What is Birdseye Maple?


Do you want a floor that is truly unique?  Do you desire to express your rare and exotic tastes?

Believe it or not, exotic hardwoods are not your only option.  One of the most unique hardwood flooring species can be found right here: Birdseye Maple. So, what is birdseye maple?

Birdseye maple flooring is exactly like normal hard maple, with one exception.  A natural phenomenon creates small figures in the grain of the wood, much like the eyes of a bird, and gives it a unique and whimsical look.  In spite of many theories and extensive research, to this day no one knows what causes this strange figuring.  But one thing is certain: Birdseye maple is a highly valued flooring option.  To give you an idea of just how prized this rare class of wood is, it has been auctioned for as high as $50 per board foot!

But what about performance?  After all, the most unique aesthetic is useless if it won’t hold up under use.  Birdseye maple flooring has a Janka Hardness of 1450 and is excellent for high traffic areas that will see a lot of wear and tear.

All of these benefits are only enhanced when you choose Staybull Flooring® Birdseye Maple.

Staybull’s unique manufacturing process creates an even more one-of-a-kind look, a more durable floor, and a host of Eco-friendly advantages.

For a rare look and an Eco-friendly hardwood floor, look into Staybull Flooring® Birdseye Maple.

What are the Benefits of Staybull Flooring?


Why should you choose Staybull Flooring®?

What are the Benefits of Staybull Flooring? Let’s start with one of today’s hot issues, eco-friendliness.  Staybull Flooring® is made from narrow strips of hardwood.  These strips are actually leftover scraps from lumber mills.  Too thin to be used, these scraps are usually burned or left to rot.  These hardwood strips are glued together using non-toxic adhesives, and the finished flooring plank is coated in a 100% eco-friendly finish.  All of these factors make Staybull® one of the most environmentally healthy flooring options on the market.

Another of Staybull Flooring benefits is an above average stability.  Any woodworker will tell you that wide pieces of lumber are more prone to warping and twisting.  But because Staybull Flooring® is made of narrow hardwood strips, it is far less likely to deform after installation.

You can also expect a long life from a Staybull® floor.  Because it is a type of solid flooring, it can be refinished multiple times, whereas other flooring options would have to be replaced after just a couple refinishes.  This long-term durability is further enhanced when you choose a tough wood species, which brings us to one final advantage…

Beauty.  There is no denying to charm and elegance of a natural hardwood floor.  With several different species to choose, Staybull Flooring® offers something for nearly every taste.  But it doesn’t end there.  Because of Staybull’s unique method of gluing discarded strips together, the finished floor is a one-of-a-kind mosaic that is unavailable in any other line of flooring.

So now the question is: do you want all of these benefits for your home?  If so, feel free to learn more about our line of recycled hardwood flooring.
