Regal hardwood: what to know

As we have stated before, Mouery's Flooring offers a variety of flooring products that can fit almost any need. Our favorite product to sell is hardwood flooring both solid and engineered. Each of the hardwood flooring types comes with different advantages and disadvantages. However, we are going to talk about a company that sells engineered hardwood: Regal Hardwoods.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

Regal Hardwoods strive for superior floors while also offering competitive pricing. Regal strives to offer a unique look to each of their hardwood flooring lines and styles. Regal Hardwoods create some of their unique looks by authentically hand-scraping or wire brushing each plank. The length of the boards are random up to 7' long.

Regal makes all parts of their flooring from the veneer to the core and eventually the finish.

The core is made of a slow growing Baltic Birch with no fillers. Each of the hardwood flooring cores are able to promote a denser core that prevents less denting and offers more control over expansion and contraction. This also creates a unique product that can be glued, stapled, or floated and installed on any grade level above, on, or below.

Hand-scrapped versus machine-scrapped

Machine-scraped hardwood floors have a repetitive pattern that can make some woods look unauthentic. Authentic hand-scraped wood flooring bypasses that problem because each board is uniquely hand crafted so that no two boards are the same. 

Regal Floors have exceptional craftsmanship. From the deeper grooved, distressed Old Time Luxe to more of a traditional, scraped floor in their Havana, Final Touch, and Element collections. They also have wire brushed floors like their On the 9 or Final Touch, New England collections. These offer a weather and lighter textured look.

Eco-friendly

Regal Hardwoods is dedicated in preserving the environment for future generations. They are FSC certified and comply with California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) stringent requirements for formaldehyde emissions. Regal Hardwoods finishes have low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to conserve the environment. 

There are two types of hardwood flooring offered by Regal Hardwoods: Titanium ScuffGARD and Hard Wax Oil. These flooring types will be discussed in the following videos.

Veneers

Most engineered hardwoods have either a rotary, sawn, or sliced hardwood veneer. Regal Flooring takes their looks one step further and produce their veneers on an offset rotary peel. The offset rotary peel gives the floors a tighter grain and the capability of deeper, richer, and more unique coloring. This unique look is produced by staining or chemically etching their colors on the open cross grains cut by their rotary peel.

HARD WAX OIL

Regal's protective hard wax oil finish enhances the natural highlights of the wood's colors, and the oil brings out the inherent beauty of the wood grain.
