Are Rift and/or Quarter Sawn planks more stable?

All other things being equal, Rift and Quarter Sawn planks tend to exhibit less movement across their width than plain sawn boards, but, the difference is slight, and in practice is virtually indiscernible. Because our drying and conditioning processes impart such stability to our planks, the benefit of using our rift and/or quarter sawn flooring over our plain sawn flooring solely for performance is marginal. Choose our Rift and/or Quarter Sawn flooring for its beauty instead!
