May also be referred to as Prime grade, AB grade or 1st grade. Select grade shares traits with clear grade in as much as there will still be a strong uniformity of color and pattern, so you shouldn’t see any glaring differences from plank to plank or in the finished floor overall. However the natural colors and grain patterns of the wood will be more diverse, allowing more of the woods character to come through. For example clear grade wood typically has more straight/vertical grain patterning while select grade will show far more open grain patterning like swirls and burls. As only around 15% of the wood of each tree conforms to this grade it is a more expensive option, but that doesn’t mean it is better. This is a great choice for homeowners looking for a refined, clean and unfussy finish.
