It’s no secret that Mercier hardwood flooring is our favorite and most recommended line of wood flooring. They are considered the industry leader, after all, Mercier is the first company in the world to produce pre-finished hardwood flooring, isn’t that just awesome!

 

Mercier’s line of hardwood flooring is a great option if you are looking for something that will withstand the test of time and last through generations. It has an authentic look with its subtle, earthy tones to compliment any style or décor in your home.

 

 

What is Mercier Hardwood Flooring?

 

Below are a few details and highlights:

It’s truly a customizable Canadian line of hardwood flooring and is made in the per-end user’s requests. The homeowner can fine-tune the following: Color, Species, Grading, Construction, width, Thickness, Gloss level, and Texture of the surface. Therefore, depending on the application and aesthetic of your space, this high-quality hardwood can be customized to your satisfaction. The width can go up to 8-1/8″ making it the widest Canadian board produced. Depending on the thickness needed, you can order your engineered hardwood either in 1/2″ or 3/4″ thickness. This can be very useful when it comes to transitioning your hardwood floor with tiles or other floors in the house. Please keep in mind that due to the overall stability of the product, the 8-1/8″ width planks are only offered in 3/4″ thickness. Lastly, Mercier offers their 4 famous sheen level on their entire line: Semi-gloss, Satin, Matte, and Matter-brushed (only possible for Red Oak, White Oak and White Ash species).

 

Features:

 

Mercier Generations Intact 1000 and 2500

 

Their finish is called Mercier Generations Intact 1000 for residential and Intact 2500 for commercial. Mercier Generations has the highest Leed and Green Guard gold certifications which are indications of zero-emission. Something that a lot of people don’t take seriously when it comes to their floor coverings.

 

Intact 2500:

 

Intact 2500 is a performance-grade finish that is made for commercial applications. This hypoallergenic and COV-free finish can stand up to 2500 cycles when tested by the industry’s anti-scratch Taber testing. This anti-scratch rating is by far the industry-leading number and no other manufacturer has even come close to that. We’ll dive deep into what Taber testing is and we’ll explain the key features that make intact 2500 mind-boggling in our future blogs. For now, remember you’re not just buying boards but you’re buying finished Hardwood. The finish does matter!

 

Generations Intact 2500 is offered for residential and commercial applications with all of their products, except the PRO and Element Collections.

 

Waterproof and scratch-proof

 

Mercier hardwood is also the only manufacture out there to have come the closest in making anti-scratch and water-proof hardwood flooring with the intact 2500. This finish is 52% more anti-scratch than the Intact 1000 and the beauty is that it’s offered now on every color for a small upcharge except the Pro and Element series as mentioned previously.

 

Anti-yellowing

 

Another great thing about Mercier hardwood is that their finishes offer non-yellowing agents. You won’t need to worry about your hardwood flooring turning yellow from exposed light over time, so open those curtains and enjoy that sunshine! Interestingly, this is a common issue with natural maple.

 

Thick wear layer

 

Mercier hardwood flooring has a thick wear layer of 4mm on their engineered hardwood which can allow you to sand and refinish your engineered hardwood if needed in the future similar to solid hardwood.

 

Superior Engineered Core

 

Mercier hardwood flooring uses Baltic Birch for its engineered core. This is a superior engineered core because it’s stronger and denser with fewer voids than the pine, poplar cores that other manufacturers use in their engineered construction.

Quality Control

 

The moisture content of the raw hardwood is strictly monitored and the numbers are between 6-9%. Basically, Mercier doesn’t rush wood to the production line which can lead to problems down the road.

 

Extended Warranty

 

Mercier intact 1000: 35-year residential and 5-year commercial warranty

Mercier intact 2500: 50-year residential and 10-year commercial warranty

 
 

One incredible reason Mercier is astonishing is their philosophy, sustainable sourcing, and environmentally friendly ways of carrying their operations. It’s stunning to know that your engineered hardwood floor is being made and manufactured in a positive environmental way.

 

Mercier is also a pioneer in their industry, being the first company to use modern kiln-drying which they have been doing for over 100 years now. They are always pushing themselves and this just shows that Mercier goes above and beyond for your needs as well as the environment!
