Board
Lengths

Our Random length boards have the longest average lengths in the flooring industry! 

Random board lengths give a floor a more natural feel when compared to fixed board length products. Superior Hardwood Flooring produces longer average board lengths, and exceed industry standards as measured by the NWFA-NOFMA. At lengths up to 90” this translates to a more beautiful floor surface and streamlined installation. As a random length manufacturer, the floors produced from our flooring have an enhanced character and luxurious appeal that a fixed length style floor will not achieve as it becomes a systematic and repetitive pattern. Our superior board lengths make a room feel grand and spacious as the longer lengths create more visual continuity over the flooring area and avoid clustered joint sections.

Random Board Lengths from 10" to 90"

The average board length standard held by National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) and National Oak Flooring Manufacturer’s Association (NOFMA) for prefinished wood planks ranges from 22” to 33” depending on grade and board width. Superior Flooring consistently exceeds the standards by an average of 12”.
