We always enjoy the opportunity to work with new or different products. This parquet floor turned out to be one of our most enjoyable jobs because this type of floor looks amazing when finished. The multi-directional layout of the wood grain has a huge impact on the way the floor looks when stained. This floor was close to being ripped out because the home owner didn't like the old orange colour the floor used to be and didn't know how great these floors look when finished. The colour selection was the easy part, the customer had a sample board they wanted us to match ... we went with the closest colour their floor would allow. The red undertones in the wood naturally come through the stain so this factor had to be taken into consideration when custom mixing the stain.
