Natural 1850 Distressed Wide Plank Flooring 

Live Sawn is a specialty cut of wood we do which enables us to provide our clients with a very wide and unique hardwood floor.  It is sawn using the Old World European method and incorporates all aspects of the log's character.  It is very rustic with large knots, and varying grain patterns including rift sawn and quarter sawn.  A large majority of the grain is quarter sawn giving it incredible stability which is the reason we can offer it up to 10" wide.  A 7" Live Sawn board will shrink and expand roughly as much as a 4" plain sawn board making this floor the perfect option for a cottage.  For wide planks we recommend a nail and bead glue installation. The live sawn is a perfect floor for dogs.  The natural 1850 is a very unique two pass finish we offer.  It is stained black, then sanded off, and a natural finish is applied.  This method really highlights the unique grain patterns in the Live Sawn Oak.

A Letter From Our Founder

Lewis Gaylord the founder of Gaylord Hardwood Flooring

At Gaylord Hardwood Flooring we’re experts in two things – hardwood flooring and customer service. From the beginning, I’ve taken the time to learn every facet of the industry. This includes:

  • 30 years in the lumber and wood products industry.
  • Graduated from the National Hardwood Lumber Association lumber grading school.
  • Ministry of Natural Resources certified Ontario Log Scaler.
  • Dry Kiln Operator certification
  • 6 years working for two of the largest players in the hardwood industry.
  • National Wood Flooring Association certified hardwood flooring installer/inspector.

My business has been taking pride in delivering quality hardwood products and outstanding customer service for over 25 years. Since 1985, we have been impressing customers with our quality products, honesty, and excellent customer service. Our pre-finished domestic, exotic, and engineered hardwood floors are the highest quality products on the market. Simply put, we make a better product than the competition. At Gaylord, we know that to make the best product, you need the best wood. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. Our competitors use lower quality lumber and cut pieces between the knots. We use a higher quality lumber with fewer defects to cut out, resulting in longer flooring lengths and a better looking floor. It’s that simple. Have an idea? Can’t find what you need? We’ll make it custom for you. Since we’re in control of every element of our manufacturing process, we’re also able to run special orders for our customers. From colour to species to width, we can make your vision a reality. We’ve been providing designers and their customers one-of-a-kind prefinished hardwood flooring since we’ve been in business. Custom installation? No problem. We have more NWFA certified installers than any company in Canada, and they’re all among the best flooring installers in North America. Unusual pattern? Unique situation? No problem. If you’ve got a custom design, we’ll help you get it done. And the best part? All of our products are tested at every stage of the manufacturing process. If we see a product that we know a client won’t love, it doesn’t leave the production line. As we like to say, if it’s not good enough for your floor, it doesn’t go out the door. At Gaylord, we take pride in the consistency of our product and service. Our customers know they’re getting the best, every time, in every way. The moment a customer walks in our showroom, they deal with the most knowledgable staff in the industry. In the rare instance of an issue or concern, we guarantee to rectify the problem immediately. Ultimately, we’re an honest family business. We fully and completely stand behind our products – after all, it’s our name on the boxes. We know people like our products and service because they tell us every day. And since the majority of our business comes from customer referrals, we know your job is as important as the customer who told you about us. So I invite you to take a few minutes, find out about our products, and let us show you why Gaylord Hardwood Flooring has been synonymous with quality since 1985.

Sincerely, Lewis Gaylord Founder and President 

White Oak Wide Plank

“It is always a joy to find trade partners that think and care as much as we do. The staff members at Gaylord Hardwood Flooring are a pleasure to work with. They are friendly, knowledgeable and trustworthy. It was remarkable to see the owner, Lewis, accompany the first delivery to make sure everything went well. We also received a follow up email the day after delivery to ensure our satisfaction with the product. All of our questions were answered promptly and thoroughly. We couldn’t be happier with the quality and appearance of the flooring! Our flooring installer, who has over 25 years’ experience, was impressed with the milling and finish of the Gaylord White Oak 8” Wide Plank Hardwood that he recently installed in one of our custom homes. He stated to us, “It was one of the best hardwood floors I’ve ever installed!”
