputation of Model® flooring with the best price-quality ratio.
Following recent reports on CARB certification, PG Hardwood Flooring is pleased to announce that its Model engineered products meet the most stringent requirements of the Californian Air Regulation Board (CARB) regarding volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Moreover, because we want to make our planet a better world, engineered products by Model are available with FSC certification, upon request.
CARB requirements do not apply to Model solid hardwood products because the regulation applies only to substrates used to manufacture engineered products.Read more »
A. Yellowing or changes in the colour of wood is a natural phenomenon. Wood itself changes colour as it ages and sunlight will affect the colour of your hardwood flooring. Although the Model Plus finish contains an anti-yellowing ingredient that delays and diminishes this phenomenon, the flooring will age and a more or less pronounced colour variation will appear, depending on the species. To minimize this effect, occasionally move furnishings and carpets around.Read more »
A. There are several reasons why floors make cracking sounds:
Relative humidity: Ensure that the relative humidity in your house is neither too high nor too low. This may explain why your floor loosens and becomes noisy. A humidity rating between 37% and 45% is ideal.
Wrong type of subfloor: For nailed flooring, the subfloor must be made of plywood or OSB panels; the use of particleboard is not recommended.
Wrong subfloor thickness: The recommended panel thickness is ¾ inches (plywood or OSB) for joists spaced apart 19 inches or less, centre to centre. Spacing exceeding 19 inches or a greater span can result in deflection, leading to cracking sounds.
Board direction: Boards are installed in the same direction as the joists.
Structural weakness: The subfloor is not firmly anchored to the joists with flooring screws; there are gaps between the subfloor and the joists.
Lack of anchors: When boards are not anchored securely, they may move and lead to cracking sounds. Each board must have a minimum of two nails two inches from board ends, ideally spaced at eight-inch intervals in relation to the board length.Read more »
