Northern Hard Maple Flooring

Grades & Specs | Solid Plank Prices | Engineered Plank Prices

Northern Hard Maple is one of the hardest flooring options available. It is the hardwood flooring commonly used for bowling alleys and gymnasiums, and was once used for the turned legs of most furniture. Maple flooring is also the lightest colored hardwood floor we offer – a very pale cream ranging from slightly pink to almost white in 1st Grade Premium, with frequent medium tan to brown striations in Natural Grade. The whiteness of maple flooring can best be maintained by using a water based finish or an oil finish will impart the traditional yellow tone of a gym floor. For a durable, clean-looking hardwood floor, Maple plank flooring presents an excellent option.
