Mediterranean Collection by California Classics Floors Tyrrhenian French Oak
Here is a brief explanation about the finish that California Classics
“The finish of fine wood flooring is critically important to both its appearance and maintainability. It should protect the wood floor while preserving the fine details of its character: its grain, patterns and subtle colorations, which you will grow to love over time. A mediocre floor finish will cloud these subtle yet beautiful details.
California Classics partnered with Valspar, a world leader in the aluminum oxide based floor finish business, to develop our unique dual-stain, aluminum oxide based wood floor finishes. Finishes protect the hardwood floor without compromising its beauty-or the environment.
• Intense, crystal clarity that won’t go yellow over time, as some finishes will
• excellent hardness for superb protection
• Enhanced UV protection to protect against sun-bleaching of your hardwood floor
• Environmentally friendly: HAPs-free and zero VOCs making it one of the greenest finishes on the market
When in a flooring store, please compare a California Classics floor finish to that of our competitors. Our super-clear coat enhances the look of the grain, and shows off every nuance of color, pattern and texture. In contrast, other brands’ flooring often has a milky layer resulting from inexpensive hardeners, clouding their finishes and diminishing the appearance of the grain.
When in a flooring store, please compare our true hand-scraped hardwood flooring to typical machine-scraped hardwood flooring. The difference is obvious!“

Blue painter tape is highly recommended to keep rows or sections (also tongue and groove) of floor boards together until the adhesive has cured (using the incorrect tape can harm the finish of the hardwood floors.) During the hardwood flooring installation, tape together 4 or 5 board rows.
This is what the sub floor looks like after we teared up the previous floor which was carpet. Now we will feather out the sub Floor then start the installation after we make sure the floors are leveled.
Here we see Luis spreading the the glue using a V-notch trowel and is applying the adhesive to floor in small sections. Only spread enough for a few rows at a time for best results.
Here you see Ricardo trying to get the dimensions so that he can go back and make a few custom cuts on that plank that he is holding. Ricardo is one of the best Hardwood Flooring installers in the Los Angeles County who pays a lot of attention to details. This client was very Pleased with the finish result and was even happier when he realized both Ricardo and Luis worked at the site.
