Heritage Spalted Maple

Spalting is a unique form of wood coloration primarily found in dead fall trees that have been left to lay on the forest floor for some time. The striking coloration and patterns of spalted woods are highly prized by woodworkers. Spalted maple is shown here in matte natural finish.

  • Installation Methods:

    Installation methods vary greatly depending on site conditions, but here are some general guidelines:

    • Solid wood is typically nailed, or nailed and glued, to a plywood subfloor.
    • Engineered wood is most commonly glued down to concrete subfloors. An additional soundproofing or moisture blocking barrier is often included in this type of installation.
    • Engineered floors are also usually the best choice for gluing down over radiant heat installations.
    • In either format, when planks are particularly wide, gluing and nailing is always good practice if possible.
