We are very pleased to present to you five new additions to the Unique Collection. Our R&D team members have outdone themselves and are proud to introduce Sanibel, Meteora, Clan, Familia and Tamarin.
Sanibel and Meteora (pre-oiled)
New additions to the Origin Series offered in silver maple, 5¼ inches.
Clan and Familia (pre-oiled)
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.
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. Keeping your flooring looking its best for many years requires maintenance and ambient humidity control. Compliance with our maintenance instructions is a determining factor of your warranty. Normal maintenance of prefinished flooring is simple and quick. Model cleaning products have been tested on our varnishes and their use will ensure that your floor remains beautiful looking for years to come.
Step 1: Vacuum regularly.
Step 2: Spray the cleaning product on the mop cover and rub a section of flooring back and forth in the direction of the boards.
Unadvisable: The use of wax, household cleaners and oil-based soap on flooring is not recommended, nor is cleaning flooring with a mixture of water and vinegar or using a steam cleaner. These products may damage the flooring and void your warranty.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 »
