Flooring & Stepping
Clear Vertical Grain Doug Fir
Douglas Fir Flooring is classic, beautiful and versatile. Vertical grain is revealed when wood is sawn so that the tree’s growth rings are perpendicular to the cut. This results in a pattern of straight, long lines on the face of each board. Not only does this provide a great look, it is also beneficial because the even distribution of growth rings allow the board to evenly expand and contract as temperature and humidity varies.
