Hardwood Flooring Showcases Select Cuts of European White Oak

Cali has launched a line-up of hardwood flooring. The Meritage Collection comprises eight engineered styles defined by crafted beauty and visual character. The collection features European white oak responsibly sourced from Lacey Act compliant forests layered 4-millimeters thick over a sustainable and stabilizing acacia base, Green to the Core. This stratified construction allows planks to be cut longer and wider — 86 inches by 9½ inches — giving rooms a more expansive look and feel. The engineered design also enables each oak tree to yield four times as much flooring.

In the wine world, a Meritage is a French Bordeaux style blend made in California. Similarly, this flooring collection sources high end oak from European forests, and infuses it with an environmentally-friendly California character.

Meritage planks are live sawn, a technique that captures the trailing knots and other visual intricacies of the wood. European oak is well-suited to treatments like staining and fuming, aimed at drawing out additional colors and wood grain details. Both techniques interact with the wood’s natural tannins to give planks a more weathered, rustic character. Its eight styles range from textured taupes like Sauvignon, Mendocino, and Carmel Valley, to the deeper ash of Vineyard, and the full-bodied richness of Syrah.

Meritage flooring is wire brushed, tongue-and-groove milled and shielded by seven coats of a safe-for-the-home aluminum oxide finish. Each plank measures ? inches thick and can be glued down or nailed with a glue assist. The collection is backed by a 50 year residential warranty and a 15 year commercial warranty.

The collection is available for purchase at CaliBamboo.com and from a select network of flooring dealers across the country.
