Our Unique Process

Watch our mini-documentary

Step 1

Lumber Selection

Beginning at the tree, we source our lumber from only environmentally friendly sources. Eco certified, salvaged or privately farmed woods are tracked through our processing from start to finish allowing each floor to come with a “Certificate of Origin”.

Step 2

Controlled Kiln Drying

We hand select the planks for width and grade, and kiln dry them in our gently controlled lumber dryers. Final moisture contents of 6% to 8% are achieved in order to offer a product that will perform best in most North American home environments. This is very important when kiln drying wide plank woods for interior home use. Commercial lumber dryers normally kiln dry to between 12% -18% moisture content, which would cause excessive shrinking and gaps in the floor. Commercially dried lumber should never be used for wide plank flooring.

Custom Staining

At Woodland we treat every floor like a piece of furniture. Penetrating oil-modified stains are hand-rubbed into each board to enhance its natural grain and character. Helping our customers select the correct stain color to enhance the wood and interior decor of their home is a service we take great pride in offering. Sample boxes are produced with a nominal charge for this service.

Step 4

Our Natural Non-Toxic Finish

We pre-finish our floors with SAICOS Hardwax Oil. A natural plant based Oil and Wax finish, specially imported from Germany. Based on the ingredients of Carnauba and Candellia waxes, along with Sunflower and Thistle oils. This uniquely aesthetic finish is applied and brushed into the woods surface prior to UV Oven drying. It is 99% VOC Free and offers exceptional durability, while remaining flexible enough to withstand the dynamics of wide planks, softer woods and seasonal expansion and contraction. It is guaranteed not to crack, peel or flake…ever! Also, Non-Toxic and resistant to household chemicals and stains of beer, wine, and soda.

Saicos Hardwax Oil is more importantly maintain-able and Refresh-able, follow this link to our Healthy Floors page for further information.
