Maple – Hard / Soft Mix – Value / Budget / Paint Grade

Wood Species / Grade Description

Weight: 2.584 Lb/Sq. Ft (Based on 3/4″ thickness)

WalzCraft manufactures its Value/Budget/Paint Grade wood species with the intent that it be suitable for staining or painting. A minimal amount of checking is allowed. Occasionally, when painting, this checking does not expose itself until after the primer coat has been applied.

When ordered unfinished, if necessary, these small checks can easily be filled and sanded by the customer prior to applying the final coats of paint.

Constructed of Hard Maple and Soft Maple this “Price Point Product” may contain: narrow staves, sapwood, heartwood, pin knots and all other natural characteristics commonly found in both species.

This grade will not be color and grain matched, but will be structurally sound and should prove to be a good value for your dollar. Expect a large range of color throughout the entire order.

This grade is an excellent choice for doors for apartment complex projects or other multi family housing units where economy and value are important.

Due to darker heartwood being present within this grade, some surface cracking may exist.

If staining, this grade is most desirable for a medium to dark stain color.  To reduce the likelihood of a blotchy finish, we highly recommend a “Spray No Wipe” stain process, not a Wiping stain process when using this species.

Note: All Wood Species Samples are shown with a Natural / Clear Coat (No Stain) Finish and will look different when ordered unfinished.

Disclaimer for Color

Actual product color and detail may vary due to individual computer preferences and monitor settings. We highly recommend ordering an actual product sample of the species and stain color to eliminate any confusion. Please contact our Customer Support Team to place your order.
