Red Birch Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring

Jewett Farms + Co’s Red Birch hardwood flooring features light and dark colors within each plank making it a lovely design suitable for both modern and contemporary settings. Because some varieties of birch are so easily stained, it is possible to achieve almost any desired look with this hardwood.

Birch is one of the most popular ornamental trees in America, and several were planted around the White House in honor of the mothers of various presidents. Because of its durability Birch has long been a popular flooring choice and a variety of Birch flooring can be seen in many historic New England homes. Birch is a great hardwood choice for flooring in almost any space. It is more moisture resistant than other hardwoods and is a suitable flooring choice in foyers and kitchens.

Jewett Farms + Co offer both select and character grade Red Birch floors as well as several cut options (plainsawn, riftsawn and quartersawn) from our New England headquarters. Whether you are looking for a Select Grade floor with uniformity of color and pattern or a Character Grade floor with more of the natural characteristics of the wood, Red Birch is a great choice with plank size and finish options to fit your home.

New Hardwood Flooring Options

Select Grade Flooring

Select grade flooring planks have a strong uniformity of color and pattern; each plank will blend well with its neighbor. Natural color and grain pattern come through to show the woods specific characteristics but the planks will lack any obvious blemishes or defects. Select grade is a combination of sapwood and heartwood that shows some knots, streaks and open grain patterning such as swirls and burls.

Character Grade Flooring

Character grade flooring planks show more of the natural characteristics of the wood such as knots and color variations. A character grade floor will have a more varied appearance from plank to plank and will include light and dark colors, knots, streaks and wormholes. The finished look is more natural and less uniform than a select grade floor.

Sawing and Cutting Options

All of our wide plank flooring have multiple sawing options available. Choose from Plain Sawn, Quarter Sawn and Rift Sawn.
