Grading guide


The grade of a material refers to how each plank of wood is selected. It’s all about how it looks: colour, frequency of knots, and imperfections like sapwood are all considered. Our entire range of boards, whether it be our highest grade prime or most characterful are all made using the same exacting techniques to the highest standard. So when choosing your floor, consider the grade like one would with a diamond’s clarity.


Below we have compiled the main grading rules we use when selecting & measuring our reclaimed boards.
