Understanding Stoehr Flooring Hardwood Products
Species & Color Variation
Stoehr Flooring products are available in 4 different species; Red Oak, Maple, Walnut, and Hickory. Each Stoehr species is true Northern Hardwood purchased from the northern region of the United States. Every hardwood species has a distinct appearance and will vary in color and grain patterns. The natural color variation and markings in all wood species depends on the area of the tree the wood derives from, and the angle in which the wood was cut. The outer area of the tree, the sapwood, will be naturally lighter in appearance, while the inner part of a tree, the heartwood, will be naturally darker in appearance. Knots in hardwood are formed from the branches that were, at one time, attached to the tree. Knots and their surrounding patterns provide a more rustic or distressed appearance in the hardwood flooring.
Monogram XL and Stoehr Hardwood products are available in a variety of grades that vary depending on specie. From the clearer grades with minimal discoloration and markings, to the grades with more character markings and color variation, Stoehr Flooring products are designed to fit every budget and style.

Continuous Strip® Monogram XL vs. Stoehr Hardwood Random Length
Continuous Strip® Monogram XL is a unique continuous end jointing process that results in boards that average 6 ½ feet in length. Available in widths from 2-1/4″ to 5″, Continuous Strip consists of multiple, solid hardwood, pieces that are engineered together to form one long, consistent board. This means that the typical floor will have 70% fewer end joints, and is up to 180% stronger than random length flooring. Monogram XL is available pre-sanded unfinished, or factory pre-finished.
Stoehr Hardwood random length flooring is a hand picked selection of only the best NORTHERN HARDWOOD, providing our customers with solid wood flooring that combines both quality and exceptional beauty. Stoehr’s random length wood flooring is available unfinished, and ranges in widths from 2-1/4″ up to 7″. Ranging in feel from rustic to contemporary, Stoehr Hardwood is preferred when a more traditional choice for hardwood flooring is desired.
Both Monogram XL and Stoehr Hardwood are available in two edge types to maximize the homeowner’s style preference, Square-Edge and Micro-Bevel edge. The Monogram XL square edge option, known as True Squar-Edge®, is produced using a high tolerance manufacturing process that creates a tight and “true” square edge on every board. True Squar-Edge® emulates an on site sand-to-finish look. This edge option reduces the potential of dirt catching bevels making it easier to maintain and clean.
Monogram XL and Stoehr Hardwood are also available in a 2-side or 4-side Micro-Bevel “eased” edge. The Micro-Bevel edge is often chosen when a more informal or rustic look is desired.
