PG Hardwood Flooring is pleased to announce the introduction of three new colours. Based on feedback from several professionals and a survey of our network, we can affirm that the trend is currently towards shades of grey and greige. So, without further ado we are very proud to present our new additions this year! These three shades reminiscent of the colour of lava, plumes of smoke rising from volcanoes and shades of a savannah are sure to add even greater depth to our Model®product range.

Krafla is a volcano located on the mid-Atlantic ridge that cuts across Iceland north to south.
Bromo is a volcano in Indonesia that is part of the Tengger massif. Every year, the region’s inhabitants hold the Kesada Ceremony which consists of making offerings to the caldera, considered a divinity. Volcanoes are constructive forces. They create new land, fertilize existing land and carry many new minerals to the planet’s surface.
A savannah is a rolling grassland ecosystem scattered with shrubs and trees greater than 80 cm in height. Although globally arid, the savannah is characterized by tremendous biodiversity. These new colours are offered in Pacific grade maple, birch and red oak in all the widths and finishes of the Model Classic Collection.Read more »

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 appearance of gaps between boards is the result of internal variations of humidity within the boards. This is not related to a defective product. It is caused by environmental conditions.
There are several reasons for changes in humidity:
Boards too humid prior to installation: The boards were installed when their internal rate of humidity was too high. Increased humidity can be caused by several factors such as storing the boards in an environment that is too damp (concrete not yet cured, damp subfloor, fresh paint, etc.); boards delivered while it is raining outdoors and their transportation indoors, etc. The wood absorbs humidity and swells before installation. Once the flooring is installed and ambient humidity returns to normal, the wood loses its excess humidity and contracts, leaving visible gaps between the boards.
Relative humidity too low: The humidity rate in the air is too low (often the case in winter) and the boards tend to lose their humidity and contract. This happens quite frequently in winter and, in most cases, the boards return to their original form the following season.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 »
