Wood Grades

Hardwood flooring comes in different looks, sizes, styles and grades. Each grade has its own appearance and characteristics. At Bergamo Floors, after we cut the lumber into thin veneers, we sort them based on the appearance separating them in to light Character and Premio (Prime) grades.

Character Grade:
The wood flooring planks may have knots that are filled either with black or color -coordinated fillers. Some filled checking and color variation may be present. Often used to add warmth and character to the interior space.

Premio/ Prime Grade:
The most exclusive and elegant grade in wood flooring. With very few and unobtrusive knots, Premio Grade comes with a very uniformed appearance. This grade is often used to create a clean-lined interior space.
