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 »

A. The Select and Better grade offers the very best colour uniformity in wood flooring. However, wood is a living material, and despite the highest classification standards, colour variations will be present on some boards, irrespective of grade, species and colour. Most experienced installers work with several boxes of boards at once to ensure that colour variations are mixed and spread to achieve the most harmonious appearance possible.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 »
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 »
