#3 Common is great for low budget situations. This grade, also known as Utility or Builder's Grade, will include all of nature's character such as open and closed knots, mineral streaks and a wide variety of color and grain variations. This grade will have a shorter average board length than higher grades and include defects such as: splits, cracks, open knot holes, broken or missing tongues/grooves, and other natural defects. Because of that, this product is sold "As-Is" and the customer is recommended to use a higher waste factor. The unusable percentage of this grade varies per order and is generally determined by the customers budget, a desire for a natural-looking floor, and the installers experience. Overall, this flooring offers a substantial savings with an end result delivering a beautiful floor with a natural look.
