Lacquer vs. Oil (VCC Only)

The modern, Lacquered wood flooring is extremely tough and hardwearing while still protecting the “natural” coloring of the wood and preserving its warmth and vibrancy over the years. Unlike waxed/oiled finishes that require regular treatment to keep them maintained, lacquered floors take little more than sweeping or vacuuming with an occasional use of a wood floor cleaner. Lacquered finishes form a protective coating that is scratch and water resistant making it the ideal finish for the modern home.

Wood flooring choices comes from species' natural colors and even the wood's tendency to lighten or darken with sun exposure and age. Variances by species in colors range from clean look of the Birch to richness color of the Brazilin Cherry. The rating scale is from 1 (lightest in color) to 5 (darker color).

 

EDGE DETAIL

The edge/end detail is the way the edges and the ends of the wooden boards are cut.
