Grading

Please take note the following grade definitions below and ensure that you are happy that your entire consignment adheres to the correct grade. Engineered boards will have filled knots whereas solid boards may be filled or fillable. Every customer has different preferences so please ensure that you remove any board or cut out any knot that you are not entirely happy with BEFORE fitting. Once boards are fitted they have been accepted and cannot be replaced.
