This year, the trend is towards grey colours, large boards and a rustic appearance. Following are our new products.
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.

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!Read more »

False. Wood and water don’t mix well. Wood fibres swell when they absorb water. This can deteriorate the wood and the finish of your flooring. When water infiltrates flooring, it can result in dimensional changes to the boards, wood discolouration and the development of mould between the boards. The kitchen and hallway are locations where water often comes in contact with wood. Special attention should be paid to these locations where wood is installed to avoid contact with any kind of liquid.
Recommendation: Wipe up spills (water, liquids, detergents) immediately before they are absorbed by the wood fibres. Place mats in front of kitchen sinks, the dishwasher and workstations in the kitchen. Use carpets at door entrances to collect water and snow.Read more »
A. We do not recommend installing boards in the same direction as joists because movement in the latter will result in the appearance of gaps between the boards. In cases where it is impossible to install the boards perpendicular to the joists, install ½ inch plywood panels over the existing subfloor, taking care to stagger the joints between the overlapping panels.Read more »
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.Read more »
