Logs are like diamonds. The price of smaller diamonds with flaws is rather inexpensive. Larger diamonds are in shorter supply and as their size increases the price per carat also increases. Large flawless diamonds are very rare and their price goes up exponentially per carat.
Our floors can be compared to a diamond necklace composed of large perfectly matched, flawless diamonds. Each one of these large, flawless diamonds has to be perfectly matched. Color matching our flooring starts from hand picking our logs from the forest and continues all they way through to the final inspection prior to shipping.
Each Charles Peterson Signature Floor is custom milled to order. We select only the rarest veneer grade logs to craft each floor. Cutting true defect-free Quarter sawn plank flooring that contains no sapwood or pith requires the largest most perfect logs available. From these logs we only use the ones in the midrange of the color spectrum for each species.
Color matching our flooring starts from hand picking our logs from the forest and continues all the way through to the final inspection prior to shipping. A Signature Grade floor is manufactured from the smallest number of logs possible (approximately 200 square feet of flooring per log, over 300 sq.ft. of flooring if we are allowed “random widths”) for the least variation in log color and grain matching possible
