Floor: Can anyone identify the wood and stain?


Hi. The floor in the pic - any ideas on what type of wood this is (and the stain)?

Thanks,

Hal

natup,

I suggest you call or visit their showroom and see if they will give you the info about that project. They're located in Toronto like you.

Thanks Jaz. I have yet to hear back from them (btw do you have any experience with Bliss Nor-am steel windows?).

I thought that it might be an easy guess for some of you in the know. Unfortunately it's not a great pic (I don't have enough posts to post the actual link).

The pic is not great but, from what I can tell it looks like clear maple with no stain. Just clear coated.

Thanks woodman. The link that JazMan provided provides a slightly better pic (but not great). I wonder if it is maple but with perhaps a touch of stain and a matte finish. It appears darker than other maple images I've seen.

I looked at the pic from Jazman. I resend the maple verdict. It is really hard to see the grain of the flooring. From the larger pic there are several woods that come to mind. Without a better pic it is to hard to tell. Can't make out the grain or an exact color. Sorry

Would vertical grain Douglas fir come to mind? - perhaps with a grey wash matte finish

No way natup. That floor is hardwood, not Doug Fir.

No reply from Bliss Nor Am?

Maybe try their USA number. However, the US address seems to be a residence.

The only one is too far from GTA, he's around Barrie, Angus I think. But let me think about it. What do you wanna do?

Floor: Can anyone identify the wood and stain?


Our tiles have been set, but not yet grouted. The sub-contractor butchered a good deal of the the job and was fired after we discovered that our new tub was chipped/scratched in 7 places. Apparently, it is not his usual practice to protect the tub.

I should sent him home day one when he showed up without a level (or any protection for the flooring/tub etc.)

Based on my interpretation of TTMAC specs I noted a number of problems that I'd like addressed. The contractor sees it otherwise - he feels that TTMAC specs are more academic - not for the real world. Regardless, at this point I don't have complete confidence in the contractor's ability to hire us a good replacement sub. I may need to bring in someone else to complete/repair the job. It will take us about 6 weeks for the replacement tiles to arrive so I am trying to determine some good options.
