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. 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.Read more »
A. This phenomenon is due to a variation in the internal humidity of the wood. This is not related to a defective product. It is caused by environmental conditions.
There are several reasons for changes in humidity:
Humidity too high in the subfloor or a very damp basement: The underside of the board absorbs more humidity than its top side, resulting in unequal swelling between the underside and top side of the board and the cupping effect.
Leaks or water spilled on the floor: Water infiltrates between the boards and is absorbed by their undersides. This results in swelling on the topside and the cupping effect.
Relative humidity too high: During very humid periods, the wood absorbs humidity from the ambient air and expands. Since the boards are anchored to the floor they cannot expand freely and press against each other, causing cupping. Insufficiently large expansion joints can exacerbate the problem.
A stable climatic environment in the house is the key to the optimum stability of wood flooring. Refer to our installation guide, in the documents section, for more detailsRead more »
Use carpets and maps that will not run when damp. Ensure that the carpet underside is not rough or made of natural rubber. Soft, synthetic undersides are safe if equipped with holes to allow the flooring to breathe. Clean regularly under carpeting to remove dust and other abrasive dirt. To avoid colour changes to flooring, occasionally move carpeting about.
