The Cape Cod series is the front runner in this flooring line. The Cape Cod hardwood collection features 3/4” Thick solid Oaks & Brazilian cherry hardwood in widths of 3 ” & 2 ” for the Oaks & 3 1/4” & 5” for the Brazilian Cherry. The Select Grade hardwood is imperfection free with no signs of mineral streaks, knots or other bad features such as warping or poor milling. The Cape Cod Collection features an Aluminum Oxide finish that is free of pitting. The surface is so smooth on the Cape Cod that it puts many other high end brands finishes to shame. The Cape Cod Collection features a eased edge and square butt joint as many prefinished hardwood floors on the market today, carries an amazing 50 year warranty for finish and lifetime structural warranty. Cape Cod is produced from a renewable farm and is a green hardwood product that produces only a mere 3% waste factor and is constructed out of Appalachian Oak. This hardwood floor is capable of being sanded & refinished for a lifetime. One feature that stands the Cape Cod oaks apart from the rest of the Prefinished market is the fact that it is harvested & made in the USA. The Brazilian Cherry hardwood is harvested from a managed forest that is Lacey Act Compliant. The Brazilian Cherry of the Cape Cod collection is a TRUE clear grade hardwood floor and is guaranteed to have no Silica. The Cape Cod is just one of the 5 products in the Impressions Hardwood Flooring Line.
What does the stain/finish look like? Many large manufactures will finish all different woods at the same time without making adjustments for each wood because each time they make adjustments it effects the production. The fact is, each wood needs to be finished differently to achieve the nicest stain/finish. Oak requires more finish to ”fill in” the grain or else it will appear very pitted which is not something desirable in an oak floor. You want to be able to hold a piece up to the light and see a perfect smooth finish. Maple requires more brushing than oak so the stain can penetrate into the wood and not appear ”blotchy”. Maple is a beautiful wood and with the proper staining you can really bring out features such as Birdseye and tiger tail. If not stained properly these features are hidden.
