Our Manchester Maple is a dark brownish colored floor. With a thick 4mm SAWN wear layer that is more stable and a higher quality grain pattern than the peeled veneer which you see on other flooring products. Manchester maple is 100% hand scraped that has a subdued grain with medium figuring and uniform texture. The boards will have some degree of variation in terms of color, tone and grain. Natural wood characteristics such as knots, mineral streaks and some man-made filler marks are to be expected in this product.

The floor can be installed with the combination of 3-1/2"--4-3/4"; 3-1/2"--4-3/4"--7" or it can be installed with single width preferences.
