Peerless Douglas Fir Wide Plank Flooring has become recognized as a premium grade solid wood flooring product used in homes, shops, offices and business locations across North America.
For Your Interest… and as critical information about our products.
Peerless only sells natural SOLID WOOD FLOORING… not laminates or composites or so-called engineering flooring. Nothing we sell has toxic glues such as formaldehyde… which are used in the cheap boxed flooring found in every big box store and countless other flooring retailers.
Solid wood flooring products… and paneling… do not contain toxic chemicals.
Further, Peerless only offers solid wooden flooring product made from forest species native to British Columbia.
For well over 100 years, the best known of the BC species used for flooring has been Douglas Fir. Narrow width and clear vertical grain fir flooring can still be found in many an old house, either still in use or ‘rediscovered’ when carpeting is torn up.
We still often supply this type of flooring either for restorations or completely new floors. However, the more common request now is for knotty character style ‘plank’ flooring. Wide Plank Flooring we normally have in stock on common sizes and can offer widths up to 1×10 inches. Peerless Fir Wide Plank can be installed and finished in many ways, from the contemporary Scandanavian Lye Wash or ‘White-Wash’ bleached look, through natural tones to a quite dark character finish.

Old growth vertical grain fir flooring, once a standard in practically every house in the northwest, is now becoming increasing scarce. We have access to this type of log, and do cut vertical grain flooring. We also get some limited quantities of high quality tight knot face grain flooring from the same type of logs. Pieces are of random length up to 12′. Note: Old growth Flooring not always available, please inquire.

Peerless Custom Texture Finish
Texture and raised grain effects including burnt (or carbonized) patina are custom order finishing effects done at our facility.
We can also supply a bandsaw marked mechanical finish. Circular saw marking not available.
Generally the only additional site work to do at time of install is to apply a finish. Usually a very light sanding is done between finish coats…

Facts to consider before ordering
- Unless otherwise offered all Peerless Flooring is “Finish-in Place” which, depending on the grade and style ordered, means it requires some level of preparation after or sometimes before install and prior to finish application. At a minimum this will be sanding, but often will include filling or removing defects.
- Economy, or ‘mill-run’ flooring is the same basic stock as the “fully-manufactured” product except that purchaser must do the end and defect trims and ‘fall-down’ will thus be higher. A good choice for the DIY with the necessary tools.
- End matching is not standard unless requested. “End-matching” is the process of putting tongue and groove on the ends of pieces ( to match the edges). It also involves trimming out the worse defects. End matching adds to product cost but is not really necessary, especially for narrow widths.
