Grading And Packaging

People have been using hardwood floors for

hundreds of years — examples can be found in

some of the oldest castles and palaces in

Europe. In the era when those floors were laid, hardwood

floors were constructed by hand in every aspect,

from cutting down the lumber to applying the wax.

With the advent of hardwood floor manufacturing

machinery, however, an entire industry was born.

While installing, sanding and finishing a floor

remained a specialized skill, creating the floors themselves

was no longer a painstaking process. Around

the turn of the century, mills were established specifically

for the production of hardwood floors. Not long

after, the burgeoning wood flooring industry saw the

need to implement standards, or grades.
