American Black Cherry Flooring

We source our American Black Cherry logs from the US/Canadian Border. This means that our American Black Cherry flooring is made form the finest slow grown timber taken only from sustainably managed forests, so you can be sure that your purchasing decision is not literally costing the earth.

Cherry has a pale yellowish sapwood which varies greatly from the darker heartwood; the heartwood will darken to it’s characteristic reddish brown colour when exposed to sunlight. Understanding grading is important when buying a Cherry floor as it’s not just about knots and checks. A lower grade will allow far more sapwood to be included giving a greater colour variation than a higher grade, which will be much more uniform in colour. Cherry makes a beautiful and fairly durable finished floor and has an almost lustourus pearlescent quality when finished with a laquer.
