Wood Structure

Carlisle is proud to offer the highest quality solid and engineered wood floors.

No matter which option you choose, each floor is made to the same exacting standards. In fact, if we didn’t tell you, you’d never know the difference:

  • All wood is selectively harvested from areas where each species grows best
  • Boards are cut from the best part of the best, most mature timbers
  • Higher percentage of vertical grain increases stability in a wide plank board
  • Multi-layer Baltic birch backing contributes to enhanced stability, performance and longevity
  • 4- to 12-month-long double curing process includes air and kiln drying
  • Our proprietary flooring grades go beyond traditional lumber grading standards, which are primarily designed for the furniture and cabinet industry, allowing us to maximize the artistic characteristics of each board versus a floor made with mass-produced uniformity
  • Each floor made to order using our proprietary SlowCraft™ process to ensure the highest quality standards are met at each phase of “production”
  • 4mm wear layer provides for enhanced longevity and both can be sanded multiple times
