Contact Top Grade Floors About Maple


Maple is notably resistant to abrasive wear; and for this reason, it is the hardwood flooring of choice for such high-traffic/hard-use locations as bowling alleys, basketball courts, and other sports facilities. The heartwood ranges from creamy white to light reddish brown while the sapwood is a lovely creamy white. This wood has a closed, subdued grain and a uniform texture, with medium figuring. The figuring is variously described as quilted, curly, "bird's-eye," and "fiddleback." During the grading process, interestingly figured boards are often culled from the group and sold at a premium.

Also known as: Hard Maple, Sugar Maple, Black Maple, Bird's Eye Maple, and Acer Saccharum
