Oak is a classic, very grained variety which provides a traditional look to any décor. PERMABOIS only selects red oak, as it is more aesthetic.


Among the three types of maple, the sugar maple is by far the most widely used. Its wood is harder and less grained than oak. Its natural colour is soft and warm, which makes it easy to harmonize with your choice of dye.

Yellow Birch

PERMABOIS only uses yellow birch from Quebec. It is also a hard wood, and is used to enhance an antique décor.

All essences are offered in plank widths of 3 1/4, 4 1/4 and 5 inches.

The advantages of PERMABOIS | Oiled Wood Floors PERMABOIS | Hardwood Flooring

The sides of each plank are oiled, which eliminates the undesirable colour-variation effect created by the spaces between planks that occur with changes in humidity inside the home. PERMABOIS oiled floors let little to no scratches show, and these scratches can be easily repaired on site, without sanding and without causing odours. Oiled floors become more and more resistant and acquire a rich natural patina.
