Description Technical Specs

Why is Rift & Quartered Flooring so Special?

The advantages of rift & quartered flooring lies in the dimensional stability over flat or plain sawn. Wood naturally expands and contracts with moisture relative to the surrounding humidity. Wood floors expanding across the width can buckle, cup, raise off the subfloor, even push out walls. The way the tree's growth rings run through the board determines the direction of movement. Plain sawn will move across the width of the board creating gaps and other problems. Rift and quartered movement is restricted to the thickness of the board and movement is vertical so the boards are not moving against each other and stay tight. This dimensional stability makes it the best option for radiant heated floors and wide plank flooring.
