Maple wood floors

In Québec, there are five types of maple: mountain maple, Pennsylvania maple, silver maple, red maple, and the most popular, sugar maple. Mountain maple isn’t used to manufacture floors.
Maple wood floors offer an ideal setting for almost all styles of décor, and they’re renowned for their warmth and elegance. When properly cared for, maple wood floors can last over 25 years, and their beauty often increases with age. If you’re looking for an easy-to-maintain floor that gives charm to your home, maple wood is an excellent choice.
Pennsylvania maple is well-suited to smooth surfaces such as floors, railings, and steps. Silver maple takes its name from the silver colour of the underside of its leaves. Its wood, the colour of which varies from creamy white to pale brown, is heavy and quite hard. However, it’s not as resistant as sugar maple. Its wood is used in the manufacture of furniture and floors. The red maple is considered a tree with quality wood, but it’s of lower quality than that of the sugar maple. Its wood is therefore softer, more colourful, and harder to work with. Sugar maple is renowned for its hardness and its appearance that blends in with any type of décor, for a remarkable style. Sugar maple is one of the wood products that achieves the highest hardness rating. Opt for a sugar maple wood floor that’s both solid and trendy.
No matter which type of maple you’ve chosen, maple wood floors are among the most popular in Québec homes.

Before sanding your maple wood floor, staircase, or railing, our master sanders must repair your maple wood floors, steps, and railings. They must also determine the type and extent of the problem before beginning the repair process.

Repair process for your maple wood floor and steps

L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal and its workers specializing in the repair of maple wood floors and steps carry out board insertions according to industry standards. The secret to performing a remarkable repair is to deal with the existing maple wood floor and steps! By following the original design, the wooden slats blend together with each other and combine harmoniously with the rest of the floor. The repaired wood floor will be even stronger than a brand-new floor! Of course, the new slats will be slightly thicker than the original floor; you’ll therefore just have to sand the places that have been repaired to adjust the level.

Why not choose an oiled floor to give new life to your maple wood floors? Oiled floors: beautiful and eco-friendly!

While stained and varnished wood is in style, the oiled maple wood floor is making its entrance. L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal is at your service for all your needs!

Oil vs. varnish

It’s a horizon that’s changing our outlook and inspiring us to create new oiled floors that will blend in perfectly with your décor. Styles change with the times, but maple wood remains unchanging, and its virtues endure. We appreciate its cachet, its soothing natural side, its serenity, and its warm comfort. For millennia, it has fascinated us with its beauty and its inimitable charm.

An oil product recommended by L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal offers several advantages. Unlike varnishes, oils let the wood breathe. Applying a varnish locks the maple wood floor away under a plastic film that prevents it from breathing, while an oil enables the passage of moisture on all surfaces. Wood that breathes more is less likely to warp and swell under the effects of humidity or very dry air.

Our company in Montréal uses natural oil to protect your maple wood floors and steps to preserve their authenticity and their unique character. This vitrifying coating provides brightness, penetrates the grain, and enhances its texture. When you move around on a maple wood floor that’s been treated with oil, you’re really in contact with the wood. An oiled floor gives you this pleasant sensation that can’t help but evoke the bucolic charms of the countryside.
If, over time, oiled maple wood floors are becoming increasingly popular, it’s thanks to the evolution of the methods for applying oil to your floors and to the improvement in the protection of the oiled floors. At the same time, science has modified the parameters, opening up a whole new world to us, especially with natural oil, or rather natural oils, since there’s a whole range of them.
