Herringbone, Chevron Wood Floors - Unfinished, Prefinished

Herringbone and Chevron parquet floors are ordinarily installed one piece at a time forming several distinct patterns depending on what you desire. For all intent and purposes the following deals with one piece products. These projects require knowledgeable professionals familiar with the nuances that get corrected immediately before problems spiral out of control.

Chevron Patterns

Chevron patterns are considered part of the herringbone family dating back to the early 1600’s. Instead of an interlocking block like configuration the boards are end milled at a 45 degree angle. Shown below is one custom Chevron pattern finished on site.

How Are They Installed?

Most of these designs are installed by gluing to a wood or concrete sub floor, but doesn't rule out solid 3/4" herringbone nailed to sound and flat sub floors. These projects typically take three to four times longer than standard 2 1/4" strip floors to install, due to the detailed need to insure proper and constant alignment at all times.

Labor Costs?

Expect labor costs to double that of a standard installation due to the time involved and need for an experienced installer familiar with proper layout. I can’t stress enough of the latter. One small misalignment that wasn’t corrected when the job started, tops the list for inadequate jobs or ones that get the most consumer complaints.

Folks, these jobs are for pros, not weekend warriors, but for those engineering pros I hear from on ocassion, it’s very doable providing your knees and back are fine. It's okay enginnered guys. My dad had the same mind as yours. But don't take it overboard.

Unfinished Herringbone & Chevron

The images shown above either site finished or unfinished are manufactured with a square edge. By way of explanation, they do not have micro bevels as the examples of the prefinished Imagination Manhattan, Casual Elegance Rolling Hills and White Oak Character. However, for those seeking an unfinished micro bevel we do offer the option.


Both products are cut or milled with a groove on three sides. Splines are included and used to insure a tight locking connection.

Milling Examples

We take standard milled hardwood flooring, cut to desired lengths (or shapes as in the chevron below) and finally mill the end joint grooves. Precision, precision and more. Each individual piece is run through the machine shown below by hand and checked for fit. This is not a quick automated process.
