Royal Custom Plank & Parquet is a division of Galleher Corporation. Founded in 1937, Galleher is the oldest flooring distributor in California. RCF fills the needs of those customers in search of a more individually tailored product.
Royal Custom Plank & Parquet features the most comprehensive capabilities of any custom wood flooring manufacturing company in the country. Our state of the art pre-finish line is capable of applying both single and multi-pass stain applications. In addition, we can produce hardwood flooring with either a UV oil or a UV urethane topcoat. Other capabilities include multiple edge bevel profiles, a variety of wire brush options and multiple hand scrape design patterns. Over the years, we have used virtually every species of wood in many different width and length combinations.
Since every floor is unique, the possibilities are endless. For instance, while approximately 10 different patterns make up the bulk of our custom parquet production we have created over 100 custom patterns that have been created by either designers or homeowners. In addition to the standard patterns, we have done many multi-species patterns to create unique and amazing looking floors.
As you contemplate your floors consider the following possibilities…
- kiss bevel
- Mini Micro-V bevel
- Micro V bevel
- Full bevel
- small rounded edge
- larger rounded edge
Wire Brush Effect
- Wire brushing pulls the softer wood fibers from the grain of the wood allowing for a multidimensional look. Royal Custom Plank & Parquet offers wire brushed floors in a variety of options including light medium or heavy. In addition, custom moldings can be wire brushed to match the flooring.
- Color is the most important consideration when choosing a wood floor. While the species of wood is important, our experience shows that the same color stain will look different on alternative species of wood. This is where your designer, wood flooring contractor, and Royal Custom Plank & Parquet representative can help you achieve the perfect floor. Our multi person sample and product development department creates hundreds of carefully designed samples every month. These samples provide a replica of the finished floor to help ease early design decisions. It also assures high levels of quality control during the manufacturing process.
- We use a variety of staining techniques and products to achieve the perfect look for your home.
- Reactive stains (aka active stains) react with the natural tannnins in the wood to create antique effects and natural-looking, integral color.
- UV stains create consistent and deep colors
- multiple stains applied sequentially create complex colors
- multiple stains applied after the flooring has been treated create unique looks where the color in the grain is different than the color in the face of the wood
- Hand scraped floors first became popular in the 1980s in the most exclusive homes in Southern California. The process was initiated to replicate floors that were hundreds of years old. Over time, it became clear that these hand scraped floors actually resisted the appearance of normal wear better than other flooring products. Techniques have evolved over the last 20 years and Royal Custom Plank & Parquet utilizes the most labor-intensive and professional efforts to create looks that are timeless. As trends have evolved many designers have chosen a less aggressive scrape to create a very soft sculpturing affect. Others continue to like aggressively scraped floors that show great inconsistency board to board. Royal Custom Plank & Parquet offers a wide range of hand scrape techniques to provide whatever look you want for your home.
- round or square pegs
- contrasting fillers within gaps, knots and cracks
- chattered edges or ends
- splits within boards
- painted surfaces
- mixed insets – tile, metal, stone
