Why Choose Marks Lumber's Circle Sawn Flooring

Tags: Flooring

At Marks Lumber, our circle sawn Douglas fir flooring is one of our most popular products. With over 75 years of experience, we know a thing or two about creating beautiful, quality flooring. Here are five reasons why our circle sawn flooring is the perfect choice for your home or business.

Authentic Circle Sawn Texture

At Marks Lumber, all of our circle sawn products are made using our unique circle sawn head rig. Whereas most circular sawn products nowadays are retextured, Marks Lumber’s circle sawn products have an authentic circle sawn look that is difficult to replicate.

So what’s the real difference between the authentic circle sawn look and a retextured product?

Retextured circle sawn products often have an unnatural look to them because the circle sawn marks are very evenly spaced and are all the same depth. With authentic circle sawn products, you get a variance in texture due to a number of factors, such as the moisture content or density of the log. This irregularity creates a more natural Montana look than that of a retextured product.

End-Matched for Easy Install

Creating a product that not only looks great but is also easy to install is Marks Lumber’s specialty. That’s why we end-match our circle sawn flooring to minimize waste and help save you time. With tongue and groove flooring that is not end-matched, the installer must precisely trim each and every piece. Marks Lumber's end-matched flooring allows most pieces to go straight onto the floor without trimming, resulting in a significantly easier and faster installation process.

Sustainably Sourced Timber

When you purchase Marks Lumber products, you can be sure that you are receiving quality, sustainably sourced materials. We take pride in going the distance to find and source timber through foresters who have a vast amount of experience with creating healthy, sustainable public and private forests. All of our timber is sourced locally and brought straight to our mill, where it remains for the entire manufacturing process, which helps keep our transportation emissions low.


Marks Lumber’s circle sawn flooring is made using Rocky Mountain Douglas fir. While Douglas fir is a softwood, it is one of the most durable softwoods available, making it an excellent choice for flooring. The authentic circle sawn texture of Marks Lumber’s wood flooring does wonders to help hide any of the dings and scratches that come with everyday wear and tear. Additionally, if you follow our recommendations and use a high-quality floor finish, you can easily refinish your floors when they start to become a little lackluster in appearance.

Endless Styling Possibilities

From mountain modern to farmhouse to contemporary, circle sawn wood floors look great in any style home, especially when you have the ability to choose your stain and finish. Create a warm and cozy living space with a dark stain, or go modern with a white-wash look. The possibilities are endless! Marks Lumber can provide you with flooring samples so you can let your creativity shine.
